RuneQuest Bestiary Corrections Thread - PDF 11 Oct 2018

Recommended Posts

Today we have released an updated PDF of the RuneQuest Core Rules, the RuneQuest Bestiary, and the Adventures Book and Resources Book from the Gamemaster Screen Pack. This incorporates any corrections made based on the previous "tribal edit" thread.

These updated PDFs are available to download from your Chaosium account or your DTRPG account.

This is a new thread to catch any typos or errors spotted in the RuneQuest Bestiary. Please note them here, quoting the page number, the error, and the suggested correction.

PLEASE ONLY USE THE PDF OF 11 OCTOBER 2018 AS THE REVIEW DOCUMENT

There are separate correction threads for the updated PDFs of the RQG Core Rules and GM Screen Pack.

Any approved corrections will go into subsequent updates of the PDFs and printing of the books.

nb If you have any general questions about the RuneQuest rules, ask Jason here: https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/8399-runequest-core-rules-questions

Many thanks.

The ISBN shown on the copyright page is 9781568825021, which is the ISBN for the core rulebook. Looks as though this should be updated to 978-1-56882-503-8 to match the back cover.

Centaur hit points per location differ from the chart on page 10.

Page 10: /4 /4 /6 /6 /4 /4 /6 /4 /4 /6

Page 31: /6 /6 /9 /9 /6 /6 /9 /6 /6 /7

Head hit points on p31 are 7 instead of 9.

Manticore hit points per location differ from the chart on page 10.

Page 10 lists them along with dragons, having wings. Page 34 does not list wing locations, so I assume page 10 is incorrect and the do not have wings.

Credit to @jongjom for spotting it and posting it in the original Bestiary corrections thread, I'm currently going through that re-flagging things that are clearly wrong but didn't get fixed.

Baboons have inconsistent HP per location compared to the chart on Page 10, assuming they use Humanoid, if not then they do not match any of the charts and so should have their own added, or a note on page 29 saying that this chart is specific to them.

Page 10 says /5 /5 /5 /6 /4 /4 /5 for 13-15 HP

Page 29 says /3 /3 /5 /5 /3 /3 /4 for 11 HP

It's the Magic Points that is wrong, should be 3-14 (average of 1D6 is 3-4)

Normally it's small cap darkness elemental, except: 

Page 178 [Boxed section] Most have a darkness elemental body. 

Page 197 combination darkness elemental/dryad, with all the abilities of both.

Similarly for earth elemental: 

Page 57 They summon and control those useful creatures, earth elementals.

Page 172 The sprul-pa are not undead and are more akin to earth elementals. 

Page 180 More powerful and sentient earth elementals are the

Page 197 Ghost Attitude and POW (table)

Move 'POW' so it aligns with the numbers beneath. May be also move across the second D100 column to the right to make things more obvious. 

Page 198

Insanity; ...is cured either by Cure Disease skill or Cure All Disease spell,....

Do you mean:

Insanity; ...is cured either by Cure Disease ability or Cure All Disease spell,.... (As per the Shamanic ability on page 360 of the Core rules)

Or

Insanity; ...is cured either by Treat Disease skill or Cure All Disease spell,.... (as page 182 of the Core rules)

I might be missing something here. 

195+200=395, averaged is 197.5, which rounds up to 198. 

200+205=405, averaged is 202.5, which rounds up to 203. 

Are you objecting to the rounding up of fractions? Or picking an average value within the range?
