The two page piece of art with the title "The Catch" is right in the middle of the handouts section. I have a feeling that because someone removed the handouts they also removed this picture. The handouts are not part of the regular numbering scheme of the book, so I imagine that your book goes right from page 36 to 37, without having amy handout pages.

Does this mean we will have the original handouts included in the books as well as the fancy new ones?

The Keeper Screen seems to missing the Resistance Table?

The first edition of the screen didn't actually have it. I grabbed the wrong screen shot for the Kickstarter example, which used the 1988 screen by mistake.
