Chris, I thoroughly enjoy your line of products! Just a couple thoughts on Blacksmithing. I think the jewelry section should be removed and placed in it's own product, since Jeweler's tools are a separate proficiency. Masterwork light armor has no benefit for being of higher quality, shouldn't there be some type of benefit to make it worth the cost? I am thinking of giving it a +1 bonus to AC in my game. Any thoughts? Finally, have you considered creating a "Poison Making: Defined, Refined, and Usable" product? I think it would be fantastic!

Jeramie, first thanks and I hope this product expands your game. In an odd twist of fate I responded to another comment first and I repeat- you are gamer after my own heart. Correct, masterwork light armor really has no added value; it looks nicer... I think that any benefit you want to assign it which makes your game more enjoyable for you and the players is a great idea. If you are looking for some other masterwork armor benefits, I have had players request; shiny to make them stand out as leaders, dulled to help them hide, quiet to help them sneak, such benefits could grant advantage on the associated check. Poison making; I had not thought of it I am busy on my next piece which you will definitely enjoy and you will ENJOY IT FOR FREE! Send me an address, I will give you all my other works and the next one as complimentary copies.

As much as I do not agree with the fact that the katana "is the most masterfully-made weapon in existence" (fun fact: although it is very difficult to break it, but thanks to its blade structure when it does bend it has to be reforged from the ground up), your work with this supplement and the Herbalism one is truly outstanding!

Major kudos, really ^_^

Federico, consider that sentence an opinionated piece of flavor text... I just really dig katanas..... Thanks, I hope that you get to use both often in your game.

I know, I really like them myself xD I would like to warn, though, that the sentence might cause a bit of flame, especially with "long sword fanboys" (category which I recently managed to flee from myself, have to admit to my personal shame).
I am actually planning on using Blacksmithing next session, while I have already used Herbalism a couple of times for science's sake and I have to admit: they look complex, but really they are very easy to use!

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.
