  1. 9/12 is just what I have derived myself. I imported pages from their new books into InDesign and when overlaying text on top, 9/12 was the setting that made it work :)
  2. I've been reading an old scenario that mentions asking for a Linguist skill roll to determine if someone's accent is fake, and later, which region someone's accent is from. As Linguist is no longer a skill, what roll should I ask for? The best I can come up with is EDU but a straight roll seems a little too easy considering that the old Linguist skill had a base chance of 0%. Determining a region seems like it would be pretty difficult. Would an Extreme EDU roll be suitable or is that too much? For an average Investigator, that would be 13%. Does anyone have any thoughts?
  3. If you're looking for what's actually used in Chaosium's books, it's 9pt Adobe Caslon Pro (with 12pt Leading).
  4. Someone pointed out to me today that the Cthulhu Dark Ages pre-gens are well beyond the rules for character creation. Has anyone else noticed this? The core characteristics are all well above average, which is no big deal as that could be rolled, but the skill points are off the chart. I picked one at random (the Healer) and worked out that they've allocated 898 points, despite only having 360 available between occupation and personal interest. I've never used pre-gens myself, so I'm just curious if this is normal?
  5. I was just comparing the old and new Unspeakable Possessors/Adherents of the Unspeakable Oath, and noticed two big differences that may have been overlooked (or may have been intentional). The first is that the creature drains hit-points when it feeds, which it then absorbs into its own STR and SIZ. I feel this should now be x5, because dividing an average of 5 points among the two stats is pretty trivial otherwise. This leads into a similar issue, which is the damage the creature takes once the sun rises. It was previously 1D20 from STR and SIZ, which meant it could potentially die in a day o
  6. More of a question than an error per se, but are the Spawn of Abhoth (pg.32) meant to have 100% attack chance? It seems unusual for a creature that is meant to flop and flounder about. The only other monster in Volume 1 that has 100% is the Black Dogs (pg.172).
  7. On pg.43, in the G'harne box, the first sentence ends with, "...and their god Shudde-M’ell,." A comma has snuck in there before the full stop. In the same box, there is a line that reads, "...lead down into the city, which while entombed is still partially navigable." While I'm not 100% up on my punctuation rules, I believe there should be commas on each side of "while entombed", so that it reads, "...lead down into the city, which, while entombed, is still partially navigable." Further down, a line reads, "...and are devoted the god that lives below them." This needs a "to" before "
  8. Not sure if it's an error or just a change, but a Gnoph-Keh (pg.73 in the new book) used to be able to perform one horn-gore and up to four claw attacks (see pg.44 of the old Malleus), but it now says five claws or one horn-gore.
  9. On pg.145, the Greater Size Brood of Ubbo-Sathla STR average should be 195 instead of 190. On pg.157, in the "Advanced Weapons from Yaddith" box, it says "Tune Pistol", whereas it should be "Tube Pistol". Just saw that one was already posted
  10. Before continuing on with checking any stats, I thought I'd double-check for any rolls with parentheses that shouldn't... Pg.57, Lesser Desh CON and SIZ Pg.92, Lloigor POW (also CON and SIZ, though they appear intentional) Pg.111, Rat-Thing CON and POW (as I mentioned above) Pg.122, Shoggoth Lord (True Form) DEX (as mentioned above) Pg.188, Bobcat/Lynx STR Pg.189, Dog STR and POW Pg.189, Jackal STR and SIZ Pg.190, Cats STR and CON Pg.200, Snapping Turtle (both types) DEX and POW And also added spaces: Pg.61, Dwellers in the Depths
  11. It does seem unusual that a monster would have such high APP, especially considering what it ends up looking like.
  12. On pg.90, the CON roll of the L'gy'hx is missing a right parenthesis. On pg.93, the average Lurker INT should be 70-75 instead of 65-70. On pg.95, the INT average of the Mi-Go Scientist should be 120 instead of 110-115, and the POW roll is missing a left parenthesis. On pg.111, the CON and POW rolls of the Rat-Thing are in parentheses despite having no modifiers. On pg.122, the DEX roll for Shoggoth Lords True Form are also in parentheses despite having no modifier. (Got to the end of the "S" chapter this time around. Hopefully I'll be able to finish them off before th
  13. On pg.39, the SIZ of the Lesser Brothers should say 85-90 average rather than 85-95. There's something amiss with the Greater Brother rolls on pg.40. The averages imply that the 5D6 and 2D6 rolls are being multiplied by 5, whereas this is not shown in the rolls themselves, or in the explanatory paragraph above. On p.41, the Chthonian Lifecycle 3rd Instar average should be 145 rather than 150. On pg.55, the average DEX of the Dolphin Hybrid should simply be 95. On pg.57, the average CON for the Greater Desh should be 50 instead of 65. On pg.59, the average SIZ of the Dh
  14. Many do, such as Deep Ones, so it makes sense to have that in the creation options.
  15. On pg.195 of the Deities volume, in the Lady of the Woods entry, the power Command says, “when directly spoken to, humans to fall under the command of the Lady.” The second “to” (bold) seems to need deleting.
