If there's one thing that's true about the hobby gaming community, it's that some people get a little weird about their dice.

You don't know your audience if you don't know about dice karma. ;) Superstitions are strong!

Thanks to the industrious Blorf, revision 0.93 is now uploaded and available for download.

Two things:
- Text spread has been kept at "justified". Personal preference.
- The deployment graphic has not been updated yet because ... I got something going on on that front. ;)

Sounds good and glad to help.

Though I don't know how so many people can stand such ugly spacing. :P A wise man once said: "if you hate someone, teach them about kerning."

I agree with Blorf about "Direct fire range" instead of "8 units" when talking about distances, because of the larger or smaller table sizes. It's still mentioned that way on p.13 and on the picture on p.21.
Also on p.21 all the sub index are on top of the circles, what makes them hard to read. Maybe bigger circles, or just different colours for every player and a big number inside that coloured circle makes it clearer.

PS. Sorry if I made any mistake trying to point yours as English is not my native language.

Thanks for spotting that slip-up on page 8, it eluded both Blorf and me when scanning for that. Page 21 you can ignore, that graphic will be replaced totally. I got something planned. It's only in there as a temporary placeholder.

Your assistance is appreciated. :)

Haven't re-proofed it, but saw a couple items.

- Looks like we also missed the multiplication symbols on p6 (dice assortment).

- In addition to p13 and p21 that Gutbon called out, there's also still "8 units" on p7 under the "spotting" table. You mentioned p8 yourself; I see it in the ranged tables and the diagram at the bottom. Also p9, SSR table. (Maybe add a clarification on free green d8 and SSRs just below here, too, as the question gets asked a lot).

Revision 0.94 of MFZ:Condensed is uploaded and link in the OP. It's only half-designed, and some elements are left out because still under construction. This is mostly a text-update, removing some odd spacing, wrongly placed commas, the work. You know how it goes. I'm pushing this out so that's off of my back and out there for proofing, and also since I won't have that much time the weekend to get much work in - at least I think that's the case.

Thanks again to Blorf and Gutbon for helping out here.,

PS: I corrected the multiplication symbol in my basefile, but after the upload. It no longer reads, for example, "1x green d8", but "1 × green d8".

Observation on read through:

PDF Page 6: Scale And size restricitons.

Paragraph 2: Sentance one:

As loose rule of thumb, frames should
generally fit inside a box that is 10 studs
wide, 10 studs deep and 12 bricks tall.


(Emphasis added)

Should this read plates? I mean it's technically true, but that seems like a very very tall robot.

Thanks for condensing this.

No, it's bricks. 12 plates would be 4 bricks tall.
