100 Ways to Introduce a New Character


100 Ways to Introduce a New Character

A problem that has faced many Dungeons & Dragons enthusiasts is that of pulling together a party. Often times, a new character might feel like an outisder in an old party, or choose to be a loner. These manifold issues can be problematic for the narrative of a campaign, as important session time is lost on inter-party conflict that does little to develop the characters or further the story.

This supplement should serve to help with this plight. It includes ways to introduce different characters to a party, based on their class or background. It also gives guidance on how to get a new character to stick around with the party, once their original business is finished.

This product seems nice and well written, however it is not what I had thought and hoped it would be. I hate to be critical, but I think that the name should probably be soemthing along the lines of "100 Story Hooks for New Characters". [...]

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.
