CSC PDF p. 28 Personalised Image

Postby snrdg121408 » Thu May 11, 2017 4:27 am

Evening PDT all,

On CSC PDF p. 28/PDF 29 the table under Personalised Image the Modification column has the entry of "Additional Padding" versus Personalised Image.

I purchased a PDF copy of MGP40003e CSC which per the Contents page is identified as Traveller ©2016 Mongoose Publishing from the company's online products page on 1/23/2017. Here is a modified print screen of CSC p. 28/PDF p. 29.

Personalised Image: Using hardened enamels and pigments,
any armour can be artistically altered to reflect the
individuality of the Traveller, the military he belongs to, or
other affiliations.

Modification TL Kg Cost
Additional Padding 2 - Cr10

I have checked Mongoose Publishing's Downloads, RPG and eBook pages for errata without finding any mention of a change.

It customizes the surface of the armour, it doesn't appear to add additional protection.

Unless the enamel used is harder than the armour it's being applied to.

Or super slippery.

All of the tables for each modification has the entry of the Modification in the table. The table for "Personalised Image" has the entry of "Additional Padding" in the column my downloaded copy of the PDF from Mongoose Publishing's site.

I agree that the description for Personalised Image does nothing to add protection to the armor but does allow the individual to standout in the crowd. Of course too much personalization makes one a target.

Apparently the version on DriveThru is different from the version on the Mongoose store.

You really need version numbers on all digital documents.

That's why you have errata.

Morning PDT AnotherDilbert and Condottiere,

Looks like I'll have to purchase a DriveThruRPG copy of the CSC and compare them. In addition to the CSC I also purchased the High Guard Aslan and Referee's Briefing 4: Mercenary Forces eBooks from Mongoose Publishing's site, which appears to mean I'll have to pay more money to see if they are different too.

I have looked on Mongoose Publishing's site to find errata for their Traveller 2nd edition products and so far have only found the bits and pieces that are on the forum. At least in the first edition the products, at least some of the hard/soft cover books, had errata posted on the product's page.

If anyone knows of an official site or sites that has errata for the second editions would you please share the link with me?
