DP9-104 Errata

Miscellaneous Score Formula Errata

During the writing and editing of the Second Edition of the Heavy Gear
Technical Manual, a couple of mistakes were left in the book due to a
lack of proper editing time. While the typos themselves are hard to
correct, some of the other errors can be fixed.

The Vehicle Construction System on pages 68-145 allows you to build
practically any type of vehicles you wish to incorporate in the game. To
make this easier, we used a rewritten chapter we had put together for
Jovian Chronicles, since it was cleaner and better explained the whole
design process. We did, however, fail to correct the Miscellaneous Score
formula (page 133) to reflect the one normally used in Heavy Gear. As a
result, Threat Values will not correspond to previously published ones.
You should thus replace the last two lines of the formula on page 133
with this one:

(Sensor Score + Comm Score + Perks & Flaws Total) squared

Note that the construction guide sheet on page 109 is correct, though "+"
and "=" signs were dropped during the typesetting process. You can get a
corrected version in .PDF format in the Funhouse on this Web site.
 


Missing Weapons

Due to a typesetting error, a number of weapons were dropped from
the main weapon list. We did not notice it until too late in the
printing process because these are specialized weapons that were
used only for a few designs. These weapons came from the Duelist
Handbook (DP9-005), Tactical Field Support (DP9-016) and Tactical
Air Support (DP9-008).
