I love this. However, I believe that I may have noticed an error that has carried over through several revisions.

The issue is the Thuval Salan Destroyer (pp143-144). The text description and statistics appear to be more related to the Zentraedi Scoutship as opposed to the larger Tuval Salan Destroyer. Is this intentional?

Reading through, and found a few possible 'mistakes'.
1) Zentraedi power armor... there are two "male" power armor listed, no "female" power armor, though the second should be female (should be, but without a picture, I am not 100%), even though it is stated as being "male".
2) Veritech speeds in space: battleoid mode is faster than guardian?! you list battleoid as delta 1, fighter as delta 1, but guardian as delta .5, but this makes no sense.
3) some of the listed speeds are all over the place. you have things listed as lower speeds still being able to achieve orbit (and some stall speeds are grossly high, and would require a 2-mile+ runway to take off or land), even though higher speeds are unable to do so, and that is questionable at best, though there is some suspension of disbelief already since actual escape velocity is something like Mach 38 IRL, so YMMV I guess.
4) did you *really* need a 'jet ski' skill?
5) unless you are intentionally altering...See more

Forgive me if I'm totally blind and simply couldn't find it, but the sidebar containing the Setting Rules for Robotech (Born A Hero, Gritty Damage, and More Skill Points) from page 31 of the original pdf printing, seems to be missing from the newer, March 31st update.

According to one of the authors in the "Robotech Savage Worlds (Official)" group: "All three were removed with the revision. More Skill Points specifically was removed because of how Zentraedi and other aliens work in future books. Gritty damage and Born A Hero I never felt added much to the setting. Feel free to house rule it though."

They were not removed, they were just missed. They will be there when we fix the errata.

I bought this last year and now it says it was updated Aug. 29, 2020. Is the Errata PDF just for older POD versions? Does the PDF and present POD include all updates now?
Customer avatar

Looking over product pdf and the errata pdf, it looks like the errata has not been applied to the pdf. Also, the page numbers in the errata are off by 2, i.e. p151 mentioned in the errata is actually p153 in the product pdf. This may vary the further back you go. There are a lot of charts in the errata that are not in my product.

ForEx: the errata mentions replacing RDF with UEDF on p150-151. My product does not show those changes.

Yes, sorry about that. We were just trying to get the errata out there and we just uploaded it without cross checking the reference. The revised book is currently in layout and you will get an update of the pdf, that integrates the errata, as soon as its ready to go.

Two questions...
Is this related to the old Robotech RPG?
Is this a Macross focused RPG? Can it be tweaked to work with a Macross Plus timeline?

It is not related to the old Palladium Robotech RPG nor the Shadow Chronicles RPG.

The noted changes, do they appear in the POD version as well? or are they just in PDF?
Customer avatar
Jonathan M June 26, 2020 9:03 pm UTC

They should be in both. We are working to revise the POD version, but dont have an eta on that just yet.

PDF update happened today. As soon as we are satisfied with the final edit, we will launch a new POD for this book as well.

Any more info, now that it is 2021?

Unfortunately it’s going slowly. We are still trying to catch up after being unable to work for so long after the fire. It’s probably going to be around April. We have a FB group for people to get more information on the upcoming events related to this title. The FB group is Robotech Savage Worlds (Official)

Italian and Spanish, they are helping with the errata, so that is the reason we are waiting. There is nothing like a translator to catch all your errors :D

Not as of yet. It will be in the next few months I imagine. We had a tragedy where my office was destroyed (was attached to my home) by an arsonist. We are slowly getting back up to speed.

Some of the characters have hindrances like "Oath," "Enemy" or "Love," but the nature of the hindrance isn't specified (what oath? who is the enemy or love interest). Some of this seems easy enough to suss out (Roy and Claudia, for instance), while some of it seems to be a bit murky (Rick took an oath?). Any chance on getting more clarity on this in a future update?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
