Re: Errata from Genlab Alpha

Hi!In my copy of the book, there are two almost (but not quite) identical Talents, both called 'Mechanic'. On p78, there's a reference to a 'Mechanics' (with an -s) to be found on p58 -- but the Talent to be found there is the first 'Mechanic'.As well as the two changes called out as updates to the Mutant: Year Zero rules in Genlab Alpha (Initiative and Grappling), it seems that there is a change in the recovery rules as well.
To recover from trauma now requires one grub / water per point of damage / fatigue recovered rather than 1 ration to recover all damage / fatigue. Should this be considered an update to the Mutant: Year Zero rules as well?
Are there any other changes to the core / shared rules that haven't been explicitly called out?
Also, I noted that there seem to be two duplicate (or at least *very* similar) general talents in Genlab Alpha - Mechanic and Scrounger. Which is the correct version of the talent?
Should one one these be 'Mechanics' and the other 'Mechanic'? Or should there be a different name for one?
'Scrounger' appears to be a scavenger's special Talent, quite different from the two 'Mechanic's.
The two Mechanic talents is an error - there is only on talent with this name. We suggest you use the version on page 59. The reference to "Mechanics" on page 78 is correct - it refers to individuals with the Mechanic talent.
