These new shield tricks include

  • Casting Shield on an ally
  • Shield Blocking for an ally with the Shield spell
  • Shield copying the statistics of a physical shield (but passing off the damage to it)
  • Creating a Shield in mid-air to save an ally from falling or being moved
  • An activity to remove the 10 minute recharge time on Shield (dedication)
  • Feats for additional reactions for Shield Blocking
  • A way to "trap" an ally inside a bubble made of the Shield spell to protect them from harm
  • A way to use Shield as offensive cantrip by throwing it
  • A trick to explode your Shield spell when you block with it
  • A trick to Shove an enemy that you Shield Block
  • A feat to gain Abjuration spells from any spell list as innate spells
  • A trick to make your Shield spell block more times before breaking
  • A feat to upgrade the AC bonus of Shield in exchange for its Hit Points
  • A way to increase the Hardness of your Shield by spending a spell slot
  • A way to apply an armor property rune to targets of your Shield
  • A way to reflect spells with your Shield spell back at their source

Can you please rename the Novel_Options__Barrier_MageInfinite-min.pdf file to be Novel_Options__Barrier_Mage_V1.3 or V1.4, so that we don't have to go to the changeling to try to figure out if it's newer than V1.2 or not?

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.
