A Call to Action! Robust Rules for Action Points in 5th Edition


Do you need more action in your life? Have you ever needed to push your luck so you can score an attack? Have you ever needed to twist your blade to slay your foes? Have you ever needed to push yourself to dash and dive out of the way of a fireball blast? You just might need action points!

Action points have been a staple of D&D since 2004 with the first publication of the Eberron Campaign Setting. Since then, they’ve been part and parcel of the game—at least until 5th Edition. 

A Call To Action! corrects this omission by providing robust rules for action points that are tailored for your 5th Edition game. Inside, you’ll find general uses for action points that any character can use, as well as special uses based on their character race or class. 

Not only do we provide you with the rules, we also let you peek behind our DM screen where explain the reasoning behind the rules so you can apply them to new cases. We also provide a number of examples of action points in use at the table. 

Why wait any longer? Leap into action before it’s too late!

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.
