When is the revised version due? My friends and I are very excited to begin our campaigns in the world of the witcher, but we would prefer to already have the full version.

The text above mentions the class "Men Art Arms" (should be Men At Arms).
Congrats on your game, Cody. I remember when your birth was announced in the Cyberpunk 2020 supplement, "Listen Up, You Primitive Screwheads!"

Hi. Does the print version announced to be coming out in the UK next week contain the errata?

At the moment, all physical versions of the book are first printing, which means they are not updated with the errata.

Hi there!

I'm deciding between buying the pdf version or the book at the Lucca Comics and Games here in Italy in a few days. But I want to ask a few question before.

1) The PDF is coloured or in black and white?
2) For how long will the pdf be updated and given support? This is the relevant question because this can be done, while buying a printed version will require to check the errata sometimes, probably slowing down the game. It's not a big deal (my group generally plays in the ol' D&D 3.X edition, it's not like slower combat is a problem for us) but yet I wanted to know.

I am not the author:

The PDF is in color.

It was just updated to reflect the errata, so it seems when there is errata this will be updated.

As Jason said (thanks, Jason!).
1. The PDF is in full color.
2. We just did an update with errata. We'll continue to do so on occasion down the line as needed.

WAIT FOR A PROPER EDITED LAYOUT/REPRINT - just the omission of Combat Resolution which is actually on page 163 titled 'In Depth Combat' makes this look like a high school/6th former attempt at writing an rpg. Careers and skill trees are PAGES away from each other - why not have each tree after each description like FFGs Star Wars splat??? Put all Witcher info STRAIGHT after all other careers, not 191 pages later SLOPPY.Put the fancy stats for Geralt and Co in an appendix, ditch the art wasted on half pages!!! They really couldn't come up with just one more artefact weapon on page 264??? SLOPPY I am soooo glad my friend shelled out for this instead of me.... yep, i'll certainly buy a hardcopy once the 30 page errata and Q&A are rectified.. 2 out of 5.

Hello,
Thanks for the RPG! I'm having a blast with my group, but after the Sage Answers and some gaming sessions I've still got some questions about the rules.

- At page 166 there's a section about Magic Attacks. Maybe it's a term for attacking with spells, but from what I've understand mages, witchers & priest can make those magic attacks, as a kind of cantrip standart attack (like the basic attack of mages in Witcher video games). My problem is that I haven't seen anywhere what are the damage of the magic attack or its range (would assume it's melee, so about 2m). Also, witchers can use signs sure, but the magic attack doesn't feel very in tune with the profession, since their understanding and use of magic is limited.

- In one of the Sage Answers from Talsorian blog Cody is writing that : "If you get a large group of Nekkers ganging up on one person, that person can be taking defense penalties up to -4 or -5 on top of whatever they are taking as penalties for their...See more

1. Its a term for attacking with a spell.
2. This will be in the update/errata. You suffer a -1 to Defense Actions for each enemy beyond the first adjacent to you. An enemy must be capable of attacking you for you to get the penalty.
3. Magic Healing as written is not an Active duration so it doesn't require concentration.
4. That certainly could be house ruled. We didn't want to make Craftsmen a less attractive class by making it harder to craft in the field, though.

On page 25 for the familial fate, I noticed that for the family "your family is alive and together" tells you to go to parents and the "your parents are alive" tells you to go the family. I'm assuming this is a typo and they should be the other way around?

Please add Bookmarks/an Outline to the PDF ASAP. It’s not that complicated from InDesign! Also compressing the file reduces the file size by more than 80%, thank you!

Bookmarks will be added with the update, which is in progress of being made. I'll pass on the request to compress the file size.

Reducing file size will decrease the quality of pictures, i certanly would rather have a bigger file with good quality. However uploading a detailed original size and a reduced size pdf would solve this problem.

this totally depends on the settings of the compression; I don't care, what they will decide on, just two things:

1) DriveThruRPG has forcibly compressed files of other publishers to be more user-friendly in the past, I don't see why it would be different here

2) I compressed the file with ilovepdf.com with the default settings (basically 150dpi are more than enough for a digital file, unless you're into printing), and it removed 80% of the file size successfully

I don't have problems doing these things myself, I was just weirded out a bit, why it wasn't done already. Sometimes, publishers will offer two different file sizes, one might be digital use, the other printing. We'll see what they go for. Of course I wouldn't want bad quality.

Hello! I'm wondering about a rule on page 48. It states that your character can deadlift 50 times your body in kilograms. If I have understood the rules correctly your avarage character is able to deadlift around 250kg. This seems like a lot and I wonder if I understood everything.
Customer avatar
Levente K October 12, 2018 7:54 pm UTC
PURCHASER
That is correct, but 4-5 points in an attribute is the avarage for adventurers, the common folk is below that, 3-4 is avarage and 5 is pretty good. well 150-200kg deadlift is kinda much but peasant were and still are stronger than city people so you could assume it's okay.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
