v2 is here!

We realized we've been using an updated version of these rules that we didn't get to upload here on the DM's Guild, so we're fixing that right now!

Here on Secrets of Alancia we aren't exactly fond of the current incarnation of Wild Shape. We never liked abilities that gave you a creature character sheet, and in fact we still have nightmares with previous editions Shapechange...

We don't think that a creature's CR is a good measure to give Player Character abilities, and giving a single class access to these options breaks the natural progression that other classes follow. So our version keeps the druid HP and stats, standardizes its damage and AC, while still giving the form's natural abilities, movement and senses. We fully understand that it makes the druid "weaker" (as in not broken) than the PHB, but that's intentional.

Inside you'll find the same rules found in our Druid Archetypes, but free for the taking. Of course, if these rules help you then consider giving us a tip or taking a look at our archetypes.

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.
