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

Hey Charles,

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 would love to be able to leave a review, but for some reason can't. I love this book and can't wait to implement it into my Forgotten Realms campaigns. My only complaint, and it is minor, is that Sharess was not included in the book.

Hi, Robert! Thanks for purchasing the book. I am happy to hear that you like it. Sometimes, the system takes a few minutes or longer to update and allow purchasers to leave a review. If you check back in an hour, you might be able to access the review tools.

I hope you have many great gaming sessions ahead using the new content! We are currently working on content for the other deities of the Forgotten Realms. I'll explore options for including Sharess in the lineup.

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.
Customer avatar
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.

Terry, thanks for the question and interest in the print version. We ordered the review copies last week.

I don't see there being any issues with the review copies, but we just have to be sure before making the print option available again.

Great work. One question, though - under Selûne, "moonblade" is described as a 2nd level spell, but you list it as a 1st level spell in the Silverstar Domain.

Can you please correct whichever of these is a mistake?
Customer avatar
Scott B July 07, 2018 12:47 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi, Joseph! Thanks for letting us know about this. After reading the spell, it's definitely 2nd level. I sent a message to the author of that archetype to see how we'll handle this. We'll have to move the spell to the 2nd level domain spot and replace it in the 1st level spot with another suitable spell. I would replace augury with moonblade in the 2nd level spot, and put faerie fire in its 1st level spot, but I would have to confirm that with Alex.

So I ordered a print copy and pdf copy already, will I have access to revised pdfs to make edits in my books?
Customer avatar
Scott B July 06, 2018 4:08 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi, Chase. Yes, the PDF was revised within hours of us being made aware of the omitted spells. You should have access to the full PDF with changes added and a small errata Word document that describes the changes. The layout didn't change significantly as no pages were added. There were two spells added for Silvanus and one for Corellon. I also added one line to the end of the Dawnstone artifact description that explains that it regains all its charges each day at dawn.

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.
