New Core Classes
Pierce the veil of the future with the hedge mage and hermit; draw your sword and make your stand against the heathen with the knight; bond with the land and lead your people to victory with the noble; serve the One God and wield power both temporal and divine with the priest; live for no honor greater than a full belt pouch with the robber baron; or master the ways of archery with the yeoman.

New Prestige Classes
Enforce the will of the One God with steel as a Crusader; combine magic and beauty as an Enchantress; protect Britain as a Lady of the Lake; seek the Grail as a Quest Knight; or follow one of five different paths as a Spectral Knight, choosing to be a Black, Blue, Green, Red or White knight.

Be judged by your deeds with an innovative nobility system that replaces alignment; some characters will care little for their personal honor, such as the robber baron, while others can gain power from being pure of heart, such as the priest and the quest knight.

Fate and Destiny
Choose a fate for your character, allowing him to perform truly epic deeds on your chosen path to glory; but beware, your destiny, a secret fate your character does not know, looms close as well.

A New Magic System
A unique spell point system replaces slots, allowing you to use the spells you know and love from the PHB in new ways, with sources of power that allow a character's spell energy to recover more quickly on his favored ground. Depending on the type of magic you follow, your source of power could be ley lines, mysterious stone circles, cathedrals of worship, fog-shrouded lakes, or the holy land itself.

Player's Guide to Arthurian Legend
Also included is an 8-page player's guide to Arthurian Legend, providing players with a basic overview of Arthurian history and major characters.

Well I'm pretty bad at reviews, so I will keep this light. I bought the pdf when it was available, and then later bought the hardcover. This is the 1st LOE product, and has lots of rather crunchy rules that really stand out. The first chunk of t [...]

A good go at taking DnD fantasy back to its more traditional roots. The design of the product is excellent, the classes well-executed and the points based magic system interesting, if not perfect. [...]

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.
