5.2 update (Character Sheets)

Recommended Posts

Hey there! 

This really doesn't involve the character sheet, but I was looking at the Players Map included in the 5.2 file. 

Regarding Rheged... Its spelled Rhegep on the map; or is that supposed to be a Thorn, that was simply edited wrong (I have seen the kingdom spelled Rhegeþ)?

I am 99.9% convinced it is a typo, since on the south coast, we have the opposite typo: Pevensey is typoed as Devensey. I wonder if the labels were hand-written by Greg, and whoever made the labels in the map, mistook one D as P and another P as D. I mean, it all depends where the arc ends...

In the Nocturnal Forums, jmberry made this guess: "A minor change I just noticed is that Sir Jaradan (from the Salisbury section) has had his name changed to Sir Jarren. Given that Jaradan is supposed to be a Marshall in 531, I can understand the change to them being different characters (Jaradan would have had to be at least 67 in 531 otherwise)."

Alas, given the flavor text, my personal belief is that 'Jarren' should be renamed to 'Jaradan'.

This is something we'll be clarifying in future publications, but it reflects some changes Greg was in the midst of making to the chronology of Salisbury. For the time being, you can do as Morien suggests and simply treat Jarren and Jaradan as interchangeable.

Ah, the best swordsman in the county is always such a hit in the games I've run though. It would be a shame for him to get moved out of that early period and the Anarchy when the players can use an ally in the best swordsman in the county. On the mention of the label typos earlier in the topic, was that a typo or an intentional change? I think they would be typos since Rheged and Pevensey are the names of the ancient kingdom and modern city respectively. However,  I know there was a major push for more archaic spelling.
