People who report the page upside down clearly arent even reading. It says it is meant to be folded so you can quickly flip the rules. There is not a lot here, like 4 pages, but I like what there is. It is basically a mod for people that already have an know the rules of either 5e or OSR. If you werent already full versed, you'd be lost. I doubt many beginners are here looking for Deathbringer though. It feels more like something you'd use for a quick spontaneous 4 hour game at a game Con or something.

It sure would be nice if the second page weren't flipped upside down in the PDF...

I took screenshots of each page, flipped the upside down parts around, and reorganized things to put them in the correct order. It's a little annoying, but it's doable.

Thoroughly enjoyed Deathbringer! I wish it was a fleshed out into a full OSR with illustrations and a dark gritty campaign. I absolutely would pay more too.
I admire the quality of content here packed into this tri-fold-out so simple and fun and the mechanics are great!

Can you please include a version for tablets, with normal page position. I've switched to pdfs only, a couple of years ago.

Any plans on updating this to address the errata? Also, any plans to make Deathbringer Deluxe available on DTRPG?

Love these rules. I was wondering, Professor, if you were going to do an update to the Deathbringer rules using the Hit system you detailed in Replace Hit Points! (Ep. 253)?

It's a one page rpg. Fits on both sides of a standard sheet of paper.

It's supposed to for printers that use that flip format to print on both sides of a page. Click 1.4 and it is all oriented upwards.

I am a big fan of Prof DM and this product is a perfect example of simple, streamlined design.

I hope the designer reads these comments and makes a few revisions. Here is a list of ideas. The first is at least one typo that I found, and the rest is a summary of what I've gleaned from others.

1) Typo: Under "Corruption" should read "Gain +1 when you commit an evil deed..." NOT "Gain +1 when you commit and evil deed..."
2) Shield: Shield should be added to the Armor list with Defense Bonus and price (See comment below Daniel L on July 21)
3) Healing: Should be revised to "Heal HP = 1 + CON every day of complete bed rest" OR "(Minimum +1 per day)" INSTEAD of "Heal HP = CON every day..." (See comment below Kyle W on July 22)
4) CON explanation: On the full-size character sheet CON explanation lists "Hit Points", which may confuse by implying that CON bonus applies to Hit Points. A better description...See more

So I asked about shields and healing on the YouTube comments of Proffesser Dungeon Craft. He replied. Shields are +2 Defense (it is not on the equipment list). Healing is actually CON +1 per day instead of just CON per day. That is to prevent characters who put all their stat points in other stats than Constitution (aka CON=0) can still heal naturally by bed rest at a rate of 1 per day. If your character has a Constitution of +3, then they heal 4 hit points per day of bed rest.

Thank you for your efforts to find the answer. I didn't even see the problem with natural healing.

Deathbringer class has a shield, but I can't find what a shield does under the equipment list. Is it +1 DEF?

I asked in the YouTube comments about shields and healing. Shields are +2 Defense, added to your armor. He forgot to put that on the page.

In case you are wondering, healing is actually CON +1 per day, not just your straight CON ability. That is so character with a CON of 0 can still heal up thru bed rest. It says just CON twice in the rules, under healing, and under the Stat Abilities descriptions.

Two questions...is their any limit to the points you can put in bonus for ability? Can STR get a +8 for example?

Is there any limit to the points you can put in bonus for ability? Can STR get a +8 for example? In 5e you are limited to a +5 on an ability but I can imagine in this system that limit does not exist so someone could get a really high AC if they dump points into DEX, to get an AC above the max 19 which would the max if your are only able to have a max bonus of 5. I am thinking of dusting off some old classic modules and run my players through it with these rules. Should be fun.

It's on the Basics section: maximum +6 at first level (the equivalent of ability 18 plus proficiency). Can be increased to +10 total as you advance.

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.
