The Shrine of Knowledge
In this section of the website you will find all of the Amendments, Errata and FAQ documents for Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, War of The Ring and the Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game. Each is presented in the form of a downloadable PDF.
Our aim is to provide one PDF for each book belonging to these systems; we are constantly working to add new documents or update existing ones as new material gets released, so you can be sure that if a book is not yet covered here we will be working to ensure that it soon is!
What Are Amendments, Errata and FAQs?
It's helpful to people's understanding of these documents that we provide a clear distinction between Errata and FAQs.
Errata provide corrections to the errors that sometimes creep into our books. It is important to note that Errata carry the same 'authority' as the main rules and permanently modify published material; where one of our books says one thing and the errata changes this to something else, the errata takes precedence as the 'correct' version of that material.
Amendments are changes made to our rules in order to make them work within a new context; the most common example would be when a new core rulebook is released which then has a knock-on effect of invalidating existing material. They are not designed to fix newly created weaknesses or shortfalls, but simply to ensure that no rule, unit, item of equipment or whatever else is left incompatible with the current edition of the game.
FAQs, or Frequently Asked Questions are grey areas, points of confusion or places where rules can and have been interpreted in conflicting ways. For each FAQ we provide the answer as determined by the Games Development team; while these are not hard and fast rules text in the same way as Errata, they should be considered the 'official' interpretation.
