When a Chaosium staffer, or a freelancer, is devoured by a plague of angry stoats you will know the terrible price for igniting the ire of The Bringer of Stoats! For you have brought mustelid doom upon yourselves!!! >:>

There was a list of additions to the credits page that were not put in by the layout guy at the last hour.

If it's any consolation, the authors of the Fey Magic of The Southern Reaches chapter didn't get credited either.
Please note I do not actually work for Chaosium; I just do the occasional freelance editing work for them.

Sir, you do not require a mantle of protection from stoats, for you are blessed by the Bringer of Stoats, and need not fear their furry little fury! ;D

I know it wasn't as much of a contribution as some of the people that added ideas on such things as arete, but it would have been nice to be mentioned. Thanks for the appreciation. Skunkape. B-)

Expect the sinisterly soft patter of stoaty feet in your area until all who have contributed are credited! And I noticed a spelling error in Fey Magic of The Southern Reaches (under the title "Call(Followers)" on page 119 the sentence "No worlds or thoughts.." should be "No words or thoughts..") which shows that my stoaty Search skill was not applied to that section of the book! >:>

So, the proofreading omission was entirely valid, then. Next time get it right! :)

Just checked to see that there are no errors in this post. :7

You're telling me to get it right next time, when I didn't even proofread the section I was showing had errata in the finished product. In fact that was the reason why it had errata in it; because I hadn't proofread that section, because I was never sent it. ;)
