I don't understand why such a small font was used for the rules. I see great big open white space on the rules pages!

And it would have been nice to have the tables and information on a single page.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

Agreed on both counts.

For the upcoming game on Shiloh I will pass this along to the graphics designers. The next game, which will be on Shiloh, will not be a magazine game.

By the way, errata was just now uploaded so keep your eyes peeled.

I understand your concern, but it is the same font used throughout the magazine.

I'm not fond of the font throughout.

It seems like most other game zines are in small font mode too. I'm aging!

I concur. A larger font would be GREAT. Even a single point would be an improvement.

It is my greatest problem with magazines these days. Yes, I have a magnifying glass, but that is not the best solution for me.

Defending a "mistake" by pointing out another "mistake" is not helping you make you point. I say this as a loyal supporter who is tired of "squinting and resting".
