Hey guys,

Sorry about the lack of posts on this thread - after I finished the last of the sculpts, I've not been back to update it (since they are all done!)

We've been very busy laying out and editing the book, and we've had a couple of our customers with a critical eye helping to catch all of our mistakes. We're at about 85% completion of the text and layout, so it should not be too much longer.

We are getting very close to completion. Page count has now reached 314 pages, and I hope to be able to share a 'beta' draft for players very soon. Please bear with us a little longer.

We have a Kickstarter update going up tomorrow as well, with the much-requested rules for the Amazon Cavalry.

Not wanting to give too much away but The restrictions on page 242 contradict the restrictions on pages 245, 246 and 247

sorry to those that have not yet seen the preview

Hazpak, can you be more specific? I don't see the contradiction, but if something is incorrect, or unclear, let me know and I'll correct it.

On page 242, the Titan Slaves entry it is written a unit of Slaves allowed you to get 2 masters or a single monster option. On the monster entries it is written a monster unit may be chosen in place of a Titan Master.

So, does a Slave unit allow you two monster Units, or one Slave and one monster Unit? Or either 1-2 Masters or one monster unit?

If I have revealed too much, please delete the post.

Ok, thanks. So lets change the Slaves' "Restriction" text to:

Restrictions A Titan Warband may purchase as many units of Titan Slaves as the player desires. Each unit of Slaves allows the warband to include 2 Titan Masters or monster options (Harpies, Spawn of Chimera, or a Hydra).

small spelling issue with the rulebook.... reading the gifts of hades on page 94 (11 of the pdf) specifically power 2 titan slayer, you have written monotaurs as opposed minotaurs

In the Gifts of Hermes section on page 106, it says '10. Weapon of the Gods: Winged Sandals' - presumably this should say 'Gift of the Gods' as it does in the corresponding entry for all of the other Gods.

not sure if this is intended or not... the war witch and crones are listed as having light armour (ar3) and the description says light armour (heavy robes) heavy robes in Ægyptus counting as medium armour /ar4

Assuming this isn't a typo as it's a bit contradictory to other instances of armour, can we possibly change the name to something new for consistancy perhaps?

I think they've used the term light armour to make it clear that it isn't metal armour, i think we could leave it just saying Heave Robes (AR3)

Just working through my warband for Cancon and came across a couple of minor errors in the beta draft

In the Gifts of Hephaestus section on page 101 under Dwarfism
It reads"...adds 1 point to his Disciple Rating..."
I'm assuming its meant to be to his Discipline Rating

Under Warband Creation, Allied City-States, pg 118, Amazons
It reads "An Amazon warband will never in include..."
The extra in should be removed

Got them, thanks!

I'm working on clearing up the Amazon crone armor, as you guys suggested, the 'heavy robes' was meant as an indication that it was non-metal armor, not really a classification itself.

elpasopete, Xerxes is something of a problem character, as he was created for our Wrath of the Titans book that was planned for 2008, but we were never able to publish it. Xerxes would require several pages of text for his background and powers, and I'm not sure we can fit him into the book (as the page count is now over 330!)

Also notices on the same page as above in the first paragraph for the babylon, empire of the god kings it says The region teems with wildlife and the soil pro- vides rich harvests for its people, so it is no wonder that many their cities are older than men

Should read The region teems with wildlife and the soil pro- vides rich harvests for its people, so it is no wonder that many of their cities are older than men

Preview 3 issues so far..

"page 23" 2nd paragraph last sentance given below is a profile of a human warrior armed with sword and shield

the profile then shows a spartan hoplite with a spear and shield and a damage modifier of 2 and an armor rating of 4 (hard 2) dm should be 1 armor rating with that equipment should only be 2 (hard 2) sentance above should read spear and shield not sword and shield

"page 23" paragraph 7 below is given the complete profile, including point value, of a spartan hoplite armed with sword and shield

the profile then shows equipment of just a spear and shield but shows an armor rating of 4 (hard 2) again with that equipment the save should read 2 (hard 2) the above sentance should read spea and shield not sword and shield.

"page 26" the shield entry profile reads damage modifier +2 (hard) it should read armor rating: +2 (hard)

Guys- Crock Games had a booth at Historicon last week. Chris said he plans to do final editing in the next two weeks and then send the file to the printers. He estimates two months for printing/binding/shipping to Indy.

thought you could use an update.

Something new- He said he may put together a compendium of the info in CrockTails. Scarab Ogres, Necropolid Guard, etc. But not until the Olympus book is published. He may do a smaller Kick Starter to pay for printing.

El Paso Pete

See you at Fall-In
