Re: AS&SH Errata

Referee's Manual, page 29, bottom, last sentence has "class VI demon" instead of "daemon".

Under MAN, WILD BERSERKER, the No. Encountered is 4d10, but Chieftains appear in a 1:50 ratio. I might not be a fancy, big-city DM, but even I know that (4 X 10) < 50. Is this just a subtle dig at the MAN, WILD, BERSERKER political constituency? This ship she sails without a captain!

Ha! Good catch. Those ratios need to be repaired. Thanks!

Re: AS&SH Errata

I started a google document with just the errata from this thread.  I will update it as this thread is updated:

Very good! I will cross-reference it with my notes. I believe I noted every item that was actual errata, but who knows, maybe something escaped me, so I appreciate the extra set of eyes!

Re: AS&SH Errata

I've left out a few things where you clarified your intent, which I already understood in the same manner, but left a few others in which clarified things for me.

Re: AS&SH Errata

I again want to compliment Dave on the editing job he did on the boxed set, and the relative handful of errors we've found.  I was recently rereading the Forgotten Realms grey box for the first time since 1990, and the experience was ghastly.  Typos on every page.  Editing at TSR really went in the toilet when Gary left.

Re: AS&SH Errata

Bestiary, page 8, under Ape-Man:

"These ape-men can read and write, found weapons and tools of iron and steel......"

I believe "found" should be "forge".

Re: AS&SH Errata

Not really a mistake but maybe a symbol next to the whip, morning star, lance, and dagger on the melee weapon table would be nice to indicate that their description contains extra mechanical information (grappling details, way to sprinkle holy water, increased damage from heavy horses, and the availability of silver dagger, to be specific).

Re: AS&SH Errata

I was just reading through the monster section again, and I noticed something that hadn't really registered before (maybe because I'm not used to medusae having wings).  Are gorgons and greater gorgons supposed to be able to fly?  I ask because neither one of them has a flight speed listed...

Re: AS&SH Errata

David, please email me about these last two entries; they are worth discussing.

Thanks, gents!
