Whether taking down enemies with the Decapitation maneuver, making a Called Shot, or feeling an Adrenaline Rush, or fighting hordes with your Rapid Strike, these feats, features, and options add a level of powerful advantage for your Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

Sales have reached another mile stone. I had crazy dream to sell 100 copies on drivethrurpg and 100 on Amazon. A super crazy dream would be to sell 200 on drivethru and 200 Amazon. We have reached the super crazy goal 201 on drivethru and 352 on Amazon. All I have to say is thank you!

In looking a little further in Xanathar's I think the Defensive Master and the Caviler Option works fine. At high levels with Defensive Master you could add 6 to your AC for 3 attacks. If you combined this with the d8 roll it would top out at 14. Since this is what the character does I am fine with it. You could split the two. Use Defensive Master for your AC and the d8 could be given party member. If you combine this with the optional to hit rules in the more 5e feats and other options this makes defense even more interesting.

I reviewed the table contents for Xanathars guide to everything. I am looking forward to the subclasses, origin stuff, racial feats, and magic items. Traps maybe interesting too. I am not too supersized that there were not more combat options. It tends to be polarizing topic. There not that many options in the Unearthed articles. A wound vitality type system and that is about it.

I am surprised the mass battle system did not make it in. Maybe in next book. I think psionic is still to come.

I think if more combat options is what you want look to drivethru or dungeon masters guild for 3rd part books like this one.

On that note. Thanks to all those who have purchased this title. Combined with amazon sales over 400 copies sold. That is truly humbling. Thank you.

Since the table of contents have been uploaded for Xanathars Guide to Everything. It seems that there are no skill feats the skill feats can be used as is. Also the feats and combat rules are not impacted by Xanathars. The crafting rules do not seem as detailed in Xanathars so use which ones you like. To craft Magic Items use the Blacksmith Skill and Master Blacksmith Feat.

So with the new book coming out fro Wizards of the coast for D&D 5th with Xanathar's Guide to Everything. I thought how would 5e Feats and other options work with it. In looking at the Unearthed Arcana articles

I would say pretty well. In the case of the Skill feats they are similar but still work together. With the skill mastery feats from 5e feats and other options it grants advantage with the skill roll. With the skill feats from Xanathar's it grants double the proficiency bonus if you have the skill. So in the case of Acrobatics you could take Acrobat from the Skill feats from Wizards Coast and it would grant double the proficiency bonus with Acrobat skill checks. You could also take Tumbler from 5e Feats and Other Options which grants advantage on Acrobat checks. So for two feats you could have double the proficiency bonus and advantage on skill check roll. Remember this would require 2 feats to do this. So if character spent 2 feats to do this they should be very very skilled at Acrobatics....See more

This is little above my head but the error may be related to this.

After the concurrency model for a thread is set, it cannot be changed. A call to CoInitialize on an apartment that was previously initialized as multithreaded will fail and return RPC_E_CHANGED_MODE.

My be related to multiple downloads and more than one download colonized.
If you are still having problems talk with technical support.

FAILED - Failed to create COM object `WScript.Shell': CoInitialize has not been called.
What does this mean and how do I fix this? The other items I purchased are downloading just fine.

First wanted to wish everyone one Happy Holiday season. 2nd thank you again to all those who have bought the product in PDF and Print format. 3rd I know everyone likes a sale, but I think that 2.00 dollars is a rock-bottom price for all you get. I did run one sale due to my own mistaking the item private. It took awhile to get it public again. So I do not plan on any future sales. Finally talked about staff reviews it has been almost 2 months since several staff reviewers obtained PDF so may send email end month if still no reviews. Thank you again your purchase.

I was looking at the called shots rule and critical feats. The two can work together. You have to look at where the called shot is and what the critical feat is. For example if a called shot to the head is successful and you have the critical feat that disables the arm; the two do not match and the called shot to the head is done with the critical hit and t2 to the save difficulty for the critical hit. However, if you had the critical feat that disabled the jaw this would work with the called shot to the head. Roll the saves for both and apply the effects if the appropriate i.e. Save or saves failed.
Also remember the rules of advantage and disadvantage. Advantage and disadvantage cancell each other out, but there may be an instance where there is disadvantage applied then applied again depending on the effects. This is important if the effected target had advantage because it would cancel the disadvantage out, but not the second disadvantage. So it can be important to keep track of these.

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.
