One item Rich mentioned in the actual play thread was that you get three extra damage points per boost when hitting someone in Melee.  I figured I'd cross posts it back here in case anybody ever came looking.

Also, this can be figured out from the book, but both Endurance and Knowledge are missing from the character sheet.  Endurance (which is called Endure in a few places) is a Body skill, and Knowledge is under Perception.

So here's an actual question for Rich:  In the character generation rules, in the main text it says you divide J, 10, 8, 7, 7, 7, 6, 5 among your attributes, but in the examples it uses J, 10, 9, ...   Which one was intended?

Now that I'm going to be correcting it anyway, I'm probably going to expand the combat issue a bit, giving players some options on what to do with Boosts in combat...they could do a bit more damage, ignore the target's armor, get an advantage on thier next attack, whatever.  If you've played Unknown Armies, think of how "cherries" work.

The Endure/Endurance thing got mixed up quite a bit, but they're still the same skill.  I left Knowledge off because it's really a loose grouping of skills, so "History," Philosophy," "Law," etc. all fall under that header, and are basically write-in skills.

The character creation text is right; it looks like some text in the example slipped through the cracks when I messed with the numbers.

Rafial, before you started posting here, I only found one mistake in the entire book.  Now you've got me worried.
