  1. Secrets of Los Angeles - Missing map

    It's what I'm suspecting too, but I'm an optimist and hope it was simply left out due to space constraint and is sitting somewhere in a hard drive...otherwise I'll need to figure out where those 300A to 300G (IIRC) goes.
  2. I know I'm a bit behind but I recently bought Secrets of Los Angeles, which I enjoy a lot. In Chapter 5, they refer to a map for the San Fernando Valley...which is not in the book. That's a bit of a bummer and I was wondering if this missing map had been added to the PDF or if it could be found somewhere else (net, blog, other book)? Any help would be appreciated.
  3. cost of expedition and split of treasures

    You are looking at a fair amount of equipment: tents, camp bed with blankets/sleeping bag, mosquito net, oil lamps and lamp oil, camping stove and fuel, food, water, TP, firearms, ammo, medicine (like quinine for malaria, morphine for pain and injury, etc.), appropriate clothing and footwear, mounts, proper documentation (passport, Visa, health cards, letter of introduction, etc.) and I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff...you're looking at a few hundreds, maybe even low thousands of dollars worth.
  4. Great bundles. Sadly I own them all
  5. Any idea when Khan of Khans gets delivered?

    Canadian copies are appearing to arrive. I live in Gatineau (Québec) just North of Ottawa (Ontario) in Eastern Canada and my copy arrived today.
  6. Reign of Terror - Corrections Thread

    Having finished the reading of the adventure, that's definitely something I'll be using with HotOE and as a Stand-Alone setting (annexes 3 and 4 are really helpful here). Once the book is out on print, I'm getting it...as it is the first time I get the PDF of a book before the print is done, I'm not too sure about the usual timing, but is it normal that I have not received the discount code yet? I realize you might be sending it only once, or around the time, the printed books are available.

    Page 95 first column: Louis-Julien-Simon Héron should be François Louis Julien Simon Héron Page 97, 1st column (5 October): Versaille needs to be corrected to Versailles Page 99, Caption of the picture: Hotel de Ville should be corrected to Hôtel de Ville Page 100: Although it was used in earlier text Fervidor had not been retained by Fabre himself (the man who created the name of the month) and was officially replaced by Thermidor. Maybe remove it as it never saw use beyond the inital reading to the Convention. " Page 104 under NOBLE: the 1st sentence "The nobility can be divided into the nobles d’epee and the nobles d’ robe,[...]" needs to be corrected to "The nobility can be divided into the noblesse d’épée and the noblesse de robe,[...]" page 105 under Social class: sans culottes needs to be hyphenated sans-culottes, page 110, (and in the credit) la Malade Imaginaire ( The Imaginary Invalid (Female only)) may need to be change either Le Malade Imaginaire (The Imaginary Invalid (male or in general)) or La Maladie Imaginaire (The Imaginary Disease/Sickness). page 110: Truffldino needs to be corrected to Truffaldino Page 110 Agustin is a spanish Name. The French equivalent is Augustin. Page 111under Shell Game: Philp should be either Philip (If he's an Englishman), Philippe (If he's a Frenchman), or Felipe (If he's a Spaniard). The last 2 are more likely as Saint-Domingue is French but is right next to Dominican Republic which is spanish. page 111, under Highly collectible: sans-cullotte should be corrected to sans-culotte (without the extra 'l') page 112, under Fear of the Dark: Jaques should be corrected to Jacques

