Companion Horrors Errata/Questions

Post by gortatrien » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:09 pm

Continuing to work my way through the Companion

Shouldn't the there be a section header of Horror Constructs for the creatures starting with Boneless? All of the creatures listed from Boneless to the Common Horrors section are horror constructs.

As a matter of consistency, shouldn't the Undead Horror Construct power be applied to more constructs from both the GMG and the EDC?
Bone Shambler (GMG)
Cadaver Man (GMG)
Ghoul (GMG)
Ghoul Leader (GMG)
Spectral Dancer(GMG)
Deathless Reaver (EDC)
Dil'Kava (EDC)
all Erhlgren (EDC)
Flesh Beast (EDC)
Pestilent Ghoul (EDC)
Spectral Child (EDC)

As a matter of consistency, shouldn't the Physical Nature power be applied to horrors from the GMG?
Baggi (GMG)
Bloatform (GMG)
Crystal Entity (GMG)
Deceiver (GMG)
Despairthought (GMG)
Doppler (GMG)
Dread Iota (GMG)
Gharmek (GMG)
Gnasher (GMG)
Mindslug (GMG)
Scurrier (GMG)
Slipshade (GMG)
Wingflayer (GMG)
Wormskull (GMG)

Shadows
Are Shadows Undead?
What is the movement of Shadows?

Not all undead are Horror constructs and not all Horror constructs are undead. Of the list, only dil'kava should have "Undead Horror Construct".

That level of clarification is unnecessary as a Horror's nature is generally evident. The tags were added in the Companion as a convenience at the time.

Shadows are Horror constructs, not undead, and their Movement Rate is 12.

I understand that not all undead are horror constructs and vice versa, but I'm confused why some of the others aren't considered undead horror constructs.
Bone Shambler (GMG) - is in the horror constructs section and listed as being an undead construct made from the bones of Horror victims.
Cadaver Man (GMG) - is in the horror constructs section and is listed as being an undead minions of horrors. Also since the dil'kava is a special kind of cadaver man and should have the 'Undead Horror Construct' power, doesn't this point to cadaver men also having that power.
Ghoul (GMG) - is in the horror constructs section and are describe as another undead construct of the horrors.
Ghoul Leader (GMG) - see ghoul
Spectral Dancer(GMG) - is in the horror construction section and is described as an undead construct.
Deathless Reaver (EDC) - described as being both a skeleton and created by horrors. Are these not undead?
all Erhlgren (EDC) - specifically described as undead horror constructs.
Flesh Beast (EDC) - described as an animated corpse created by horrors. Are these not undead?
Pestilent Ghoul (EDC) - see now that these aren't created by Horrors. Maybe shouldn't have been in the Horrors chapter...
Spectral Child (EDC) - are specifically described as undead constructs created from children who fell under the sway of horrors.
That level of clarification is unnecessary as a Horror's nature is generally evident. The tags were added in the Companion as a convenience at the time.
I was just mentioning this as a matter of consistency. When things are labeled differently between books it can be confusing.

Thanks for the clarification on shadows.
