There is a new update. I apologize for the long process, but I wanted to make sure the design was balanced and that it indeed fitted the sorcerer rather than the warlock. Aside from a few minor changes, the update now includes the flintlock magus, a new sorcerous origin.

I must say I very much like the idea you have present here in the "Enhance This Product" section. Unfortunately this is not a product I'm interested in but well done, and I will be taking a look to see what other products you offer.

Thanks - I hope it continues to grow. While this might not interest you, check out more of these types of products from me at the DM's Guild under Joshua Raynack.

UPDATE: I am hard at work with the new material for the Marksman. Here is a tidbit of what I am working on:

Flintlock Mage: While few understand the mechanical mysteries of the dwarven flintlock, it appears that several unlocked its secrets. In truth, a handful of magi discovered their innate connection with Arcanum, a powerful alchemical stone, and channel their sorcerous powers through the dwarven artifacts. Though it appears as a form of speckled quartz resembling chalcedony, Arcanum stones are in fact small fragments of a petrified dragon's heart.
The dwarven forged barrel of the firearm inadvertently allows flintlock magi to exploit their bond with the Arcanum and ignite this wellspring of magic. While the mechanical aspects of the firearm remain a mystery, flintlock magi use the weapons to propel not lead-forged bullets, but raw arcane power.

This format would be more useful if there was a way for a prospective buyer to see the sales total.

Thanks for taking the time to offer a great suggestion. I will update the page showing percentages toward reaching the goals, beginning when the goals reach the first 10%, then afterward with increments of 5%. It is close to 10% of the first goal, though not quite there.

Did you not make it to 10%?

Yep, we sure did, and now we are closing on the 80% mark for the first stretch goal - thanks to all the participants. I am firing up the engines and preparing new material.

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.
