{B5} Way of the Shifting Sands - D&D 5e Monastic Tradition

Suggested Price $0.50

The Tiefling man stood in defense of his tiny desert town, as bandits rode on camel-back over the horizon. He'd never used the way of the shifting sands in battle, but was confident that his masters had put their faith in him for the right reasons. The bandits rode ever closer, drawing their scimitars from their scabbards and raising them above their heads, war cries bellowing against the wind.

The rest of the town retreats as the Tiefling stands in silence, waiting for the perfect moment. The bandits are gaining ever closer and the screams of the townsfolk are getting ever louder as their impending death is upon them. The tiefling raises his hand, and a huge wall of sand raises with it, following and mimicing his movements not but 30 feet in front of him. As the first of the bandits rides within range, the man shifts his hand horizontally. The wall of sand moves at rapid pace across the desert, the first of the riders are knocked from their camels and pulled within the risen dune. Their screams becoming muffled as their lungs fill with sand.

Align yourself to the powers of the desert and carry them with you wherever you go, with this new monastic tradition for D&D 5e, the Way of the Shifting Sands.

Monks of the Shifting Sands spend years in the desert, learning to command the powers of the sands. They harness their Ki to allow themselves to shift their body into a granulated structure, and can harness the power of the sand dunes in any situation.

As a character proceeds further along their path into this monastic tradition, they will find their ability to harness the powers of the desert increase drastically, until they themselves can become a sandstorm.

A solidly designed class that's pouring over with theme. Every ability just feels right and let's you feel like a master of sand right out of the gate; the ability to switch out the damage from an unarmed attack for a Constitution save to avoid blindne [...]

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
