Error in Holdings Example?
« on: March 31, 2012, 09:57:30 PM »
The math on the Holdings described on pages 259-261 of the book don't add up. 

Uncle's holding starts with a Surplus: 1-barter from the default gigs.  He adds:
-Large which gives Surplus: +1barter 
-Lucrative Raiding which gives Surplus: +1barter
-Bustling Public Market which gives Surplus: +1barter

The example indicates he ends up with a total of Surplus: 3-barter, shouldn't it be 4-barter

Marie's holding starts with a Surplus: 1-barter from the default gigs.  She adds:
-Decadent and Perverse which gives Surplus: -1barter 

The example indicates she ends up with a total of Surplus: 1-barter, shouldn't it be 0-barter
