One thing to note about the preview files on Backerkit: the decision to share it with Glorantha Source Backers made it look like they are getting a copy of a GSB layout file, but that's not correct. Both the 4.6 megabyte files added to BackerKit now are the Chapter 3 layout from 13th Age in Glorantha. If you're a backer for both, you'll get the file twice.

True. When bug hunting, often finding one bug means you overlook those in proximity - a common psychological 'blindness' when reviewing material. This is one of the reasons no one reviewer ever catches everything.
