Post still have typos in 7th printing
I've brought this up 44 times...but "Challange" is spelled "Challenge", not spelled "Challange" as it STILL is in 7th printing in 3 places including the TOC.

Maybe they think keeping typos is "funny" and part of the game's charm?

The main reason I didn't back the 7th printing KS is because they said they would not be addressing errata/editing issues, that it would be identical to the 6th printing.

I thought if I did the dollar backer thing and grabbed a PDF of 7th printing as an add-on, I'd get the alternate cover.
This does not seem to be the case.

I backed it, but thought I was getting the alternate as a hard cover too. I guess not...just received an email with a link to drivethrurpg.

edit: Looks like I am getting the alternate cover on both.

:lol:

Well, so much for their claim to not address any errata/typo's.

Hopefully as the Trolls are able to tap into more 5th-edition money, they can comfortably get an editor for their manuscripts.
