Too streamlined. There's almost nothing there.

By my count there are over 200 unique occupations, you might want to update the product description?

Any chance you could add simple one sentence explanations of what all of these occupations do? It would really help to have something to rely on/work off of in the inevitable situation where my players ask what exactly a "cellarman" does. Having links to the page in the table of contents would also be helpful with a 600+ page resource like this. Finally, the lack of a period after the note on the number of children mildly displeases me when the format of the description is otherwise well defined.

Another great improvement would be to provide the gender of the person being described but understandably that could be a difficult task if your source material does not come with the information. With knowledge of western culture it is easy enough to figure out "Jonas" and "Daisy" but "Kol" and "Ivellios" are a guessing game.

Totally not what i expected..... It was a million times better!!!!!! Coming up with npc names on the fly has always been an issue for me. But not anymore! Thank you soooooo much for putting this out there! I can't wait to take it for a spin in my campaign tomorrow night! I didn't realize the scope of this product until i purchased it and took my first look. Amazing.

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.
