It was just sent out.

You should have the download in your email. If you DO NOT, please email me at

troll@trolllord.com

I'll send it again.

Some of the email addresses we have on file may not be proper as the book was 439 years late! ;)

I emailed you a screen shot of my preorder. Let me know if your records, ah, have no record of me please.

UPDATE: Got it. Thanks Steve!

I got the "forward" copy, but the original hasn't shown up. At least I have it DLing now, and I will give it a read over to help with editing.

Good deal Red and Tree!

Thanks Relaxo. Those are the things I know slipped through in all these changes.

I'm off for the night, going to watch Parker. I'll check back for more download problems in the morn.

Trollzah!

Post Re: TLG 8127 Rune Lore (Preorder)
What I have found, and think in one case, so far:

Page 7, second paragraph, "nuances of infleXtion", the X should be a "c".

Page 9, second full paragraph, ""reveal the hidin knowledge", should be "hidden".

Next paragraph, "many many sheets of runes", do you really want two "many"s?

I think you should give the fourth paragraph a good rewrite. Shorten sentences, clarify the plague, and what Runes went with whom. Just a poorly written paragraph all around. Plus when you talk of the Dwarven Runes you write, "these runes were THE of Dwarven make," plus that all just reads like a bunch of run on sentences with no clear subject, etc...


Page 10, second paragraph, last sentence, what does he combine use of the runes with?

Last paragraph on page 10, beginning of the final senetence, you did not capitalize "rune mark", even though it begins the sentence.

Also, despite "rune mark" being the name of something, you never capitalize it, even though proper names are always supposed to be capitalized.

Page 11, "Begining Runes rune marks begin", you may want to redo as "Begining Runes: Rune Marks begin..."

Is Eidetic Memory supposed to require an INT check to recall the details?

Language Mastery, after the 4 days, if he is already level 7 when exposed to the language, does he have all those abilities, or must he be there for 4 days, then all 7 levels to gain such mastery?

The trolls are in Arkansas, so it's almost certainly "hidin'." As in, "I'ma troll a'hidin' unda da bridge."

Just had a chance to check email this morning, and no Rune Lore for Rigon. :( I sent an email, so hoping this can be fixed shortly.

Rigon,

I fired off a few more replacement emails, so if you don't have it shortly, holler again.

Thanks,
Steve

I should have more time for editing errors and suggestions tonight. Just make sure you guys send in the corrected copy for printing when this is all done.

Thanks! Remember to email them to the troll account, that way i can make sure i get them in.

In regards to your earlier post, we never cap the name of classes, be it fighter, cleric or rune mark, but nice catch where the beginning of the sentence Rune mark was rune mark. Damn find and replace!

Thanks again,
Steve

Steve, I checked and nothing. Strange that it won't come through, since I got Jack of Lies right away and without any issues. You could try sending it to my gmail account: cwm4073@gmail.com.

You sure? I seem to recall you not receiving a fair number of e-mails to that account.

Post Re: TLG 8127 Rune Lore (Preorder)
Went through page 18 today.

Page 15, pretty sure in "sibsidary guild" your supposed to spell that as "subsidiary guild".

Page 16, second full paragraph, "...they Confessor Knights hunted...", pretty sure "they" is supposed to just be "the".

third paragraph, "These secreted...hiding...hid themselves away." I am pretty sure having a group or individual being described as doing the same action, even if it is with 3 different words, in the same sentence, even a long one, still breaks a rule or two.

Page 17. 3rd paragraph, "...may be lost or forgotten by other rune spells or even powerful wizard spells such as mind blank." First, I am not sure what your getting at with forgetting runes because of, or "by", other rune spells. I assume you mean other rune spells that has as part of their effect to force a rune mark to forget a rune. Also, Mind Blank is the proper name of a spell, and should be capitalized. Second, it protects the caster from detection/scrying, it does not wipe a mind. Unless you have a new version in this book that I have yet to read that does wipe minds. If so, you have a spell in the PH and a rune in this book of the same name.

Second column, first paragraph, "Once are rune mark has..." I think "are" is meant to be "the".

Page 18, under "Daily Usage", 2nd paragraph, "...cannot wield two fire runes at he same time." "he" should be "the".

Same paragraph, "A static rune can be used simultaneously, two static fire runes." Something is missing here. Maybe, "such as two static fire runes"?
Same paragraph, "menaing the rune mark can...", "meaning" is mis-spelled.

OK, I am done for the night.

Yes! I've actually spent several months slowly eradicating all the damn spam that was going to that account. The only thing I get now is a daily burst of spam from French companies. I don't speak French so I suspect when I try to unsubscribe I'm not doing it right hahaaha

But please send them to that email, that way i can burn them off and plug em in.

I will, just putting them here to let others know what I have already looked at so they will hopefully look at other sections, so we can collaborate and not repeat each others work, only double check it.

Good call on the not duplicating our efforts.

I sent an email to Steve noting two things immediately... these were:

Page 61 ... the Tier V table: Names of creatures should be in bold to match the other tables.
Page 144 ... the OGL: Under section 15 when listing Rune Lore, the attribution to the author as Brian Young.

I will be giving a better read through towards the weekend buy maybe I will focus on a different section entirely to get the most coverage. I will post anything I find here once I've emailed anything I find to Steve.
