Volume 1
Page 5, along with the Griffin GRF-3N Record Sheet.

Error: The written layout for the variant and the record sheet have conflicting locations for the placements of four of the jump jets (side torsos vs legs).

Correction: Place the jump jets in the side torsos on the record sheet.

Volume 2

Page 10, “In an act of sheer cheek, Jaime Wolf snuck a Stone Rhino into his Dragoons when they departed for the Inner Sphere, knowing full well it would stand out.”

This is 100% wrong and somehow slipped through without required changes. Will post corrected text and upload a new PDF when able.

Volume 2
Zeus write-up on page 13 and Zeus record sheet.

Write-up claims: "...mating  the  Sphere-made  Artemis  FCS  onto  the  ClanTech launcher..."
Record sheet shows a Clan-made Artemis system.

Fix: Correct one or the other. Tonnage is the same either way, it's just important for campaign stuff.

Volume 2

Also the TRO Entry itself for the Stone Rhino/Behemoth in Recognition Guide: ilClan vol 2, pg 11*(with the illustration), shows the 2 tons of Gauss Ammo that should be in the RT (and are correctly shown on the RS) as being in the CT.  Since it already has a Jump Jet in the CT, this clearly cannot be so.

Fix: Change Location of Gauss Ammo from CT to RT, on page 11 of TRO.

Volume 2

possible fluff error with dates in the "Notable Pilots" Section for the Ostscout, pg 6 under Lem Pureliff*.

Reads that the repairs to his Ostscout served him well in the FedCom Civil War, but then immediately follows that he retired from Stinging Barflies in 3063.  While the 10th Lyran Regulars did declare for Victor in that year, there were no opposing military forces on Cavenaugh II at that time.

So it seems unlikely he would have seen any action to make use of his repaired sensors before his retirement in 3063**.  It seems more likely he would have retired at a later date, especially since having declared for Victor he would have been viewed as a traitor to the FedCom if he left the relative protection of the 10th Guard before the Civil War ended.

Fix: Change date of retirement to later year, probably 3067.

Sources:
*Recognition Guide: ilClan vol 2, pg 6.
**FedCom Civil War (sourcebook), pp. 84, 144

Page 7 under notable pilots Kelvin Howe. The first sentence reads "The latest in his family to serve in the Davion Light Guards"  The last sentence reads
"Howe's attitude is unsurprisingly not a good fit for the First"

It is unclear if he has served with the Light Guards or the 1st Guards (or both)

Volume 3:

Page 12, Notable MechWarrior Evgeniy:
"Evgeniy is one of three warriors to graduate from the
first sibko raised from the genes of Phelan Kell."

Per Bred for War, Phelan resolved to wait to create sibkos with his DNA until Ranna was eligible (by earning a bloodname, which she did before her death back in 3077).  The idea that for some reason the exile Wolves (including Phelan, who only died decades later) waited until the Dark Ages to start a sibko featuring the DNA of his dead beloved is not impossible, but does not seem to hold.  Unless the Evgeniy entry is set in an older period, but that would be odd since the TRO is modern.

This was debated in development. It's odd, and there's a story there eventually, but this is not errata.

...and expendable design. (Claims that the SLDF classified the Wasp as a “unit of ammunition” rather than a BattleMech in its logistics systems are, however, wholly untrue).

Either the period after "design" needs to be removed, or else the period after the closing bracket needs to be within the bracket.
