Hey chokehazard. Yeah, there are more than a few words that I stumble over while reading the material in various books. I had considered just making a list by page and book if only to help with correcting the pdfs. I believe one guy is writing, illustrating and just about everything else, so I can forgive a few slip ups. Also, I think he's Canadian. Maybe British/French culture alters some words and spelling; they might do things a bit different in the Land of Canad. None of the words are actually misspelled so most automatic spell checkers wouldn't register syntax/grammar. I still think it's a great game and the system is easy to run.
If I can piggy-back on your post, I do have some tongue-in-cheek issues with the art. How can someone with hook hands, for instance, lace up their boots or put on armor? This could easily be explained away by "someone helped them get dressed"; OK. I'm not saying I could make the game and there's no way I could do the art. It just sticks in my mind at first glance.
The following is just my take on the concepts. My post is based on bad physics further gunked up with years of sci-fi gaming, books, movies and even radio(!), written more for drama than a firm grasp of reality.

Ha! Yes, mutants lacking hands have other issues other than tying up shoes or doing buttons, where a comrade would be enlisted to help with such tasks, but what about visits to the outhouse? How does a guy with hooks wipe his... you get the idea. Maybe a scene to be revisited in a story or adventure?
As for typos. They keep me up at night and I know that there are always going to be a few that slip through the cracks. The one huge advantage of indie publishing is we can update book files and re-release them to the outlets.
I'd appreciate you passing along any typos you might find, although there would be some overlap with other people finding the same errors, or in older editions being out in circulation that have long since been updated.
Yes, I do most of the writing and art, but there are a lot of other people involved and upcoming products will have more freelancer input. Play testers and volunteer readers, however, are a huge part of our process. WM
Don't let them keep you up to late. We need you to get your rest so you keep putting out amazing rgp expansions. Its really not that big of a deal for me, but i cant speak for all the grammer nazi's in the world. As long as i get the gist of what it is your trying to say then im good. One thing is for sure though, who ever puts the pants one the hook hands guy has a terrible job. When i first saw the hook hands guy my first thought was how does he do anything that requires hands but then i thought to myself he must have slaves to do his bidding. (hook hands guy says) "come on steve you know what time it is, and make sure you wipe carfully this time!"
