Is it an oversight or is the Huntsman's Ambusher ability not supposed to grant the bonus to the rest of the party after preparation (like how the Barbarian's and the Ranger's ability work)?

Not an oversight; the huntsman’s ambusher ability is slightly different. He’s a little more opportunistic, and also more likely to work alone.

​(For those curious about such matters, a check of my archives shows that I added that ability to the huntsman in draft 9 of VOL. I in April 2016; by the end, VOL. I saw 55 drafts. I don’t recall if I added it on my own, or at Jeff’s direction.)

David---

Should we discover an erratum in ASSH2, should we post it here, or will you be starting a new thread?

Allan, I’m going to naively believe that a new errata thread won’t be necessary. If you simply must burst my bubble, then please feel free to post any new findings in this thread. As usual, everything good about the new book is Jeff’s work, and anything wrong with it is mine.

Re: AS&SH Errata

ASSH 2e, page 73 of Players Manual, Also in Volume 1.

For Priests of Apollo

1st Level: May select one additional weapon skill with bow of choice (self or composite).

I'm guessing "self" should be "short".

I think I only found this because I'm doing a hobby project to create a pc generation program and I'm creating all the tables I think I need. Goodness is it tedious (and I'm maybe half way through the Abilities stuff and I am not including these optional Priest Abilities).

A self bow is one made of a single piece of wood - not laminated from multiple materials like a composite bow. I assumed that was the distinction Jeff was making here (i.e., "self" is the opposite of "composite" when speaking about bows).

I could go along with that but why not say "any bow" when that is what would be the effect?

Of the bows listed in the book there are:

Long Bow
Short Bow
Long Composite Bow
Short Composite Bow

Long Bow and Short Bow would be assumed to be "self" bows but that isn't stated explicitly.

As I am not the author I am probably wrong.

Re: AS&SH Errata

Maybe excluding crossbows as they dont fit the Apollo model.


“How can I wear the harness of toil
And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

I definitely think that is the intent of the rule, but I think it gets a bit lost in the language.

I love rich language usage but in some cases it gets in the way of clarity. A self bow isn't mentioned anywhere else in the player volumes.

So, not a typo but something that might trip up folks.

This was indeed the intent. Blame the editor for lack of clarity.

Re: AS&SH Errata

I'm not sure I would really call this errata, but something I came across when making a change to my PC generator app.

It of course deals with the class with a lot of...exceptions. I am talkin' 'bout the runegraver.

Definitely the least traditional of spell casters.

The bit I had to code around and change some stuff with really dealt with spell descriptions. Specifically with each spell's level.

Initially, I just took whatever from the list in my data file. Eventually I just added in an entry for runegraver. It just made things easier.

As I wrote, I don't think it rises to the level of errata, but maybe something to add in whenever the pdf gets updated and such. I think the class description handles it just fine.


What? Me worry?
