In the Power Level Table, when discussing Packages, the rules omit to the
information on the number of Training Packages received. It should have listed
them as "Everyday 1/2/3", "Exceptional 1/2/5" and "Elite 1/2/5". The first number
is the number of Origins Packages the character receives, the second is the number
of Background Packages the character receives, and the third is the number of
*points* the character receives with which to purchase Professional Packages.
In the section on Training Packages, there is no mention made of the number of
Professional Packages that are given at each Power Level. It should read that
Everyday characters get 3 points worth of points, and Exceptional and and Elite
characters get 5 points worth of points with which to purchase Professional Packages.
In the section on Characer Creation/Background Packages, under Independent
skills, the section says "Culture 2". This should have been clarified to mean that the
two points are applied to whichever Culture is most appropriate for the character.
In the section on spending Character Improvement Points, there is no mention
made of how many points it costs a character to gain a new Skill. The cost should be
listed as 1 Character Improvement Point to acquire Level 1. Progress from that point
forward is as per normal.
In the section on Weight, it is stated that Poseidon has a "slightly higher gravity"
than that of Earth. However, in the Serpentis System Information Table on page 10
of the Moderator's Guide, it is stated that Posiedon's gravity is 0.98 g. In actual fact,
the information on page 10 of the Moderator's Guide should read that the gravity on
Poseidon is approximately 1.08 g.
In the entry for Critical Wounds, the text reads," If the player fails the (trauma)
roll by less than five, the character is dying from shock and trauma. If the character
does not receive successful first aid within a number of minutes equal to (10 + the
action value of the trauma roll, ignoring the negative sign) the character will die. This
is in error. Do not ignore the negative sign. Note: Otherwise, this would
result in a character who is more seriously injured staying alive longer than one who
The damage that Unarmed Combat attacks do is not mentioned. Somewhere
here the text should read, "Unarmed attacks have a Damage Rating of Strength + 1.
An unarmed kicking attack has a Damage Rating of Strength + 2 with a -1 penalty
on the attack roll. Kicking someone is a more difficult attack, but will do more damage
and is treated similarly to a called shot."
In the section on Anti-Shock, the reference for the Trauma roll should read "(page
117)" instead of "(page 134)".
The entry on the cost of cybereyes is in error. The cost for cybereyes should be
changed from "13,000cs/eye" to "1,300cs/eye."
The first full paragraph of the Sidebar refers to characters having to reduce several
of their attributes by "one level for every three months spent in the cooler". This should
be changed to "...reduced by -1 for every three months spent in the cooler".
The Post-IHMS Condition Table makes references to reducing various Attributes
and the like by "one level". The references to "one level" should be changed to read
In the first column of the Timeline on this page there is an error. The date of "2169"
should appear next to the paragraph that begins, "The United States begins withdrawing
its...". The colonists on Poseidon began shuttling stuff down to the surface within a
couple of weeks of their arrival.
While it appears that the Aptitudes are missing for all of the NPCs, this is not quite
true. This material was deliberately left out of the NPC descriptions so that GMs could
determine the Aptitudes for the NPCs in accordance with their own specific needs (such
as the Power Level of the campaign, the importance of the NPC for the story and so forth).
However, for those Game Moderators who desperately want this information, I have
compiled my own version of this, so you
can follow the link here.
In the Serpentis System Information Table, it states that Poseidon's gravity is
0.98 g, whereas the information on Weight on page 81 of the Player's Guide states
that Poseidon has a "slightly higher gravity" than that of Earth. The information on
this page should read that Poseidon's gravity is something around 1.08 G.
Circumstance is incorrectly located on the map. Page 38 lists it's correct latitude
and longitude, placing it correctly at around 200 kilometres east of Southward Island.
In the seventh paragraph, Triton Island briefly becomes "Trident Island" before
returning back to its normal, real name later in the paragraph.
In the section on Government, Jacob Stone is said to be a Captain, but later
in the same paragraph he's referred to as a Colonel. This needs to be clarified.
Al-Mamlakah is listed on this page as having 33,000 residents, but on page
89 is listed as having 28,000 residents.
