I'm finally getting around to running a game for my local group, and I see that there are 5 beta updates to alter the rules.  My question is how do I use them?  Do I need to have all 5 printed out and available or do they build on each other so that the most recent is all I need?

 

Sorry if this is a silly question.  Please let me know and thanks in advance for the answers.

 

May the force be with you, always.

All you need is the week 5 update. It's a collection of all prior updates.

Do we have an idea of how many weekly beta updates there will be? As is, I am not running a game of this, at the moment, so I don't have quite the imperative to pour over each one, see that the next one came out, and try to compare them, to see what else has changed. I like looking, but want to hold off on printing the most up to date one, to go with said $30 book, when it is over. Is there an estimated time table for it? Thanks very much.

Don't have to compare them as each new one has the newest errata in red. As to how long, I've heard till the end of November/beginning of December, but I'm not totally sure.

Yes. IIRC, the cutoff date for feedback is December 1.

Which means, we'll probably have a release date for the Beginner's Box a few weeks after that to account for printing and shipping time, and the full Beta a little while after that.

I think he meant the finalized EotE.

Umm, so I might stay up to date, what day o' the week does the new beta errata usually come down? It's been on number 6 for a good little while, but I'm not sure if it's been oh so long.

Every Tuesday, so far. No specific time of day, though. One week it was about 9am CT, the next it was well after 3pm CT. So just keep checking on Tuesdays.
