The 99.9% finished rulebook, as well as the Player Reference Sheet, are posted at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/kickstarter/ogre_rulebook.pdf and http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/kickstarter/ogre_ref_sheet.pdf. See anything wrong? Let us know in this thread.

Please don’t post the same comment here and on the parallel SJGames thread, and if somebody else has already pointed out a typo, there’s no need to post “I see it too.” Of course, if a real “what does this rule mean?” question comes up (let alone a “this rule is a change from the old game and is stupid”), discussion will be appreciated!

This will be your first look at the Brandon Moore illustrations of our “portrait” supporters on the Ogre battlefield. I really like these. My thanks again to the supporters, and I hope you all survive into the next scene.

We expect to post the Scenarios book on Monday (with the rest of the portraits).

Daniel and I are still talking about a few lines in the rulebook, here and there, but only a few. He’s at Essen right now. If you’re there, drop by the Pegasus booth and say hi!

In-house checking of the counter and overlay sheets is now well along. No major problems found. We’re not going to post all 39 for comment, but we’ll put up a counter sheet and an overlay sheet so you can see them.

Links are broken, Phil. Work fine from the Kickstarter update so probably just a board formatting error?

Thank you. They should work now.

Awesome! Thanks for the preview...

You're probably looking for feedback that would apply to the printed booklet, but FYI: The row and column headings on all the tables look screwy when the PDF is rendered on an iPad. They look fine elsewhere. I assume I'm not the only person with a pretty massive collection of PDF rulebooks on my tablet for easy reference, so maybe look into fixing that for the final electronic version.

And miscellaneous question: Is the wounded soldier on page 15 supposed to be Tycho Brahe? I only ask because he bears a striking resemblance to the PA character, I know Jerry is a KS backer, and it's probably not supposed to be the Dutch astronomer... so... c'mon - spill the beans!

Thanks again!

Minor issue: 2.03.01 Roads

Says "... grey line with a dashed white center ..."

Figures here and elsewhere have dashed YELLOW centers.

I feel like I'm picking nits!

I noticed this, too (but I promise I'm not posting just to say that.)

Further investigation shows rendering problems when I view the files on my iPad in Safari, iBooks, and Kindle. However, when viewing them with the Adobe Reader app, the files render just fine.

I don't know why this might be, just thought I'd chime in with a little more info.

I've run into this exact situation with PDFs in the past. These days I just try to always use the Adobe Reader app on my iPad to view PDFs. Saves headaches.

I don't know what, if anything, we can do to make a PDF display properly in every type of reader out there. I will let our guys know about the issue and maybe they'll have a solution.
