The Artisan
One of the Unlikely Champions

Length: 7 pages + licence

Some craftspeople are more than just workers for a wage.

For those who are driven, who have devoted their lives to the study of a craft, an opportunity might become available to develop it further. More than just a manufacturer, they become akin to an artist in their chosen medium. Their least of constructions is as good as the master craft of other craftspeople.

They might learn one of three paths: the Arcane, the Pious or the Technical; and each in turn have advantages in terms of development and ability. Their abilities are of little value in a brawl, but they can influnce powerful people and even entire cultures by their work.

The talented and driven of craftspeople are the Artisans.

Fantasy literature abounds with tales of ordinary folk, lifted to the status of Hero by extraordinary events. The Unlikely Champions are extensions on the Unlikely Heroes classes, and are inspired by the concept that even the elite of the world are not nessisarily adventurers in the classic sense. These are seven Prestige character classes with concepts that are for those exceptional people who choose not to adventure, but should fate intervene, their quality shines through.

Here are the ones currently available:
The Artisan
The Commander
The Disciple
The Emissary

In my campaigns the "NPC" core classes in the DMG actually see a fair amount of play as PC classes. This product was a nice and welcome extension. Very well thought out, decent job at balancing.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: [...]

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.
