PDF Initial Release
Page 46, Declaration of Honor

Third paragraph, second sentence: "...Huey..."  Per the style guide, the name of a Combat Vehicle is not supposed to be italicized.

Solution: Unitalicize the word.

Fifth paragraph: "...Ariel Sukorov):..."

Solution: Change to Ariel Suvorov, consistent with usage throughout the rest of the book.



Page 253, Trial of Grievance

Second sentence: "The victorin the match..."  (Underline mine.)

Solution: Should be "victor in".



Page 248, Table

Sheridan has no percentage listed for any clans.

Solution: It should probably be 100% Star Adder, like it was in 3067 and 3085.

Page 38, section entitled "The Scorpion and the Star League":

"The Light Horse fought valiantly, but ultimately failed against the superiority of the Goliath Scorpion. The light battalion that remained was taken as isorla and, with great fanfare, Khan Suvorov conducted an honorable bondsref ceremony, accepting these Inner Sphere abtakha into our Clan."

Bondsref is a form of ritual suicide designed to escape becoming a bondsman because the shame is too great. Unless Khan Suvorov or the Horsemen were being killed, using the term in that spot makes no sense. I'm honestly not sure which word was intended there, because AFAIK there's no word of the cutting of the bondcords, which I believe in the context is what was trying to be expressed.

Page 206, Expanded ProtoMech Structure and Armor Table lists the legs of 14 and 15 ton ultra quad protos as having 16 structure boxes, but with a maximum armor allocation of 28 points.  14 structure boxes would seem to fit the progression of structure in quad legs and match the maximum armor allocation.

The Lion rejoined the bandit DropShip a month later

Issue: Judging by the rest of the paragraph describing a Trojan Horse style operation and the fact that the Lion being referred to is a DropShip (and the next paragraph referring to the capture of the Bandit JumpShip), I believe that the Lion rejoined the bandit JumpShip.

Suggestion: Change DropShip to JumpShip.

According to Era Digest: Golden Century, this could be called either a Trial of Adoption or Absorption, depending on what all of the assets were taken. Not to derail this with discussion, but that may be that either one would fit, since it refers to Phelan Kell being adopted, rather than Absorbed.

Page 131, paragraph 5:

"It is akin to the philosophical theorizing by the late Twenty-third century sociologist Dr. Julie Miller. One of her key questions was how modern society would react if a man-made essential such basic electricity had suddenly been removed. At the time it was a thought exercise that spawned much debate in the Hegemony’s academic circles and was even documented on a few colony worlds."

In the late 23rd century, there was no Terran Hegemony; the Terran Alliance was not overthrown until 2316. Given the phrasing "at the time", which would seem to indicate that the debate was contemporaneous with Miller herself, the Hegemony reference would appear to be in error.

Suggested correction: change "Hegemony's" to "Alliance's".

I found a few typos:

pge 160, Military Commands: replace "Calistan" with "Castillian"

pge 167, top right: replace "Oqriq" with "Opriq"

pge 180 third last line in the second paragraph: replace "Beruben" with "Bruben"

pge 181 "... than allies the inevitably": 'the' seems superfluous

pge 193 "... decision to severe ..." imo should be "... decision to sever..."

pge 201 iATM construction rules, first bullet "... built up any ..." imo should be "... build up any ..."

pge 205 Crash-landing: "..., of if the ..." should be "..., or if the ..."

pge 229 opening vignette: "Edwin Rommel" should probably be "Erwin Rommel"

pg. 52, left text column: "The battle outshined the previous naval engagement..."
Issue: Grammar/spelling
Suggested fix: "The battle outshone the previous naval engagement..."


pg. 56, lower left column: "Nyserta, Oberon IV and Paulus Prime..."
Issue: The capital world of the Oberon Confederation was Oberon VI (not IV), though it is admittedly possible that there are several habitable worlds in the Oberon system. Later references on the next page are for Oberon VI.
Suggested fix: "Nyserta, Oberon VI and Paulus Prime..."


pg. 58, "The Scorpion Wanders" textbox, 3rd paragraph: "When the Clans 'small force of three JumpShips was suddenly accosted by an unidentified Peregrine-class WarShip."
Issues: Hyphen wrongly set one space after 'Clans' and directly ahead of 'small'; also, sentence is broken grammar-wise; a half-sentence seems to be missing.
Suggested fix: "The Clans' small force of three JumpShips was suddenly accosted by an unidentified Peregrine-class WarShip."


