Alternity Player’s Handbook errata – Version 1.0,21 May 1998
General note: When the text refers to a bonus or a penalty of a specific amount (-1 bonus, +2 penalty, etc.), the number represents steps on the Situation Die Steps Scale. For instance, if the situation die is +d4 and a -1 bonus is applied, the situation die becomes +d0. If a +2 penalty is applied, the situation die becomes +d8. The number does not represent an alteration to the result of a die roll.
p.12, col 1, “Situation Die Steps”: A smaller version of the Situation Die Steps Scale does not appear on the character templates later in this chapter. (We eliminated those elements from the final APHB to make room for the Background descriptions for each character.)
p.15, Entertainer character template: The missing last line under “Background” should read “rary member of the Nebula Bounty’s crew.”
p.35, col 1, just above the Example: The cost to purchase a skill at rank 3, after rank 2 has been purchased, is the list price or list price -1 plus 2 (the skill’s current rank).
p.63, col 3, “Trained or Untrained”: The untrained score is determined by taking one-half of the Ability Score, rounded down (not up).
p.86, bottom sidebar, Good Success: Should be 10% in a random wrong direction (not 90%).
p.155, col 2, Notebook: Additional battery packs cost $20 each.
p.173: Missing statistics for the Tri-staff are as follows: Actions 3, Clip Size 12, Clip Cost 200, Hide -, Mass 5. Avail Res, Cost 5000.
p.176, Crossbow: Skill should be Prim-crossbow (not Prim-bow).
p.183: Mass of the PL 5 heavy machine gun should be 50, not 0.5.
