A question of elves

Postby Heimdallsgothi » Wed Mar 29, 2017 6:29 pm

So I just picked up The Dark Eye, and I'm loving the read so far (granted I just started)
I was reading through the character creation section and on page 40 of the PDF I ran across this

Sarah, however, wants to play an elf, which costs 15 AP. All three
players record the basic values on their hero documents, as they
are needed for later calculations.

And further down the same column

The AP costs for their heroes’ races reduces Sarah’s AP total
by 18, giving a remaining total of 1,082 AP, while Louisa
and Chris don’t have to pay anything. They still have their
initial 1,100 AP.

The elf description in the race area states the AP cost should be 18, so I'm pretty sure the example is giving an incorrect value
If I agreed with you, then we'd both be wrong.

Elf cost 18AP. It's an typo. You can check for typos and errors already reported in this topic PDF Error Collection Thread

And welcome aboard. Hope that you'll like rules and setting :)

Excellent
I'm used to errata pages being sticky in the rules area, never thought to look in tangency

Many of the things in the error collection thread have made it into the PDF (and upcoming 2nd printing), so they're not technically errata anymore.

Still, I do need to collect some of the most common questions into an FAQ. Hopefully I'll have time soon...
