Is this piece considered adventure league legal?

Sadly, no.

What I really miss about this product is a printer friendly version without the background color. (Same for the companion monster book.) Could it be done in a future update?

What is the misty escape spell and where can I find the rules for it? Or do you mean the misty step spell? Listed as one of the abilities for dhampyr

You are correct: that should be misty step.

At one point, the dhampyr had an ability called "misty escape" that let them use misty step. But the wrong name made it through the revision. Thanks for catching the error!

Might be a DMsGuild or local internet issue, but I'll upload the files again to be safe.

Looks to be a server side problem of the site. Loads for me, but takes some time. Seems to affect other products.
But thanks for the head's up.

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.
