Found a problem with the Floating Skull

Despite most of the flavor text being about how the skull will talk and joke incessantly under language it says: "Understands, but cannot speak, one language"

A few typos I noticed:

Hell pups are referred to as "hell pops" in the first line of their description

The description of the Bastet says "that is as as native, as much as a cat can be," which I assume is meant to say either "that is as native as a cat can be" or "that is native, as much as a cat can be"

"In form, the krasue In form the Krasue is nothing more than a severed head"

In the Kal'eidik description: "I begin to start the stones upon myself." I assume that "start" in this case is supposed to say "stack."

"As a bonus action the kal’eidik can invert itself and take the dodge action as a bonus action." Is redundant

For the Blood Forged Collar invocation, is the intention that your familiar continues to gain hp as you level? Because, the wording kind of makes it seem like a one and done, which would make it seem best to wait to take the invocation at 20th level.

I see exactly what you mean. The intent is that it scales with you as you level up. Ill give it a mull over on how to work it better and update it. Thank you!

I've been looking for somthing like this! a few editing.wording notes and odd choices i'd like to note for you though

1.the Blood Forged Collar invocation says "when you take this FEAT"

2.the Weakning stare feature for the Skoffin says "Refused" by 1d4 did you mean reduced?

3.for the hollyphant calf what is the purpose of the other half of their shimmering fur ability when they already have advantage on saving throws vs ALL magic not just cantrips because of magic resistance?

4.the wi-fi specter says 'spector' in a few lines

Thank you very much! No matter how many times you edit and revise you always miss some things.

I will get them updated ASAP.

Bloodforged collar should be When you choose this Invocation.
Weakening Stare should infact say 'Reduced'
Hollyphant is just a case of being a bit too redundant.

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.
