The Academic, An Intelligent Class

Suggested Price $1.00

Knowledge is power. It is a well-known maxim. In reality, this statement is hard to prove. In a world of boundless magic, superhuman physical might and powers granted by higher beings, knowledge may not give you the edge you are looking for.

The Academic Class puts Intellgent front and centre. Characters that follow this path use their insight and acumen in and out of combat. The smartest people in the room and on the battlefield. Abilities of the Academic include:

Prudent Positioning. It's about knowing where to stand. Your AC is based on Dexterity and Intelligence.

Strategist. Tally ho! You grant buffs to your allies on the fly.

Sly Defense. The best offence. Your Dodge gains a special feature.

There are no subclasses for the Academic, in the traditional sense. Instead you can choose from a selection of paths of study at 2nd level. There are 8 'Scholastic Paths', including Antiquarian, Negotiator and Tactician. From 3rd level, you begin to specialise in chosen creature types. Your ability to combat and interact with these types greatly improves.

The Academic is a new and unique class, that includes abilities untried and untested by the existing, official classes available. It has been played tested, but it is still an unwieldy new creature that will benefit from you as DM or player. I invite your constructive feedback!

Have a Great Adventure!

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.
