[#] DH Chargen Bugfix
10:40am UTC - 5/10/2010

It's been a quiet month, site-wise. I finally fixed the Battlefield Calixis bug in the chargen and deleted characters created before January 1, 2010, removing 16,497 entries. I also parsed and compressed another 9GB of logs from the same day 'til present (goddamn do I get a fair amount of traffic).

Nothing else much to report, other than we've got a guild on Guild Wars now. Jump into #guildwars if you're interested. Writing the Eclipse Phase character generator and adding characters from Ascension and The Radical's Handbook to the Dark Heresy chargen have been on my mind, but I've been pretty busy with work and other things. I do fully intend to get these things done one day, you'll see!

I can't think of much else to report. I also need to remember to pageinate the archive, at least when you're filtering it (so it doesn't show hundreds of entries all at once); instead of showing the last month, maybe it should just show the last 50 entries. I'm not sure how I'd like to reorganize it, but it needs organization. (And yes, this will include deciding if I want to finally put Quests in another section, or maybe just have a checkbox that lets you filter out quests specifically.)

[#] DH CharGen Errata Update
10:58am UTC - 2/16/2009

So I was enjoying the shit out of Arkham Horror today and realized I'd put off updating the Dark Heresy Character Generator long enough. Really, a few hours of my time to make sure the product works, I should be ashamed of myself!

Anyway, it turns out there were only a small handful of changes, including one that made me re-fix something back to the way I'd originally had it. The errata list is here; as you can see, some changes I fixed for existing sheets, others I've left up to the players to fix. Any affected sheets are clearly marked with a note about the errata.

I've been considering going and adding the ability to advance your character to the DH chargen, but that's a massive undertaking (arguably large than the base generator itself). I'm going to look into it though, and if I'm feeling crazy I might give it a shot. I'll let you all know either way.

Nothing else to report. Random link to something awesome, random link to something extremely fucking useful.

Edity: The link for the repair kit is gone, fortunately I thought ahead and have it hosted locally. (88MB, please be mindful of my poor bandwidths ;_;)

You can't be a Noble Psyker. [citation needed] Under the actual Noble Born segment ( IH pg. 16 ) is a list of possible character paths, a Psyker is not one of them. Fantesy Flight has posted erreta about the incorrect table on pg. 20 Table 1-7 Career Paths. [citation needed] Even though I wish I could be a Noble Psyker it is just not possible. [NPOV]

Seriously now, you've emailed me twice and can't provide any verification for your claims, and apparently ignore my requests when I ask for them. I'm not going to bother FFG over something that may be working as intended.

So, does anyone know where to find this mythical Inquisitor's Handbook errata, or can anyone provide a compelling argument one way or the other regarding the conflict between the tables (especially taking into account the information at the link)?
