"A quick glance down the authors column of this high quality book reveals some of my favourite D&D creators - and they certainly deliver the goods! Everyone will find something to love in this fantastic volume. The DM in me really enjoyed the new sanity rules, the story items, and - chaos armor! Players will savor the host of new subclass options. And the whole thing looks FANTASTIC - as if it just rolled off the presses from WOTC. This book will sell thousands..."
M.T. Black, DM's Guild veteran author/designer

Hi, just received my print version and have given it a read-through. Great book, and love the print option, but I do have one question. Did you mean to imply, by wording and putting them under the Critical Failures section, that Ability Checks and Saving Throws can already critically/automatically fail as a result of a natural roll of 1 or that that was the proposed optional rule?

Listed in AL content catalog as DDHC-TOA-14 for adventure ONLY!! None of the character content is AL legal.

Minor note I noticed, PotSacredKin and Divine Herald should get thier first 4th level spell slot at 19th level. That's how it is for arcane trickster and Eldritch Knight. Also, doesn't everyone already have proficiency with unarmed strikes? (PotCH) and maybe restrict the improvised weapon damage to 1d6 max? Great supplement! (Also con is way more powerful in 5e, maybe change potsk spellcasting to Cha?)

Could you list If the adventure is AL legal and its levels in the short summary?

Bottom Line Up Front: I'm happy I purchased the pdf and I'm glad I did not purchase the Softcover color book.

I have enjoyed prepping the adventure, but it can be frustrating when a room description describes people "engaged in an intense game", and then the DM subtext says those same npcs are sleeping. The good news is that these files can be scrubbed for errors and updated, so I'm overall satisfied with the pdfs. I'm glad the adventure is Adventurers League legal and I look forward to seeing more of this type of content. I'll submit my review after I actually complete the adventure with a group of players.

I have a question. I understand activating an runic augmentation is a bonus action. Does it have any Verbal, Somatic components?

Additionally can the Runic Fighter dismiss the an active augmentation as a bonus action.

Not going to lie, I got the PDF online for free. I'm sorry for not paying for it but I don't have much spare cash at the moment, you can contact me at severiangeerts@gmail.com if you'd like me to delete the file from my laptop, or if you'd like to know the link to ask them to remove the file from their website. I will not be posting the link where I found it as to avoid hurting the sales of the product.

With that out of the way, I just want to say amazing job. This looks and reads like an official D&D supplement, and it's definitely worth the price tag if you have the money. The classes I've read seem balanced and the Chult chapter seems like something straight out of Adventure's League. Loads of new features with interesting and unique ideas throughout and the notes are a very funny addition. I would highly recommend buying this book, and I know I will properly pay for it as soon as I can. Best DMs Guild item I've downloaded so far, by a long shot.

Were the errors corrected? I would love to buy it in print, but only if they were corrected

No. Since it reached platinum and it's sales topped out I doubt they care. Use the guild adept label to sell a few thousand copies and call it a day.

I respectfully disagree. Sorry for the delay. We've just all gotten fairly overwhelmed with a ton of new projects that also have their own deadlines. Not only are we planning on going through the book again, we also have some additional plans for this project, which we'll be announcing once we have it ready to go. :)

Well, the comments on the editing combined with the atrocious ideas of critical fail/hit tables are enough to say I won't be paying money regardless of who it is that is involved in the writing. Too bad, because a lot of it looks interesting, but if I want crap editing, I can do my own fails.

Also would love to buy the POD but I need to know that it's gotten that editing TLC.

I would love to buy this in print, but I'm waiting for another revision. Still sounds like there are a lot of errors.

I was totally ready to buy the physical book of this until I read how many errors are in it. I guess I'll just wait...

Anyway you could all agree to get his converted to use in Fantasy Grounds VTT format? I think this would sell fairly well, above and beyond what it has done already.

Hello I was wondering from where the softcover book would be shipped if I'm going to order it from Italy. Is it from US?
Customer avatar

I would also be interested in where it's shipped from, as a UK resident. I've been burned by import/shipping fees from the US before.

Amazing! One of the best fith edition books for both players and Dm's. A players Handbook 2 in all the best ways, especially for the price. Scoured through my print version and ordering a couple more for my group. Must Have.
Well Done

Format
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.
