    The OCR on some of these PDFs is less than ideal.

    I agree. I did notice some of the usual OCR offenders such as "1d4 + l" with the "1" being substituted with the letter "L".

    It's funny how these pdfs came about in the first place. Apparently WotC asked people to scan their old books, which is why there is a huge quality discrepancy, and either the scanner or WotC added OCR after the fact. Very little effort was made to clean up the scans or verify if the OCR was correct.

    Some of the PDF are bad or don t translate well to a word document for editing but i have to be honest... after hours, days of checking the OCR, copy/pasting, adding automation... i recalled doing this one or the barbarian full time (8h a day min) over a week when i was in covid isolation...i might have overlooked the QC part of it at the end due to tiredness. So i am happy to correct whatever.
