Checks made using the affected leg. A broken ankle reduces

This one comes directly from Herb himself:

Hello,

Anyone figured out how exactly the Variable-Pulse Laser Rifle works, in terms of how it's range modifiers are?
Well, darn. That's a minor error, but only insomuch as it doesn't fit how we handled the Sternsnacht Claymore (which replaces the full normal range modifiers with its own). In the case of the VPL Rifle, you're supposed to *add* the weapon's range modifiers to the normal range modifiers used in play. So--Sternsnacht Claymore style--it should read "Range Modifiers: +0/-1/-2/-2".

Hopefully, that helps.

Thank you,

All below: A Time of War, Companion, .pdf release downloaded 9/27/12

Page 250, last sentence: To compute this, take the amount of money added by the tax increase (or taken away by its decrease), and multiply it by the Landholder's Income Percentage.  The math in the example on the next page would need to be updated as well.

Rules issues with Landhold Maintanence in general, pages 249-251: (a.k.a Fun with math)

1) Suggest that the rules math be changed to make the previous year's modified Landhold Budget = the next year's initial Landhold Budget:
Because the Landhold Budget is based on the percentage which was taken by the Landholder the previous year, the formula breaks when the Landholder takes 0% and the following year the Landhold Budget goes to 0 C-Bills, permanently.

2) Suggest rebalancing the bonuses to the administration rolls, and/or % of Landhold Income/Budget gained/lost  due said rolls:
Playing the averages, a character with average attributes, Administration +1 (worse than "Green"), who uses the following:
State Taxes: 20% (+0)
Infrastructure: 34.5% (+8)
Supplies: 15% (+0)
Staff: 15% (+0)
Defense/Security: 15% (+0)
Landholder's Income: 0.5% (no modifier),
and who rolls an average of 7 for their management roll, will increase their Landholder Income and thus the Landhold Budget by 20%/year assuming all remaining modifiers cancel, and will need to roll a -1 (negative one) on 2d6 to succeed.

Said character who starts with an average Knight's Landhold (100,000 C-Bills) will have, on average, the equivalent or better income of a:
Baronet on year 4 (207,360 C-Bills),
Barron on year 8 (429,982 C-Bills),
Viscount on year 12 (891,610 C-Bills),
Count on year 16 (1,884,8843 C-Bills),
Marquess on year 28 (~16,484,470 C-Bills),
and Duke on year 40 (~146,977,200 C-Bills),
...just in time to retire .

If the same character is instead a Veteran (Administration +5) and burns 1 edge before the roll each year (+2), the bonus goes to +35%/year.  This character will have a Duke's income in ~24 years, and will be making over 130x what an average Duke makes (~16,340,000,000 C-Bills... yes, that's Billions) on year 40, all from a 10 square km parcel of land.  Finally, on the character's 60th year, the character would have a personal income of over 6.6 Trillion C-Bills from that same parcel.

PDF p59, Completing the Advanced Battle Armor Critical Hit Table section:

The example given how to fill out the record sheet is incorrect:

   Arthur is using his Grenadier battle armor in an AToW
tactical combat scenario. It uses Standard Stealth armor
(4 slots), a body-mounted, 7-shot SRM 4 (5 slots), an Anti-
Personnel (AP) Weapon Mount in the right arm (1 slot), and
a Modular Weapon Mount (1 slot, with a 3-slot capacity)
in his left arm. The Modular Weapon Mount (MWM) packs
a small laser (2 slots). Arthur verifies all of this from the
Grenadier’s entry in Technical Readout: 3075.
   When filling out the Advanced Battle Armor Critical Hit
Record Sheet, Arthur fills out the first 5 slots of the Body
(Front) location with his SRM-4, fills out the first open slot
on the right arm (right after the manipulator) with his AP
Weapon Mount, and puts the MWM in the corresponding
slot on the left arm. The MWM has a 3-slot capacity, but
the small laser takes up only 2 slots (which Arthur places
immediately after the MWM’s slot), so Arthur leaves the
next slot after the small laser free.


1. As per this errata for TRO3075, the Grenadier has regained its torso-mounted Modular Weapon Mount
2. The Small Laser only requires 1 slot, not 2 slots.
3. The SRM4 plus 7 ammo only require 4 slots, not 5 slots.
4. The phrase "in his" at the end of the 1st para, 2nd sentence (highlighted above) should really read "on the", since it's refering to the suit and not the player, Arthur.
5. Similarly, 2nd para, 1st sentence (highlighted above), should be "the AP Weapon Mount", not "his AP Weapon Mount".

