Thanks, Amorkca.

 

And yes.....  I am this evening rather disappointed in the quality of my work prior to letting other folks see it.

 

Considering how many weeks were little more than cleaning art and getting rid of noise, I seem to have left an awful lot of it still in there.... :(

I may (will have to talk to Jason to get the go-ahead), clean up contextual errors and the like, but my plan at the moment is to leave typos alone, as they were part of the original publication. 

 

Go ahead and note such things, and I'll take a look at them and then decide. 

 

Thank you for the attentiveness to detail!

oh--

 

And yes: we are correcting _everything_, including faded or blurred text, run-together words or letters, etc.  Typos and grammar-- well, I will have to wait until I hear back from Jason: don't want to change the actual original without express permission to do so.  Even if we're doing it for the right reasons, it's not our original work or copyright to be making actual content changes without permission.

 

To be fair, probably won't be able to correct the issues in the adventure module simply because I have no way of finding out what the original intention of the author was: are they armed and inseparable, or will the hired man run first chance?  What exactly _is_ the dog's name?  That sort of thing.   Unless someone knows how to contact the author, those will have to stay. :(

Just to toss in my nickel: Collecting all the known typos together into an errata file which is then made available in conjunction with the final PDF would be entirely acceptable.  Sure, it would be nice in theory for the scans to be revised to eliminate them, but for reasons of resulting workload as well as historical "this is how it was published" authenticity, an errata file would probably be best.  (IMO, etc.)

So, I’m wondering if it would work for me to just use the highlighter tool in my PDF reader to visually point to the errors rather than type all that text? It would be a huge time saver. I could give you a link to my file, and you could check on the updates periodically.

Whew! I've got pages 168 to the end finished. Some of them are really, really cluttered and took quite some time. There's no way I could have listed everything in the standard format you guys are using. America, if you'd like a link to the file I'm working on to see what I've done, send me your email address. I'll message it to you. Duke, let me know what you think of what I've done and if it's at all useful to you.

Break time in the youth group game; I've got about fifteen minutes to check in:

 

Brian, take the time you need.  I myself was out of work the first three days this week: contracted flu over the weekend.  I also see your autocorrect does the same thing to Amorkca's name that mine does. ;)

 

Amorkca, you've been pulling all of our weight; I am both ashamed and very grateful.  I hope this weekend to get the list in the first post updated, and delete out those things which I have addressed. Brian's will be a little trickier, because of the way he is doing it, but I _will_ get it done. :lol:

 

Gotta run; I want to check a couple threads before "potty break" is over. :lol:

 

Bonus:  We are at the "Exciting Conclusion" point of our short campaign, and everyone is riveted so far.  We just _may_ get a couple of new RPG fans out of all this.  :D

Yeah, sorry, I don't mean to make things difficult for you, but there's no way I could list all the things I'm finding. There's dozens per page, and it's not alway easy to describe what or where the problem is. I figured just pointing at each blip is easier. And they may not all be worth doing--it's up to your discretion to decide, obviously, but at least it narrows things down for you a bit.

Oh no:

 

They are all worth doing.  That was the point. 

 

Just heard back from Jason.  We have permission to make "whatever changes you deem necessary." 

 

I don't want to change the original book.  But damaged or badly-pressed letters, deformed characters, etc.  Those will be considered.  Spelling errors, etc: they will remain. I do not wish to change what was actually printed,  only what prevents it from being as clean and clear as is possible.

My OCD is unhappy with you... ?

I understand--

 

I'm not OCD, and I confess I _tumbled_ for joy (spiritually; I've been far too abusive to this body during it's life to attempt it in reality) at the thought of being able to correct everything that was wrong in the original text---

 

but then I remembered my original mission: this is _not_ my book.  This is someone else's book, and it's a book I loved enough that I want to make sure it's around for as long as possible for other people to enjoy.  To that end, the only "corrections" I want to make to the actual book itself are issues that affect actually reading it: I want to preserve the actual reading experience-- warts and all, I'm afraid-- as much as possible.

 

However, someone upthread suggested creating an "errata" sheet to include at the end of the text.  To that end, continue to find the ticks, and we will incorporate the corrections in that way.  

 

Except for the out-of-order pages.  There is no way that the original author could have possibly not wanted that corrected.  I mean, that's not even messing with his words or his intentions; it's just putting them in the order in which he wrote them.

 

 

Duke
