My group is liking a lot of the changes from LFG Original to the Deluxe version. The new color art looks AWESOME!!! :)
We've been playing the Original rules for about a year now. My PCs are a Magic User, Fighter, and a Ranger (NPC) all on 4th level now.
We were hoping you would reorganize the spell list. We don't mind that the entire 120 spells (1st through 6th Levels) are arranged in alphabetical order. But it's currently A LOT of page turning to find the spell description we are looking for. For example: some of the 6th Level spells are in the front of the list, 1st are in the back, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Level spells are mixed in the middle of the list, it's a bit of a pain in the butt flipping pages back and forth.
We were hoping you would arrange all of the 1st Level spells, 2nd Level spells, 3rd, 4th, etc. together in the Deluxe edition and then alphabetically list them with in their levels. That way time is not wasted looking for each level's spells.
Thanks for all of your hard work on the new edition.
Hi all, now that the Draft LFG Deluxe PDF links have gone out via DTRPG, I have disabled the Dropbox link. Cheers, Steve.
Thank you Aaron for this feedback. Yes that is the intention. I've updated the description in my master doc to say starting luck for the halfling, and just "luck" for allies (removed the reference to maximum).
In the Halfling description it mentions increases to maximum Luck. The language is a bit confusing because the Luck stat doesn’t mention “maximum”, only starting (and current) luck.
Should this be read as Halflings get +1 to starting luck and other characters near them have their current luck treated as one higher?
Thanks! I realized after sending the comment that this would probably disappear in print; however, if that's a possibility, turning it into grayscale colours in the PDF would be nice, since I use that a lot, even at the table (I bought an iPad Pro for that purpose last year and now find myself using paper less and less).
Cheers all! Ezequiel I've added your full name to the master document. Sebastian I agree about the low contrast headings and will experiment with those more (although in print they seem to stand out more). In the B&W hardcover all table colours etc will print as shades of grey; but I'll experiment with those too. Thanks for this feedback, I appreciate it.
Thanks for the preview!
The art looks great for both colour and black&white versions. However, I'm not sure if I find the choice of colours for heading and tables entirely convincing. I tend to think, that dropping the remaining colours in the black&white version would look better; also, the colour composition of tables in the colour version is a bit odd (e.g. on page 12), and the headings have a rather low contrast (maybe having them in black as the rest of the text would help here, too).
I have yet to dive into the content in detail, so no specific feedback on content updates yet.
I was able to download the adventure bundle this morning (well, morning here in North America). Not just purchase it, but actually *download* it. As zip files no less! DTRPG might finally be working again.
Just a small detail. In the backer list there is only may name. Can you add my surname please? It should be Ezequiel Fiumara. Thank you for your amazing work.
Looks amazing, so far!
Sorry Troy my apologies! I must have copied the wrong link in the original update post. Here are direct links to each of the files:
Black & White:
With respect to the draft PDFs, by draft I mean that the text is intended to be final (subject to residual typos, and possibly some very minor tweaks pending feedback), but the art is incomplete. You will notice a number of obvious blank art slots unfilled in both PDFs. The reason for this is those art assets are still being created, with the latest due 31 March 2019.
Troy if you press the little back arrow in the top left corner in Dropbox, it will take you to the folder which has both files inside.
FYI. The link goes to just the color pdf.
