Hi Clive,

We are actively working on the print on demand edition. We have received a lot of great feedback about the book, and we want to ensure the printed text reflects the observations people have made. We hope to have the print edition available soon, and we appreciate your patience.

With regards to Fantasy Grounds, this is something that we can explore more after we have made all the necessary updates to the text. We have had some initial discussions, but nothing is finalized yet.

Havent read all of it yet, but so far it's great and I'm glad to add more magic items to my campaigns!!

One balance "issue" I have is the Elemental Fists and the Elemental Touched Mesh. Fists are rare, require attunement, and they add 1d4 only on unarmed strikes and they also require a bonus action. While the Mesh is uncommon, no attunement, and 1d6 that can used with 1 handed weapons and unarmed strikes(possibly 2 handed? Since that hand is holding the 2 handed) and no action required. Not sure what is the best route to change that but I think some kind of change is needed.

Hi Connor, thank you for your feedback. We will review these two items for consistency, and make any necessary changes in a future update.

If you observe any other concerns, please let us know,

I've read through it and I've found a few more things that probably have a balance "issue" with regarding rarity, attunement, etc. Do you want me to post them here or is there a preferred method of giving you feedback. I only ask just in case writing about the magic items in the comments is an issue, the feed back would be the same style as my one in the previous comment, except some of them I would have some recommended changes/thoughts.

I have no problem doing it here, just wanted to make sure it was okay. My wording for things will be kinda sloppy but I believe it will still make sense in context

Tajak Scimitar: very rare and attunement by a spellcaster, only +1 weapon and a wand of magic missles, both of those items are uncommon and can be used by anyone and dont require attunement, at best this is a rare item no attunement or uncommon attunement, it definitely needs more to be considered very rare.

Tears of Akadi: I don't think attunement makes sense in terms of how it's supposed to be used? I believe you give it to a beast and they can talk but the PC's are practically always humanoids so just like a 1 time use rare item no attunement.

Tempest Howl: only rare and attunement, but it's a flametongue which is already a rare + attunement on it's own, then it's also a +2 and give resistance to a damage type AND advantage to resist being knocked prone. This item is practically legendary level. to nerf it make...See more

Is there a reason it's impossible to use the full set of the Death Knight's Dreadful Accouterments? With 4 items all requiring attunement, it would seem the Death Knights themselves wouldn't be fully equipped.
Customer avatar
Nick P April 17, 2019 2:18 pm UTC
Hi Carter, that appears to have been a little transpositional error - the Dread Helm does not require attunement. The aim with this set is that a character or NPC would be able to wear (or seek) the complete set.

We will adjust this part of the text in an upcoming update. Thanks for calling it out.

For some reason this won't download... Says that the date wasn't found... Feeling like this is either a scam it there is a big network issue. File size listed as 0. What the F?

Does this contain random treasure tables?
Customer avatar
Nick P April 15, 2019 4:15 pm UTC
Hi Travis, there is an index of items by rarity. With a little modification this could be used as a random treasure table.

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.
