Will it (and Svilland) become Print on Demand after you finish your internet print runs?

Love the book but have only one gripe.Why the hell are all the plot hooks for do gooders?It's a book about evil.Why isn't there any plot hook to play as the bad guys?My favorite adventure path of all time is way of the whicked.My god,just using the options in this book made me want to rerun it.No scenario or plot hook to play the bad guys is something that is lacking and a bad choice for me.Again it's just my opinion,I still enjoyed the book.But seriously aren't we fed up of playing the good heroes?I would give anything for a campaign or another adventure path with the same caliber of way of the whicked.

Hello eric,

Can you specify which plot hooks are you referring to? The book is built around many evil archetypes, feats, and other options for evil player characters. The NPCs have plot hooks that generally present them as the antagonist because they are mostly for the use of the Game Masters for having more options of evil-doers in their campaigns and adventures.

Additionally, as part of this book's Kickstarter campaign, we are also releasing Mindabar- The City of Malice soon. It is a relatively shorter book that is completely about a gargantuan evil city for all the freedom and opportunities a lack of morals bring. It contains many plot hooks and other scenario options for evil players.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
