Has anyone already compiled errata on the Gionetti Yacht? There’s several items, but I don’t want to reinvent the wheel.
All I had sent in was my standard objection to the "Standard, Reinforced Hull" as a foolish design option, but I never dug into the specifics of the design, figuring it was based on whatever issues had existed since HighGuard.

Hi,
I suspect the answer is yes but with the virus situation can we take it that delivery of the hardcopies of Behind the Claw are likely to be delayed?

As yet, no delays, but we will keep you updated. Mail orders are still going out of our North American warehouse promptly, and I am going into the office twice a week to sort out orders to the rest of the world.

Behind the Claw is currently scheduled to arrive in the US around May 19th, and will start shipping a week or so after that, all going well.

As I say, I will keep you up to speed if anything changes, but we are hoping to get a few books off to print during this period (the Drinaxian Companion and two new adventures will be first, and work continues without delay on the Deepnight Revelation project).

Thanks very much for the update, I assume UK pre orders will be similar?

Good news - but if things do have to change given current circumstances, don't worry, we're all in the same boat.

Did the shipment of Behind the Claw Hard physical Copies in the US.. get put on hold due to social distancing...
I never received my copy .. so just checking if it got "corona" delayed.. or if there was a lost shipment.

Just checking..

Having recently bought this to read whilst not working all that much I am pretty impressed.

However I have noticed an issue on the Sword Worlds subsector map in the book. Mithril is shown as A-C on the map, rather than E-0 (the UWP underneath is correct)

Found a error in the Behind the Claw PDF

Page 46.
Armis subsector Feneteman and Armis UWP data has a "He" trade code
There is no He trade code in the books. Should probably be "Ht"

All rule reference is to 2nd edition, if not otherwise mentioned.

He means Hellworld.

Both Feneteman and Aramis show as hellworlds on travellermap.

Hellworlds are mentioned in passing in the Companion, but I agree neither the core rules or the companion mentions He as a "trade code"

So did the ship carrying the Behind the Claw hardcopies find safe harbor in the last few days.. or is it
going to be one of those flying dutchmen ships stuck at sea with NO safe harbor in this pandemic...

I understand that COVID19 could cause a delay, just curious as to what is happening right now...

Was there ever an update to the PDF maps? The January 16th ones were the same as the originals and needed some fixing.

Let me look into that (please bear with us, this is just the kind of thing that gets tougher while we are all working from home!).

Deneb has been pretty much completely re-written
Based on the text changes I've seen so far, I might use some of the art. Not that Nenlat, though. He's too fat.
