The Genius Guide to the Talented Cleric

Watermarked PDF

Know That I am a Servant of the Gods!

Clerics are an iconic part of fantasy roleplaying games and, as agents of the divine, serve an important role in telling interesting stories and creating interesting worlds. Unfortunately, despite the many and varied different gods in most campaigns, clerics end up being disappointingly similar. Each selects two domains, but otherwise has access to the same spells, weapons, armor, and abilities as every other cleric. For characters devoted to divine beings that are spectacularly diverse, clerics have very little flexibility. But now with The Genius Guide to the Talented Cleric, it’s possible to build any kind of cleric. Warrior priests and crusaders can focus on divine domains and blessings, choosing to forgo the power to channel energy, or even reducing their dependence on spells. Clerics of gods focusing on animals can gain trusted mounts or improved familiars. Clerics of gods of knowledge can focus on secret lore and esoteric studies. Maintaining the core concept of a supernaturally-empowered agent of the gods, the Talented Cleric can now be as customized and unique as the god she worships.

Is there going to be "lite" version of this book? While I appreciate artistic backgrounds I found that reading the text near the margins difficult, especially at the top and bottom. Personally, I just make backgrounds on a separate layer that can be turned off for ease of reading and printing.

There's no plan for a lite version at the moment, but we'll certainly keep track of feedback requesting such a thing!

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.
