Has anyone else notice the duplicate entry in the Critical Miss table?

62-63 “In the process of executing your attack you trip and move back 15 feet and fall prone”

64-65 “ “In the process of executing your attack you trip and move back 15 feet and fall prone”

I wonder what was intended to be different?

So is this like official content or completely homebrew and not accepted by WotC as legit? I remember reading the AL was gonna look at it to give it a stamp of approval, guess they never did huh?

commissioning art is expensive-- but its weird seeing phb art repeated in this book-- it bothers me pretty seriously.
Mixed bag. Great "Ideas" some executed amazingly-- others, deeply broken.

Would it be possible to purchase the "All Eyes on Chult" adventure separately?

Two things to say about the crit tables:
1)How does this interact with things like the brutal critical ability from barbarians?
2)"Alright, roll to attack... nat 1. Okay, roll for effect... 40%, hit self, critical hit. Roll for crit effect... you can make a follow up attack against this target as a bonus action."

I as a consumer would appreciate it if each of the subclasses had a short summary of what it is and does. Because this might influence me to buy it. For example, my assumption for the "circle of seasons" druid is that it runs on an elemental stance system like nerdarchy's overhaul of the four elements monk. That's a druid I want to play, but I can't be certain that this is actually an accurate description of the subclass.

There are a lot of notes in the book. There are some that I know are from Xanathar. (The ones with the red text.) I am not sure though about blue text notes and the black text notes. Do you know the writers of those certain notes? Thank you!

Is the survival domain cleric identical to the one in Return of the Lizard King? Is the entropy domain cleric the same as the one in the Lost City of Mezro?

I love the ideas presented here but there are too many issues to make for confident use. I immediately noticed issues with Sacred Kin Barbarians cantrips and the Way of Atonement Monk.

Gotta fix this up with revisions or errata or something.

+1 to this.

Prior to purchasing this I'd been working on a similar Barbarian subclass concept. Crunching the numbers on BA attack after casting a cantrip, the damage *already* outstrips a Path of the Berserker in its Frenzied Rage, without the drawback of exhaustion after the fact. But to grant the BA attack advantage if the cantrip did damage? With enough confidence in your cantrip to-hit you can forego attacking recklessly at all.

Perhaps even more glaring an issue in my opinion, though, is the Burghal Explorer's "Grazing Strike" feature. With no limit to how many times it can be used ("Whenever you hit a creature with a weapon attack ..."), any monk could take a 3-level dip into Ranger to get an always-on disadvantage to saves against their Stunning Strike, in addition to the bonus damage. Or any Battle Master with their Maneuver saves, etc.

I WANT to love this, but I would think twice before letting any of my players use a number of these options,...See more

I noticed there are a lot of "notes" in the module One with red writing and a circular sunburst symbol and one with blue writing with no symbology. Who are the writers of these respective notes?
Customer avatar

That is the same symbol that is in the Xanathar's Guide to Everything book, which states the notes are from the beholder Xanathar himself

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.