pg. 59, "The Momentum of Progress" textbox, 3rd paragraph ending: "the last two centuries,    ?"
Issue: Half sentence seems to be missing
Suggested fix: Add missing half-sentence.


pg. 61, "Bandit Caste: Commodus Van Houten" textbox, 2nd paragraph: "A former Clan Burrock warrior caste out in 3041"
Issue: 'caste out' should be 'cast out'
Suggested fix: Replace 'caste' with 'cast'


pg. 68, "Return of Orbital Bombardment" textbox, 4th paragraph: "The Clans hat not utilized the tactic until Turtle Bay during Operation REVIVAL."
Issue: The 1st Somerset Strikers sourcebook establishes as Canon (sidebox, pg. 20 - report to Kanrei Theodore Kurita) that Nicolai Maltus' orbital bombardment of Remus City on the planet Romulus really took place (and a similar incident is mentioned for Quarrel). I was under the impression that the orbital oblitarition of Remus City happened prior to the Turtle Bay massacre.
However, there is one marked difference: Unlike the Jaguars, who deliberately bombarded the civilians of Turtle Bay, the Jade Falcons evacuated the citizens on Quarrel and presumably did the same on Romulus prior to orbital-bombarding the cities. Perhaps this is why Turtle Bay is widely regarded as the first 'proper' case of orbital bombardment.


pg. 69, right column (The Hellion Strikes), 3rd paragraph: Bone Norman
Issue: Previously spelled as "Bone-Norman"
Suggested Fix: Spell with dash

Issue: The Dark Nebula is not a (single) system; it is a region of space containing a cloud of ionized gas and several white and red dwarf star systems and at least 17 pulsars. See BTW entry: Dark Nebula.

Possible issue page 83, possibly deliberate misinformation.
Snippet marked "SUCCESS!" is written past-tense covering events from 17 December 3071 to 0435 19 December 3071.  According to apparent date convention used in log records, the entry was made prior to those events - 17123071 seeming to be 17 December 3071.  If this is an error, easy fix is adjusting date tag to 19123071 or 20123071.  If not an error, then that's an "interesting" little incident.   ^-^

Looking through the book for the Warships, something is odd with CGS Andromeda.  She was apparently sunk ("gutted") at Huntress July 3072, pp100-101, and does not appear on the list of surviving WarShips on page 160, however does appear and defeat the Mako-class Fuchida on page 128 at Waypoint 531 - in 3073.  Was a different ship supposed to be at Waypoint 531?

Nope, she was repaired to partial functionality and then unleashed at 531. She's one of the unnamed vessels destroyed in the New Kent assault.

p. 113 'Silence of the Falcon'

Quote
Nearly half of the Horses’ worlds also went silent, as did several Wolf worlds. The sudden loss of intra-world communications was a complete shock.
Shouldn't this be inter-world communications? The whole paragraph describes the shut-down of the HPG network and affecting the worlds of the respective OZs, not the communication of each specific world.

Quote
Merchant Factor Daniel petitioned the Clan leadership to allow the merchants to assist with the Clan’s Trial of Annihilation. The Khans agreed and allowed those Trueborn warriors who wished to join the Clan Watch to pass a Trial of Position.
They allowed trueborn merchants to perform a trial of position. These were washouts, not warriors.

Suggested Solution: [...] and allowed those trueborn washouts/or/trueborn merchants who wished to join [...]

p129.
Issue: several lines before make it clear that Myers was not in charge of the mission, being dead and Rood taking the saKhan position and charge of the task force.
"Scorpion saKhanKelton Myers was killed in the trial - SK] The united Clan then voted Connor Rood as the new saKhan"
"SaKhan Rood was charged..to take a small task force"
"the Scorpions hesitated before Rood ordered to engage"
is followed by:
"and would end Myer's mission quickly".

Suggestion: "and would end Rood's mission quickly."

Initial PDF release, page 216:

Osteon OmniMech has incorrect internal structure. The center torso says it has 11 points of IntStruct, according to TechManual Master Table it should have 27 points.

Side torsos have 27, they should be 18.

Initial PDF release
Improved ATM, p.201-202

The iATM systems indicate their Type as M,C,S in the stat box on p.202. However, the text on p.201 indicates they are treated as Streak launchers - either all missiles hit or the weapon doesn't fire, no roll on the Cluster table needed.

Since iATMs aren't rolling on the Cluster table, they shouldn't be marked as Cluster weapons.

