The marathon proofread continues, most of the way through Core worlds now...

</font>
  • Page 47, column 2, Gotta get away sidebar: "...or not monitored..." should this be "...are not monitored..."</font>
  • Page 47, column 2, Gotta get away sidebar, last sentence has some punctuation missing: perhaps it should read "Such urban areas, which are extremely rare, are known as Blights to the authorities and Havens to other, less law-abiding types."</font>
  • Page 50, Column 1, The Tribal Nations: "...central authority in United States..." should this be "...central authority in the United States..."</font>
  • Page 52, Column 1, Military Presence: "...while Naval Base is for..." should this be "...while a Naval Base is for..."</font>
  • Page 52, Column 1, "Interface Capabilty..." should be "Interface Capability..."</font>
  • Page 52, Column 2, Airship Net: "...has a airship transport..." should this be "...has an airship transport..."</font>
  • Page 55, Column 2, about half-way down: "...seeing on opportunity..." should this be "...seeing an opportunity..."</font>
  • Page 56, Column 1, New Ground sidebar: "The main criteria is that is the world..." should this be "The main criteria is that the world..."</font>
  • Page 57, Column 2, Half-way down: "...but it does have program working..." should this be "...but it does have a program working..."</font>
  • Page 59, Column 1, Notes: "...are though to be capable of..." should this be "...are thought to be capable of..."</font>

Cheers Twilight, all those years as a technical writer make me a natural pedant

Still going through the manuscript (e-mailed to me a couple of weeks ago-Sorry guys!)and have noticed that the character sheet doesn't print well. There's a doppler effect on the fonts.
This makes things like 'fortitude','armor(ar)','reflex','will', 'melee' etc seem heavy and blurred. There isn't much of this problem on the boxes so it makes me wonder if a stroke has been added or an attempt at a drop shadow has been made? The aforementioned 'armor(ar)' and all the text next to the abilities (within the title bar) becomes unreadable for me.
is anyone else seeing this or has my printer gone insane?

Overall, the book looks great. I purchased mine at RPGNow. Seems that whatever computer I open it on (and whatever version of Adobe), I get a font error and blank, white pages around 68 through 74...

Does it mention what font is missing? Sounds like a corrupt file with the white pages. I'd see if you can get RPGNow to reset the download for you and grab it again. If that doesn't work, drop me an email and I'll set up a download in the eLibrary for you and see if you can get it that way.

Thanks. I have an email in to RPGNow already (though I haven't heard back... a few days now).
The actual error message was insufficient data to process EXT89 font...
New one on me.
I think re-downloading from RPGNow is the best option. If it does not work, I will let you know.
P.S.: Thanks for the prompt response.

Cool

Odd...
Just went back to RPGNow and re-downloaded. File works perfectly now!
Anyway, shouldn't complain. At least it finally works!!!
