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?

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!

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
CREATOR
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. They haven't shipped yet, but I'm hoping they'll arrive before next weekend, and then be available shortly afterward. 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.

Hey Scott, I did not see that below until you pointed it out, sorry. But what I meant if I buy it, will it be printed by WoTC or DMG? Would WoTC consider this a third party published book?
Customer avatar
Scott B June 29, 2018 10:04 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi, Joseph! The book is printed by OneBookShelf's vendor through the DMs Guild. It would be considered a third-party product, though the DMs Guild and WotC receive their royalties from the sale. Alex, Micah, and I collaborated to produce the content using our in-depth research of both previous and current edition materials.

I ordered both copies of the hardback versions to review before release, and the print quality is very high (Better than expected). The pages are very thick and the binding should hold well too. I was careful to keep non-white colors away from the book's spine while laying it out to improve the glue's hold. The main difference between the standard and premium versions is the ink quality.

We have some great art in this book, with well over 100 images gracing its pages. The colors are more brilliant in the premium version, but the standard looks good too.

Is the original FR Corellon here rather than the MToF version?
Customer avatar
Micah W June 27, 2018 3:57 am UTC
PURCHASER
Hi Katherine

Corellon in this publication is based on the original FR version from previous edition sources. MToF was not an available resource during the development of this product.

In future products we plan to account for any additional official sources WoTC might release as much as is practical whilst maintaining consistency with our product line.

Katherine L June 28, 2018 5:31 pm UTC
IMHO I prefer FR-only content for FR resources unlike MToF so to me this is a plus. Thank you.

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.