Suggested Fix: change Type to M,S in the stat box on p.202

Fusillade, p.199

Damage for this weapon is noted as 6(6) in the stat box on p.199. This weapon is available only to ProtoMechs, so AeroTech Damage is irrelevant. Further, unlike the Improved ATMs this weapon is not treated as a Streak launcher, so the Damage column should reflect use as a Cluster weapon.

Suggested Fix: change Damage to 2/Msl, C5/3 (0) in the stat box on p.199

PDF Initial Release
Page 98, Sinister Depths

The Date listed at the bottom of "Sinister Depths"
—Clan Jade Falcon Loremaster Kael Pershaw, Watch Addendum 30053072

Issue: The date listed above happened before the "Donner Bombing" even took place. In Jihad Secrets: The Blake Documents p. 36 - Bombing and Barbarism - Diana Pryde listed among the dead among the Jade Falcon delegation which occurred in 22013073.

In the Third paragraph, second sentence of Sinister Depths references the bombing: "This splinter faction has caused several of the Great Houses many problems of late, including the recent bombing on Arc-Royal that saw the death of a Star of our best warriors."

Solution: Fix the date somehow of the Watch Addendum that it appears after the 22013073 date. Or delete the part that references the bombing (since it didnt occur yet)

Initial PDF release

P. 53, column 1, first paragraph under "The Coyote Prowls"

Last sentence reads: "Seeing Khan Andrew’s play for what it truly was—a power grab—Kufahl finally had a target for his Clan’s ambitions and began plotting ways to break the burgeoning Snake Alliance."

Highlighted word has the apostrophe misplaced.

Suggested fix:  Change to  Andrews'


P. 142.  under heading "What of Strana Mechty?"

Second paragaph, third sentence:

"The Society propaganda insisted the Not-Named’s honor was manipulated and sullied by Nicholas, that the
Dhera Dun incident was a grievous Snow Raven error turned back on the purest of Clans."

All previous sources list the location of this incident as Dehra Dun.

Suggested fix.  Change spelling to Dehra Dun

Page 237 states,

while page 241 states,

If a player wishes to use additional objectives, they must be selected after setting the battlefield but before selecting options or forces.

These seem contradictory.

Print edition page 201/201. 

The rules for the iATM on page 201 list the rules level as Experimental.  The Stat block on page 202 lists the level as Advanced.

Suggested fix:  Change one to match the other, presumably the stat block on page 202 should be changed to Experimental.

Page 203. 

In the Nova CEWS rules, the rules level is listed as Experimental.  The Stat block lists the level as Advanced.

Suggested fix:  Change one to match the other, presumably the stat block should be changed to Experimental.

Quote
Born: 3019
Should read "3022".

According to Exodus Road, Trent and Russou Howell were sibkin, so they'd be the same age.

The narrator states on page 49 of Exodus Road in chapter 4 starting on 6 July 3052:
Quote
Trent felt a pressure that only a trueborn could experience. He was a Clan
warrior, but he was thirty years old.

Collected Nova CEWS Developer-level Errata:

PAGE 203
The Nova CEWS can be mounted on units with the Null Signature System and/or Chameleon Light Polarization Shield, and does not interfere with either system in any way.
The Nova CEWS generates +2 heat while active.  Units with this system that do not track heat must have enough heat sink capacity to deal with this.
Cost: 1,100,000


PAGE 208
Add the following line to the Nova's BV rules:
"In addition to their defensive battle rating Nova CEWSs add 5 percent of the total BV of all friendly units equipped with the system on the battlefield to each of the units equipped with it (but never more than 35% of the friendly force's BV overall). This effect applies regardless if the units are linked at the beginning of the game or not. There must be at least two friendly units equipped with Nova CEWS for this rule to apply."

Per pg. 95 of FM: Crusader Clans and pg. 49 of FM: Update, the name of the WarShip in question is spelled Janice Hazen.

Suggested Correction: Correct spelling of WarShip name from Janis Hazen to Janice Hazen.

BV for Sprite listed as 589, should be at 622

Calculated by hand.

