Page 7, Combatants section

This section refers to the 3326-3327 RAT (twice) but the RAT on page 6 is labeled "3220-3227".

It also includes the dreaded "pg. XX".

Yeah, I'm taking this too seriously but hey, the OCD is strong with me.

The first one is correct, 3326-3327.

That should be p. 6.

That's too big to be a 5, definitely a 10.

Page 2 of the pdf mentions a record sheet for the EXT-7D Exterminator II which is used by the Ebony Commandos, which is missing from the pdf,


Put in missing RS.

Not errata.

It's a stealth EXT. (I'll let you figure that out....)



No record sheet needed.

Hello,

I would currently cite the following in the credits section, p. 2, Third League Turning Point: Free Taiw...St. Ives:

Quote
"For more information about the Battle to free Taiw...
St. Ives and the people who took part in it, feel free
to make it up as you go along…"

Hopefully, that helps.

Thank you,

Got a couple of possible erratas.

Pages: Hogarth and Orca recordsheets
Errors:
1) Both Superheavy 'Mechs use 3rd Gen. Cockpits instead of Superheavy Cockpits
2) Both Superheavy 'Mechs use 3rd Gen. Endo Steel instead of Superheavy Endo Steel
3) Both Superheavy 'Mechs use standard Gyros instead of Heavy Duty Gyros
4) Both Superheavy 'Mechs use 3rd Gen. Fusion Engines which take up 6 crit slots in the CT instead of only taking up 3 crit slots.
5) Both Superheavy 'Mechs mount 3rd Gen. Missile 20, but ammo bins are labelled "Ammo (3G5...", not "Ammo (3G20...)
Possible corrections:
For errors 1 & 2 if there is a 3rd Gen Superheavy version, use that, if not, up to the author.
For error 3, recordsheet just lists as Gyro, not 3rd Gen Gyro, so we are left to assume we are to use normal gyro rules already in print, therefore change Gyro to Heavy Duty Gyro
For error 4, unless there is a special rule to 3rd Gen Fusion Engines in Superheavy 'Mechs that we haven't seen yet, remove the lower 3 crit slots of 3rd Gen Fusion Engine and move up any equipment that had been placed below.
For error 5, change ammo bins to "Ammo (3G20..."


Pages: All recordsheets
Error:
"3rd Generation" is abbreviated one of 4 ways, "3rd Gen", "3rd. Gen", "3rd Gen.", or "3rd. Gen."
Possible correction:
Pick one to use and fix the rest.


Not an error, but a suggestion for improvement. The ammo bins for the 3rd Gen Missile racks are abbreviated "Ammo (3G#)" where # is the size of the missile rack. I would suggest changing that to "Ammo (3GM3)" to make it clear that it is an ammo bin for a 3rd Gen Missile rack and not an ammo bin for some other 3rd Gen weapon or equipment.

All the recordsheets are as intended. There are not any errors on them, only features. The tech of Third League is different than the Blakist SuperHeavy 'Mechs.

With regards,

....Maybe.
