Reprints... Corrected?

Tue 14 Jan 2020, 14:17

Does anyone know if the reprinted books, due sometime in the next month or so, will have been updated to include some corrections from known errata?
Thanks

Since it's called a reprint and not a revised edition, it seems likely it'll be just that: a reprint of the current book -- no corrections.

I cannot imagine FL thinking so carefully about every word when formulating their press releases.

Taking an old print file makes no sense in my opinion.

But maybe there will be an official answer.

I get what you are saying, but just because they are called re-prints doesn't categorically rule out errata being incorporated. Often Revised editions incorporate actual revisions to rules, additional content such as examples and clarifications, even formatting changes. Reprints can often include corrections to errors of wording etc.

Thanks for that. From what i can see, the PDF i received the other day has a lot of the corrections applied, so it would be nice if the reprinted books also include them.

So, i've watched/listened to that YT video and it isn't talking about Alien, it is talking about their other products, but it does give me hope that they will do the same with Alien
