Through Their Own Eyes (5E)

Watermarked PDF


The races of fantasy are more than funny-shaped humans. See them in a whole new light with this collection of personality features, customized to each race, which you can use in place of or in addition to the personality features from your background. For GMs, when you’re creating a new culture of each race, just select a few items from each collection as the culture’s dominant outlook to put a new spin on an old classic. Here you’ll find personality features for Elves (including Drow), Dwarves, Gnomes, Halflings, Half-orcs, Dragonborn, Tieflings, Aasimar, Goblins, and Kobolds.

How to Use this Collection

When you select a background for your character, you would normally choose or randomly determine two personality traits, one ideal, one bond, and one flaw.

After consulting with your DM, either pick 2-3 additional personality features from your race’s entry or replace 2-3 of your background’s features with features from this collection.

These materials were designed for use with 5th edition rules and can be played directly in your 5th edition campaign.

Do you have trouble fleshing out a new character you made? Then this nice little role-playing aid is for you! On a side note, I particularly liked the part on page 2 about not using your character as an excuse to be mean to anyone else at the t [...]

Great utility item. I would love to see more product like this. Its a great price and plays in the design space that the "big books" put out by the larger publishing houses aren't likely to flesh out. [...]

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.
