How do the listed opportunities for enemies work? As npcs don't roll for themselves, do they only trigger when the Narrator spends Gears of Fate?

Ignore my question, I found the answer in the Enemies chapter! Teaches you to always read rulebooks cover to cover! ;-)

Some questions about potential errata.

Page 296 - In example block 1, shouldn't the number of wounds inflicted on Vas be 2, as a natural roll of 4 is in the green damage progression position - shown in example block 2.

Some of the adversaries have weapons that are not listed in the attack (for example, machette for the Brute on page 298). Is it fair to say that any player centric weapon's damage track is simply inverted if used by an NPC. (i.e. running from 12 to 1 instead of 1 to 12)

Hi A D! You are right, we were focusing on explaining how the Narrator can use the Gears of Fate and we did not notice the inaccuracy. And it is correct to say that any weapon's damage track is simply inverted if used by an NPC. We added some reserve weapon for narrative necessities.
Thanks for the report, it's really useful for us!

Some more errata (for the English version)

Page 6, second column - incorrect idiom - "easier done than said" should read "easier said than done".

Chapter 1
Page 24, stat block - typo - "Arti" should be "Arts".

Page 49 - clarification - How many vices can a character have? Is that up to the GM?.

Page 54 - typo - Italian text used in the English version diagram

Classic Character Sheet PDF - sheet is missing clickable boxes for the weapon damage tracks.

Thanks again AD!!! We will collect your indications to complete the corrigendum. The Classic sheet has not the clickable boxes for the weapon damage tracks. That function has been implemented recently in our new sheets.

Ma alla fine il file è in italiano o inglese? Perché io lo voglio in italiano.
In più, cosa si intende con "watermarked pdf"? Che ogni singola pagina ha il watermark sopra? Perché se è così, io quei 6€ in più per togliere il watermark li pago

Ciao, il manuale è disponibile sia in italiano che in inglese. Il Watermark riporta il tuo nome e il numero d'ordine molto piccolo in basso a a sinistra ed è una tutela contro la pirateria, non è di nessun fastidio per la lettura o la visualizzazione

The file labeled as being the English version with bookmarks is the Italian version of the game.

Hi Michael,
it was an issue of DTRPG for the browser version.
Now it's all ok.
Thank you for your support!

Is printing and copy/paste still disabled? If so I’m not interested.

Other than being able to read it, what exactly do you envision is the benefit of a PDF you cannot print or copy/paste from? Serious question.
Customer avatar
Paul B April 02, 2020 1:58 am UTC
I seriously would love to know the answer to that question. Literally 100% of the reason I ever get any book in PDF format (I only read physical books) is to be able to make my own reference sheets (by copy/pasting from the PDF instead of typing everything myself) or print out relevant information (charts, tables, maps...).

The decision to disable copy/pasting and printing also looks incredibly petty given that I've literally never encountered this on any product available on DriveThru before. Not exactly a good look for a company I've never heard of before.

Hi Ron and Paul,
we began our adventure on DTRPG choosing to disable copy/paste and print as it was a possibility that fell within the options of this platform. Thanks to your comments we realized how important this possibilities are for all our supporters and so we decided to ENABLE THE COPY/PASTE AND PRINT on this and the next works that will be published here.
We hope you will appreciate this choice.
Thank you for your suggestions.

Hi. How are range and movement handled: Mats and miniatures? Specific measurements (such as exact metres) that are tracked or largely ignored/handwaved? Broad zones/bands for easy Theatre of the Mind play? Something else?
Customer avatar
Simone R April 01, 2020 3:19 pm UTC
Hello Colin, range and movement are handled with specific measurements. We use the Cubitus, a custom unit of measurement which corresponds to about 1,3 meters. In the rulebook, you can find the rules to use the combat grid (1 cubitus = 1 square), but it's not a judgment call. You can easily play Vulcania in a narrative way if you prefer.

And a preview also would be interesting. Also What's the actual page count of the file? Tab to the right says 436 pages but the description above states 464 pages...

Original electronic
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.