Suggested fix:


   Arthur is using his Grenadier battle armor in an AToW
tactical combat scenario. It uses Standard Stealth armor
(4 slots), an Anti-Personnel (AP) Weapon Mount in the
right arm (1 slot), a Modular Weapon Mount (1 slot, with
a 4-slot capacity) in the body, and a Modular Weapon
Mount (1 slot, with a 3-slot capacity) on the left
arm. The Modular Weapon Mount (MWM) in the body
packs a 7-shot SRM 4 (4 slots), while the one on the arm
packs a small laser (1 slot). Arthur verifies all of this
from the Grenadier’s entry in Technical Readout: 3075.
   When filling out the Advanced Battle Armor Critical Hit
Record Sheet, Arthur fills fills out the first open slot on
the right arm (right after the manipulator) with the AP
Weapon Mount, and puts the two MWMs in the
corresponding slots in the body and the left arm. The
body-mounted MWM has a 4-slot capacity, which the
SRM-4 fills completely, but the small laser takes up only
1 slot on the arm mount (which Arthur places
immediately after the MWM’s slot), so Arthur leaves the
next 2 slots after the small laser free.


(The 3rd paragraph is fine)

PDF, p127, Randall's Rose:

2nd para, 2nd sentence
"This shoots, usually only forty to fifty centimeters long, are good at capturing neckties or perhaps the beard of a careless owner once their new leaves come in."

Should begin with "The shoots...", not "This shoots...".

PDF: Page 195

In the infantry armor construction table Triple Strength Myomer implants have a 0.5 damage divisor, while Dermal Camouflage Armor Implants have a damage divisor of 1. According to the original sources of these implants (Jihad Hotspots 3072 and Jihad Conspiracies Respectively), Triple Strength Myomer imposed no change to the damage an infantry unit sustained, while Dermal Camouflage doubled all damage the infantry unit recieved. Therefore it would appear the two values have been flopped.

Correction: Change the damage divisor of Triple Strength Myomer to 1 and that of Dermal Camouflage to 0.5

Hello,

In the infantry armor construction table Triple Strength Myomer implants have a 0.5 damage divisor, while Dermal Camouflage Armor Implants have a damage divisor of 1. According to the original sources of these implants (Jihad Hotspots 3072 and Jihad Conspiracies Respectively), Triple Strength Myomer imposed no change to the damage an infantry unit sustained, while Dermal Camouflage doubled all damage the infantry unit recieved. Therefore it would appear the two values have been flopped.

Note: A Time of War Companion actually supersedes the data from JHS: 3072 and accounts for the full-body implants by themselves alone. It does this by using the armor conversion rules found earlier in the book (p. 171). Thus:

TSM Implants = 0.5 (BAR 0/0/0/0 = the armor value of an effectively naked character).
Dermal Armor = 2 (BAR 4/4/3/4 converted to TO Infantry Armor Damage Divisor; [4+4+3+4 = 15/10 = 1.5, rounds up to 2]).
Camo Implants = 1 (BAR 2/3/3/2 converted to TO Infantry Armor Damage Divisor [2+3+3+2 = 10/10 = 1]).

Thus, those values are now correct.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thank you,

Advanced Battle Armor Combat Record Sheet

Per this response (and the indicated page)
AToW:  pg. 216-217
Under battle armor melee attacks it states you use the appropriate skill for the melee attack being attempted stating that you use Martial arts for punches kicks, etc, and the table on the preceding page give modifiers to the Martial Arts skill rolls.  The record sheets for Battle armor in both AToW and AToWC both list Manipulators as a weapon with the skill as Pilot/BattleSuit, though.  Which of those skills do you use when making a Melee attack in battle armor?
In melee, you use Martial Arts.

Manipulators on the weapons table should use the skill Martial arts rather than Piloting/BattleSuit

Vintage Personal Armor (pg. 174)

First SLDF Armor Kit

The Cargo Jacket says that its Coverage is Torso (Rear). However most pictures of SLDF infantry (including the color plate in the original Star League Sourcebook) that show the Cargo Jacket show it clearly covering the front of the torso.

