 The book says characters can choose from the light freighter, bulk freighter or transport hull types, but you include the Firespray, which is a patrol boat hull type.  Am I missing something that allows them to choose that ship?

It's explicitly listed as one of the ships they can choose on page 68.

 Weird, that kind of contradicts what it says earlier in the character creation overview.

And I've updated again to include some info on opposed skills, all the week 3 updates and some minor corrections/clarifications.

I'll look to align updates with the weekly updates from now on - next week I plan to include some information for weapon mods on the types of weapons to which they can be applied.

Have we lost the table for spending advantages and threats etc in combat?  Or am I just going a bit old and blind?

Sorry, i found it at the back with the skills.  Could these tables be put back on one sheet and moved up to the combat section as I have found its one of the most referenced tables so far and having it with the skills will make it difficult to reference, my players call it a menu of doom.

And please can you add a couple of rows to the advantage and triumph table to state spend 1 or more advantage (or a single triumph) to score a critical hit or to activate a weapon quality.

Ok, I made this first change intentionally, because as a GM it was handy to have one two-pager with all the out of combat and in combat spending of threat and despair together, and it allowed me to have another two-pager with all the spending of advantage, triumph for in and out of combat to give to players. So before I go ahead and change it back, I'm keen to hear opinions on which format people would prefer (i.e.: separated by GM vs player, or "in combat" vs "out of combat")?

However, I'll add the critical hit/weapon quality rows to the table for next week's update.

Dude, OMG… I could kiss you for these reference sheets… these are awesome. :)

I would pay for these if these were for sell, and once the Crit Tables are up, this is like … amazing. These are top notch.

As a GM I use both the threat and dispair pages (when the players are rolling dice) and the advantage and triumph pages (everytime I am rolling dice on behalf of NPCs).

I my first session I printed your reference sheets twice, one for me, and one for my players.

Plus, even when it was their turn to chose advantages and triumph effects (or threat and dispair, as a matter of fact), I used to prompt them, sometimes reading or restating their choices, to help them learn, focus and speed the game.

Given this, is much more useful to me to have the information sorted with "combat" information together and "out of combat" information in another place (even if this artificial division is not strictly so, such as I might need to consult information regarding skills in a combat encounter, this way information is more manageble - there is a reason why this is organized like this in different chapters in the gamebook). And we can always print more copies of the reference sheet so everybody at the table is following this stuff.

Finally, I would like to compliment you for your work providing the most useful acessory distributed for this game yet. This alone is responsible for easing the barrier entry for my players, for me and, i am willing to bet, a lot more of us. 

Thanks for sharing.

I've finished and uploaded this weeks update:

https://dl.dropbox.c...ence-Sheets.pdf

Major changes:

  • All changes from week 4 update.
  • Added requirements/restrictions for weapon/armor upgrades.
  • Added Improvised Weapons.
  • Changed spending advantages/threat/etc charts back to the way they were - skills on one two pager, combat on a single page.

Would it be possible to put version numbers in these files when you post them? It is getting confusing which is which.

Can do. I actually have them all versioned (in the file name, not the actual sheets), which I can upload to dropbox. Putting the version in the actual file contents itself will only happen for future versions.

Excellent thanks. It is not so much an issue now but I could see it being a bit of a mess and confusing after a few months.

As requested, links to the historical versions (hopefully the URLs are self-explanatory…):

I don't seem to have kept a v1, and the current version is 6… when I do this weeks update I'll post links to the archived version and new version.
