    Is this basically all the "ADVANCED RACES" booklets combined into one large book?

    Sort of? It does include all the Advanced Races booklets, but it also includes additional information (for the Gearforged, Lizardfolk, Darakhul in particular). There are also 10 new races that were not covered by the booklets (the Dhampir, Drow, Jinnborn, Minotaurs, Sahuagin, Trollkin, and 4 more small ones, the Ratfolk, Suli, Weresharks, and Kitsune).

    In addition, the material has gotten some additional rules development throughout and quite a bit of new art.

    So.... Yes, it includes the races from the series, but it also includes a lot of brand-new and updated material.

    Will there be a pathfinder version of the extra races in Unlikely Heroes?

    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.
