It needed additional testing and there wasn't time. It will be in the Companion.

The monk lists proficiency in the caltrop, though caltrops are not listed as a weapon. I'm not certain it makes a lot of sense for them to be listed with the other high speed sorts of weapons as the use case is quite a bit different.

The chain is not listed as flexible, though it is in the core book.

I suppose they're listed more to let the player know they are a 'weapon' the monk is allowed to use, then to say this is the skill level they are used at. Caltrops are just a weapon that monks were allowed in AD&D, so it carried over. I'll add their stats and rules for their use to the Companion.

It appears to be listed as such in Mythras, but not my copy of RuneQuest 6. It's my guess that it was changed at some point and I didn't get the memo. ;)
I'll add it to the errata.

"They do not possess the wings common to their pixie counterparts and therefore live a grounded existence."

the stat block appears to be a cut and paste of the Pixie one, as it quite clearly has wings. It also lists no AP on the locations, but clearly lists leather armor on the brownie.

Thanks raleel. The Body Location table should be that of a human, with 2 armor in all locations. The rest looks correct.

from the ranger - " Additional rounds spend aiming grant no further advantage. Finally, when aiming your Critical chance is equal to 1/20th your final modified skill instead of the normal 1/10th. This differs from the fighter version of this ability."

is this right? rangers have a critical range _penalty_ when aiming?

p271 has a rank 2 miscellaneous items table, as does p273 :) they are different, and I assume the latter is rank 3, as it continues as rank 3 on the next page.

Good catch. Typo on page 273. Should be Rank 3.

It's tough to be a ranger. :D

Ok, as Magister Ludi already brought to light, math isn't my strong suit. :oops: post16673.html?hilit=1/20th#p16673

It should read 1/5th.

Excellent. Thanks! Will keep nitpicking. There are a couple of us at my table that are... um... professionals :)
