You're welcome.

For everybody else:
Errata-updated PDFs of the three core books (Player's Guide, Gamemaster's Guide, and Companion) are available through our web shop and DriveThru -- if you didn't get a notification about the update, you can go to the relevant place you bought your PDF and download the updated version.

I bought the bundle pack at FASA store but I'm not seeing the link to updated PDFs, just quick repurchase option. (I didn't received a notification either)

Let me ask about that. I don't handle the store, so there might be something different that needs to be done with that to update/send out notifications.

Oh no!

Player's Guide and Gamemaster's Guide don't have updated layout to fit with Companion (grey page background?) :(

From what I understand, there's a limit to what we can do for updates with regard to the printer -- too many changes and it's charged not as a "second printing" but a first-run.

I understand, but... when you buy the second (actually a third) whole core book set (deluxe edition!) you're counting they will look as a set not only from the outside but from the inside too.

It shouldn't be "a second print with fixed binding, errata and new cover" but the deluxe edition and, to be honest, I won't easily believe that printer allowed different binding, new covers, but disallowed Companion's style page background. Probably they asked more money for it which is understandable, but hey - it's a deluxe version not just a reprint...

I'll check, but I can't make any promises.

Edit: Disregard! We reached out to the printer and they haven't started on the GM Guide guts yet. So I'm going to get backgrounds dropped in on both that and the Player's Guide.

(Old message preserved for clarity.)

I had a word with the boss man earlier this evening, and the "guts" for the new hardcovers of the GM Guide are already in production -- we had to do a second run of the softcovers for that book, and delivered that earlier this summer. (To save print costs, all of the interiors are printed at the same time, and are then just bound differently.)

This means that book won't have the background (even if we do it for the new Player's Guide hardcover). Lesson learned, but we'll know to do it if we go back for more printing.

If you bought the PDF through our web shop, go into My Account (it's in the upper left corner), find the order with the bundle or PDF (you might need to click on "Show All Orders"), and that will have the download link to the PDF.
