Bona fide errata should definitely go to errata@sjgames.com. Problems like "This PDF was working before but now it's corrupt" or "This file used to have bookmarks but now it doesn't" can go to me. (I mean, Errata works fine for those as well, but they'll just be forwarded back to me to fix the files, soooo . . .)

As ever, if you discover any problems, please let me know!
Big thanks for the update to the PDfs - that was great. SJGames customer service, second to none!

I sent in a typo errata about a week after the PDFs were released, and I notice it's still not corrected in the new version. In Exploits, the PDF table of contents has an extra space in Introduction; what is actually there is "Introduct ion"

I know there are a few items of errata on the books that we need to implement including the above but I've been trying to wait until we have enough to be "worthwhile" (if that makes sense) . . . or barring that until enough time had passed that I can be reasonably confident we're not going to get anything more significant.

In the case of the maps and Cardboard Heroes, I went ahead and pushed those updates because they were fairly straightforward (just tweaking PDF-creation settings), and because they wouldn't affect the other PDFs.

So, yes, I'm planning on having an update to the rulebook PDFs in the not-too-distant future (definitely before the end of the year). But I wanted to wait until the physical boxed sets started showing up in folks' hands (to see if anything else turns up), rather than taking the time to fix a few minor typos, have a jillion people download a 100-meg update, spend the time to fix a few more minor issues, have folks redownload again, etc.

(I hope that makes sense!)

Are there any plans to re print the full line of Cardboard heroes just like the ones in DFRPG?

No plans. Is this something you would support if we took the idea of a Cardboard Heroes box to Kickstarter?

Actually, yes I would absolutely support it. (If they were done the way you did in the DFRPG) I think the product is excellent and should be out there for gamers to use.

I am intrigued by your ideas and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

(Depends on the precise contents and price, of course, but this is something I'd be likely to back.)

I like the cardboad stpock in these and also would support such a kickstarter. Be nice if it had a multi hex option as well. Imagine some figures for really large monsters without the weight and bulk of lead figures.

Above included for agreement. Adding more stuff from the DF Monsters line would be a big plus.
