Level Up Your Background



For some characters, their background represents their lives when they aren’t in the dungeon or out saving the world. It includes aspects of ambitions, their place in society, and their recognized authority. Such advancements are optional even in a campaign that uses these rules, for with authority comes responsibility. Other characters grow and change to the point that a different background represents who they are, but their original one is still important for the story of who they were.

This product introduces Advanced Backgrounds, which complement your existing Background with new features.

This is a great supplement if you want a little more mechanical sweetness for those big story achievments. This book pairs very well with campaigns that see players building strongholds and attracting followers, but it doesn't require that kind of [...]

One aspect of D&D 5e that I feel can be improved is mechanical PC differentiation after 3rd level. Spellcasters can select new spells, but by 4th level many subclasses effectively know what the next 17 levels are going to look like unless they mult [...]

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.
