    It appears as if you’ve left out the Academic investigative skill Linguistics from the character sheet.

    I just noticed that the link to the printer-friendly version of the Quade Diagram leads to a very ordinary, non printer-friendly, version of said diagram.

    In fact, it would appear that the printer-friendly version has vanished from the internet completly. There’s a link to it in a very old update, but the link is dead…

    A couple things on the links for MCB. The link to the Quade Diagram gives a 404. The character sheet is the 1st edition sheet. Any chance you can get the 2nd edition sheet uploaded? Same for the 2nd edition Quade Diagram. Thanks.

  4. Vic says:

    The character sheets both have some formatting anomalies (squished or bolded letters mostly) and say Compose instead of Composure (everyone’s a bard!).
    The latter is true of the sheet in the book, though it looks great.

    • Becky Smith says:

      Hi Vic. The formatting anomalies appear to be an effect of extracting the character sheet from the full PDF. This looks fine when first extracted, but then the anomalies creep in. I will pass on the compose/composure errata. Thanks, Becky.

    p. 13 of the 2nd edition, “There’s a fuller list of changes on the Pelgrane Press website.”

    Is there? It ought to be on this page, and I’m not seeing it.
