On the Initiative Modifier Table, what does Receive Charge mean?
Customer avatar
Rod B February 24, 2021 5:25 am UTC
That's the initiative modifier you receive when you have weapons like spears set to counter charging enemies.

Hi. Great book that I'm picking up again after a break. So, is 2.0.1 the most recent?

Greetings, Salutations and Felicitations to all!

As Primary Editor in Chief of "For Gold & Glory", I have read all of the reviews and comments. It fills me with great pride to hear all of the wonderful things that some of you have said about this book. I am very happy to hear that my efforts, combined with the efforts of Justen, Dan and Adam Delvay and others, resulted in a product that I can be this proud to be associated with. A few years ago, I released a series of Official Supplements for the game. They are listed here on dtRPG under my publisher's account, The HawkWolf Network. Soon after this, I ran into a financial crisis and had to stop writing and publishing new material in 2017. Currently, I am still slowly recovering from this disaster but have decided to start writing and eventually publishing the additional supplements that were still in planning stages back then. At this time, I am adding the free pdf of FG&G to The HawkWolf Network account. This is so that I can provide...See more

oops, it's "The Hawk Wolf Network". You won't find it without the space between Hawk and Wolf.

No longer in possession of my once awesome collection of AD&D books, I was looking to start replacing them. Which would have been costly, but this Print-on-Demand product is all I need. Ok maybe as a DM, not ALL I need... Not only that, after ordering it I expected to see it in a month. Not so! The book arrived in just over a week and in fine quality. I prefer the B&W for old school books, and although I'm not a fan of the choice of art, it still looks great. Now to begin creating a new campaign for 2nd Edish!

As for hardcover/softcover, I think that's pretty self explanatory.

Greetings!

Woohoo! I am so happy to be revisiting AD&D 2nd edition with your book in the future.

01) If I purchase the PDF (whether with a copy of the book or not) is it watermarked like the older WotC books? I hope not because that would suck.

02) What are the differences between the standard and premium hardcover color books?

Thank you for your time.

It most certainly is not. I would guess you have a problem with your computer--the download is just a PDF. It's not encrypted, and there isn't even any watermark with purchase information. There's nothing in it that should cause your problems.

Found a typo in the glossary (d# entry). It says “3d6 means roll three sets of six dice”...
... it reads as if I should get six dice (no number of sides specified), and roll them 3 times, for a total of 18 dice rolled.

Under THACO, it says:

“Remember that double negatives (subtracting a negative from a positive) add to the number, making it more difficult to hit.”

Should be “subtracting a negative from a positive” in the parentheses.

Good eyes, Rodrigo. I'll make those changes for future updates.

Great!

And BTW, I noticed that my correction for the double negative is not a correction at all... it should be “subtracting a negative from a negative” (sigh!).

About 5 years ago now, I had started to get into TTRPGs through 5e, and I have recently started to explore and look into the older editions and OSRs as a GM from the beginning of my RPG career in the past couple of years or so (need to always broaden the horizons of what one knows and what one can offer); and I have found a few that I've liked. This is clearly one of them, and in my personal pages of history and opinion, this is in my top 10 OSRs: rate up there with Basic Fantasy RPG, Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Swords & Wizardry, Stars Without Number, and etc. That is where I personally rank it. And as another had said, it seems to be clearly a labor of love. So I went ahead and bought the hardcover premium color version because I support it, and I also work better with a hard copy of a book in my hands to quickly leaf through the pages when necessary; while also wanting it to last through the ages for as long as possible. I do believe, however, a downloadable pdf for the character sheet should be...See more

For those wishing for a module to go along with this, be patient. A module takes time to produce to be sure that it is a good product. And not only that, if you are a GM hoping for a module to go along with this, it's time to put on the "big boy" pants, and start creating some of your own, if you haven't already. A little help from me and advice from me. Just create some tables with different kinds and sized starting areas, rooms, passages and etc for a dungeon; on tables using a d20 roll with different ranges for each on the die rolls. Make sure to have a dead end or two on the tables as well (because the dungeon ultimately can't go on forever). As for stocking a dungeon, take about 5-10 monsters that are good enough for some low level characters, and create another table that uses a d20 and a d8 at the same time (you roll both together), and the table ranges from 2 to 20 (you can use any single or combination of dice you like, and this is just an example from the 5e example that is given for building...See more

Ive had a problem with the printed version of this product. While the PDF type and pictures are clear and vivid, I purchased the Hardcover Color Book Premium Heavyweight and the quality was grainy and faded. I followed up with Drive Through and they checked into it and said there was nothing wrong with the printing. Did anyone else have this issue? Did anyone purchase the soft cover color printing and maybe the quality is better? I like the product Im just unhappy with the quality of the type and pictures- very dull, faded looking

I believe that the faded colors, as compared to the electronic version, is just how things are printed by Lightning Source. Some colors just don't translate to whatever printing system they have all that well. The files I upload for printing are, with the exception of not having the cover pages in the same document as the text, identical to the electronic version you can download here.

I am sorry that you feel that the print quality is not good, and hope you can get a refund if you decide it's a dealbreaker.

Out of curiosity, do the files uploaded for printing use CMYK or RGB color space? If it's the latter that could explain it.

Have the double rows of the Strength table been fixed in the print version? Also, what is the benefit of buying the Premium Heavyweight version over the Standard Heavyweight color versions?

This article might help:
https://support.drivethrurpg.com/hc/en-us/articles/209936943-What-is-the-difference-between-Premium-Color-and-Standard-Color-

But basically, standard heavyweight uses an inkjet printer while premium uses an actual offset press.

As of now, the strength table still has duplicate rows. I'm working on a revision of the whole document that should fix this and make a few other minor changes. Stay tuned...

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.
