Typos

Post by Majestic » Wed Sep 07, 2016 6:13 pm

I know a couple (or one, depending on your POV) of the proofers for this and many other projects, and I know it's impossible to catch everything.

And part of the reasons for issuing the PDF, I'm sure, is to clean-up some of the minor typos that inevitably slip through.

Perhaps this thread can compile them all.

Up first, in the Foreward, on p. 6, it says:

Fortunately, the Open Gaming License give us the perfect way...

It should be "gives".

Ah man, I wish I had thought to note where I saw stuff. I have seen a couple awkward sentences and there missing trailing S or D. Now I don't remember where I've seen this as I've basically read the entire PH. D:

from another post:

Page 165, left column, 2nd paragraph, 1st sentence: appears to be missing "on" between "based" and "its".
Page 166, left column, 5th paragraph: the sentence appears incomplete, as if missing some rules...

Not really a typo, but the reaction table on page 195 has some really odd wording.

It seems to suggest that when you request something, you roll and use the die result to determine the reaction. However, the table lists DCs, which aren't the same as the die result.

Also, a die result of 0 is highly unlikely. Is it possible that the die results were meant to be 5, 10, 15 or 5, 10, 20?

P. 27, under Fellowship Phase

"...or establishing allies with powerful patrons"

doesn't sound right. Perhaps:

"establishing powerful patrons as allies"

P. 29, the following sentence is awkward:

We have become peoples so divided that I have never dared hoped to hear tell of such diverse peoples in Dale.

Perhaps "never dared hope"?

If you have a negative ability score you could roll a zero. I think core rules state you can't ever get less than 1 though, so maybe they actually mean 1, 5, 10, etc. lol.

That is true, but the negative reaction on the table is often not all that bad. It seems to mirror the results in TOR where 0 successes before tolerance were still a partial success. As such, the DC0 result seems like it should be a check result of 5 or so.

And again, even leaving that aside, the terminology is not correct. It is the check result, not a DC.

Style Focus: Great Weapon Fighting on page 95 seems very overpowered. Automatic advantage on all attack rolls is something that is generally not achievable in 5e.

Not exactly a typo, but the stat blocks for the servant on page 111 and esquire on page 114 list their alignment as lawful neutral. No alignment in AME.
