Does anyone know of a consolidated set of errata for the original E.P.T. rules? I've read Barker's "Seal of the Imperium" in Dragon 11, but most of that deals with additional information, not clearing up confusions. It also hints that he had done such a column before ("In this edition I shall carry on with the answering of questions put by players via the mails.") but I don't know where that appeared.
Thanks. I've come on a few things that are obvious typos, etc., but it's usually clear what the right answer is. For example, in the list of priest occupational skills in section 430, 'cure serious wounds' is left out but this is an obvious mistake--'cure serious wounds' is listed among the priest skills in 432. No problem correcting that. As you say, the more difficult situation is when the language isn't entirely clear. For instance, I'm not entirely sure which spells require you to make a 'to hit' roll in section 720. The basic distinction seems to be between spells which are aimed at a single target and those that have a wider area of effect. But the rules also talk about 'whether or not the magicians' weapon scores a hit'. Also, it seems rather odd that armor should protect you against spells like 'Fear,' 'Madness,' or 'Plague'. OTOH the use of the 'to hit' table makes a good deal of sense when, say, telekinesis is used to whisk a rock towards a target.
