Justin Stewart, Dragons Gonna Drag

"I have not seen this level of published setting creativity since 2e...Much better than the staid stuff WOTC is making.solomani

Is it me or are the new classes completely OP compared to regular OSE classes? I know balance was never a big thing when it comes to this system but it feels these guys are in a different league. Assuming the new classes are meant to be run alongside classic OSE classes that is.
Other than that the world is really intriguing in just how insane it is. I do wonder of the guys who wrote it have ever received therapy.... and if their therapists need therapy afterwards.

Is the world a meatworld/fleshscape? The words in the book that are used to describe the world are not clear. I want to make sure my players get the designers intended version of this and not my interpretation.

This world is not made of meat, no.

Then why is everything named after flesh and bodily fluids? What's the point? You should have just let it be made out of meat, that would have made it a more interesting setting. Oh well, I sold this book on ebay a year combined with Zak Has Nothing To Do With This Book for a couple bucks.

It's totally okay to imagine all mentions of meat as secretly referring to seitan or soy curls.

Good eye. They are supposed to level up as thieves/specialist but it got cut in editing and we didn't notice. We'll update the pdf but if you're playing a Kaldane just use the Specialist xp progression.

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.
