A very minor typo, but on p119 of the book in the PDF, “Defining Your Community”, in the second column, second paragraph it has “Game Mastery” instead of “Game Master”.May 24, 2015 at 4:16 pm #16047
With the change from low-roll-wins-ties to high-roll-wins-ties, the probabilities in the How Good are Masteries? section p. 33 are no longer accurate.
With high-roll-wins-ties, a one mastery advantage wins about 95% of the time rather than 75%. To illustrate this, consider the example of cottar 10 vs. thane 10w1.
With low-roll-wins-ties, cottar wins when cottar succeeds (50%) and thane fails (50%) = 25%, because the roll that gave the cottar success also gives him the low roll.
With high-roll-wins-ties, all of those cases go to the thane: the roll that gave the thane failure also gives him the high roll. So the cottar only wins if:
(a) cottar crits (5%) and thane fails (50%) = 2.5%
or (b) cottar succeeds (50%) and thane fumbles (5%) = 2.5%
The “all but certain to win” text then applies to a 2-mastery advantage rather than a 3-mastery advantage.
Likewise, the “will always be victorious, although” text then applies to a 3-mastery advantage rather than 4.May 25, 2015 at 10:11 am #16051
Rick/Jeff/Neil, I realise that the book has gone to print now, but are you still interested in collecting typos etc for correcting the PDF and any future potential reprint? I noticed a few more and didn’t know whether they were worth posting or not.June 12, 2015 at 3:29 pm #16251
Confusing Rules or Typo: page 101, Defensive Responses
In an extended contest, a hero can make a defensive response, lowering the number of Resolution Points lodged against the losing party to an exchange. If the hero wins the exchange, he lodges 2 fewer Resolution Points against his opponent. If the hero loses the exchange, the number of Resolution Points lodged against his opponent decreases by 1.
Shouldn’t the last sentence read:
If the hero loses the exchange, the number of Resolution Points lodged against him by his opponent decreases by 1.
