Could use some rebalancing, some races are just too strong, for example warrior formians having an abilitiy that does 1d6+1d4 plus a chance to paralyze all at level one is a bit much. And as written the abiel can fly in medium and heavy armor since it says 30ft of unrestricted flight and only when it mentions light armor to no armor your fly speed just increases 10 feet. So great in concept as always but I would really like a rebalanced version on these features.

Love the book.

There is an error with the Lamia Elf subrace.

It states that get an additional language, which is draconic but then a few lines down they get another additional languages feature and it refers to them as a Yuan-ti abomination.

Do you have plans to possibly do a print on demand book? perhaps a combination of part 2 and this on its release if you want to add more value.

I have a question regarding the "Path of the Titanoboa" subclass: is it deliberate that "Strangle" and "Enemy weapons" do not/cannot deal magic damage? This might only be me but there are a ton of monsters that are immune to nonmagical attacks/damage.

Hey hi hello- Not sure if you realize this, but several of the spells on the Expanded Spell List for The Great Cold are actually already Warlock spells, meaning you've only really given them a *slightly* expanded spell list. The spells are: Hold Person, Hallucinatory Terrain, and Hold Monster.

This is actually something I noticed when you first published The Great Cold patron as a standalone supplement, and I was really hoping to see it fixed when I saw that you'd republished it here. Do you have any plans to modify things like this?

Finally! More playable BUG races other than Mage Hand Press' Skithari race! Also... the backstory behind the Summerbreeze the Siren made me sad, she is a wonderful girl and I will die for her! AHHH~!

so if i am reading these right, if you pick the Forman race and worker subclass and the path of the titan boa, you can have the same lifting strength as a gargantuan creature.
Because the work subrace gives.
Incredible Build. You count as two sizes larger when
determining your carrying capacity and the weight you can
push, drag or lift.
And path of the titan boa gives
Super Strength
Also at 3rd level, you count as a Large size creature when
determining your carrying capacity and the weight you can
push, drag, or lift.
So at 20 strength you could lift 4800 pounds or just over 1 ton
Push, Drag, or Lift. You can push, drag, or lift a weight in pounds up to twice your carrying capacity (or 30 times your Strength score). While pushing or dragging weight in excess of your carrying capacity, your speed drops to 5 feet.

Size and Strength. Larger creatures can bear more weight, whereas Tiny creatures can carry less. For each size category...See more

I love these book it has lots of cool playable races and can't wait for more but i do feel the layout could be better
First off i find it hard to read when the text goes across the full page especially on my phone.
secondly some of the pictures are above the information about another race and can be confusing.

There a few things that I found are weirdly worded or inconsistent.
- for Abeil Servant and Formian Worker's nectar trait, it says "a meal's worth of nourishment for 24 hours." does this mean it acts like how a goodberry nourishes, or does it mean that its only good for 24hours?
- the Chitine's XXX doesn't make it clear how often a creature can remake its saving throw. is it just one more attempt on the next turn or is it at the start of each of its turns that it can try to end it early for the whole minute? There is a similar wording issue on the Medusa's Venomous, the Mycanoid's Spore Cloud, . similarly, the Medusa's petrifying gaze does not mention if a second failed save is what finishes petrification and turns the creature to stone, so a clarification would be nice.
- Galeb Duhr's natural armor says "starting" AC instead of natural AC. this wording doesn't really make sense and need to clarify that this is your AC when not wearing armor. This is a similar issue with...See more

An update will be made to address most of this issues as much as possible, but most importantly the Spectral Owl Feature.

Heard this has a lot of errors.
Good to see you decided to make a compendium collection of your's and others works.

150 races total between 3 books? That's a massive amount.

Will you be releasing a fixed version. Because I’m confused about “Abeil flight speed.” Is it missing a comma?
Note: is the first sentence of most flighting character supposed to be restricted flight movement?

So was I and a few other people. Zito answered someone else about it and basically what that entire line means "As long as you are wearing Light Armor or No Armor, your unrestricted Flight Speed is 40ft. However, if you are wearing Medium or Heavy Armor, your unrestricted Flight Speed is 30ft."

So I was looking at the Pixie race and I'm looking at the one innate ability for it where it says "choose a cantrip from the Druid, Ranger, or Sorcerer's spell list..." Is this just a accidental error because of rangers not having cantrips?

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.
