DD Ref Rules V4a Compendium Errata

In November 2014 the DD Ref Rules Compendium (available on Lulu) was updated to work around some printing issues experienced by Lulu's US print partner. At this time the known V4 errata were integrated into the booklet and the version number was updated to V4a.

This page lists errata discovered since V4a has been available.


These corrections are already applied to the Ref Rules V4b Hypertext edition.
