I checked out my friends copy. Amazing amount of content. I found many of the subclasses a bit underpowered though. Especially the lvl1 Cleric powers giving stuff like +1 damage to fire spells or some tool proficiency. You can of course work with you DM to power them up.

Not sure if I missed it or not, but I'm not seeing anything on Gwaeron Windstrom. Kind of disappointed since it did have a write up in the Sword Coast Adventure's Guide.

Yes, Gwaeron Windstrom is covered in the book, with an entry in the 'Deeper Faiths' section on page 11, and again in the archetypes chapter on pages 75-77. The digital edition also includes bookmarks for those sections and entries in the index at the end of the book.

Thanks for asking and for your interest in the book. I hope you have lots of fun playing D&D!

Love both of these books! Have a part 3 coming out soon of some of the other deities?
Only suggestion. The table of Contents could be a bit more useful. Be nice to list each of the deities. Even if in alphabetical order, quicker than scouring both books.

Thanks for your feedback, Eric, but Alas, while I would love to produce a third book with some of the demi-powers and lesser-known deities, we had some difficulty keeping the team together and focused on the second book. Also, if the PDF is updated, then the physical book also has to be updated, and since the print on demand program was in testing and has since been put on hold, it isn't likely that we'll be able to update the book anytime soon.

The biggest issue I had with the table of contents was that we covered most of the deities in several chapters of the book, which would have required hundreds of entries in the table of contents. If I'm able to update the book, I'll probably combine the background lore and archetypes chapters and expand the table of contents.

Sorry got another question already. The Doomtide spell in the Beshaba domain and oath is 5th-level, but it is in the 4th-Level place on the spell tables. Is it supposed to be a 4th-Level spell?
Customer avatar
Scott B October 19, 2019 2:37 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi Daniel, Doomtide should be 4th level, and it should scale using a 5th or higher-level spell slot. I'm happy to answer any other questions you have; I appreciate you bringing potential errors to our attention.

Hi question regarding the Oath of the Untamed Wind. In the Oath spells Warding Vortex is listed to be gotten at 3rd level, but is a 2nd level spell. Is Warding Vortex supposed to be 1st-Level?
Customer avatar
Micah W October 18, 2019 11:39 pm UTC
PURCHASER
Hi Daniel. Warding Vortex is intended as a a 1st level abjuration spell, and is obtained by Akadi's clerics at 1st level and paladin's at 3rd level. The spell entry states 2nd level evocation, which is a copy/paste mistake most likely.

Hi one question before I make this purchase, is all of the lore of the deities, holy sites, holy texts, magic items and artifacts legit? Or did you create them, this is important to be because I like to use official Forgotten Realms things in my campaign. Thanks

The Raven Queen is not in this book. I'm not sure that deity is open for the Guild, but I'll look into it.

Hi Gabriel,

Thanks for asking. I'm not sure there is room on the product page to post a complete list, but I'll look into it. Otherwise, the gods covered in this book are the same covered in the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide for the Faerunian pantheon.

Hello! First off, I love this .pdf so much! I have a question about the spell False Dawn. Most of the spell pertains to dealing with undead but one section specifies creature ("The creature is outlined in a dancing fiery aura..."). Should that actually be undead or does that part of the spell work for any creature inside the 60 foot sphere?
Customer avatar
Scott B November 24, 2018 9:57 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi Devious,

Thanks for the question. Micah made that spell but I may have edited it slightly from its original version. I'll often vary the wording to reduce repetition. From reading the spell right now, it looks like the last paragraph clarifies that the fiery aura only affects undead creatures. I'll send Micah a message to see if that is how he intended the spell to work. I hope you like the book!
Customer avatar
Scott B November 25, 2018 1:12 am UTC
CREATOR
Hi Devious,

Yes, I just confirmed with Micah that the spell only affects undead. I should have stated 'undead creature' in the first sentence so that it would be more clear that the use of 'creature' in the following sentences referred to the undead. Thanks for bring this to our attention. I'm glad you like the book!

Sorry, that deity wasn't included. This reminds me that I need to post a list of the deities on the product page. The deities included in this book are the 48 main deities of the Faerûnian pantheon included in the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide plus Corellon and Moradin.

I'm thinking of ordering the Hardcover Color Book (Premium Heavyweight) do you have a picture of the cover art, you have preview of some inside pages (which look great) but before i make the leap from the pdf to the hardcover I'd love too see a preview of the book cover.

Hey,
I'm very satisfied with your product overall. However, since I'm trying to catalogue all my third party ressources (including updating spell lists) I'm a bit confused about the spells in this volume. Actually, I just don't see any section regardings spell lists, as in: who actually get's to choose the new spells. Is it only clerics? Is it clerics and paladins? Only paladins? Rangers? Druids? Bards? I would greatly appreciate it, if a spell list (like the ones in the PHB or XGtE) would be added to the book.

Scott B July 24, 2018 10:59 pm UTC

Hi, Clemens. I'm glad you are happy with the product. That is a good question. The spells included in each deity's section are meant to only be available to those archetypes. However, the spells should also be available to other spellcasting archetypes that worship those specific deities with the DM's approval. The spells are meant to add flavor to the archetypes of a particular faith. If we had expanded and added additional classes, the spells would also be available for the additional archetypes. For example, a bard of Milil should have access to the spells listed for that deity.

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.
