I stand corrected (posts edited: I left only the ones where it could be detrimental to the meaning).

I figured I might as well try to be productive while I read, so I started keeping editing notes from the start. As you’ll see in the file I’ve linked, I may've gotten a little carried away. Consequently, I still haven't read past the first chapter :-P Not sure if dissection at this level is actually helpful this late in the game, but I figure it can't hurt to pass along what I have. Take what you will, and I apologize for the inevitable overlap.

Intro & Chapter 1 Edits

(A couple words of explanation on the file itself. The bulk of the entries revolve around either punctuation--mainly comma usage--or awkward word choice/phrasing. Only a few of them affect actual readability, but I find that technical precision and clarity is generally worth pursuing. I’ve tried to highlight in yellow any entries that reflect a personal attempt to smooth out the English rather than a reference to a hard-and-fast rule.)

I'm iffy on the use of the word habitate. Shouldn't it be inhabit (in the case of that sentence from page 12 inhabited)?

Pg 109

Ordinary computers are
harder to command (-1) than Advanced ones (+1).

This seems a bit back to front. Easier for a Data Djinn to operate an ordinary computer? Is this not child's play for a Data Djinn?

For the soldier's gear:
4. Command unit      or      targeting scope
The targeting scope is a cybernetic implant, but isn't marked with the (CYB) tag [as the soldier's cybernetic muscles (CYB) are, or the pilot's targeting scope (CYB) for the matter]. 
Also, cybernetic implants are accompanied by a matching Talent choice; targeting scope (CYB) is absent from the solider's talent list

Although the price of an armoured Gravcraft is mentioned in the Gear chapter, I can not see any stats for this on page 100

Pg 100


An enforcer from the Syndicate fires a missile against
Sabah’s gravcraft. The attack hits and deals 4 points
of damage. Sabah tests the gravcraft’s armor (Armor
Rating 3), and rolls one six. The gravcraft takes 3
points of damage.



In example missile does 4 damage but page 127 states that a missile launcher deals 6 damage

Hi Admins

Have you though about having something like a public Trello board where typos could be listed categorised and eventually moved to completed when incorporated in the edited Beta PDF?

see https://trello.com/b/sGnOPWaS/coriolis as an example of what it could look like
