ZIP File

The Book of Distinctions & Drawbacks Modern Revised presents a comprehensive character advantage/disadvantage system for modern-day d20 characters. The BODD Modern is more than a simple translation of the extremely popular Book of Distinctions & Drawbacks? it's an expansion and an improvement, offering 70 info-packed pages (in a color version for on-screen reading and a black-and-white version for easy printing) at an extremely reasonable price.

Inside you'll find 140+ character disadvantages, 17 character background advantages, a limited "lifepath" (random background embellishment) system, and a set of Advanced Occupation Packages? templates pre-loaded with occupation, class, feat, advantage, and flaw selections! Review: A- (91%) "If you?ve been lamenting that the d20 System doesn?t make provisions for this sort of thing, then this PDF is for you!"

d20 has some great ideas. Classes that act as a sort of archetype of character development, feats so that you can have more options as to more refined development, and quite a few prestige classes (or, in this case, advanced classes) to fill even more [...]

I realy like the "Plug N Play" feel of this book. It's very easy to insert the Distinctions (perks) & Drawbacks (flaws) into the D20M framework. It does this without altering the rules or forcing the GM to have to work like mad to get the [...]

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.
