Any word on Runner's Tool Kit? I might be the only one interested in a new GM screen but it sounded pretty good.

Merged.

Sorry Pax. DMFubar beat you to it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Out of curiosity, what did they end up doing with the Overlapping Grenade Blast rules? Still additive?

Error in the really large dice pools example. It says "or 23 dice (Large Dice Pool)" when it should say 32 dice.

Method, grenades are still additive. The rules have been tweaked a bit though.

What I mean is in the playtest draft the grenade blasts were just straight additive, as in 2 grenades means 15P + 15P = 30P. Is it the same in the final?

No, you calculate damage for each grenade on the target (fracturing in distance, etc). Take the full amount of the highest, plus half of all others.

Of course they do. They have also listened after any PDF came out but before it went to the printers. Don't know if they will have time for this one since it is already at the printers. I actually found a few errors already.

Second error is page 155, Ares Shockbeam description, second paragraph. Says "... brick or orichalcum...", when it should say "brick of orichalcum"

Third error is page 156, RFID Rounds description. Says "Military power is at is core a political...". The "a" should be removed.

Oh, and the 144F availability... priceless!

Cluster of errors on page 161. The Microtronica Azteca Spellslinger has no chart entry. At the end of the Spellslinger's discription, it starts talking about commlinks with no new item marker (all other points in the gear section, including the individual commlinks, are bolded and use colons).

Edit: Never mind on the chart entry of the Spellslinger, found it next page. Weird that it's description is first, but its chart entry is right before software.

Emergency Field Dressing has a description (page 163), but I have not been able to find a chart entry for it. I quadruple checked after what I found with Spellslinger, and could not find it anywhere.

Hedgehog Nanites have a discription (page 164), but no entry on the chart with all the nanites.

Jason,

Do you guys have time to give this thing another proof read and fix errors? I just lightly skimmed the fluff so I can't give you any input there, but I'm finding one or more errors for every page in the crunch I'm reading.

Gonna wait for the hardcopy release for WAR. Also, the Catalyst site says Spells & Chrome will be available on Dec. 22nd. Is that PDF or hardcopy? So far, I've wishlisted SRM 3-08, 09, 11, 12 & This Old Drone PDF's on DriveThru. After a recent ordering snafu with Borders, I'm going to order Spells & Chrome through my local Barnes & Noble. I may have to wait until ICON (April 15th-17 2011) for most of the other upcoming books.

This is a very odd error report.

My guess is that it's *meant* to be, 'Military power is at *its* core *a* political…', in which case the error report is erroneous.

Another possibility is, 'Military power is at [] core *a* political…', and the error report is still wrong. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

It is further possible that it's, 'Military power is at [] core [] political…', and, yep, error report is still wrong, in a different detail.
