Venture 4th: Characters By Level

Watermarked PDF

Adamant Entertainment presents another 4e design kit, streamlining the process of creating PCs and NPCs at any level!

This design kit is not a replacement for the character creation rules in 4th edition. It doesn’t tell you how to set ability scores, for instance, or explain race and class features. What it does do, however, is assemble templates of the statistics that change with rising character level and does most of the math for you!

For example: Need a 7th Level NPC? Use the following template:

Level 7
Ability Scores: Distribute 2 bonus points after assigning starting scores.
Passive Perception and Insight: 13 + your character’s Wisdom modifier
Initiative: +3 + your character’s Dexterity modifier
Armor Class: +3 + bonuses from armor and shield, + your character’s Dexterity or Intelligence modifier if they’re wearing light or no armor
Fortitude Defense: 13 + your character’s Strength or Constitution modifier
Reflex Defense: 13 + your character’s Dexterity or Intelligence modifier
Will Defense: 13 + your character’s Wisdom or Charisma modifier
Basic Melee Attack: +3 + your character’s Strength modifier
Basic Ranged Attack: +3 + your character’s Dexterity modifier
Trained Skills: +8 + the modifier for that skill’s ability
Untrained Skills: +3 + the modifier for that skill’s ability
Feats: 4
At-Will Powers: 2
Per-Encounter Powers: 3
Daily Powers: 2
Utility Powers: 2

Instead of creating a 1st-level character and then adding the level upgrades until you reach the desired level, you can simply grab a template and follow the guidelines to create a character at the level you need -- making the process much faster for GMs and players alike.

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.
