4th printing errata

Not sure if I should put this here or elsewhere: To add to the 4th printing errata: Page 48, under Worn and Capacity objects. Both the old wording and new wording (as per previous errata btw) made it in the book. First paragraph: Quote: As such, load-bearing items (such as backpacks, sack, chests, e...

Official list of changes (PHB 4th) ?

<t>Is there going to be an official list of changes between the 4th printing of the Players' Handbook and previous editions? As the Trolls say "This is our fourth printing and represents the first real substantive changes to the game . . . " And it's true. Now that I have the soft cover, I wonder wh...

Can't you put a link in the badge/logo image at the top of the board that points to the web site? Other board systems allow that.
