p. 101. Coyote's Victoria Ward

The Ward wasn't one of the ships traded to the Coyotes but they do have their own Liberator the Spirit in the Sky.

Page 130, right side, first Sentence: "The Shark SDS made short work of the Courage and the Broken Sea..." missing an "l", should be the Broken Seal
The Grand Council, in arrogance, gave their decree: Blood Spirit, you must conform to the Way of the Clans. You have strayed from the Path; we will lead you back. The flash of the blade, the striking knife, the traitor's stab! On the Path our step is true, while the other Clans falter. We held out our hands, in the spirit of Kerensky's Dream, and our brethren chose to treat the gesture as folly. Isolation's embrace, we forsake all and live for the future.

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

Actually, the IATM rolls on the cluster table if it's fired indirectly.

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)

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,

A player may add Options after battlefield setup but before selecting their objectives and forces.

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 from page 192- ""The Jaguar" Russou Howell"
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.

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."

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