Code: [Select]
Defensive BV
65 (total armor) x 2.5 = 162.5
35 (total IS) x 1.5 = 52.5
(162.5 + 52.5) x (1.3 + 0.1) = 301

Offensive BV
(55 x 4) (4 LRM-5s)  (7 x 2) (LRM-5 ammo) = 234
234 x 1.37 (speed factor) = 320.58

320.58 (offensive bv) + 301 (defensive bv) = 621.58, round up to 622

Initial PDF release, page 137, "Death of a Kindraa", first two paragraphs

Issue: The first two paragraphs of page 137 describe Jaguar taking the Streaking Mist to Atreus in early 3072, attacking/raiding the Fire Mandrill enclaves and then, as a mysterious plague began spreading, blockading the system and staying in place for several months while raiding Mandrill and Steel Viper enclaves. However, there are no records I can find in Wars of Reaving of the Steel Vipers having any enclaves/presence on Atreus prior to the Absorption of a number of Ice Hellion enclaves by the Steel Viper Alpha Galaxy in September-November 3072 detailed on pages 106-107. The text continues by stating that the Mandrill and Viper enclaves held on until a Steel Viper task force arrived in July 3073. The final paragraph of the "Infestation" section on page 117 mentions that communications from Atreus had stopped "shortly after the turn of the year" (3073). The date of the Jaguar's raiding spree on Atreus of early 3072 doesn't seem to fit with the details on pages 106-107 amd 117.

Solution: Amend the date of the Jaguar's arrival on page 137 to early 3073.

Initial PDF release, page 130, "Vengeance on Vinton", paragraph two, line one.

Issue: at the beginning of the second paragraph, the date of the Clan Coyote invasion of Vinton is given as "late August". However, the remainder of the text on the page relating to the invasion takes place in "January", and the first paragraph in the section also refers to events in "January 3073" and the following page discusses the Diamond Sharks holding out through February and into March. This makes me think that the mention of the invasion beginning in August is in error, as it contradicts the rest of the detail.

Solution: replace "late August" with "late January".

Initial PDF release, page 55, "Fuel for the Blood Feud"

Issue: the text of the second paragraph on the page states that "Trapped because of the lack of available DropShips, the Seventh Raven Regulars and the Second Raven Garrison Cluster fought hard but were completely destroyed." This is inconsistent with Field Report: Clans and Field Manual: 3085, which list the Seventh Raven Regulars as an active veteran unit deployed inside Delta Galaxy, and Field Report: Clans mentions that two of the three Clusters within Delta Galaxy were actually transfers from Kappa Galaxy - those two look to be the Sixth and Seventh Raven Regulars, based on the unit roster in Field Manual: Updates.

Solution: almost no Snow Raven ground units are name-checked in Wars of Reaving (the two in that paragraph might be the only two, based on the searches I've done) so the mention of the Seventh Raven Regulars being destroyed could be replaced with one of the other Kappa Galaxy units that doesn't appear to have survived the Wars of Reaving - either the Fifteenth or Sixteenth Raven Garrison Cluster.


Xotl: This and any errata above was considered for the PoD re-release; formal errata to come later.

Initial? PDF release, page 102, last paragraph of left column

Problem: The text claims that Salonika is seventy light years from Tethis. According to the map on page 227, that is incorrect. Tathis is back with the Clan homeworlds, while Salonika is more than half-way to the Inner Sphere. For that matter, I don't see any systems on the map within 100 light years of Salonika.

The relevant text is between the dashes here:
Quote
Two weeks later, in mid-July, the Sharks were still gathered at Salonika. The main Burrock fleet, summoned from Tathis—only seventy light years away—arrived among the Shark convoy, which now numbered seventy-one vessels.

p. 156
"The Adders arrived on 5 October 3084. ..."

p. 167
"... The Adders sent three Galaxies to the system in 3084 and over the course of two months. ..."

Issue: If the Adders arrived on Haven in October 3084, this means they waited 14 months to "Absorb" Clan Blood Spirit after the civilian resistance encountered by Clans Coyote and Stone Lion (p. 155).

Solution: 1) Do nothing, it is right.
2) Change both dates from 3084. ...3083

I realize this is now 10 years on, but I just noticed this one as I am re-reading the book...

initial PDF release

p.99, end of first paragraph

error:
"The Osis’ Pride, now somewhat repaired, fully crewed, and under Ice Hellion control, resumed its journey back to the Clan Homeworlds. It arrived at Hector in February 3074."

correction:
"The Osis’ Pride, now somewhat repaired, fully crewed, and under Ice Hellion control, resumed its journey back to the Clan Homeworlds. It arrived at Hector in February 3073."

later sections indicate that Connor Rood and the Osis' Pride reached Hector in early 3073, and 3074 would make no sense:
p.111 "By the end of 3072, the Ice Hellions could muster...saKhan Rood arrived six weeks later with the Osis’ Pride."

pretty sure this should be days, since it's the same type of star as Vinton (same page) and it's 6.19 days.  The sarna entry also lists it as days.
