The Penitent and the Proud


The Penitent and the Proud is a collection of character options for use with Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition, designed to open your campaign to a wider array of storytelling devices and development paths. Within these pages you will find three new class options:

  • The Recreant (Cleric)
  • The Circle of Corruption (Druid)
  • The Renunciate (Warlock)

Each of these options offer a way for characters of these classes to step outside the norms of their class, challenging the conceits upon which they are based from within. These are not easy paths to power. Players who would select these classes are in for a difficult, but rewarding gameplay experience. GMs who wish to incorporate members of these classes as NPCs will have a great opportunity to challenge the preconceived notions of their players and illustrate the cost of ill-gotten power.

The Penitent and the Proud also includes new advancement options, which allow characters to gain more control and customization as they increase in experience by purchasing alternate class abilities with experience points.

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.
