Aaralyn's Stolen Notes to Velea (5e DnD)

Suggested Price $14.99

Davi pulled at the strap of her backpack, cursing softly at its increasingly heavy weight. She really should have listened when her professor had told her to leave the books behind, but how could she? The Tale of the Thorn and the Rose was her favorite love story ever, and it wasn't like she could leave A Girl and A Gentle Giant behind either - it was a classic!

Still, she should really have packed lighter. 

Her trek was easy, as long as she stayed near the road. That way, she would reach Amberton quickly and safely. Besides, she was not one for going off the beaten path... except when interesting things caught her attention. As they did now. 

A thin line of smoke was snaking lazily upwards from behind a hill a little ways off the road. A campsite? This late in the day? Curious, and forgetting the likelihood that this was a trap, Davi turned away from the road and approached the source of the smoke. 

What was the worst that could happen?

What is this book?

You have the unique pleasure of holding in your hands the stolen notes of Aaralyn Quinn, a famous thief and infiltrator known throughout the world of Noroth, and especially on the continent of Velea. She is infamous for hunting the secrets of the world elite, as well as hiding and protecting information thought lost to the ages. And now you've found her notebook, unscathed and clutched in the hands of smoldering corpse.

The document offers an entirely new world to explore, based on 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons. You'll explore the vastness of the magical continent of Velea in Noroth, a world that has been split apart by the gods eons ago. Velea is a place filled with unexplored nooks of wilderness and dangerous beasts, as well as bright, chaotic magic and scheming politics. There is something for every kind of adventurer, even for those who just wants to bash heads and roll dice. 

In addition to a new continent to wander and new lore to read, there is plenty more of interest to those making or playing in a 5th edition D&D setting. Inside, you will find:

  • 2 new subraces (wyld elf and marsh dwarf)
  • 5 new races
  • 23 new subclasses
  • 3 new warlock invocations
  • 7 new backgrounds
  • New adventuring gear
  • New toolsets
  • New weapons
  • 10 new feats
  • A guide to making magic items
  • New planes of existence
  • 22 new magic items
  • Art and maps
  • … and much more

The suggested price on the document is just that: suggested. I do not want people to spend money they don't have to enjoy this content. If you enjoy this product and would be willing to spend any kind of money on it, I would be honored and grateful for it. I hope you enjoy the compendium and I cannot thank you enough for taking the time out of your day to look at it.

Would it be possible to get a version of the map without the hexes on it?

It would. I'll see about adding it within the next few days

A hex-less version of the map has been added now. Sorry it took a few days to get it done, but it's uploaded now :)

Just bought this and I'm confused. It's obviously a well put together book and is beautiful to look at and read. So my question is why didn't you put bookmarks in the pdf???

Honestly... because I am a ditz and I forgot. I'll see about adding bookmarks for the updated version.

Hope you are enjoying it otherwise! Despite the lack of bookmarks :)

Liking this so far, and I'll try and come back with a more substantial comment later, but you should probably know that gypsy is a slur for the Romani people -- it's a common mistake, but you'd be making a small difference if you found an alternate name for that Zirani subrace. (there's probably a discussion to be had about the language of having a "non-human race" to represent a Romani-analog, and how that's a failing of the game as a whole, but I'm not qualified for it.) I think you did better than WotC in a lot of ways, but it's still worth examining what it means to describe a culture mostly in terms of how they steal from (and maybe kidnap) "normal" people.

I can totally see where you're coming from. When I started making this compendium, the Zirani were simply an analogy for Romani and caravan culture. I have ties to that culture myself (English is not my native language, so the word "gypsy" doesn't carry any inherent negative connotations for me), which is why I didn't think anything of it, but I can see why it would be upsetting to some people. I won't remove the Zirani from the document, but I will look over the subrace when I update the PDF at a later date.

Thank you so much for comment, and I am happy that you otherwise liked the document!

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.
