1.2 released! Several mechanical/balancing revisions have been made:

- Shield Proficiency has been removed from the class
- Apotheker's Potent ability now allows your healing spells to heal an additional target by a number of points equal to your INT modifier
- Blackstrider's Aspect of Bones has been modified for balance. Aspect of bones now increases your AC by your INT modifier and grants temporary hit points equal to your proficiency bonus at the start of each of your turns.

Thanks for all the support so far, everyone! I hope you enjoy the class! I will keep updating it as needed!

An upcoming revision will include changes to the Apotheker's ability, "Potent," as many healing spells already add your spellcasting modifier.

Some of the kind folk who have taken a look at the witch doctor have helped me locate some errors that will be fixed in an upcoming revision. Here are the known errata:

Apotheker: there is an error in the text under the "bonus proficiencies" section of the subclass. The second sentence has a wild "and" that should not be there.

The text at the bottom of the "potioncraft options" section is slightly cut off

Spell list: the Shadowmancer has charm person and phantasmal force on its expanded spell list, but they already appear on the general class list. These spells should appear ONLY on the Shadowmancer expanded spell list.

Additional errata: Apotheker's bonus proficiency section should say "when you choose the Apotheker focus," not the "shadowmancer" focus

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.
