No.

Well... sort of.

The imprint and the adept take up the same "space" (in terms of dimension). The glowing presence swirls around outside it.

The imprint is the adept, astrally speaking, and there's an aura that extends beyond it's outline.

Just a minor thing I found: The Steely Stare talent isn't listed in the Table of Contents links in the PDF. Also, the Blood Share link goes to the wrong page: 131 instead of 132.

Edited to add:
Never mind, brain didn't work, see below. :)

Weird. My pdf reader (okular) didn't find that in my search of the doc. And somehow my eyes skated over it half a dozen times. I must've been more tired then I thought. :shock:

Not sure where to report errors in the new Companion book, but on a rapid look at the book, I found 2 errors.
First, in the titles page (p3), you have, right after the Swordmaster, a Fourteenth circle
Then, in the knacks section, you have 3 Durability knacks in the middle of the Thread Weaving knacks (p113-114)

That first error is probably a result of metadata having the wrong heading info. Thanks.

As for the knacks, they should be Thread Weaving knacks. They were originally developed as Durability knacks, but since Durability isn't technically a talent... we decided not to go there.

That was a late-ish change, so they got moved over without updating the relevant text.

Thanks for the catch.

Edit: I know in the past there as a google-spreadsheet where people could accumulate errors. This place is as good as any to post, but I'll see if something similar is being done for this preview.

I'll add it to the doc, but something I noticed when I was putting together my talents list was that the 10th Circle Swordmaster Talent is listed as "Defense". I imagine it's supposed to be "Defensive Stance", which is a Talent that simply screams Swordmaster.

We can't use "Defensive Stance" as a talent name, because there's a combat option with that name.

I'm at the day gig so I don't have my references handy to check, but I'm 99% sure it is supposed to be "Defense" as a legacy from a talent with that name in earlier editions.
