Not really a rules question, but I noticed an oddity on chart "[E1] Encounter Chart" when I rolled a Lifeguard mission while playing last night.

The two non-regional encounter columns ("Additional Round of Combat" and "Special Mission") have a die roll entry labeled "2 or less" which is unique among these types of charts (all of the others are simply labeled "2"). This struck me as odd because the only drm for this chart is +1 for 1942-1943 for additional rounds of combat, making anything less than 2 impossible and even an actual (modified) dice roll of 2 impossible in those two years.

I'm wondering if the drm was meant to be -1 in 1941-1942. I couldn't find any errata on this so maybe it is as intended but it still seems odd. Any thoughts?

[edit: changed the referenced date range per the correction identified below]

Hey Dave,

You're absolutely right, the 42/43 drm should be a -1 instead of a +1.

Can't believe nobody's picked up on that before...including us. Doh. Consider that part of the official errata until we update it (haven't had any in months now.)

Nice to get a fast response from the designer - thanks! I suspect that the superscripted 1 on the 12 die roll on the Special Mission column of the same chart may also be an error. According to 7.4.8 random events don't occur in the mission travel box and I don't believe that column is used elsewhere.

Btw, I really enjoy the game. It brings me back to playing B-17 when I was stationed in Germany in the '80s.

OK, now I'm confused. You guys keep talking about the modifier 42/43. But All I see on the chart is the +1 modifier for 41/42 ?

Heh - yeah, I fat-fingered the dates. We are referring to the 1941-42 +1 (now -1) drm. I'll edit the original post to avoid confusion.
