Kind of a major problem with the QSR and Digital box.  The spell cards are misprinted.  Stats for the Armor spell are on the Fireball and Flamestrike card and others.  This has been reported from people who bought the box set as well as the digital box on DTRPG, meaning it's not like this was a problem on the printer's side.  It's product problem.

Will you be making this right with purchasers by sending them out correctly printed physical and digital cards?  If so, when will that take place?

I'd like to use it to help new players out, but I can't do that with problems like this unresolved.  I've already told my groups to hold off, so they don't waste money on this version of the set.  Please let us know when and how this will be addressed.

You might want to contact Customer Support at Catalyst regarding this. I'm not sure how many would see this post on the forums.

OK, I sent something.  I tried to be nice about it.  I'm just glad I didn't buy a set yet.  If they agree to fix it, I'd like to though.  Seems like it would be a simple thing to do (he said, not being a game publisher).

They do try their best to resolve issues. However, CGL is a company of 35 people that produce Shadowrun, BattleTech, D&D Dragonfire, Valiant Role-playing, and other games. Most of the writing and artwork is done by freelancers that are paid for the project, and they do not have a full-time editing staff. I hope they are able to help you with the issues.

They got in touch, but it turns out they didn't even know about the print issues and/or thought they had already been fixed in the PDF file (which it is clearly not, best I can ascertain).  I'm waiting for another follow up email to my reply.  I've offered to try to help steer the community to the right fix if they have one available.  If there's some option for it, people should know about it.  Folks might be getting upset over something that's fixable.  I don't know how closely the store people are tied to the rest, if at all.
