Alternate Class Features

Each of the 12 standard classes, plus the Witch, have six new options for features, allowing you to customize your character and explore new ways to play.

Class-Specific Equipment

Included with the alternate class features are collections of class-specific equipment. These magic items are made with the intent of allowing players to essentially double down on the types of abilities and powers available to their characters based on their class.

There's some really interesting subclasses in this that makes me want to purchase a copy of this, but the usage of AI art is incredibly disappointing. Whilst it can be a helpful tool, using it this way just looks lazy and trashy.

Just an assumption on my part, but on page 270 in the Witch class, Aerial Conduit states that it replaces the 18th level Grand Hex feature, but then states in its description that its speed increases at 6th and 14th level. My assumption is that it instead replaces the 4th level Hex feature, as that would make the speed progression make sense. Am I close?

Does this have the correct license for commercial use? I'm a pro DM and I don't want to get in trouble with using the Raphael image from the TMNT franchise.

Also, who was the artist?

There is no artist lmao
Cover is the most obvious AI art I've seen in ages. 100% undisclosed, 100% obvious.
At least two characters are straight up ripoffs of copyrighted material, TMNT and Mickey Mouse. No doubt most if not all images in here are just straight up AI Generated just looking at the wildly different art styles visible in his previews.

"100% undisclosed" makes you 100% a liar. This is on page 8: "As the author of this book, I am thrilled to share with you a world of imagination and adventure. In the spirit of full transparency, I want to acknowledge the use of AI artwork within these pages. While I aspire to feature professional art in the future, the current financial landscape has me struggling to pay my bills and I don't have any funds to commission artwork. As the success and sales of my products on the DMs Guild gains support, my goal is to reinvest in the work of talented artists who bring their unique visions to life. I thank you for your understanding and hope you find joy in the stories and creations that unfold within these pages."

TMNT does not own the copyright on humanoid turtles, the humanoid turtles presented are Tortles. The Mickey Mouse copyright from the Steamboat Willie erra (the version used in this book) entered public domain. You should really learn more about copyright laws, and actually...See more

Also, this product was listed with the AI filter. Under format, the creation method is listed under the AI-Generated section. Additionally, under the credits section of this book, on page 2: "In compliance with the WOMBO Terms of Service, this publication acknowledges and gives credit to WOMBO for the use of its artistic tools. This product is not endorsed by WOMBO or any of its affiliates. The attribution is provided in accordance with the terms outlined in WOMBO’s service agreement."

All production of imagery in this book has been done above board by DMs Guild guidelines and is in accordance with all US copyright laws.

Nowhere on the product page prior to purchasing this thing do you disclose the existence of the AI generated images. Disclosing it after we've already sent you your money hardly qualifies. And yes. You do absolutely skirt by copyright laws, I never said you were in direct violation of them. I said they're pretty much ripoffs of established entities. Which they are. That cover image hardly follows the standard design philosophy of Tortles, and much more closely resembles the TMNT style. Copyright violation? No. Obvious lack of creativity? Yes.

In the end, it still boils down to the fact that you're profiting off of what is art theft in all but legal precedent. I guarantee whatever AI generation model you used did not license all the images it was trained on, and that they were taken without consent or even the artist's prior knowledge. Those artists gotta put food on their table too.

Copyright ethics aside, listing WOMBO AI as the "artist" would certainly increase transparency.

The use of AI should really be disclosed on the product page, not in the book itself after purchase.

Also just from the image full of character art, there is some questionable use of intellectual properties from the following.
Power Rangers' Pink Ranger (Near bottom, right edge)
Marvel's Spider-Man (bottom left)
Star Wars' Storm Trooper (near bottom left)
At least three green-skinned Warcraft Orcs
Star Wars' Sith Lord (top left)
TMNT's Shredder (near center bottom)
Stephen King's Penny Wise (bottom right)
TMNT's Splinter (near top right)
Mortal Kombat's Quan Chi (near center top)
Assassins Creed assassin (bottom right of Quan Chi)
Bram Stoker's Van Helsing (near top right)

As others mentioned, the art changes style a lot, there is no consistent art style across these characters. The fingers on multiple characters are clearly the victim of AI rendering, and for the character in the wheelchair, their feet should not be touching...See more

You may want to reconsider using copyrighted characters like Ninja Turtles and Mickey Mouse in your product, especially if you are selling it for $$$. That isn't your intellectual property, and it's illegal to profit from. If a random person like me just sees the cover and knows it's another person's intellectual property, chances are you have an issue here.

TMNT does not own the copyright on humanoid turtles, the humanoid turtles presented are Tortles. The Mickey Mouse copyright from the Steamboat Willie erra (the version used in this book) entered public domain. No copyright laws have been broken by this product.

Considering your 'tortle' has a red bandana and red wrist-bands, I think you're sailing dangerously close to their content. Given that the publisher of those comics are releasing new content, this could definitely be confused with their IP and would definitely be grounds for a lawsuit if your product becomes popular. Fair warning. Also your Mickey Mouse is wearing a magician hat and yellow shoes; two features that Mickey Mouse, not Steamboat Willy, use. Again, intellectual property theft is a serious violation of law. Your defenses are misguided at best. Try to create your own content.

An issue has been detected where the Tarrasque and the Soul Reaper became smushed together. I will be working to upload an updated version ASAP.

Roll20 conversion in the works?

Gabriel G February 22, 2024 8:16 am UTC
I could potentially make a Roll20 conversion, but the subclasses would have to be individual handouts, as I have no idea how to incorporate them into the automated character sheets.

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.
