Robyn is in the hode!

Unfortunately I have an academic paper to write so I'm off gaming-related reading until September! Perversely I am less busy during semester than in summer ...  :huh:

It's a small, tiny mention, but the notes re: John Barleycorn and others made me smile. And hum ..

"... and these three men made a solemn vow: John Barleycorn must die."

Do you want to start an errata thread ? I've already seen 2 :

- p.11 language table: any French shall speak any Occitan with a penalty (not a consequence)

- p. 35, Corn Dollies: a page reference is missing "see also p.xx"

Thanks.

Is Occitan so close to French as to only have a consequence? I thought it was a bit further removed than that.

I hate page references in RPG books. I much prefer referring to sections or chapters.

no, you're right, a penalty is better, but the chart says "one Consequence". (even if the text below says "Penalty")

ok, I won't mention pages anymore, I only thought it would help. But I mentioned the sections as well.

 

"Diseases and Illness" -> "Wounds & Infection": the last sentence is cut.

We changed from Penalties to Consequences halfway through, as Penalties seemed too harsh. Obviously I didn't change it everywhere.

The French line in the table should have a Penalty for Occitan.

Please mention them. If they have Page xx then they are clearly wrong and we have missed them. 

When writing them, I use a word processor without illustrations and page numbers will not match the final document, which is why I normally don't use Page xx. I think this might have been introduced in an editing phase and wasn't caught in the proofreading.

Probably best to remove ", and even if the", as I cannot remember what I was going to put there. My document has the half sentence. I probably meant to have a Consequence or Penalty to the wound, but that might be overkill.

I picked up a hard copy of Robyn Hode at UKGE and wondered about getting a pdf as well but there is no sticker with two values to enter on the Get a PDF page at the Alephtar site so is one included with the hard copy and if so how can I acquire it ?
