I don't suppose you guys have blank sheets available, that match the existing sheets, so we can create and add our own achievements?

We did not, but we do now! If you go to "My Library" here on the DMs Guild site, you should now see KingOfTheRoad_BlankScoresheet.png available for download. Thanks for the feedback!

Have you any estimate of how quickly players accumulate points? I'm going to use the accumulation of points in the contest to award the players Talents (from the three great books here on DM's Guild), separately from leveling up using milestones.

Hello! Great question, and I love the idea! This is really largely up to the DM, but a good rule of thumb is to make somewhere between two and five of these available to the players each session. Some might be very easy and/or obvious, while others might be more subtle or hidden. I'd expect there would certainly be some sessions where some players acquire zero points. If you really want a number, I think most characters would probably get somewhere between 5-25 points every 3-4 sessions or so. If you wanted to use another system on top of this one like you're suggesting with the Talents, you can definitely present more opportunities to them during the course of their adventures. Good luck!

Hi there - thank you for this great idea to bring to my game!
We have an Aarakocra in the party, could you also add some race achievements for those feathery things?

Hello! Thanks for the feedback, and glad you like the idea! We have tentative plans to release a follow-up book that covers additional races, classes, and other categories. We have no ETA at the moment though. In the meantime, we encourage you to come up with your own ideas for the Aarakocra. A few ideas might include, visiting the Plane of Air, performing an attack where they dive from above, or defeat a gargoyle, their sworn enemy. Good luck!

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.
