Default Spillover on Terrain

The rules state:
Quote:
13.01.2 Spillover and overrun damage to terrain. If a regular attack is made against a unit in a town or forest hex (or any hex containing a road or railroad), a spillover attack is rolled against the hex’s defense of 4. As with other spillover attacks, the attack is at half strength, D results are ignored, and X counts as D. This means only attacks with a base strength of 8 or more can have any spillover effect on the terrain!
The combat results table allows for 1-2 attacks. So if an attack value of 4 was halved that would leave 2. Spillover would be 1-2. A roll of a 6 would be an X would be reduced to a D. Which according to:

But they also state:
Quote:
13.01 Damage to terrain and roads. [...]
If a town or forest hex gets a D result, it is damaged. All roads through that hex are cut. Place an overlay with the damaged version of that terrain. It will cover the road. [...]
Bold with underline is mine for emphasis.

So... an attack of 4 would still work right? If so then 13.01.2 is incorrect? Or did I miss where the attack is halved?

Yeah, 13.01.2 has bad math in it.

Not bad math, just a typo; the '8' should be a '4'. Chalk this one up for the errata file...

Added it to my errata file some time ago.

Is somebody keeping a better list? I'm sure I missed a few.

I'm keeping one too, though having two independent files is actually quite good, if you want to keep maintaining yours, too.

Thanks, Henry.

Could someone put this up as a google doc with comments turned on? Single source where everyone contributes and only a couple of allowed editors.???

Does SJG have an official errata list for Ogre 6e here somewhere?

I keep hearing rumors about an Ogre Wiki.
