Let me second that vote of thanks. I'll report every little error I see, but only in the spirit of making an already great book a smidge bit better and definitely not in the spirit of speaking ill of the work everyone put into it.

And there was much rejoicing.

A big thanks to all the authors, play-testers, and enthusiasts who contributed to this work.

Isn't that the same as saying that there are no tables for things like Helms and Neck Protection and it's a purposeful omission?

In other words there aren't any tables with things like Bascinets and Gorgets.

Maybe all the tables that you think you need are there, but I suggest you may want to watch your language there.

So again it's ok to say purposeful omission of tables, I'm sure someone will create the tables at some point, if not an SJGames writer than a helpful fan.

Wow.
It's actually better than all the preamble made it sound.
Now I can truly sate all those strange urges to play in classical Greece I've recently been suffering.I only bought Thaumatology last week but it's going on a back-burner while I enjoy the Low-Tech core book.

Thanks guy! Just have to make up my mind about whether I want the print version or the Right Now version. :)
