I agree Andrew terms would be better in general but I was hoping we could
just go back to table 1.1 from 1.0 so we are not stuck with 13 feet of water
an hour.
Maybe we mighty get it sorted into terms and passed into the rules for the
next rulebook in 2008 if we all work hard on it ;-)

  Converting most entries (0 to 5 mm per hour) to inches will give tiny or
silly fractions. Only storm conditions will have a number > 1/4 inch per
hour.

  There is flavour, and then playability. The terms "shower", "rain,
"torrential", etc can be used by characters, and the mm/hour figure used by
GMs to help any required water table calculations.

  Which reminds me - why do we need these figures at all?

I hadn't realised how ugly the inches figures were.
If those that think they add flavour can produce something that looks
presentable, then I'll consider including them.
 
I think the mm/hr could be useful to some players/GMs (more so than just
inches figures).

Inches are traditionally subdivided into 3 barleycorns (not perhaps so much
use here) and also into 12 lines... making 1mm approx 1/2 a line...   :-)

Perhaps convert them to inches per day (1 mm/hr is approximately 1 inch 
/ day)

Or change the heading to "mm/hr or inches/day"?

RE: [dq] RULEBOOK FIX - Weather chart in Air collegeI donít mean to rain on
the parade with 13 feet of water...

Lets just put it in as the table that was voted on and fix it next time. I
was hoping for a quick move from a mistaken table 1.0 to table 1.1

I think both are good but I think 1.1 Weather table came with mm/hour and I
dont want to talk about forever.
I want to quickly get thru as per the 1.1 table without 13 feet of water and
then quickly get onto all the 'fix's to the rulebook' as you request them
Errol.

So table 1.1 is mm/hour so keep it that way and move on.
Fix it for next issue.

Jono

I'm with Jono on this one.

This was a SIMPLE change that didn't even require much thought.

The debate has whittered on about imperial measure and flavour, with asides into
arcane areas of avoirdupois measure and into worries about fractions.

Does anyone objects to table 1.1 being included in the damned rulebook (and just
forget about the bloody which measurement system is to be used)? If they don't,
can we just GET ON WITH IT.

Jesus.

1.1 should be there, put it there.
It got put in in mm, in the first place, maybe its because there is no nice
simple conversion.

From reading back over the thread it appears that no-one is objecting to
version 1.1 of the table. There seems no debate over this -- it is a
non-issue, It should go ahead and be included.

Several  people have additionally asked that the metric measurements on it
are either changed to imperial (as consistent with the rest of the weights
and measures in the game), or that both metric and imperial appear.

So, either v1.1 goes in as is, or, if the editors have time and energy, it
gets its measurements seen to.

Either way the table is presumably in, and concern (and "shouting") seems
misplaced.

Cheers,
Martin

I'd really like the inclusion of metric. For all that the flavour is more
preserved with imperial whenever maths is needed imperial is awful.