    Page 67, 2nd column, last paragraph: Champs de Mars needs to be corrected to Champ-de-Mars Same paragraph: Revolution might be corrected to Révolution, but it could be taken as either a descriptor of the event or the propername of the Event in this context. The same could apply to the last words the Grand Terror. which could be changed to La Grande Terreur. Pages 69, 70, 75, 76, 78, 80, 82, 83, 127, Louis Héron, this name is problematic as François Louis Julien Simon Héron was knowns as François Héron or simply Héron Page 70, 2nd column, 2nd paragraph: Ancien Regime needs to be corrected to Ancien Régime Page 70, 2nd column, last paragrag: Certificate de civisme needs to be corrected to certificat de civisme (no -e at the end and not capitalized in French) Page 70, 3rd column, 1st paragraph: "Robespierre n’a qu’un seul point faible: sa police, sa police secrete, détéstee par tout de monde." should be corrected to "Robespierre n’a qu’un seul point faible: sa police, sa police secrète, détestée par tout de monde." page 70, 3rd column, 2nd paragraph cafes needs to be corrected to cafés Page 70, 3rd paragraph: Quentin Fouquier-Tinville, this name is also a bit problematic as it was never used historically. Antoine Quentin Fouquier de Tinville was also known as Antoine Fouquier-Tinville which would be the proper form to use. page 71, 2nd column, last paragraph: á la guiloitine! needs to be corrected to "À la guillotine!" Same paragraph: Place de la Revolution. needs to be corrected to Place de la Révolution. The same correction needs to be done on page 71, 3rd column. Page 76 1st column Antoine Quentin Fouquier-Tinville should be corrected to either Antoine Quentin Fouquier de Tinville or Antoine Fouquier-Tinville Page 76 2nd arondissement. should be corrected to 2nd arrondissement or 2e arrondissement if you wish ot use French abreviation. Page 77, boxed text Duchess d’Orleans should be corrected to Duchess d'Orléans or Duchesse d'Orléans if you wish to use the French spelling of the title. Page 80, right column, 1st paragraph: to keep the French flavor Paris Bourse could be changed to Bourse de Paris Page 86, right column. The 1D10 Sanity points for killing Fenalik.reward seems a bit odd as he wasn't involved in the second part. I've amended my first port to indicate the pages where Notre-Dame needs to be Hyphenated Edit: It's a great Scenario and I really like it. It may same like I'm nitpicking on the French, but as I mention back on the Yog-Sothoth forum, I'm a French as Second Language Teacher with 13 years experience, I'm quite aware of how hard and crazy my mother tongue can be to learn and use.

    Page 26, Versailles 1789: Third column, last paragraph "[...] This event ends the King’s independence and symbolizes the end of the ancien regime. [...]" Ancien Régime needs to be capitalized (and the accent added). Page 29. the title for Mademoiselle De Brienne (or Mlle De Brienne) is a bit problematic as it is used for young girl or (presumed) unmarried woman...and De Brienne is married. She should technically be referred as Madame de Brienne (or Mme De Brienne). Also, In French, aside for the abreviation for Monsieur (or M.) and Messieurs (MM.), we never put a period after it (unless we are ending a sentence). @Pyth That is indeed an interesting resource and did not know that Mélodie was only recently introduced in French, but even if historically inaccurate, it doesn't change much to the story, I'm really looking at it more from a proofreading/spelling Point of View

    On page 14 and 15 (as well as on pages 19, 29, 31, 60, 64, 77, 123, 126, 127 and the separate pre-generated character file on page 4); Comte Benoit and Melodie Benoit should be corrected to Comte Benoît and Mélodie Benoît Maps on pages 18, 61, 118, 119 and in the separate players Handout pages 5 and 6. - On the Maps: FAUBORG DU TEMPLE should be FAUBOURG DU TEMPLE - In the Legends: Notre-Dame and Champ-des-Mars needs to be hyphenated On page 27 in the legend Place Duaphine needs to be corrected to Place Dauphine On page 51 in both legends: Champ-des-Mars needs to be hyphenated On page 68 (under Rigault’s Room), page 69 (under Getting In) and on the map on page 69, Rue Neuve Saint-Augustin needs to be Hyphenated. On page 97 Champ-des-Mars needs to be hyphenated On page 111 Cedric Bethe should read Cédric Bethe In the credit page and on page 112 The title should be THE LABORATORY OF ANTOINE LAVOISIER. The name also need to be corrected in the 1st paragraph (misspelt Laviosier) and starting on the 3rd paragraph onward (misspelt Lavosier ).

    Page 58, 63. Maps on pages 18, 61, 118, 119 and in the separate players Handout pages 5 and 6. "Notre-Dame" needs to be hyphenated. --------- Page 11 - • Hugel, a resourceful provisioner (vivandièr). Minor typo to be corrected here: The masculin form should be Vivandier (no accent), but the feminine form Vivandière takes an accent. This typo also need to be corrected on page 120. On page 125, at the top, the feminine form could be kept as the character is a woman posing as her husband. However, Under Special: it should read "[...]. Joseph was a vivandier, a serving soldier [...]" as it refers to the husband. The page 120 and page 125 corrections, need to be done on the seperate (and free) pre-generated investigator file.
