Marchland Errata

As much as we'd like to put out a flawless product, it doesn't always work out that way.

To let us know when things are less than perfect, just comment on this post.

[CURRENT ERRATA]

Performace Skill should be listed as a Spirit based skill.

*****

In the Characters chapter, "roll" was replaced with "role" in several places.

*****

The first four tables in the Appendix have the wrong values.
They Should be:
Alchemy: 2, 3-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12
Unraveling: 2, 3-4, 5-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12
Exorcism: 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12
Backlash: 2, 3-5, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12
*****

There are a few layout glitches for Gastown Park. Also, the last paragraph in the Gastown park should be italicized.

*****

The Sidhe and Troll examples include a Scourge called Oathbound. This Sourge was deeded too punitive and replaced with True Speak. For the Sidhe, replace Oathbound with True Speak. For the Troll, use Bestial Rage.

    Hi, this essay is despite the small, but rich in content. Reverie verbiage. If you want to see details:http://www.fieec.fr/hollisterx.aspx

A couple of things have already been pointed out:
In the Character chapter, the Satyr sample should have a Performance (Flute) skill of d6.
The Fir Bolg's Toughness should read 11(2).

The new skill - Performance is a Spirit based skill.

Why I should be more careful with search and replace...
There are several places where "role" should have been "roll". Sheesh!

I have the pdf version, and I suspect there is a typo on page 66. Where it discusses Gas Town, the first paragraph ends with a note about how common fires are. The next paragraph begins about a gang of Ash Boys. Due to the sudden shift, and the fact that this is somewhat "secret" knowledge, I think this paragraph should be italicized. In addition, the Gastown Park title is by itself on page 65, while the entry is on page 66. I think it would look nicer if another line was inserted so that the title could be on the same page as the description.

Oathbound is listed as a scourge for two of the example European Fae but it's not on the list of Scourges.

Thanks guys. See my comments below

@Eric - I've fixed the formatting, and yes, the text at the end of Gastown Park should have been italicized. Fixed that too.

@Josh - Oathbound was one of the original Scourges, but was deemed to punitive so it was replaced with True Speak. For the Sidhe, I've replaced Oathbound with True Speak. For the Troll, I've changed it to Bestial Rage. I think both changes are thematically appropriate.

I will try to get an update out in the next few days.
