Tactics & Strategies: Attacks of Opportunity

Watermarked PDF

Attacks of opportunity are important in many d20 games, as they introduce a strategic element that forces players to consider carefully the consequences of their characters' actions in combat. Unfortunately, this added layer of complexity may prove daunting to some gamers. The mechanic often falls by the wayside as an afterthought, used only with great reluctance, and as a result, many gaming groups miss out on a rewarding aspect of d20 combat that makes it more than the simple "attack-hit-attack-miss-repeat" system it is often accused of being. Attacks of Opportunity should provide a basic outline of how attacks of opportunity work, as well as a number of ideas for using the attack of opportunity mechanic to its fullest potential. This 13-page PDF is an easy-to-integrate items and just the sort of thing needed for DMs to add depth to any great d20 fantasy campaign world and gaming session.

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.
