Hi Kenneth, no unfortunately not :(

We did however make Monsters of the Guild print on demand. MotG has several of these monsters in it.

Hope that helps :)

Is there a chance that I can ask for a little bit more detail involving the paladin oath and two backgrounds? At the very least what they're called, and maybe a brief description.

Hi there Ben!

Thanks for picking that issue out, its actually an ability that was meant for another monster from the larger book Monsters of the Guild.

I am editing the layout and will have an updated version (v1.1) loaded today at some point.

Thanks again!

Out of curiosity, why a paladin oath?
Customer avatar
Glen C March 28, 2018 4:46 pm UTC
Heya! Paladin, just because of the charity we are giving out to. The Cleric already has the Life Domain.... The backgrounds are epic too ;)
Customer avatar

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.
