I was wondering if you would be adding any talents for the new elf sub races from unearthed arcana

Were you planning on including the Aasimar/Firbolg/ETC in the monstrous talent book, if you are including the monstrous races themselves?

Yes. Any of the playable races from Volo's guide will be included in the Monstrous Talents book.

A couple of questions:
1. In the 'Ambuscade' talent it says that you can take an extra action or, if you are surprised, you are no longer subject to those effects. The prerequisite is that you have the 'Alert' feat, which gives you essentially immunity to being surprised so long as you're conscious. Is this worded as intended (i.e. solely for avoiding being surprises during rests) or an oversight?
2. 'Combat Reflexes'. Is freeing up a reaction while still allowing AoO balanced in your playtests?

Hi Reece!
1. It was an oversight. I had copy-pasted the Ambuscade definition from an old UA ranger version and forgot to remove the 'surprise' section. Thanks for catching that one. I'll edit it out in the next version.
2. The first version we playtested was part of the UA's fighting style Tunnel Fighter. It was balanced in this way because it required the fighter to be in a stance that required an action to use. My mistake was removing the stance and never thought of an abuse that could take advantage of it. When someone pointed out that a fighter/rogue with reach could infinitely immobilize anyone who moves in within 10 feet, I changed the talent to only target creatures within 5 feet and you can only make up to 2 opportunity attacks now, but still without the use of a reaction. After a playtest, it was more reasonable.

I really like the first Talents release and plan on using that in future games (especially if/when D&D Beyond releases the capability to homebrew feats), but I plan on waiting for Xanathar's Guide to release before looking at the next Talents installment.

You do good work! I look forward to a future iteration.

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.
