Thanks for those LittleBird. Anything new you (or anyone else) dig(s) up, especially grammar- or index-related, is definitely still appreciated.

Sphinx's postings were pretty thorough, but if anyone's in any doubt, or holds a differing opinion, after a quick scan please post it up anyway.

Many thanks, Navi

Did any of these get compiled into a single document?

For the questions about rules, did a FAQ ever get assembled?

I'm super psyched about starting my first Shadowrun Anarchy campaign this month, as is evidenced by my character creation spreadsheet (link below), and I'd like to help out getting all the corrections / fixes to my copy of the rules before I start.

I think these haven't been done yet:

P125 Thunder’s Fix Spell needs to be added to the catalog.

P138-139 Any spirit with an elemental attack should add to skills: Projectile Weapons skill level 3. Agility + Projectile Weapons attack should be listed as the attack pool for the power. The defense for elemental attack is inconsistent, sometime S+W other times A+L. The engulf power should state it is a close combat attack.

I must have (repeatedly) overlooked the Fix spell as a Heal spell variant (Thunder was a mess). Ta.

Per Pg. 32, Critter ranged attacks are covered by Projectile Weapons. Anarchy doesn't use the Exotics or other niche skills if it can help it. Issues with which Critters have it and why have been raised.
