Was looking at a friend's softcover copy, and I don't know if this ever got fixed or not, but regarding the Alternate Ability Score Bonuses for a paladin, shouldn't that be +1 Str and +1 Cha, not Wis? I could even see +1 Cha (or Wis) like the rogue's +1 Cha (or Int). I'd like to think there's an errata, but there might not be. I don't see anyone else having brought it up.

Can you add a Fantasy Grounds and PDF Combo?
I am very interested but can't bring myself to spend $30. (

There are some editing issues with the NPC classes as the weapon and armor proficiencies for the expert and spell caster classes needs to be correct. ( as of this posting)
Maybe an update could go up.

I received the softcover book as a gift. Would it be possible to get the pdf at a discount price?

No TOC or index? I'm really interested in this product, but those are deal breakers for me. Any chance those could be updated and added to the PDF? That would make this an instant buy.

The Class Defense Bonus chart does not include monks, what group should they be a part of?

I was just looking at that as well. The entire section needs a bit of clarification in my opinion. How exactly do you calculate Unarmed Defense and masterwork type of armor, for example, that increases AC? Do Barbarians get a damage reduction of Dex+ Con instead of a bonus to AC? A combat example would be nice.

Also, how do you differentiate between the different tiers in each type of armor? Why wear half plate and get disadvantage on stealth when you get the same damage reduction as hide both being medium armor. Is there some kind of modifier for DR that gets added to the dice roll depending on the specific armory you are wearing?

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.
