One of the BEST in the Mystara GAZ series. Provides nice alternate rules for advancing elf characters (needed in the BECMI rules).

The scan for this release is top notch (including the large map).

Run, don't walk to the "add to cart" button on this one.

Not to bad actually. There was some jumble of format when reading through the pdf. And when you C&P the text...only certain sections can be done. I understand the certificate issue, so that's why that happens. All in all...a good buy.

I bought this as a backup to my dead-tree copy. I knew the contents, and was hoping for better quality on the OCR; with the poor OCR, I can't have the computer read it to me.

I'm not visually impaired, or anything... I just like to have it read by the computer.

I also tend to use home-made cheat sheets; I can't, for example, pull the spell text and make a list with just the spells my players are using.

For those without the dead-tree, this is the product that lets elves go up in levels and get clerical magics... without being clerics. The treekeepers are a type of cleric, but their clerical spells are integrated with their magical ones... so unlike AD&D/D&D3E elven clerics, they have a VERY different feel. If you are going to play Cyclopedia or Basic/Expert/Companion/Master D&D, this is a key product to have.

It also details what clanmasters and treekeepers can make with the clan relics, what they do, and how elves function in their unique environment.

<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: clear, readable scans. Awesome rules expansion. Really great and unique treatment of the Elves.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The OCR is very poor. It's obvious that no oversight was done during the OCR. In one column, I found 2 inches of column missing, 5 obvious errors, and 10 words dropped.

If the OCR was at least consistent and whole text, I'd be satisfied with quality and very satisfied with value.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Disappointing<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>
