Beta Feedback - Referee's Manual Chapter 5 Scenario Sites

Tue 20 Apr 2021, 15:05

Please use this thread to report any typos or errors in Chapter 5 - Scenario Sites in the Referee's Manual of the Beta PDF. Rules to remember:
  • Before reporting an error, please check and see if it already has been reported, and if so, don't report it again.
  • If you want to discuss or feedback something that is not a clear error, don't do it here - instead, please start a new forum post the specific issue.
  • If you feedbacked on something in the Alpha PDF and it's not changed in the Beta, it's there by choice - we have carefully studied all of the Alpha feedback, so please do NOT feedback on the exact same thing again, unless it's a clear typo or error.
  • Please report your feedback no later than May 1. After this date, we are unlikely to be able to make any further changes.

Page 2 shows Scenario Sites as Chapter 5, but the page 69 shows Chapter 4 Scenario Sites.

RM 76, sidebar "Rasputin's Religion" - "Easter Orthodox" typo; should be "Eastern Orthodox"

Page 93 and throughout:

Polish female surnames end with -ska not -ski.
Petronela Czerwinski should be Czerwinska in the rest of the chapter.

Radomila Wysocki should be Wysocka.

Page 87
Under the motorpool it says "the motor pool contains four Gaz," I'm guessing it should say Uaz

It's probably referring to the GAZ-66 truck in the player's manual. It matches the Swedish version of the location having 4 TGB-11 trucks.

On page 110, the 2e vehicle speed conversions
COMBAT SPEED: To translate a 2nd edition vehicle to 4th
edition, divide the 2nd edition Combat Movement values
by 7, rounding fractions down.
TRAVEL SPEED: To translate a 2nd edition vehicle to 4th
edition, divide the 2nd edition Combat Movement values
by 14, rounding fractions down.
1) Are these division values correct? Feeding some test data into the conversions, the numbers came out very low.
2) Is travel speed supposed to be calculated from combat movement? In the 4e manual most travel speeds are ~2x larger than combat speeds, this conversion results in the travel speeds being 2x slower.
Test results can be seen here under "2e conversion results" sheet

  • On page 72, in the last bullet point under COUNTDOWN, a sentence reads, "This puts the prison between two sizable forces (like one US and one Soviet)..." Did you perhaps mean "likely" instead of "like?" It's technically correct as written, but "likely" preserves the tone of the text so far.
  • On page 79 in the RUMORS pull quote, the final rumor reads, "A rebellion brews against the occupying forces of a nearby town. They seek help in liberating their people." It's unclear who the "they" in the second sentence refers to, the people rebelling or the occupiers. If it's the former, you could replace "They" in the second sentence with "The rebels."
  • On page 80 in the MEETING WESTMORELAND box, part of the first sentence reads, "...if Westmoreland, together with some of his men, saves their lives before they arrive..." "Saves" should be "save" here.
  • On page 90 in the right column in the second full paragraph, it says, "she wrestles with the question of whether what they do here or not is right." This should read "she wrestles with the question of whether what they do here is right or not." (You could also simply leave out the "or not.")
  • On page 91 in the first sentence of his introduction, Cadet Captain Tomas Zalot is called "Captain Cadet Zalot."
  • On page 93 in the left column, in the second paragraph under THE SITUATION, the punctuation in the first sentence should be: "For several months before the fire, there was a conflict between the leader of the town, Captain Radek Ostrowski, and a nearby group of marauders led by Petronela Czerwiński, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Pain.”"
  • In the same section, paragraph four, sentence two, the word captain should be capitalized.
  • On page 98, number two under EVENTS, the first sentence is incomplete. It reads, "Radomiła (roll RECON to see if they spot her before she spots them)." (Several of the events here seem incomplete, especially when compared to the events in the other scenario sites.)

I see, this should be clarified by adding the numbers on the end of the vehicle name then.
