Hello, I'm unsure if this was brought up before but the Warlock section in the PDF is not hyperlinked, unlike the others. Wizard and everything beneath it is fine, as is Sorcerer and everything above it. Only Warlock has this issue.

Any chance of a Foundry VTT version of this book? It'd be an insta-buy for me if I had that option!

Regarding the Accursed specifically Curse of Misfortune, How does Unfortunate Accident/Unavoidable Accident and Doubling Jinx interact? Would both targets take the damage or only one?
Also how do Unfortunate Accident, the Focused Multitasker Feat( I might be getting the name wrong, it’s the Feat that lets you concentrate on two spells at once), and the Infusion spells i.e Terror Infusion interact? When using the Unfortunate Accident feature the target creature of your Jinx failing their saving throw counts as hitting with an attack for the purposes of your Accursed features and spells. While this allows you to inflict an Infusion spell’s effects on a creature, with Focused Multitasker, to my understanding with Unfortunate Accident you can potentially inflict and concentrate on two Infusion Spells at once and keep dealing damage with your Jinx because in effect you aren’t making an attack, only hitting with one thus you don’t break concentration this way as per Focused Multitasker’s rules. Is this...See more

First off, great book! A question about the warchief barbarian tho, or rather two.

Are the battle cries supposed to be unlimited use? And if yo, isn't something like Terrifying shriek way to strong?
And secondly, is casting suggestion with the commanding presence feature really supposed to prevent you from casting command with it? I never saw a wording like this so im trying to clarify.

a question about the School of Fundamentals sublcass for wizard. Does the Augmented Fundamentals feature only allow you to expend one spell slot to augment a cantrip or can you choose to burn through up to four, one for each type of augment. I ask this because a similar mechanic within the paladin feature Holy Smite specifies that you can expend one spell slot. Augmented Fundamentals states that you can expend a spell slot. If it is the former interpretation then i am sad that cannot use Shocking Grasp to go UNLIMITED POWER because it was that image in my head that made want to make my first wizard using this subclass.

Hi, Bruce. I'm the author of School of Fundamentals.

Sorry to disappoint, but, like Divine Smite, Augmented Fundamentals only allows you to add one augmentation per cantrip you cast. So you can increase the range, the number of targets, or the damage of your Shocking Grasp by expending a spell slot when you cast it, but only one of them for that casting.

That said, please have a discussion with your DM. If they're cool with it and you don't have a problem with burning through your spell slots at twice the normal speed or even faster, then it shouldn't cause *too* many issues to expend multiple spell slots to add multiple augments to a single cantrip cast. In that scenario, I just wouldn't allow the stacking of multiple of the same augmentation.

Questions about the Accursed subclasses. I got this book before i got the independent Accursed class purchase, and i have just noticed that there are certain subclasses in there like Lycamprothy and Vampirism, and my first question is why are they not in this book? Secondly, would those subclasses work with the Accursed in this book, or are they set to be remastered as well and should i just hold off on getting them?

Hi, Liam! Author of the original Accursed class and the remastered version in UAH here!

When we were developing UAH, the final decision to include my Accursed, Benjamin's Pugilist, and new subclasses for both those and Matthew Mercer's Blood Hunter came somewhat late in the design and revision phase, but I knew that I was planning to eventually develop and release a full Accursed Remaster (similar to the one coming soon for my Sculptor Class). Given that UAH was going to print, meaning we couldn't update its PDF, I decided to do as much of the Accursed Remaster as I could with the time I had, but I also knew that I wouldn't be able to remaster all 11 of its original subclasses in that time. So, I painstakingly chose the five that I thought were the best showcase of the class's potential and range of playstyles that also needed the least complex changes: Armament, Combustion, Immortality, Misfortune, and Petrification. Animation, Created, Mummification, and Somnolence were then designed specifically...See more

In regards to Hex Bolt and Hex Storm, are those abilities supposed to interact with hexblade-centric invocations like Relentless Hex?

Hi, Laura!

I wrote the Hex Bolt and Hex Storm spells, which were originally for the Accursed before we decided to make them available to the Warlock, as well, so they weren't designed with eldritch invocations in mind. However, since both are based on the Hex spell, curse their targets, and are available to Warlock, I'd rule that they interact with invocations like Maddening Hex and Relentless Hex. In Hex Storm's case specifically, though, I'd say you have to choose only one target cursed by the spell each time you use the relevant invocation.

Reading this, i might also play a pugilist one day, and a similar question to my previous one, are the other pugilist subclasses backwards compatible?

I'm not sure what you're asking. The Pugilist class was updated along with the release of UAH and so all subclasses included here are compatible with the most recent version of the class.

Adore this book! Make and my party have been using it for a year! I did have two questions though:
The Rift Hitter Pugilist’s Eraser ability says the punch to pull or propel replaces an Attack, but the “Propelling Yourself” feature mentions “The first weapon attack you make during this movement has advantage.” If I have Extra Attack, and attack during this movement, have I used two attacks or one, as “Propelling Yourself” replaces one.

Also, the 17th level ability “Making Space” says the character may cast Arcane Gate, with Constitution as the spell casting ability. Does Arcane Gate use Spellcasting ability for anything?

For your question about "Making Space", the spellcasting ability could be relevant for some features or spells but is not relevant to casting the spell. I'll look into your other question.

I'm currently playing an Accursed and i just found out that this supplement had an update for it, Since I don't see the Lycanthrope curse here, my question is, is the lycanthropy curse can still be used with the current iteration of the accursed?

Yes! The remastered Accursed is fully backwards compatible with its yet-to-be-remastered subclasses

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.
