Contradictory character relationships
« on: 24 February 2020, 01:08:09 »
I was just going through some of books and I came across a contradiction between two of the source books, as far as the lore is concerned.

From Technical Readout: 3067, being told as a report made by Comstar, the character of Hanni Schmitt is offhandedly said to be Coleen Schmitt's mother (page 38), however, from Field Manual: Crusader Clans, a report being made by the Clan Blood Spirit Loremaster claims that Hanni Schmitt is the grandmother of Coleen Schmitt (page 18).

In this specific case, I'm curious which one is true, because they can't both be true without some Chinatown situation in the Black Watch. In a broader sense, I'd also like to know if there is a system fans could use to at least get a general guess about which sourcebooks are accurate, when a contradiction like this occurs.

Thanks for any insight you can give.

Hanni is Colleen’s grandmother.

What a fan can keep in mind when finding contradictions: Unless stated otherwise, a later published source is correct. Also, check the errata forum to see if the issue was addressed.
