I think that's identical to the problem Sartris pointed out, it's just that he shifted his books to line up the art.  If you look at the top of his image, you can see the top of one book is higher than the other.

Could be...and why folks shouldn't post incomplete pics. ;)

I looked at his pic and initially thought, Hmm...my books are the same height.

i figured the red box clearly highlighting that the tops of the books didn't line up was sufficient

my bad

I'll be honest...when I look at that I think "hey, one book is taller that the other. But looking at mine side-by-each I see now what you were showing.

Since the Clan Invasion Kickstarter is underway and rather popular, is there any chance that the spelling for the Inner Sphere codename for the Stormcrow can be fixed?

This came up in a fan article I posted awhile ago about the Stormcrow where it was demonstrated that the word "ryoken" is actually Japanese for "passport", whereas the spelling should have been "ryouken" or "ryöken", which means "hunting dog", which seems to be what the original intent was behind the codename the Draconis Combine assigned to the 'mech.

Here's the relevant post and discussion about it:  https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=45387.msg1047463#msg1047463

I think it's just a typo, not everybody has the ability to use symbols over a letter.

Even with the "ryouken" spelling, it's a very long-lived typo  :D

I just did some math with regard to Rifle Cannons, and it appears the -3 damage against BAR 10 armor noted on page 338 of TacOps is in error.  Working through the AToW damage conversions and dropping the AP to 7 yields only -1 damage against BAR 10 armor, not -3.  Calculations here: https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=68549.msg1591802#msg1591802

I thought the newer book (AToW) would trump the older one?

Two different mechanisms. Despite an attempt at unification. The effect in TO is intended.

question about Record Sheets: Clan Invasion

Does a potential mistake in the art used count as errata?



Assuming the answer is yes

-the blackjack and firestarter omnis use the standard 3025 art instead of the 3058 art

-the following use the nuSeen art for all of the variants, including the project phoenix designs.
Locust
Stinger
Wasp
Valkyrie
Phoenix Hawk
Wolverine
Rifleman
Thunderbolt
Archer
Warhammer
Marauder
BattleMaster
Marauder II (except the bounty hunter variant)

Which is correct?:
A) the phoenix designs should use phoenix art

OR

B) i have no idea what you're talking about! what's project phoenix? they've always looked like this! Why would there be alternate art?

There's been no indications whatsoever that Project Phoenix is retconned away. As it is, i understand that TRO Clan Invasion (and TRO Jihad) uses PP art?

Nothing's preventing one from using new classics though.

No, but I asked the question in official space for an official answer to determine how much work I have to do to submit an accurate errata report

Different B than the one posted above. They did NOT give either of the two answers he posted in this thread.

I changed the question in the ask the devs thread to include more options. It’s the “wrong art” option

A not insignificant number of mechs in RS: Clan Invasion have the 2 and 3 slots (life support and cockpit) flip-flopped in the head. Is this eratta?

It was for RS:SW. It's an issue with MegaMek Lab apparently: https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=64909.msg1581622#msg1581622

So not really sure which way this goes, but...

Page 20 of TR3145 The Clans lists the Hadur's armor as

"Compound VM22 Ferro-Fibrous"

However, the state block on page  21 doesn't list it as FF armor and the armor layout (22/20/20/16/18) = 96 points is correct for 6 tons of Standard Armor(6x16 = 96). It is however, ALSO correct for 5 tons of Clan FF Armor (16x5x1.2).

The record sheet in the back of the book doesn't show what kind of armor it is. The record sheet in RS3145u doesn't show what kind of armor it is.

Normally I'd just say the fluff is wrong and go with Standard armor, since the design works better with standard armor (it would be 1 ton underweight with FF armor, but still "technically" legal).

However, TR3150 restates the "Compound VM22 Ferro-Fibrous" armor for its description (though again, the statblock shows standard armor), AND under variants, states "The Hadur currently has two alternate configurations. The first replaces standard ferro-fibrous armor with reactive armor..."

So which way does it go? Which book needs errata? Is it going to be left a ton underweight, or will the armor be adjusted for 6 tons of Clan FF armor? Or will it stay with standard armor, and all instances of FF armor needs to be removed?

I think the claim it has ferro-fibrous is in error. As you say, FF would leave it underweight, so it is probably just an error on the writer's part.
