Wow, thats a lot of errors in a second printing.

If I didn't know any better I'd say they've got Kevin Siembiedas wife doing the proof reading and editing on that one.

And therein lies the heart of proofing.

Please remember that even with dozens of people proofing these books, errors are likely to slip through. It's not the number of minor (and many of those are REALLY minor) things missed, but the many major things that are caught. I bet you can find just as large a list of errors in a brand new D&D book, and they've got just a slightly larger budget than we do. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Obviously we appreciate you pointing these out, and will endeavor to incorporate them into the next iteration of the book & PDF (of which the PDF release will be free as always).

Hyperbole (pronounced /haɪˈp??bəli/ hye-PER-buh-lee; "HYE-per-bowl" is a mispronunciation) comes from ancient Greek "ὑπε?βολή" (meaning excess or exaggeration) and is a figure of speech in which statements are exaggerated. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is rarely meant to be taken literally. Hyperbole is used to create emphasis. It is a literary device often used in poetry, and is frequently encountered in casual speech.

Yes from wikipedia. ^^

I was going to say something about much and many. Much is used for non-count nouns and many for countable nouns. See difference between greatly and great.

I would just like to take just a minute for those who were mentioning how many "mistakes" were made ...

Misspellings, format errors and typos are not, by definition in the publishing world, called "errata". When information is wholly left out or mis-presented (such as the incorrect numbers or data) (and there was some of both), that is when "errata" is published. I am just a little incredulous that someone would pick apart the spelling errors, and complain about something being in italics or not. The information is still there, and you can still read it just fine. And if it's one letter out of alphabetical order in the list, it's not like we aren't all familiar with multiple persons on an editing team ... list get compiled, and little things happen. If all that kind of stuff is taken off this list, and simply real "errata" is looked at, there's really not all that much left to complain about. Especially if the correct info is still presented in the book, just the table conflicts the text or other table, and things like that.

I say this, because I am a 24+ year gamer, and alot of people dont' appreciate how well these books are produced nowadays, and how much we all appreciate when companies DO publish actual errata. I still recall gaming books in the 80s and how awful the layouts were, and how non-existant organization was. Within my personal experience, the SR4 bools are absolutely marvelous and well-designed. I don't mind the little typos ... because I know it could be (and has been) a whole lot worse.

Yes but if you were running a gaming company wouldn't you want free proof reading? That is effetively what was presented here. No reason to just leave errors in a book for no reason. I'm not saying they should fix these and rush out a new printing, but there isn't a real reason to not include fixing these next time they get around to another printing. Besides it doesn't look like anyone was ranting and raving that these errors were there. Seemed more of a, "Btw thought you might want to note these." kind of a deal.
