Mythras Errata - Official Thread

Mythras Errata - Official Thread

Postby Pete » Mon Aug 22, 2016 12:24 pm

Hello one and all, this is the official errata thread for Mythras. Please note any true errors you find in the book here, rules questions should be asked in that section of the forum as normal.

Alas, even though Mythras is effectively the fifth printing of the rules, some errors were introduced when shortening the book to 300 pages and revising its layout for better clarity. These were only discovered after the book was sent to print when setting up the hyperlinks for the pdf, so we apologise to those who expected a near perfect book. The good news is that we managed to correct all but one of them in the pdf, but I'll list the first batch here, just to head off future replication when the print books arrive. None are major flaws by any means, so hopefully they won't put you off buying the book.

So apologies from Loz and I for letting these slip through.

The list thus far is as follows...

Incorrect page references:
Page 6. Character Sheet ref should be pages 302-303. FIXED
Page 45. Haggling page ref should be p56. FIXED
Page 61. Weapon size page ref should be p94. FIXED
Page 61. Combat Effects page ref should be p95. FIXED
Page 71. Diseases and Poisons resulting in Bleeding page ref should be p75. FIXED
Page 109. Stats for close combat and ranged weapons ref should be p63-65. FIXED
Page 133. Descriptions of specific spirits page ref should be p145. FIXED
Page 144. Endowment Creature Ability ref should be p214. FIXED
Page 184. Consecrate ref for Anathaym's Saga should be removed. FIXED
Page 188. Rain of Substance text and ref for Intimidate ability should be "(see page 216)". FIXED
Page 202. Chaotic Blessing ref should be 275-276. FIXED
Page 215. Chaos Feature ref should be 275-276. FIXED
Page 279. Pre-printed Character Sheets ref should be 302-303. FIXED
Page 287. Task System ref should be page 65. FIXED

Incorrect format:
Page 11. Text box missing CR before Healing Rate paragraph, plus paragraph descriptors should be made semibold italic. FIXED

Rule Clarification:
Page 78. 1st bullet point clarifying application of falling damage. Should read "Damage is rolled separately for each location; it is not spread among them.". FIXED

Missing Table:
Page 55. Missing the Minimum Maintenance Costs table referred to on p54. Table should be added to page 55. FIXED

Wrong table reference:
Page 95. Special Effects 3rd paragraph. Text refers to Differential Levels of Success table which was removed to save space and avoid duplication. Paragraph should read "The number of Special Effects received depends on the difference between the levels of success, as illustrated on the Differential Roll Results table (see page 51)." Remember to add the hyperlink. FIXED

General Mistakes:
Page 101. Weapon Malfunction. Remove header text in parenthesis. STILL OUTSTANDING
Page 245. Ghoul combat style should read "Deathless Horror (Claws, Teeth) 71%". STILL OUTSTANDING

Misplaced pages:
Pages 26 & 27. The stand alone and self contained Basic Character Creation Elements and Character Creation Summary pages are currently in the wrong location. Both pages should be moved from the end of chapter 2 to the end of chapter 3. STILL OUTSTANDING

Well, that's a bummer, especially in light of how the shading in the tables in Classic Fantasy were botched. I'll probably wait until you have the pdf sorted out then buy it, avoiding the physical copy.

My condolences on your continued printing problems. It is a sad shame given how good your products tend to be.

Speaking of errata, you might want to update your forum signature Pete.

We're not sure what went wrong. Some human error, obviously, but we've discovered some InDesign bugs too that we didn't catch until a couple of days ago that we simply wouldn't have found through the usual proofing process. That said, we'll be extra diligent in future, and Rome will go through an additional proofing review. We found, for example, that ligatures (which everyone loves) turn themselves on without prompting when a source file is opened. This does egregious things to layout that aren't always fixed by turning the bloody ligatures off. It's a known issue with InDesign, and has been for at least 2 years. When we opened a file for work, on went the ligatures, much to everyone's surprise and horror.

What we wanted to do was get these issues out to you guys as soon as we found them, because we cannot halt the print run. Obviously they're regrettable, but as Pete says, none of them are major failings. Save missing a table out. That was my fault. I blame the drink, drugs and rock n roll lifestyle I'm forced to lead.

Pg 149 Fetches entry. The stat block section on Spirit abilities makes reference to the Fetch Abilities table, which does not appear to be present.

The bookmarks for the game system chapter are... Not right :) they are not as neatly organized and half of them are not there. Screen shot attached.
