Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Huh. That's odd. They should be the same. The first one ("ED4-PF-PDF_10_March") is the filename format we used on the pre-release builds. I just checked, and that's the one from March 2015 -- the last one before we released the book. The other is the filename format we use for the actual "release" ...

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

What's the difference between the two players' guide pdfs on drivethru?

Are the core rule books (pdfs and hardcopies) going to have the errata updated in future?

Re: Fourth Edition Errata, Clarifications, and FAQs

Has anyone compiled the latest errata into a file?

Can we expect a second print run with updated errata? That would be cool

Re: Some Questions

This is brilliant Mataxes, thank you. "Going from Step 7 to Step 8 is weird. The odds of success on DN 12, for example, is only about 8.3% with Step 7, but 21.3% with Step 8 (a difference of about 13%)." To clarify, when you say it only happens one roll in hundreds with the margins (even if it happe...

Re: Some Questions

Understanding that I haven't really dug into the underlying probabilities, I think the difference is about the same. I know the basics of Savage Worlds, and they have a similar kind of stepped-die system with rerolls. This can do odd things with certain DNs depending on what you're rolling. So if t...

Re: Some Questions

To be honest, my eyes glazed over when I read your article Mataxes. Me and maths don't get on :) Is the discrepancy negligible, really not worth worrying over? Put it this way, do we know how Earthdawn's dice quirks compare with Savage Worlds' dice quirks? I'm not bothered those at all as they reall...

Re: Some Questions

Thank you for the feedback

Which would you say is the most problematic? For me, the dice step progression sounds it. It doesn’t break the game but is it a problem during play? Is it obvious?

Some Questions

Is there a problem with the sequential way difficulty numbers increase, are they a bit wonky in places? For those experienced with the system, are the rules about magical 'threads' and how they work with magic items contradictory in places? Did the new edition address the issue with not enough creat...
