Book one, pg. 183, the unveiling
According to its designers, Vorito Highport is a rotating dodecahedron with reconfigurable docking arms extending from each primary vertex
I'm pretty sure all of your art shows the docking arms extending from each face of the dodecahedron, not each vertex.

Book one, pg. 21 SDB Since these are going to come up, perhaps you could mention some suggested books for these? Given the nature of the reach I'm guessing that the two designs in high guard are unlikely to crop up much (other f that at GeDeCo Worlds anyway) as they're dedicated designs and of high ...

Re: Radiation Trait?

Is it worth mentioning that a military crew would likely suit up before going into battle, giving them a little extra radiation protection. Sure, if you did fire a particle canon at a liner the casualties would be horrific, but then, what reputable navy would fire weapons at civilian targets... Can ...

Re: Pirates of Drinax 2nd Ed: Typos, Errors, Bugs, Gremlins, Etc.

So, just to be clear,

It looks like we work in book order, so armour is before Stealth and therefore applies first.

So, reinforced, light and special hulls will adjust armour cost but rad shielding, Stealth, etc do not?

And of the options I listed above for the harrier, 5.76MCr is the right option?

Since you're here, could you clarify the inferred question above,

When calculating armour cost, which hull cost do we use?

Yeah, where can we get the errata? I'm not seeing one listed for either the CRB or a high Guard on the Mongoose product pages with other downloads.... There isn't one. That adjustment should have been in before the PDF was released, not sure what happened. That's a relief, thanks Andrew. Though I g...

How much cargo mass does all of this loot take up?

Cargo, vehicles and prisoners are pretty easy, but it'd be useful to know for the other items.

Crap - I didn't realise there was an errata...

I've been working from the physical book - is there an errata list somewhere?

Book one, p164

I don't know what's going on with the font in Kronds letter, but the character spacing and random boldface characters makes it very difficult to read, maybe a change of font is in order?

Re: CSC: Electronics Suite cost?

Actually on this note I have a query,

If I buy an Armour item with a TL of, say, 10 from a TL 12 world, will it have the better electronics suite?

(just because the armour tops out at a TL doesn't mean that it is necessarily obsolete)
