JTAS errata

Postby MonkeyX » Fri Apr 26, 2019 2:42 pm

Ok maybe a little quick but I’ve had a chance to quickly look through the PDF and thought it may be a good idea to help here with proofreading/errata. Anyway here’s the first:
Page 110: the break between the 3rd and 4th paragraph may end a line early, ending at “there is always someone” instead on “attract their attention” .

Cosmetic thing for me.

Page 118 - Light Patrol Vehicle - Table showing Equipment and Weapons. You have Comma's at the end of the Equipment items, but not at end of Weapons. On next page, you have no commas at end. Like I said, bot a biggy, just cosmetic.

Also some pages, 105 you show Credts with Comma's (Cr100,000) . On others you show no comma's - Page 118 just shows Cr 132 000. Should be consistent. Probably with a Comma.

Not sure this counts as errata technically, but can we get a serious set of bookmarks?

The adventure “embassy in arms” can be found on p.65, not 85.

The Assault Rocket Launcher looks like an amazing support weapon for zero-G combat! I’m interested to see if it uses Gun Combat or Heavy Weapon skill, and also if the impressively high auto rating is intended?

(It has twice the RoF compared to its 1st edition version. Could be intended, if it’s meant as a support weapon (zero-G machine gun) but it is higher than most other rifle-sized weapons... )

The Lozin are from the planet Suevanis. I can’t find the world on Traveller map.

Referenced in Original JTAS 19 and on the Traveller Wiki, but no sign as you state of the planet on the Map.

Remember that the Traveller map only lists the primary world/starport for a system. There is much more to a system than the one starport/planet combo.

JTAS 2 has many little errors (for example, why "2 additional airlocks" are listed in the Quiet Vigilance SDB stats -p. 88- ?), however the updated JTAS 1 gained a new Errata after revision:

JTAS 1, page 33

"The cities of Cocta and New Okayama, lying on opposite ends of Lake Okayama... " is now wrong. Cocta got moved close to New Okayama, on the same side of the lake.

I have two errata and a question about the Florian League article in JTAS 4:

Errata
Page 94: replace "Ad nauseum" with the correct "Ad nauseam".
Page 98: the map lacks mention of the I'Sred*Ni Protectorate in Araniopa subsector, and the Mal’Gnar Primarchic is located in Mal’Gnar Radiant subsector. It would be useful if the map had the names for the Florian Tria... *TETRAD* too (the planet Peopus in the Darklings Regions subsector seems important to me).

Question
Why no rules for aspiring Floriani travellers?

Several PDF readers do this. I'm on a Mac right now and the default Apple PDF reader (called Preview) can do it.

JTAS 6, page 2:
http://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Ognar_Subsector
It's "Ognar", not "Ogna".

And please send free previews/PDFs of all your future books to Geir Lanesskog for editing :wink: :lol: .

More Errata

JTAS 6, page 105:

Not checked all the stats yet, but something not right with the j-drive. A Jump Drive 3 with decreased fuel and stealth jump requires 80 tons and MCr180 (for 1000 tons of Incarnate-class Strike Destroyer)... Does this mean stealth jump "requires two Advantages" (HG, page 48)? OK, but I've read somewhere in the forum this is not the case anymore.
Who is right, Drinax's Harrier or GSbAG’s Incarnate?

P.S.
Please add "Bonded Superdense" in the Armour stat.
Bridge + Holographic Controls is MCr 6.25
6 Triple Turrets is MCr33 (it becomes MCr36 if you apply the High Tech advantages to the turrets themselves, not sure it's correct... ).

Stealth jump only requires one Advantage. Should have been updated in the book.

I (the author of that part) told them that months ago. (It was originally "Ogna", then it came up that that name was being used.) Glad to see someone else noticed. :)

Fortunately, they may be accepting revisions from me on a few points they wanted clarified; I am definitely including that errata if they accept my revisions.

Hopefully they’ll make a honest effort at cleaning up errata similar to what they did on the Traveller Companion (and unlike the rest of their books).

I've read the new version of The Arhiyao Clan in JTAS 3 and *loved* the solution to the 'Hkakh Dilemma' above :D . Now, the Errata:

p. 53: Hrasua, not Hrusua;
Uitasoayaw is (0840/Ranib), not (0810/Ranib).

p.56: Tsekho, not Tseyko.

p.57: Hrasua, not Hrusua;
Syoakh, not Syoukh;
"(Sauhkesi) even hunted with the Glorious Empire in the
palace gardens
". Glorious EMPEROR, maybe?

p.63: Tokolfeahr, not Tokohfealr.

p.64: Ehaealir, not Ehlaealir.
