5/5 - I have purchased the product, but the website is acting up. I ran this for a mixed table, Average party. They decided to take the Divine Hunt route, where I promptly knocked out half the party with its breath weapon. I decided to focus less on the breath weapon, more on eating the party. by the end, it came down to a javelin in the eye while 3 people were down and eaten. Was fun, though the final fight is a bit of a let down compared to the divine hunt

5/5 Full disclosure: I did not pay for this, as I know *someone* (undisclosed source) who was running this at a Con and had a copy they gave me so I would have an extra week to prep (I ran it the day after it came out on DMSGuild). It's so good I literally just payed for it anyways, but for some reason it won't let me review it without buying it (which I just did).

So I had this a week before I should have had it, and while preparing it it looked fairly straightforward, with the storyarc being wrapped up, and the big duel and fight and all. Probably looking like a 4/5 or 5/5. Then I saw the stats on the Beast of Talos... Sweet Jesus that is a nasty fight! Even adjusting for a weaker party (they weren't) and not recharging his breath attack I'm shocked I didn't TPK them. It wasn't as bad as Mother in DDEX3-16 (a T3), but it's scary close.

Just wanted to put this here to help others who have the same confusion I did. Perhaps minor spoiler, though.

For the Beast of Talos, the Force of Nature ability should read: "If the Beast of Talos DOESN'T act first in Initiative, it acts second." (as stated by author Greg Marks in response to someone else asking how the trait worked. Also, the capitalized emphasis is mine.)

Basically, because the beast is so awesome, it either goes first (if it wins initiative rolls) or second (if it loses initiative to anyone). Took me a bit of searching to find this, so hopefully this helps someone.

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.
