  2. I noticed you used Century Gothic rather than Soutane. Was there a reason? This isn’t a criticism. I like Century Gothic too. πŸ™‚

  3. Found another one. Page 69 under traps references “chapter 5 the encounter” for ability checks. Ability check are on page 69.

    1. Great question. The only thing I can say with certainty is that Lulu isn’t the place to print this. I tried and got my account closed… even though I was only printing this for myself.
      If anyone knows of a printer who’d print this, I’d love to know.

  4. Couple other typos … Chapter One … just noticed on initial read through.

    1. Definitions of Standard D&D Terms: 1st paragraph (line 7) “non-player characters” should be bolded. It can then be rendered normally in paragraph 7.

    2. How to Create a Player Character: List items 4 and 5 should really be reversed.

    3. Character Class Overview (Dwarves) … under Dwarf Class Description. Second sentence – remove “Hill” should just be “Dwarves”.

    Awesome work, btw … love the vibe the layout gives.
    Like reading the old AD&D books.
    Kudos!

    1. Thank you for looking this over (and for the corrections). I’ll make these edits today and re-upload the PDF.

      1. Cool. Thanks for putting in the work on this … have a few comments regarding the actual “rule choices” you made that I was planning on posting today and tomorrow if you don’t mind taking a look and replying at your convenience. πŸ™‚

      2. A couple of others I noted … all in Chapter One

        How to Use This Book
        Second Paragraph — unbold APPENDIX B
        Fifth Paragraph — replace “is filled with” with “presents
        Sixth Paragraph — unbold “ability checks”

        Definitions of Standard D&D Terms
        Lose the “D&D” in the above title and list as “Definitions of Standard Terms” in the ToC
        Sixth Paragraph — unbold “party” as you already bolded it in Paragraph 1

        Use of the Word Level
        Experience
        Replace last sentence with “All player characters begin the game at the first level of experience and gain levels of experience through the accumulation of experience points which are acquired through adventures.”.

  5. Hey Chris > still looking through this and noticed a typo on page 22 in the Example of Creating A Player Character section. In 10] it should read “120 gp is recorded…” not 110. I’m sure there’s a few others, but it looks really good.
