The Professional
One of the Unlikely Heroes

Length: 4 pages + licence

There are many occupations that need a skilled hand, a keen eye, and a quick mind. The middle classes of the world are made up of experts with varying degrees of skill, plying their trade and earning an honest living. Some skills are so well regarded and paid that there are never any shortages of apprentices, and the greatest of artisans gain such stature and renown as to be figures of note throughout the lands.

Among them, some gifted individuals speak of times when there is almost a melding of mind and body, where they seem to enter a Zone where every action is precise, every perception accurate and the greatest acts of skill can be wrought.

Be that as it may, sometimes trouble comes uncalled even into the most secure of dwelling and civilized city. And even the most devoted of workers may then have need of more than their craft to survive.

The talented experts of the world are Professionals.

Fantasy literature abounds with tales of ordinary folk, lifted to the status of Hero by extraordinary events. The Unlikely Heroes are seven character classes with concepts drawn from the standard NPC classes in the DMG. They are for those exceptional people who choose not to adventure, but should fate intervene, their quality shines through.

The Unlikely Heroes package offers some nice, balanced alternatives to the traditional D20 class system. My players loved the variation of choice.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Ver [...]

A great idea, I feel like one of d20s biggest weaknesses is the rabid early power progression, there is little time to watch your character grow, the jump from beginner to hero is a little too abrupt. The idea of starting as an every day guy/gal and ha [...]

Again, rather well-made and a good idea. However, the "zone" class ability irks me somewhat. I'm not entirely sure I'd want one of my players play a professional, but I will problably use it for NPCs. [...]

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.
