(Not So) Advantageous Abilities (5e)

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

Advantageous Abilities provides Game Masters a toolkit with which they can easily add feature abilities to monsters and NPCs, giving their NPCs an advantageous edge (or just a little role-playing fun).

Each product in this line has more than 15 themed feature abilities, and instructions that allow GMs to easily customize existing creatures or create all new foes.  

(Not So) Advantageous Abilities features twenty abilities for GMs to give their NPCs a custom Achilles’ heel.  Making the most of this weakness can add flavour and fun to a campaign, creating a memorable nemesis and a little role-playing fun. 

Keep your PCs guessing with abilities like Squirely, have them laughing with Wheezer, or get them groaning with Flatulently Foul.

No matter your choice, this PDF is sure to make flavourful and (not-so) effective NPCs.

This product was released for April Fool's Day 2017.

Are CR adjustments for creatures starting with CRs less than 1, divided by 2?

Thanks for reaching out, Jeandré.
"CR adjustments are multiplied by 1/2 if they’re being applied to a creature with a starting CR less than 1," which is the same as dividing by 2, so you've got the right idea! Hope you are enjoying the PDF.

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.
