bronze200x200-2005.gifNominated for a 2005 ENnie Award for "Best Electronic Product"

Tired of multi-classing, just to get one ability from a certain class? Perhaps you wanted to be a Rogue with a few spells, but the "Singing? Bard was not appealing. Maybe you wanted to be a nature warrior, but did not desire all the spells from the Ranger class? Have you ever wanted a mage who could rage?

Have you ever thought it was silly to adventure for weeks and weeks without ever showing improvement, but then you hit a ?magic? number of xp and ?BAM?: all of your abilities increase? Has your character ever traveled into a new land and you asked the GM if you could try and learn the local language? But the GM had to respond "Sorry, you can?t learn anything new until you get 4,500 more experience points?.

Now, you no longer have to purchase libraries full of supplements, just to find a pseudo-class that suits your needs. Now you can gain skills, abilities, spells, as you go!

Instead of waiting to gain enough XP to "level up" your character, now you can spend them "as you go" to pick up abilities one at a time instead of en masse, allowing flexibility, customization, and noticeable improvement after every gaming session!

Get ready to change the way you think of character advancement. Get ready to have unprecedented freedom of choice! Get ready for: ?Buy the Numbers!?

This is what was missing from Pathfinder. I always hated the 'normal' level up system in D&D and Pathfinder. I prefer xp based leveling and more character customization and this book provides for exactly that. Sure, it's math heavy and a bit dry, [...]

Very well done! This has become a part of my toolbox for my incessant rules tinkering. Works very good as a wholesale plug-in for your game, or as an excellent resource for the value of D&D's "parts". [...]

A good idea poorly implemented. Whoever wrote this gave real thought to a point-buy class system. There are many good ideas in there. However, his math is faulty. By even mid-levels, the difference in point values between two classes of the same level [...]

I liked this one so much I bought it again when the print version became available! I don't think I will run another D20 campaign without allowing players to use this book to advance their characters.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: It [...]

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.