As currently written, the "Rear" coverage doesn't seem supported by any of the previous descriptions and it undermines its own purpose as weight saving gear by causing Encumberance due to armor stacking rules without providing any useful protection (unlike the lower tech Load Bearing Vest, which at least provides some frontal armor).

Correction: Either remove the "Rear" coverage note allowing it to provide some supplemental armor to the torso or remove the MBEX values and patch cost and have it not count as armor at all. This will either provide some protection in exchange for the Encumberance or remove the issue by not treating the jacket as armor.

Hello,

The following errata applies to the weapon conversion rules presented on pp. 169-170, A Time of War Companion:

Under Damage Factor (p. 169), change the first sentence to read as follows (changes indicated in bold):
"The Damage Factor for a personal weapon takes its BD value, and multiplies that by the sum of the following: 3.5 + one-fifth of the weapon’s listed Burst value (rounded normally to the nearest whole number, rounding up on .5) + 1 (if the weapon features a splash damage ability)."

In the Infantry Weapon Damage Conversion Table (p. 170), make the following change to the footnotes (change noted in bold):
"†Round normally (.5 rounds up; Single-shot weapons are treated as if they have Burst of 1)"

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thank you,

PDF, First version (2012)

Page 97, regarding the ratings in Attributes that characters could achieve in MW2, the AToW Companion lists some Clan phenotypes as being able to reach a rating of 9.  This is in error; elementals and aerospace fighter pilots could reach 8, but characters with Clan phenotypes were forbidden from getting the Exceptional Attribute advantage, which would keep the MW2 Attribute range at 1-8.  Additionally, the AToW Companion notes 4 as the MW2 average for Attributes, when the MW2 core describes a rating of 3 in an Attribute as average, and 4 as good.

A Time of War Companion, PDF release.

Related to mitchberthelson's post above, the cargo jacket listed as part of the SLDF armor kit on page 174 doesn't seem to have been taken into account in the calculation of the Infantry Armor Divisor in the table on page 195.  If it's providing any protection to the torso at all, it seems it would kick the Divisor up to 2, and make the kit encumbering.

Suggested solution: Incorporate the load bearing quality of the jacket into the fatigues, and make the HC Satchel Battery a removable insert that increases the ballistic protection of the fatigues by +1 (which is enough to give the armor kit a divisor of 2).  Also recommend increasing the weight of the Satchel Battery plates to at least match a normal satchel battery (i.e., 3 kg).  This would also explain how the ComStar kit (which has a non-encumbering divisor of 2) is inferior to the SLDF version beyond the sophistication of the helmet sensors (as they went with a micro power pack for the helmet vice the much larger capacity of the satchel battery).

Just bought the PDF from your store, so I'm assuming the most up to date (though, I will say that a lot of the errors mentioned in this thread are still present... hmmmmm)

Anyway, Free World's League Rank Table, Page 32.

Its a mess of footnotes, half of which are missing the actual footnotes.  I'm assuming that the dagger and double dagger markers indicate separate sub-affiliations based on context, but without the footnotes to tell which ones they are...

Page 28 has a discussion on "Zero-Level Ranks" that is internally inconsistent:
Quote
Zero-Level Ranks and Trait Costs:
As with the basic Rank Trait shown in A Time of War, the costs (in Trait Points) for each of these ranks remains equivalent to the numerical value of the listed rank level, with a rank of O3 or E3 costing 3 TPs each. (Officer ranks, designated by an “O”, also require that the character either hail from the Clans, or possess the entire Officer Skill Field). The zero-level ranks for both officer and enlisted grades are a new addition, however. These ranks nominally reflect characters who are either still undergoing training or who have been awarded a provisional or minimal level of authority. Possessing these ranks still requires the full training prerequisites for a 1-TP level of that rank’s grade (or 3-TP, plus Officer Training Field for O-0 ranks), but at character creation, these minimal ranks may be purchased as a special 0.5-TP Rank Trait (worth 50 XP) for E0 (3-TP Rank, worth 300 XP, for O-0).

I believe the first part is in error, and should be change to read: "As with the basic Rank Trait shown in A Time of War (page 124), the cost (in Trait Points) for each enlisted rank remains equivalent to the numerical value of the listed rank level, with a rank of E3 costing 3TPs.  Officer ranks, designated by an "O", are offset in the table, and require that the character either hail from the Clans, or possess the entire Officer Skill Field."
