First PDF Release, Page 2, Table of Contents, left column:

The First Free Worlds Guards (the Eagles of Atreus) appear above the Free Worlds League heading, making them appear to be part of the Federated Suns section.

Proposed solution: Move the First Free Worlds Guards below the Free Worlds League heading.

First PDF release, page 104, right column, third full paragraph, third sentence:

Quote
...in its ranks, deploying them...

The sentence is written in past tense, so deploying should actually be deployed:

Quote

Verb (was)/subject (amounts of raw material) don't agree in number. Should be "were":

Page 30, 2nd last paragraph:

Quote
The army consisted of the Fourth Deneb Light Cavalry...

The Deneb Light Cavalry were not formed until after the fall of the Star League, when the 4th was the only RDMAF unit to remain behind.  Suggest changing the name of the unit to something else.

First PDF Release.

Apart from the front/back cover and some of the unit logos, none of the graphics appear when the file is viewed in the iOS (iPhone/iPad) PDF viewer component. And all the PDF apps for iOS use this component, so they're all affected.

The file looks correct elsewhere.

I can confirm this is also true for Preview under Mac OS X (probably the same PDF-rendering library). Almost all graphical elements other than text are not visible.

Goodreader is one of the apps I tried on the ipad, and it definitely didn't work.

As an additional check, the md5 sum for the file I have is aa6622f4337315ecc4374c5d4afc2919.
Hope that helps---I know file sizes can be reported differently under different OSes.

Incorrect. Tancredi Brigade is not the Terran Brigade (which was given away to the SLDF). Tancredi IV was the March Capital of the Draconis March during the Five Princes era, see Handbook House Davion, page 103 and had it's own brigade.

Not errata.

According to pages 32, 42 and 53 the SLDF unit that defeated the 4th Sword of Light on Breed
was the 1th Jump Infantry Division.
However according to page 55 it's the 21th jump Infantry Division.

The problem is actually more prevalent (this is also present in the preview on the main site):

Davion Heavy Guards is listed under the Draconis Combine, should be Federated Suns
First Arcturan Guards is listed under the Free Worlds League, should be Lyran Commonwealth

Era Tracks (p. 129) Fourth Sword of Light

STK-3Fk Stalker is listed with 18 Double Heatsinks, which does not fit into 3Fk design unless there missing change it 'Mech's criticals.

Suggested Fix: Drop 2 of the Double Heatsinks.

The design works as is. Just put the Streak ammo in the CT and the ML's in the Arms into the side torsos. At least that's the way the design is how I designed it.

Page 56, 13th Royal Infantry Division

Last Paragraph

"Bad luck would later catch up with the Thirteenth, however. During the Exodus, the Thirteenth told General Kerensky that they would leave with him, but that they required to stop inside the Rift for unspecified reasons and they would meet up at a mustering point later. It was assumed for centuries that the Division left with Kerensky’s loyalists, but Clan records made available to modern researchers show that the Superstition Division never met with the rest of the Exodus fleet. Their fate is still unknown."

The 13th Royal Infantry Division stayed behind and helped Jerome Blake secure Terra, even battling against other former SLDF troops in order to secure Terra during Operation Silver Shield.

Page 13 Comstar Sourcebook
"Using a combined attack with the 13th Royal Infantry Division (The Superstition Division) and remnants of the 251st BattleMech Division's Third Striker Regiment, she finally managed to force the two divisions to surrender..."

I'd suggest changing the entire last paragraph to something about their luck running out because they had to engage former comrades during Silver Shield."

BLR-1GHE BattleMaster (“HellSlinger”).

"The half-ton of remaining weight is added to the unit’s upgraded ferro-fibrous armor."

I reassembled 'Mech under TM rules. Here no additional weigth.

Proposed Solution: "The unit's armor upgrade to ferro-fibrous."

p. 149, first example (below 'Leftover Upgrade points')
The SDH-2Hs looses 5 tons (1,5t JJ, 2,5t Structure, 1t Armor to Ammo swap) and gains 4 tons (3t AC/5 to LBX/10 swap and 1t Armor to Ammo Swap). therefore the S-Hawk is 1t underweight. According to the Leftover upgrade points section the following sentence should be included:

"The design is 1 ton underweight and so that ton must be allocated to armor (to restore the original armor level - optionally)" or "The design is 1 ton underweight and so that ton must be allocated back to armor."
"WoB - Seekers of Serenity, Protectors of Human Purity, Enforcers of Blake's Will!"

Possible Errata, page 143.

Special rules for Twentieth Royal CAAN Marine Regiment (last paragraph, left column) states that the regiment gets a -1 modifier to initiative when playing in a scenario where half or more of the maps are urban terrain.  Should this be +1 given their fluff as urban warfare specialists?

PDF, pg 45

Change "The Duke's Own" to "The Count's Own"

In the following paragraph, change all referneces of "Duke" to "Count"

Reason - The New Syrtis Hasek family was not raised to Ducal status until the Succession Wars.  Prior to that they were only the planetary rulers of New Syrtis, though they held considerable power in the March and the Suns as a whole.
