Aarakocra Subrace: The Earthbound

Aarakocra Subrace: The Earthbound

Suggested Price $1.00

Aarakocra, native to the elemental plane of air, spend their days in the skies, landing only to tend to their nests and sleep. But Aarakocra that become injured, cursed or separated from elemental magic lose their ability to fly without strain, and they become earthbound.

This microsupplement provides one subrace and one feat, as well as some hints on how to build a character overcoming a great personal tragedy.

This article is great! As WotC noted when they first released the Aaracokra, flighted PCs can really add a wrinkle to an adventure. This alternative provides a great way to add Aaracokra without such potential problems. The author has added fanastic [...]

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.
