[GRAMel] Reign/Region Errata in Beasts and Barbarians

#1 Postby SavageGamerGirl » Thu May 02, 2013 10:00 am

I've been reading through my B&B PDF and have found a bit of errata. It's fairly easily fixed the next time you update the PDF.

In many cases, it seems that the word "reign" was used instead of "region."

pg. 14. "Tricarnia was a huge reign created by some bastardized survivors of the cataclysm that hit the Keronians."

pg. 16. "the instant capitulation of Tricarnia and annexation of the northern reign to the Empire"

pg. 19. "most of the reign is reduced to ruined shells"

pg. 20. "razed the border city of Collana and swarmed into the reign."

pg. 23. "white men reign in the south, has an"

pg. 41. "infest the roads and the grasslands of the reign."

pg. 47. "Ngobi have also built a new capital of the reign somewhere in the heart of the Savannah"

pg. 52. "Syranthia City, the capital of the reign,"

pg. 20. "The Borderlands were small, independent reigns,"

pg. 34. "The northern reigns including the Caledlands, Northeim and the Cairnlands are"

pg. 38. "Ivory Savannah Tribes and other barbaric reigns of the Verdant Belt"

pg. 41. "trade between the western reigns and the Far East."

pg. 45. "Tricarnia and other northern reigns."

Under Fighting Bird.

• In the Eyes!: A fighting bird that scores a raise on a Fighting attack hits its target in the eyes. The target must make an Agility roll. In case of failure, he suffers the One Eye Hindrance. If he scores a 1 on the Fighting die, regardless of the Wild Die, he is affected by the Blind Hindrance instead.

I assume this should be Agility not Fighting.

*****

Spirit of the Betrayer, under special abilities Hovering Pace, the sentence should end with a period not a semi-colon.

• Hovering Pace: ... rolls; <- should be a period.

Just makes sure you don't end up with, ".. with his death, the region of the King had ended.."

Right! Not every use of the word "reign" was incorrect. The only ones I found are the ones noted above.

Thanks SavageGirl!
Sablemage guessed right: in italian "regno" means both "kingdom" and "reign" so I picked the right word :wink:.

We'll fix it!

In that case, you could just as easily use "land" or "kingdom" instead of "region."

Nice!
We could use this topic to report all the bugs of B&B!

SavageGamerGirl, can I ask you to edit the first post of the thread with the bugs?
I know, it is a chore, but we'll reward you in some manner :wink:

Was a revised version of the core pdf ever produced? I bought the Platinum Bundle (which, by the way, is an absolute steal given the quality of the material :D ) from DriveThru at the weekend and it still seems to have the same errata listed in this thread.

I jump on the wagon just to ask a clarification about the Fear of Magic hindrance. The question is: which parts of the hindrance are related to the minor version, and which to the major one?

1 - From what I understand, I see an initial "fluff/roleplay" part:
He tries in every way to avoid the supernatural and even friendly magic.
(but that could simply be the initial description of what follows).

2 - Then this one, of course related to the Major version:
In case of the Major Hindrance, his revulsion also prevents him from using magical objects, Lotus potions included.

3 - Then this part:
Whenever forced to face or use magic, the character must make a Fear roll.
(I don't know if this is still related to the Major version, or if it's the mechanic for both the versions)

So, to summarize, I see this indrance in 2 different ways (and I hope at least one is correct):
> 1 - just fluff (gm & player can use it as they please) / 2 mechanical rules for the major version / 3 mechanical rules for both the minor and the major version.
> 1 - fluff/roleplay part for the minor version / 2 & 3 mechanical rules for the major version.

Errata: pag. 94 " it can deals terrible damage at distance. It is a very old gladiatorial arm, also named spiked Chakram"
It should be "weapon".

Pag. 90 probably" Flails" should be formatted as a category.
(and... Just 1?)

Pag. 170 Phalanx Officer, the customized "joker" version is probably missing something.

Sorry for the delay. For some reason, I missed this thread. The Fear of Magic Hindrance has been clarified in the upcoming Steel Edition (the next version of B&B). The current (unedited) text is the following one:

Fear of Magic (Minor/Major)
Magic is always mistrusted in the Dread Sea Dominions, but the hero is a particular case: he truly dreads it. With the minor version of the Edge, he tries in every way to avoid the supernatural and even friendly magic.
In case of the Major Hindrance, his revulsion also prevents him from using magical objects, Lotus potions included.
In addition, only with the Major version, whenever forced to face or use magic, the character must make a Fear roll.

Tell me if it is clearer now (yes, I am using you as a guinea pig ;)).

Of course it is. However, you could probably keep it simpler writing it this way:

Magic is always mistrusted in the Dread Sea Dominions, but the hero is a particular case: he truly dreads it.
With the minor version of the Edge, he tries in every way to avoid the supernatural and even friendly magic.
With the major version, his revulsion also prevents him from using magical objects, Lotus potions included, and whenever forced to face or use magic, the character must make a Fear roll.

PS: about the Steel edition, is there a chance to get an upgrade of the PDF file, if we already bought the Golden Edition?
