I found another error in the Super Heroes Companion 2nd Ed. The description for the Deflect Modifier for Parry is the description for the Summonable Modifier for Minions.

This was emailed to our support address, so I'm posting it here on behalf of the user;


I am using Savage Worlds Deluxe in Hero Lab, updated and licensed, and I have a problem.

Character has Hindrances, one of which affects the Charisma calculation.

On the Advances tab, Buying Off Hindrance seems to be text-only, with no impact on the Hindrance list or calculations.

The Print Preview does not show anything reflecting the Buy-off, and the penalty is still applied.

Deleting the Hindrance directly creates a Resource Overspent error on the Edge tab, but does undo the Charisma penalty, as expected.

How can I really buy-off Hindrances?

Thanks for your help,

Rest Well,

You need to replace the Hindrance with the -Buy Off- Hindrance to make up that difference. Unlock Character Creation mode, delete the bought off Hindrance, then replace it with -Buy Off-, select the severity, and re-lock the character.
Next update, I'll see if I can smooth that process out a bit.

I mentioned this in a thread a couple weeks back, but thought I should post it here: AutoAdd does not seem to work when its on something you add as an advance. It gives the message that its autoadding an item, but doesn't actually do it.

I'm trying to add a hindrance in the run of play (after character creation) as a result of someone gaining a permanent phobia from a fear check.

I *can* add an edge by:
- go to Personal
- add an edge as a Permanent Adjustment
- go to Advances
- unlock Character Creation
- go to Edges (which shows I have an edge to spend)
- add the Edge
- go to Advances
- lock Character Creation

I *cannot* do the same for Hindrances
- go to Personal
- add a Hindrance (Minor) as a Permanent Adjustment
- go to Advances
- unlock Character Creation
- go to Edges (which does not show any mention of hindrances to fulfill)
- add Hindrance (Minor)
!- system requires me to balance the hindrance with rewards

Not sure if I'm missing something but couldn't find anywhere else to plug that new hindrance in.

Thank you!

To add a Hindrance simply go to the Advancement tab and add a new Advance, but select Hindrance (or even Permanent Injury when that is more appropriate) instead.
