comment Code review: Tables on a page
@cfr: This was my first LaTeX project, and I had to make many things up as I went along. I didn't always go back to rectify "cosmetic" issues (like width of an utterly unused margin). Also, I am using many KOMA-Script features elsewhere in the document, just not in this context.

Yes, that's I.C.E.'s Campaign Law translated to German. Actually, that's the whole Rolemaster 2nd Ed. re-edited and translated to German. Sorry, I did not get permission to distribute. Yes, I asked. ;-)

comment Code review: Tables on a page
@cfr: As a quick explanation, this is a translation / editing work, for which I wanted to emulate the look of the original. That is why I tried to point out the parts that were puzzling me; in previous questions, I often got comments regarding the typographic / layouting "sins" involved, and tried to clarify that cramped fontsize, two-column layout, vertical lines in the tables etc. weren't the issue, just the placement of the tables. Sorry that I didn't express myself better.

@barbarabeeton: A \noindent in front of the first \tabularhtx does not change the output at all. A \noindent in front of the \table breaks the output by giving an empty first page, and all tables on the next page -- again, without fixing any of the offset problems...

comment How to force multiple tables onto a single page?
I cannot believe I missed out on the [p] positional specifier. It indeed did the trick just like that. Feel welcome to turn that into an answer.
