Re: Kickstarter Proof Reviews Here

I took the liberty of comparing the version of The Dunwich Horror to the one on hplovecraft.com, and found the following differences: The text from the PDF is on the left hand side and the text from hplovecraft.com is on the right hand side. Inv. Hdbk., Page 22: "seemed to inflict the visible cattle...

Re: Kickstarter Proof Reviews Here

Investigator's Handbook, pages 51 and 103: The side bar "Living standards" is pretty much duplicated here, but with the following differences: [*] Page 51 lacks the intro that page 103 has. [*] Page 103 does not set "Accommodation" and "Travel" in bold. [*] Page 103 does not set "Credit Rating 99: S...

Investigator's Handbook, Page 92: There may be some definition of executive of which I am unaware, but to me it seems very strange to give clerks and executives the same attributes, especially credit rating?

Investigator's Handbook: Page 69, Doctor of Medicine is listed with "see Psychiatrist", however unlike all other entries with a "see" reference, it has it's own sub-section on page 77-78.

Re: MUP Intro translation project

Sorry Magnus, but not a single program I have will play that file. Make sure it plays on your end, and then try saving it as an MP3 or WAV. I'm looking forward to hearing it! That's weird.
