Salt in Wounds Player's Guide: 5th Edition

Adventure in the dark fantasy city fed by the eternal butchery of the legendary Tarrasque! This Player’s Guide is the essential resource for the Salt in Wounds setting and beyond. The book includes dozens of options and information to inspire hundreds of unique, never before seen characters including:

-5 new Racial Options like Alchemical Ghoul, carrion eating Agogi, and more.
-7 new Backgrounds from God-Butcher to Meridian House Scion
-12 New Class Options like blood obsessed Hemiotropic Wizard, damaged and furious Scarred Beast Totem Barbarians, to armor bonded Oath of Binding Paladin.
-Basic Information about factions, new religions, and life in Salt in Wounds
Whether your a player looking for captivating new options or a GM looking for inspiration this book is for you because playing in the Salt in Wounds setting means everyone around the table is about to have a bloody good time. 

Salt in Wounds is the most imaginative role-playing game setting it’s been my privilege to play in a long time. Equal parts grotesque and delightful, what J.M. Perkins has created here is masterfully realized and intriguingly believable. I highly recommend a visit to the city of Salt in Wounds -if you have a strong stomach, a love of fantastic world building, and a taste for the bizarre. In a plethora of game settings, this one stands out.

-Lou Anders, Author of the Thrones and Bones Trilogy

i was supposed to get this (as part of my kickstarter) and I have a link in my inbox (in drivethrough) that says it will add it to my cart for 0$, but the link doesn't work. It takes me to a page that says "rpgnow is now drivethroughrpg" and a message says it was added to my cart but in fact it isn't.

I received the same message. It puts me in a loop of "get this for free", going to RPGNow (which is shutting down) then popping me back to DriveThru with a message that I redeemed my free copy, but nothing is in my cart!

I'm aware of problems. Patience is a virtue. But please be aware that we backers and customers would rather have a "please be patient, we will fix this" notice, rather than pay for it then jump thru hops to get our money back.

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.
