I've been slowly reading through this, and some of the other Havenshield offerings. I like what you've created and give you a bit of praise for carrying on with the free content.

Thank you, it's definitely been a learning experience as I did most all of it by myself (editing, layout etc). I'm working on a completely different game and system right now (a cyberpunk/horror game) for hopefully a spring release but I plan to continue to release more Havenshield products this year (for free) when I can.

Just a query really, is there a reason you are making all the Havenshield books free?

No real reason, the game just came from a simple dice system I had used to teach my kids how to play when they were younger. I'd expanded it a bit over the years. Basically it was just another way to play D&D so I didn't feel like I should make anything off of it (I do make a tiny bit on print sales though just so they can be priced at $4.99, $18.99 etc instead of $4.12, $18.31 or whatever actual cost is).

Honestly I didn't expect anyone to even like it, I'd just formatted it originally to make a print copy for myself and my players and kids.

Originally I'd charged a bit for the books because of the stock art I had used in them (which is still in the A4 printable books) but after I recouped the money and changed to the new Complete books (with Creative Commons 0 artwork that I edited) I just wants people to be able to grab it and use what they liked from it, or change it, or play it as-is.

Good question!

Ok good to know, it felt you had put a lot of work into the game and they are really good, just felt it was a shame if you were giving them away because no one had purchased them.
Its great that you are happy for them to be picked up for free though and well done, and I hope in the future you plan on doing more :)

Absolutely going to do more. I'd like to do some more adventures this year that will have some optional rules/ new monsters/ new Descriptor Classes/ new equipment and magic items included in them.

Original electronic
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.
