Version: First printing, PDF format

Location: Page 60, just above the Pre-Existing Damage table

The Error: As listed, the Aurigan Reach sub-affiliation doesn't balance with the Major Periphery State affiliation from AToW, page 58.  Major Periphery State should come out to a cost of 100 XP, and the fixed plus flex XP yields -5 prior to adding the sub-affiliation, so Aurigan Reach should add up to 105 XP.

The Correction: I believe Wealth should be -100 0 vice +100 XP, and 10 more XP need to be dropped.  I recommend simply deleting Martial Arts.

Version: First printing, PDF format

Location: Page 38, Karen "Sunbird" Andris

The Error: Andris is indicated to be commander of and involved in Operation RENEWED HOPE, where the remainder of book including the name of the short story which describes events referred to in the past tense on Page 38 call it instead Operation RESTORED HOPE.

The Correction: Replace references on Page 38 to RENEWED HOPE with RESTORED HOPE.

Only El Giza is errata. The rest stands.
Chandan’s name either changed through the years or was incorrectly represented by the map makers. This was intentional, as a nod to inconsistencies in HBS’ internal docs. Regis Roost, in our continuity, had not yet been discovered.

Reminder that, per the rules, errata threads are not question threads: feel free to point out contradictions, but if you want something clarified, please take it to Ask the Writers / Ask the Lead Developers.  Errata threads are for errata, not questions as to whether or not something is errata.  Otherwise it rapidly becomes very hard to track actual errors.

Thank you.

Version: First printing, PDF format

Location: Page 63, Argo-Class DropShip

The Error: Under Cargo, Bay 1: BattleMech Cubicles are listed as 12 but in the game (and on the Record Sheet in the back of the book) it lists the Mech cargo as 18.

The Correction: Change "Bay 1: BattleMech Cubicles (12)" to "Bay 1: BattleMech Cubicles (18)" on page 63 to match the game and the Record Sheet.

Version: First printing, PDF format

Location: Page 26, BattleMech Assets Table, under Mercenaries listing; Page 37, second paragraph.

The Error: Mercenary force identified as Irukjandi Company.

The Correction: The name seems to be in reference to the Irukandji Jellyfish, especially with the white and blue unit banner on page 26. Name should be corrected to proper spelling.

Version: First printing, PDF format

Location: Page 9, second column, third full paragraph

Error: "Sunbird" is speaking to Commander Jakutonis of Irukjandi Company when she orders, "Tell your Lanciarii to meet us..."  (The Antian Lanciarii present are under Commander Elygene.)

Correction: Replace "Lanciarii" with reference to whatever reference to Irukjandi Company is correct in this case.

PDF first printing

Pages 50-51
Page headers simply say Local Time without detailing a time.

Pages 52-53, Scenario 2
Heading uses same location/date as Scenario 1, "Smithing, Local Time, 22 August 3026" but fluff states Weldry, 19 September 3026
"Assassinating" the Clan commander's goldfish is hardly the stuff of legend.

PDF, p. 40

"Free Worlds League Militia"
Issue: No such a entity, clarified https://bg.battletech.com/forums/ask-the-writers/fwlm-abbreviation/
Correction: Replace with "Free Worlds League Military"
(That's the last of them I think)

PDF

Location: Page 63, Notes

Error: Notes end at 3 x 100 tons, this does not match the combined weight style of the MASH equipment in the same section.

Correction: Replace 3 x 100 tons with 300 tons

Page 74:
Errors:
- Conformality of style when equipment differs from standard.
- Fuel for the Argo on page 63 and page 74 doesn't match.
- Bay count jumps from 5 to 9

Corrections:
- A Note should be added to the recordsheet to clarify that the 100 and 5400 ton Cargo Spaces are not cargo spaces and represent the GravDecks and Multiple Docking Collar System respectively. This amendment should be made as this is the usual practice when equipment functionality differs from standard, for example as seen in the XTRO Primitive volumes.

- Clarification is needed to clarify which fuel amount is correct.

- Correct bay count for Bay 9 and Bay 10 so they become Bay 6 and Bay 7.

Design Errors: If 0.49.20 of Megameklab is correct, the Argo is 560 tons underweight and it's BV is incorrect by 169 points (it should be 1252). This becomes 189 points if going by the Master Unit List, which incorrectly lists a BV of 1063. These calculations include corrections to account for errata in this thread and if the higher fuel on the record sheet is used.
