Hey! I can't review your content on DMsguild, because I'm a publisher, but here's a link to a more in depth review.

(You have to copy and paste the link, unfortunately)

Overall, I really liked it, especially the artwork.

Thanks! Really appreciate the detailed review and duly noted down areas for improvement for the next revision. In the meantime thought I'd pick up on just a couple of points you mentioned...

The weather table idea was that the weather would remain the same, eg. warm and sunny, but the feel of it would change based on temperament of the god, eg. angry could mean 'close and claustrophobic'. If a double is rolled, the weather type changes based on a second roll on the right side of the table.

The CR budgets roughly work for a party of any size since it uses the party's total level score as a basis. I wrote a blog post about how I arrived at those numbers here: http://lukearl.com/gaming/dnd-5e-encounters-cr-budgets

The gems on the weapon table are meant to be the damage dice for each weapon. Have had other comments about this so it's certainly not obvious enough yet.

Format
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.
