As part of “coming up for air,” I hope to be fixing/adding a few things to the site, and to my business processes. One of those things is a new method of submitting errors found in all my books. There are over a dozen now, and more on the way, so keeping track of everything is a challenge. There are so many lines of possible communication – Kickstarter messages, Facebook and Facebook messenger, Discord, email, and more (and I’ve received feedback from all of these) that it’s too easy to lose track. And too easy to have them deleted or missed.
So…here we go.
Check out the new page on the menu bar:
Once you click the Errata link, you’ll be taken to a submission page. Only one entry per submission, and you’ll need to choose the product (I’ll update the list as new products come out), provide a contact email, and a few other things.
It is very, very helpful if you give me enough information to easily find the thing you want changed.
There’s only so much I can do. If your suggestion is to replace “Maui” with “Maui, Shapeshifter, Demigod of the Wind and Sea, Hero of Men and Women,” well, that might not fit. Or it might. But it’s not really an error.
“There’s no such thing as a Technique in the Dungeon Fantasy RPG” is a rules-related error.
“Immunity isn’t a thing in GURPS!” is true in the Basic Set, but if you look up Immunity in the Dungeon Fantasy Monsters book, you’ll find it right there on p. 11: “Immunity: Monster cannot be affected at all by the indicated threat – e.g., disease, mind control, or poison – regardless of cause or means of delivery. As it needn’t defend against or resist such things, they don’t even count as distractions!”
I mention this because my publishing to date for Steve Jackson Games’ products is confined to The Dungeon Fantasy RPG and The Fantasy Trip. So if you’re correcting rules usage, please ensure you’re using the correct the source material.
I hope this works out better for everyone. It’s got the advantage of all being in one place for everyone. It gives me the most easily searchable format. And hopefully means that I can do things more efficiently across all my product lines. It also means that I should be able to compile easy “from–>to” errata sheets over time.
We’ll see! I hope it’s useful to you. I know it will be useful to me…if it’s used.
