Just a small one, but Page 57, under the Ratling's suggested advances, 'Eye of Vengeance' is spelled 'Eye of Vngeance"

 What is the starting psykers Psy rating?  Starting talents indicates a pool of points worth of starting powers but no indication of the starting rate.

 Okay, should be in Chapter II:

Shouldn't the Elysians receive Weapon Training (SP)?

Also The Vostroyans seem to get a lot of Talents…

 Most characters seem to be unable to communicate….perhaps all Regiments or Specialties should be given:

Linguistics: Low Gothic!

It doesn't say whether Storm Troopers get just Carapace, or Storm Trooper Carapace. I mean, yeah, logic, but it says Carapace Armour. And there isn't even a piece of equipment like that, since regular carapace is in pieces.

Thanks, I found it. :)   Still, since Psy Rating is a talent it should be listed in the talents list for the character…

page 70 talks of Table 3–20: Example Female Names, there is no Table 3-20.

 Under Creating a Comrade there is mention of Table 3-20 (female names) & 3-21 (demeanors).  There are 2 Table 3-19s now, which appears to handle both circumstances to some degree - names and demeanors.

Those names all look female to me.


My apologies to anyone I offend; FFG staff, playtesters, and forum users alike. 

 

Please check out my Dark Heresy to Only War conversion! You can find it on the main Only War forum. I'm always looking for more people to playtest it!

Storm Trooper - Page 60 (Call-out Box, Starting Skills):

The 'or' between Intimidate and Security is not italicised.

Storm Trooper should start with Good Craftsmanship Storm Trooper Carapace, not Carapace Armor (which isn't even an armor set).

On page 51, the Commisar suggested advancement chart refers to Iron Discipline as being available but possibly being granted by this specialty in character creation. On page 50 under starting talents, Iron Discipline is not available.

I think calculation of movement should be covered on stage 3.

on Page 70 (in addition to the missing chart 3-20) it says to Roll once on 3-21 to determine your comrade's demeanor, but there is no 3-21 either.

Perhaps it should be 3-19, the chart on the previous pages?

Table 3-14 talks about Characteristics having 0,1, or 2 matching Aptitudes to determine the cost of a Characteristic Advance

But table 3-15 (and supporting text) only indicates 1 Aptitude linked to each Characteristic meaning ALL Characteristic advances are are at 0 or 1 matching Aptitudes for a character.

How does a Character gain 2 matching Aptitudes for a Characteristic?

Are there other Aptitudes in addition to the original nine? If there are why are they no listed in table 3-15?
