Post Mecha and Manga Errata Here

Postby Shadowchaser » Wed Jul 29, 2009 1:17 pm

Okay, page 125, second paragraph from the top.

When all roles are given and the time-frame explained, the flashback
scene develops as would any other game session, although the GM has full
rights to stir the story in certain directions, especially where it concerns the
“guest stars” that the other players are in charge of, as these roles are closer
to being assistant Gamemasters than simply secondary characters.

I think you mean 'Steer' the story in certain directions. This could also be improved by being broken down into two or three sentences, for clarity.

Also caught this in the credits section, for the artists:

Annie Hill is an extremely talented artist form teh Norfolk, VA area. Expect to see more of her in the future.

I think you mean 'THE' Norfolk area, not 'TEH' :)

Heh, no, since I copied and pasted directly from the PDF... I just didn't see it. :)

I'm particularly enjoying the Pets section, so this may not have stood out to anyone else.

It seems that the Summoner archetype on p. 114 breaks her 150 stated power points (or, rather, breaks a rule to get there). She has a rank 10 pet, but only 10 ranks in Diverse Menagerie, which specifies on p. 106 that you must purchase twice as many ranks in it as your ranks in Pet in order for it to have any benefit.

Is this an issue with the archetype breaking the rules, or is this an issue with a rules change not making it into the final chapter?

It's time to play "Let's See if They Remembered How Attractive Is Supposed to Work"! <checks> No they did not!

In the Hero Archetypes, the Cool Sempai has Bluff 4 and 2 ranks of Attractive, giving the archetype effectively 12 ranks ... one more than a PL 6 character can have.

In the Villain Archetypes, the Exiled Demon has 18 ranks of Bluff and 2 ranks of Attractive, for a total of 26 for PL calculations! What's particularly annoying about this is that without such considerations, the Exiled Demon is only PL 14 (thanks to the archetype's Will save), rather than the listed PL 15.

Meanwhile, the Jealous Schoolgirl has 11 ranks of Bluff (raising her PL to 6 rather than 5, also consistent with her ranks of Luck) and also has Attractive, raising her PL to 10!

However, the Idol Archetype managed to get it right. Backhanded congratulations.

The Warrior archetype on page 35 has a Strength bonus of +2 and a Mighty Strike 8.
In the Combat section it says Damage[...] +8 (sword).

Shouldn't that be +10 (sword) ?

Also, the description of Conductor twice uses "feat" where it should use "extra".
"...use the Linked feat instead..."
"...some effects of this feat can be used..."

The first paragraph of "Combos" on page 44 also makes reference to a Linked Power Feat.
Disrupt Chi also lists Linked under Power Feats.

I have not yet found an example Mecha whose weapons work out with the correct cost. Either I'm not understanding the mechanics (and I've caught on that "handheld" means "Easy to Lose device" and "mounted" means "Hard to Lose Device" along with the need for explicit mounts for both as mecha features), or all of the costs are off.

Did you also note the difference between the base systems (one mecha point per rank) and complementary systems (five mecha points per rank), and that TL also affects those costs differently?

As complicated as the system is, I wouldn't be surprised if they were all right, or all wrong.

I have had it pointed out to me that the optional Tech Level cost reduction in Chapter 1 was probably being used in the Mecha construction, which may have an impact on the mecha costs. It may be worthwhile just to ntoe this in the construction. Will examine this more closely.
