Not sure if it is a copyright thing but Solomani is the correct name for people who stayed on Terra until 2100...not Solamani despite the same pronunciation...

It'll be fixed for the PDF, which you get free if you buy the print book.

Another bit of errata for you, if Drone refers to the Droyne that is. Also listed is Drone (Droyne?) female names and Drone (Droyne?) name names (was that supposed to be Drone (Droyne?) male names?).

This will be available as PDF too, yes?

Yea, it appears I rolled a natural 2 on the title for those guys. Someone else commented that I "messed up a major part of the setting" because I was unaware that Droynes have 6 genders. I mean I knew there were 6 castes but I didn't know they each had their own gender. I still have a long way to go in learning the setting. I'm not sure how I'm going to fix that in the book, but I'll figure a way to do that too.

The PDF will be available around the same time as the printed book, which looks to be around the end of Oct.

That "someone else" is the one who rolled a natural 2. Droyne do have six castes - you are correct. But they have three genders - not six. Page 11 from Alien Module 5 (Droyne) states under Droyne Genders "Droyne have three sexes, designated Alpha Male, Beta Male, and Female. Gender develops only after casting. Drones are female; Leaders, Sports, and Warriors are alpha males; Workers and Technicians are beta males."

So, as per the Droyne source material, your female names and male names lists are both perfect. I mean, you could have differentiated between alpha male and beta male, but the fact that you did not is hardly a big deal.
