Master Ed. “Hero Essentials” Table needs update


#1

I searched for a post on this and could not find one, so apologies if I missed it and this has been mentioned.

On page 376, the d20 “Alfheim Hero” table references 2E races (small folk, hill folk) and classes (commander, leader, archer, guardian) that have been edited out of the Master Edition. This might be confusing to players not familiar with these 2E references.


#2

I fixed this, and the D20 Gear charts for Alfheim and Warp Shell! I did my best with removing references to gear that is no longer in the book, referencing it where it could be found, and doing my best with replacing those things with available items from the starting gear lists. Behold!
