What is Errata?

Post  Admin on Wed Jul 18, 2012 5:08 pm

[While we're still in development, new abilities, races, etc. may be added to the core rulebook. Until we hit version 1.0, sudden changes may occur to the rules. It would be nice if these were documented in the errata or on the core rulebook thread, though. ~Andrew]

There's a major difference between errata and new material. Errata is like this:
Errata: Lowered Utility Talent "The Stare" from +20 bonus to +10. (Not that we're not doing that! Shocked)

New Material is like this:
Added new Combat Talent, [+2] Tackle
Deal d4 damage.
(Not that this is a real ability!  Shocked )

In other words, Errata changes something that already existed. New Material adds some new ability, race, etc.
Naturally, new material should go into Expansions rather than here in Errata.
It's up to the player to be up to date with the most recent Errata. Of course, if your Ponyhandler is willing to use a pre-Errata ability, race, etc., that's their call.

So do we want a new thread for the actual errata, or how does this work? I'll just post the one I'm familiar with (because I was sorta responsible for it):
Errata: Healing Salve effects from 1d10 HP restored to 1d10+3.

I was thinking maybe make a thread for Traits, a thread for Races, a thread for Monsters, etc.
But whatever floats your boat. Smile

This is a great idea. Different threads for Monsters, Utility Talents, Combat Talents, Traits, Races and miscellaneous. Sound good AlicornPriest?

Wouldn't it be easier and less confusing to just log the changes, like so?

"Changed 'Wasp Invasion' attack from doing X+10million damage to X+10 flamingo type damage"

Because you'll be changing to core manuals all the time and it'd be somewhat silly not to just to force people to go look at the erratas to see what the actual working rules now were.

If so then it might be less confusing to have the errata threads be by book rather than subject (afterall, who's to say someone won't end up errataing their expansion book).

*laughs* That's kind of what I thought was meant - must have been reading too quickly. Yes, I agree with that.

Actually, let's go with what Ramsus was saying. Log changes by Source Book. It sounds much easier.

Why not both? They both have advantages.

Well, it would be kind of a pain if we have to make the updates in the source books and then post the changes to two different threads.

Oh, picky picky! I suppose next you'll insist that we don't give out racial combat abilities.
