I checked just now and the pdf is still fine. It might be your reader or settings. The text should appear black under normal conditions.

Here are the notes:

Restored and revised missing Torm entry in Divine Allies section.

Revised entry on Jazirian’s realm in Celestia, Afterlife section.

Fixed Falazure’s entry in Divine Enemies section, adding his portfolio of exhaustion.

Added a paragraph about Siamorphe’s Noblesse Court at Lunia in Afterlife section.

Added entries for the plane of Dragon Eyrie and Bahamut’s fortress in the plane of Dragon Eyrie in Afterlife section.

Exclusive Spells: Fixed an error on “Breath of the North Wind”, swapping “failed” and successful” on saves.

Changed the resistance in the exclusive feats from “evil dragons” to “dragons”. Sometimes a servant of Bahamut might take a breath attack from a non-evil dragon while trying to talk with them or protect them, especially if they’re a panicking youngling. It’s still very situational so it shouldn’t be problem...See more

I might not finish the Trial of Asmodeus this week but at the very least I'll do the next Bahamut update this weekend.

It won't be as extensive as the previous update but I learned some interesting things to add.

I'll be posting a v1.3 update soon after I finish up with writing the Trial of Asmodeus. That's probably sometime this month. A smaller update, with some fixes and some new lore.

The Trial of Asmodeus has been challenging to write to say the least. I'm getting there but if it takes too long, I'll take a break this weekend to do the Bahamut update.

Breath of the North Wind: should be "Hostile creatures within the area of effect must make a Constitution saving throw, taking 6d6 cold damage on a failed save, and half damage on a successful save."

v1.1 had to be removed because it contained a term referring to a certain space-based DnD setting, in compliance with DMsGuild regulations.

After assessing how much I want to add to or revise in the Bahamut pamphlet update and how much time I am allocating to it this week, the next version will definitely be up next week, but no sooner than the middle of the week.

An update for the Bahamut pamphlet with added lore is coming soon, possibly in the coming week since it's next after the Kelemvor update that's going to be done within the next couple of days.

The current document seems fine at the moment for download (at least on my end), in case anyone is wondering.

I just grabbed this and I get an error that the file is damaged and cannot be repaired. Double check the file in case there is a larger issue, but it may just be on my end.

HEy qucik question , your PDF says Divine Portfolio: Justice, Wind. is it me or this is not whats in the PHB ?
Customer avatar
Johnny T June 08, 2017 7:23 pm UTC
It's expanded detail based on research across multiple editions. The PHB only mentions the basics.
Customer avatar
Johnny T June 08, 2017 7:26 pm UTC
Bahamut is the general go-to deity for good dragons but he does have specific things that he's known for or presides over. The 5e PHB doesn't include that info.

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.
