Better Guards

Suggested Price $1.99

12 guards designed to accomplish 2 goals:

  • Feel as unique to fight as a phase spider. Like the Captain of the Guard here with her Investigate ability.

Investigate. Mark a creature the captain of the guard can see as wanted. While the creature is within the captain of the guard’s political reach, they must succeed a DC 16 stealth check every hour to prevent guards showing up hot on their tail. Only one creature can be marked at a time.

  • Recreate classic moments with guards in fantasy literature. Like the 3rd Watch Recruit's with his Take Em' Out ability.

Take Em’ Out. A creature the recruit cannot see may succeed a DC 16 Stealth check to defeat the recruit without raising the alarm. A creature with proficiency in thieves tools makes this check with advantage.

Other guards include:
The Cardinal's Men, The Evil Lord's Lackey's, The Good King's Bumbling Brigade, Guard Dog, The Queen's Guard, The Secret Guard, the Nosy Guard, the Trusted Guard, Waterdeep's Finest, and the Traitorous Guard!

A great way to spice up combats! Introducing guards beyond the 1/8 CR listed in the Monster Manual makes being in my DnD cities far more interesting! Just a great item to have for being in a city! [...]

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.
