Absolutely fantastic! I've only skimmed the book so far, but I'm liking what I'm seeing! Can't wait for all the art to be finalized!

Any chance of rules for an Imperial Space Fighter or creating characters for minor Clans like Dabrowski in the future?

The book is amazing! My favourite corporation finally has its book almost ready :D :D

Noticed there's no encumbrance or reliability listed for the Jet Chute. Considering how honking big it is, and how potentially deadly a corrupted jet chute is, that's probably an oversight....

The clan rules took up a lot more space than initially expected, so I did have to hold back on minor clans and significant families. It's something I'd like to cover at a later point (along with more stuff for the Wolfbanes), time permitting.

There are always more careers we could do, and we're limited more by space in each book than by anything else.

Totally understandable, Nathan, and I'm not expecting something for nothing! I'm just saying if you guys were interested in doing an expansion book that adds more character creation options for Imperial (and other Corps, naturally), I'd be more than interested in paying for it!

Another possible oversight - No gunners are listed for the Loughton Leviathan's 6 Autocannon Batteries.

I'll add it to my error report.

Ur Rune Magic, pg. 115

"Permanent: The blade is invigorating to wield, as it steals the
vigour of those it wounds. For each Dark Symmetry Icon spent when
attacking with this weapon, the wielder regains one Light Wound to
any location."

What does it mean for a Dark Symmetry Icon to be spent? Should this read per Dark Symmetry Icon rolled, or perhaps per Dark Symmetry Point spent?

It should be Dark Symmetry Icon rolled. I changed it from Momentum spent in my original draft of those rules, but apparently didn't change the text enough.

This has been added to my error log.

Under Hampshire law school, it lists:

"Equipment: Basic repair kit."

That seems sort of inappropriate.

Minor niggle.
Clan Gallagher should have a different family roll chart for the DS era than the one for the DL era. After all, back then they had a core family.

Also New Bristol seems to give a better military education than Babbage (which gives you a pistol instead) so the non elite school is better than the elite one.
And IIT and Babbage seem to give comparable educations, with the main advantage being a better piece of kit.

Under medical schools, the elite school should read "Cardinal's (Elite)"

Also, is it worth at least laming the medical schools that existed during the DS era, as there was no Cardinal or Brotherhood. Along those lines, would a DS era medical s school teach Mysticism if the art was not widely known of?

Love that you included the chance to be a Gallagher in the CharGen rules for v2, but it appears that you mistakenly swapped the era logos - the Gallaghers should be available during the Dark Symmetry era, not the Dark Legion era.

Also, should there be a note about joining Vengeance Company?

Was there a reason so many of the Iconic Careers found in this book previously were pulled? I noticed Clan Noble, Boffin, Serenity's Envoy & Juniper/Blackthorne Agent were all missing.
