Re: JTAS errata

Loved the Mainstrider 300T in JTAS 4, but noticed one (or two, not sure) Errata (page 11): 1): The price for the Weapons is for the empty double turrets ONLY. Adding 2 pulse lasers and 2 beam lasers + 2 missile racks raises the costs to MCr2.5 and MCr3.5 (MCr84.865 total); 2): No 10% discount appli...

Ooooh, not 21 (a few titles were PODs already), but great news nevertheless :D , I'm definitely getting a couple of the new PODs before Brexit.

Re: JTAS errata

Pirates of Drinax, Book 1 has the clan name spelled two ways: Tokohfealr and Tokohfearl. I think it's actually OK for multiple spellings of alien words. It adds to the realism. Consider the world today, where foreign words in a different alphabet are translated to English and spelled differently. "...

To be tiresomely pedantic, it is 0810/Ranib, the subsector, but 0840/Trojan Reach, the sector.
Huh? You learn something new every day, I believed those stats were for "Hex and Subsector" and not for "Hex in the Subsector" :oops: ...

Pedanticness is good.

A general-purpose lab vessel might make do with drones and small craft optimized for specific environments, perhaps with modular science packages; the main vessel would provide quarters, labs, workshops, and small craft space.
