I'm quite a Newbie, you know.
But playing a scenario involving Paratroops me and my buddy stumbled into Vineyard. We were surprised it is not considered one of the terrains which require NMC on landing in E9.42. So we read B12.7 and no reference as well.
Fortunately I own the Pocket RB which includes Chapter F and I remembered that also in that section there is a paragraph on Vineyards (F13.6). So we went through it, just to be sure. And here it is " 5/8" parachute landing in a vineyard must immediately take a NMC as per E9.42".
Since many ASL players.....better...newbies who doesn't own WoA, or Pocket RB, have not the possibility to go through Chapter F, would it be better to add "vineyard" among the terrains in E9.42?
Thanks and cheers all

EDIT: I'm not aware of all the erratas till know. Perhaps this was just released. In that case......

Re: Little Humble Errata proposal
I understand your concern...but that would be a tremendous undertaking.

Best thing is to have an updated Terrain chart.

Or just read the terrain that the scenario uses...
1) it keeps you familiar with the odd terrain types,
2) Most rules are now available with the pocket edition.
3) I just hate errata...most of the time...I just don't see a change in the "useable" part of the rule....LOL

Re: Little Humble Errata proposal
Thanks for pointing this out, it does sound like an errata would be in order.

The procedure for this is to post on GameSquad here:

http://www.gamesquad.com/forums/index.php?forums/asl-rules-e...

If it is accepted it will be published in the next Journal.

We've all given up hope that MMP will actually manage to one day publish a rulebook with incorporated errata.

Re: Little Humble Errata proposal
Little Humble Thread proposal:

Edit your OP's vague subject to something more specific and clear and helpful for future forum readers.

E.g. "Errata proposal: E9.42 Vineyard should require NMC on landing" or some such.

Thanks Russ, suggestion followed.

Stephen, of Course I'm talking For newbies from a newbie pow. Seasoned players probably have stepped into this several times and already solved it with a pencil mark....that actually is enough!

Errata for this has already been published in ASL Journal 11.

E9.42: line 2, replace “cactus hedge” with “vineyard”.

Thanks For pointing, Klas!
Sorry!
Although I hope this thread could be useful to point some newbie in the right direction in the future as well.
