  1. Was just re-reading this excellent issue and have a question on page 4:

    “The thief has eight skills and all of these
    start at 1 in 6 chance of success.”

    The following table as well as the OSE book show 7 thief skills. Is there an 8th or is this a miscount?

    1. Oh, nice pickup. Yeah, that is a typo. It should be seven, not eight. And I am super glad you are enjoying it. 🙂

  2. Is it possible to get ALL printed issues in a bundle? I’m in the US, so I’d rather do one package.

    1. Hi Michael

      It is possible. Contact me via saankiip at gmail dot com and I can let you know a price based on where you are.
