Don't think I've seen these mentioned and don't actually know if I'm right on the first one:
page 158 Contests and Outcome: To determine the Outcome of a Contest between two sides, subtract the winner’s Result from the loser’s Result (again, treating the loser’s Result as a Difficulty).
Should you not rather "subtract the loser’s Result from the winner’s Result" ?
page 163 “The first side to … three successes wins the Contest” should include “get” or “gain” and actually a best of five will get you there and not a maximum of seven beats
and “The sixth Beat is a long push up steep tower stairs:” (the “a” is missing)
page 173  “to talk their outmatching opponent into surrendering” should probably be “to talk their outmatched opponent into surrendering”
THE GOLDEN RULE: Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same. [George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)]

I think the use of 'winner' and 'loser' might complicate things. Who is the 'winner' when the Results of both parties match? Why not just say, "The Outcome of a Contest is the difference between the two Results." If you're the winner, the outcome will be positive, if you're the loser, the outcome will be negative. Win or lose, it should reflect the side of the PCs. A tie works out for the PCs, as an Outcome of 0 is still a success (page 144).

Page 280 "The more charges are tapped at once, the more noticeable these changes become." should be "The more charges that are tapped at once, the more noticeable these changes become."
I think the "that" you included is not necessary (maybe even wrong?); "at once" is definitely weird there, though. Maybe "simultaneously" or "at the same time" instead?

Well, 'once' just means "one time" or "a single instance", so it could be written "at one time" or "in a single instance", which sounds correct to my (admittedly, Northwest-to-Midwest U.S.A. English) ear. Your experience may differ.

Perhaps the 'that' is unnecessary, but then I would feel obligated to remove 'are' as well, making it "The more charges tapped at once (or at a time, etc.), the more noticeable these changes become."

I don't believe this has been mentioned here so please forgive me if it has been address.

Is there a reason that the mist born in the example combate in the book (Koal) forgoes her entitled steel or iron reaction when attack with coins? I know she wants to save her action dice to attack the fleeing guard but from my understanding the dice from the reaction granted from burning steel or iron are "free" dice. Could she not roll her steel or iron rating in dice to attempt to deflect the coins with out sacrificing her action dice? I would say yes based on my understanding of the rules for reactions but is there an official ruling on this?

Thanks! The examples have been modified pretty substantially, solving this and several other issues. :)

Is there any further information about when the book is going to print and/or when the PDF will be updated?

This is from another thread earlier today.

Thanks for the assist guys. Though I can't speak for Alex, I know that was his intent. We've always made it clear that direct orders are the likeliest to arrive first, if only because - as everyone's mentioned - there are many more hands involved in getting a product into stores.

In answer to that question BTW, it's still going to be a bit. We're very close to shipping the master files to the printer now, but the printing process usually takes 4-6 weeks (sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less), and there's shipping and distribution to consider after that (usually the same stretch of time, again give or take, to get books from the printer to our fulfillment house to distributors and finally into stores).

Direct order sales will be shipped as soon as we receive the books back from the printer, which should probably shave about a month off that process (once again, give or take).

We'll keep you posted as it all comes together.
Don't follow your passion.  Take it with you.

ALL HAIL THE FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER!   Ramen.

We're done with revisions to the core product and are no longer soliciting feedback. Thanks to everyone to contributed!

You can find the latest updates for the game here and here.

Given this thread is no longer active, we're locking and archiving (unstickying) it.

Thanks again!
