The Claw ability on the large theropods like Carnotaurus and Gorgonopsid are intended to be feet clawing attacks right? Their arms are to small for me to see otherwise. The raptors have the same name of attack but they have feet and hand claws and tyrannosaurid feet are not exactly meant to be used like raptor feet are. Not a complaint just clarification of DM combat narrative, getting kicked by a multi-ton dinosaur is gonna hurt no matter what their feet are supposed to be used for.

That's correct, yes. Narratively, getting kicked by a leg strong enough to power a multi-ton animal is going to suck, and mechanically, it's useful for them to have a way to fend off other attackers while grappling with their XXX.
Flavor-wise, bear in mind that part of the XXX grapple with the tyrannosaurs could be them sinking in the meat-hook claws on their short, but very powerful, arms.
Thanks for the review!

Two questions:
1 - This currently lists two files in the download section of my library, are those two files different, or is one newer than the other? If one is newer, how can I tell which one?
2 - Would it be possible to get a version of this with the background texture removed so it doesn't look like I'm printing on granite when I print it with my laser printer?

Thanks, my wife loves dinosaurs, so we're all likely to be eaten my something older than mammals soon.

That's odd, I can only see the one file my end, but I've uploaded a 'v.3' to make things clearer moving forward. I've also added a 'no background' version; that it should be a lot more printer friendly.

I hope you enjoy being devoured by a great variety of prehistoric beasts in the not too distant future (remember, you can also tame, ride, and use them as familiars with your DM's permission!)

Thank you so much! She's very excited to get to rip us apart with raptors!
This is great for printing.

The document has been updated since my review, tuning the CRs, so the point of critique about CRs being off is no longer valid.

I don't think i can change my review so I wanted to let people know here in the comments.

The same goes for the hit point and damage averages.

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.
