I noticed that there are two print versions, a plain and a standard version. What is the difference?

The two versions are a black-and-white printing and a color printing (the one that says "Standard"). They use the same weight of paper, and differ only by the color artwork (or lack thereof in the black-and-white artwork). Theoretically, DriveThruRPG and the other sites have a premium color option available which has heavier weight paper, but I didn't make a version for that option.

Hello, I received a notice that this was updated, but both versions in my library for download list the version as: 2ND EDITION(v2.0: 8 September 2015). I do notice differences between the PDF's, though.

Sorry if this is a dumb question. Can you let me know if the fgg.pdf or the For_Gold__Glory.pdf is the latest version? Thanks.

Thanks for the question, Todd C and Timothy B. The fgg.pdf is the most recent version. The differences are very minor: I replaced two pieces of artwork with sharper versions (Portrait of an African Man, page 15 and Dark Thoughts, page 345) to make them look better, and fixed a typo or two. Next time around, I'll remember to update the date in the credits as well. Sorry about the confusion!

I really love this book...any plans to follow up with supplements on your end or via another 3PP?

Thanks for the kind words! I do plan on making a campaign setting that uses For Gold & Glory's rules. It'll have some campaign-specific rules, such as kits, races, and spells. It won't be a rules supplement, per se, but it'll definitely have some new rules that should be able to be generalized to other settings.

I was just wondering if you where still planning on doing a "campaign-specific rules, such as kits, races, and spells" release sometime?

Also I purchased a printed "For Gold & Glory" back in 2015, I was wondering is there any change in the rules/game play etc. with the revisions. Reason I ask is I have no way to download or review the pdf's. Thanks!

This is a great product. Its almost 100% exactly what I was looking for. If you ever loved the older versions of D&D before the WotC days, then this product is for you.

This is a very nice product.
Is there any plan to release a print version of this?

Indeed there is! I've submitted the files to make the print version, and assuming they're acceptable, there'll be a print version up in a few days!

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.
