Expanded Options #07 – Skill Specialization

A facet of 5th Edition Fantasy is its ease of use and uncomplicated nature. However, some players wish for more variety, more diversity, and more overall options to represent their character’s abilities. One of the most common complaints and requests is for there to be more flexibility with skills. Once you’ve selected them for your class and background, there is little to no growth in skills for most 5th Edition Fantasy characters.

We hope to fix that with a simple addition to the rules. Proposed skill specializations would be tied to a skill, and represent a focus within that skill. In this way, a character can find small specializations to either bolster their current skill set or learn new tricks.

These simple rules cover all of the basic attributes and the skills associated with them as well as comprehensive guidelines as to how to gain and use these systems within your 5th Edition setting.

A nice system for introducing some more depth to characters. Applying a proficiency in narrow situations, and even having rules for skill specialization while being proficient in a skill gives useful growth opportunities. [...]

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.
