PDF.

This could be errata, this could be an Easter Egg, but p. 15, "Worlds for the Taking," is full of non-visible Latin

PDF
p. 17,  Sidebar

"The LAAF made damn sure..."

Change to LCAF, unless the writers wanted Brewer to intentionally misspeak for some reason I can't quite figure out.

p. 120 - Random Assignment Tables, Aerospace, Lyran Commonwealth

Add asterixes to the Sternensturm at 13 and 15 on the light table to denote that it is an OmniFighters.

LAAF is correct.  Per "Operation Audacity," The Rock was built in the 3060s, when the Lyrans were using the LAAF designation.

pg 83: First Tamar Jaegers "...though this situation will change as new recruits from Melissia and the surrounding worlds swell their ranks..."

Problem: Melissia is in the Vesper Marches, not the Tamar Pact
Solution: Replace Melissia with Arcturus

pg 117 Lyran Light BattleMechs, result 17 shows the BZK-G2 Hollander.  This 'Mech does not exist on the MUL, although I believe that it's the Light Gauss variant mentioned in the TRO that has never had a Record Sheet.
Solution, Change to BZK-G1

pg 117 Lyran Assault BattleMechs, result 18 shows Mad Cat Mk II [100].  The Mad cat Mk II is a 90t 'Mech
Solution, change [100] to [90]

pg 117 Periphery Assault BattleMechs, result 16 shows the GOL-3M2, with no name.
Solution, add Goliath after 3M2

PDF Product ID is E-CAT35902 which was also used for IlClan. There is currently no E-CAT35901 so maybe IlClan is the wrongly identified one.

Page 87.  "Within the reborn Falcons, comparisons to Aiden Pryde already abound. Of course, Aiden Pryde died in a blaze of glory"

Correct spelling is Aidan

PDF, page 49, first line under "Absorption and Mergers."

"As December closed, feelers that Syndic Marean had sent..."

Marena not Marean.

Jiyi Christu is described as being a weapon specialist with the ER PPC... problem is, his mech is Gryfalcon (confirmed to still be piloting it, on Tamar Rising p 54)
Obviously he could be piloting a custom Gyrfalcon, but I think it's most likely this was intended to be weapon specialist ER Large Laser

Page 94, Marena, start of the 4th line of 2nd paragraph

"scrambling to keep the Clan soluble"

Problem: Unless she really does want to dissolve the Jade Falcons in water, that's the wrong word.
Solution: replace with solvent, (having the assets necessary to continue.)

On pg112 under the Steady SPA, it might be worth noting how to round, up/down/normally.

Page 127, the third paragraph of the example box regarding Raj's Hussars begins "That places them smack dab in the middle of Malthus Confederation-controlled space." Per the map's Legend on the poster map, the Malthus Confederation controls only Dustball directly (which the route does not visit), and the planets noted in the example route (Denzili, Baker 3, Antares, Morges, and Esteros) are all independent, unclaimed, or otherwise unspecified in status.

Solution: Replace the words "smack dab in the middle of Malthus Confederation-controlled space" with "deep within unclaimed space."

The unclaimed worlds are noted in the body text as tithing resources and “volunteer labor levies” in exchange for Confederation protection, so, yes, that is where the Confederation has the most influence, just without running their flag up a pole about it.

Yes, true, but that’s not what the text intended. This is indeed errata.

Page 5.  Epigraph at the start of "By the Sword" identifies Arc-Royal as being in the Lyran Commonwealth.  It's still technically part of the Jade Falcon OZ until the end of the battle.
"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo!

Page 20, in the "Assimilation - A Light Touch with Deep Roots" section:

"This was not the case with worlds annexed by the Clans since the Jade Falcons’ aggressive slip faction took control from the traditionalist jesses in the Rending and instituted their Mongol Doctrine."

In previous sources (e.g. Era Report: 3145, A Rending of Falcons) Slips and Jesses were capitalized.

Page 29.

The Tamar Pack task force which went to Pandora on 23 December 3151 is, during the batchall with Star Colonel Sage, alternatively referred to as being under the command of Jeremy Cox and Kritsada Sirisopa.

For example -

"Colonel Jeremy Cox’s task force entered the Pandora system ... Sirisopa needed to gather the Jade Falcons in one place, so rather than launch an invasion he broadcast a Trial of Possession ... Star Colonel Sage informed Sirisopa that to land on Pandora was death ... Colonel Cox anticipated this kind of reply ... He wisely tried to bid Cox down to a small battle, but Cox refused" etc.

Solution - Correct the names to be consistent, presumably deleting the references to Sirisopa, since his 1st Tamar Jaegers were not present on Pandora at that time (only the 2nd and 3rd Tamar, plus the Twenty-First Centauri Lancers).

Page 78, the Lyran Commonwealth faction page, bottom left:

"But the LIC has long been relied upon to make up for the shortcomings of the LCAF, and their class is no barrier to position and the unconventional can flourish: results matter."

From the context it seems as though "their class is no barrier to position" should be "there class is no barrier to position".
All Clan totems are equal but some are more equal than others

"They do not understand that defacing or destroying a monument does not change history. In fact, it often ends up reinforcing that history. Rewriting the history books to impose a new social order rarely works in the long term."
