[Grammar]

p. 164 Top of second column

"...the overall tone of the journey from it’s outset..."

The word "its" should not have an apostrophe.

[Grammar]

p. 165 Second column, second paragraph

Extremely nitpicky, but technically the word "a" should probably be removed in the sentence:

"If a task goes unfilled, any relevant tests for that task which come up are taken at a disadvantage."

Not sure if this is considered a typo, but the Errata page (p. 155) under the "question" Rations seem awfully expensive at 120c per day., the answer given is "This is an error. They should be 60c per day".

This should probably be "6c per day"

Assuming that 1sp in AiMe is the average equivalent of 1gp in D&D5e (which seems to be correct), and given the AiMe coin ratio of 1g = 20s = 240c (or 1s = 12c), then a day's rations cost 5s (60c). 5s is the cost of an entire costume, a chest, winter traveling clothes, a hooded lantern, and many other items. Heck, under the Errata, a basket still costs almost 4 silver pennies (45c).

Compared to the D&D5e price lists (which correspond to the AiMe list, most of the time) copper items are still 10x too expensive when the item listed costs more than 10c. Why would you even list something as 60c, when its easier to list it as 5s?

[Grammar] and [Rules?]

p. 167 Fine Weather

The word "a" needs to be removed:

"...the wind seems to be a no more than a light breeze...

Also, the word "breathtaking" is one word, rather than two, in:

"...and breath taking vistas"

And finally, what is an "exhaustion point"?

[Grammar]

p. 167 Paths Both Swift and True

The word "it's" should not have an apostrophe in:

"...to travel swiftly and directly to it’s destination"

Also, there needs to be a period at the end of this section.

p. 168 12. (last word of boxed text)

The word "advantage" should not be capitalized.

[Grammar]

p. 165

I believe the word "though" should be "through" in the following:

Increase level of terrain by one when traveling in winter conditions, though Daunting Terrain…

Also, there should be some consistency upon the capitalization of the word "terrain". For instance, on p. 165 both words are capitalized ("Daunting Terrain"), as is the same word is on p. 169. However, on p. 169 it also says "predominantly Hard or Severe terrain" (the word "terrain" is not capitalized).

[Grammar]

p. 169

There really should be a comma after "or" in the first paragraph of #1, as in "...if the company wish to avoid
them, or any member of the company..."

End of the page

Still not sure what a "point of exhaustion" is?

[Grammar]

p. 170 #4 In Need of Help

Instead of "...there are fewer than 3 Player-heroes" it should be written out as "three". If you elect to stay with the quicker and simpler number, rather than spelling them out, then you should change things in the next paragraph, where it reads:

"...must be attempted by two different Player-heroes"

The paragraph after that has "...select one of its number"

but the one following it has "...If 1 of the rolls is successful"

Likewise, at the top of the page, it reads "a level of exhaustion" (in #3), but in #6 it says "1 level of exhaustion".

There are a few others, so I'd recommend going through this entire section to make them consistent.

Nitpicky, but in #5, the word "sharp eyed" should have a hyphen ("sharp-eyed").

In #7, the word "game" in "...signs or tracks left by some Game..." should not be capitalized.

[Rules Error]

p. 170 #5

5th Edition doesn't have a "surprise round" like earlier editions, so the wording should be changed here.
