I made a purchase recently, but paid the wrong amount! Is there anything you can do to help me?

What was the amount you intended to pay, and what did you pay?

Looks good but a Guild related problems. You do not have the WotC/OBS Legals within the adventure. This could lead your publication to be withdrawn from sale. May pay to check your others as well. I know this is PWYW but it would look better with a map and a cover with the guild logo too (nothing flash, just practical)

Had a great time playing this the other night. It was our first time in Ravnica and we were on a little bit of time crunch cuz we were playing with a 13 year old who had school and her Mom who works early. We also had a party of 6 so decided to keep the original balance for 4 players due to the time crunch. My only note for this is adventure is on the Haunt of Hightower. I feel like he could use some of those good ol' vampire resistances, some saving throws and skills as well (stealth for sure). The action economy was very skewed for my group especially with 6 players and no lair/legendary actions, maybe make the ringing of the bell happen on initiative 20 and everyone makes low DC con saves or suffer thunder damage, maybe get knocked prone or be stunned on a failure of 5 or more. If the Haunt is getting thrashed, throw in a gargoyle or two to back him up. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Thank you for your feedback! I had originally tried not include lair actions to have a vibe of the Haunt being a creature that prowls the streets, and is still new to Hightower. In addition, you could use Shadow Steakth more, especially if party members have the ability to cross rooftops, and create a circular chase scene ending at the bell. You could also up the healing from Feast on Fear. Finally, you could a Specter or Indentured Spirit as a bell-ringer, and have them use their action to stuff characters in the bell and then later ring it. Ultimately, I’m still playing with your suggestions (you could implement those too, or use some of mine as work-arounds). Your constructive criticism about scaling is very helpful.

in the level 1 with the two priests, which stats blocks do we use?

The priest statistics from the Monster Manual. Some things could be reflavored: the mace could be an Orzhov symbol mounted on a staff, for instance. You may also want to swap spells for some on the Orzhov spell list from Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica.

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.
