[Recommendation]

Towards the end of #5, I'd recommend changing "small to moderate challenge" to the more official 5E terms of "Easy to Medium difficulty".

[Grammar]

p. 171

In #9, there is a paragraph that reads "Each member of the company should make a Wisdom check. If successful, they are filled with Hope regarding their journey and their struggles against the Shadow and gains Inspiration.

It should be "and gain inspiration" (singular), as it is referring back to "each member of the company".

And in the last line of this segment, it says "Additionally, if more than half of the company fail (since we’re talking about individual rolls) their roll, a -1 modifier must be applied to the Guide’s Arrival roll."

What does the "(since we're talking about individual rolls)" bit mean? That entire line, if necessary at all, should be after the sentence, rather than in the middle of it, so it should be "Additionally, if more than half of the company fail their roll (since we’re talking about individual rolls), a -1 modifier must be applied to the Guide’s Arrival roll."

[Rules] p. 172-173

There are still more references to a 'surprise round' on both of these pages, but 5E does not have a 'surprise round'.

The rules for Surprise state that you can't move, take actions or reactions for the first round of combat if you're surprised.

[Grammar] p. 173

#12

"...but all may not be as it at first appears."

It sound better if you take the second "at" out of it, as in:

"...but all may not be as it first appears."

Later, it says "...powerful agent of the Enemy, or of other dark forces that are beginning stir once more in Middle-earth"

It is missing the word "to", as in:

"...powerful agent of the Enemy, or of other dark forces that are beginning to stir once more in Middle-earth"

and in that same paragraph, it ends:

"foe beyond any of them.."

It's customary to use three dots when ending a sentence like this.

In the second column, there should be a comma between "ahead" and "which" in the following:

"...they may gain great knowledge of their path ahead which will grant them advantage on the initial rolls..."

so that it reads:

"...they may gain great knowledge of their path ahead, which will grant them advantage on the initial rolls..."

and in the following line the word "a" is printed twice in a row:

"...by each making a a Dexterity (Stealth) check..."

The comma in the middle of these two sentences (near the end of the page) should probably be semi-colons:

"All gain an additional level of exhaustion, additionally the Arrival roll will be subject to a -1 modifier."

"They automatically gain 2 points of Shadow, and an additional level of exhaustion, additionally the Arrival roll will be subject to a -1 modifier."

and there should be a comma after "more" in this sentence:

"If the Look-out’s roll fails by 5 or more they are automatically spotted..."

which would match all other uses of the "by 5 or more" instances in the book.

Right, but there no longer is a game term called a 'surprise round'. In older editions, this was a thing, but this intentionally no longer exists.

Indeed there are rules for Surprise, but no such thing as a Surprise Round.

[Grammar] p. 181

In the very bottom right (in the table), it reads:

"Then, gain two additional points..."

To be consistent with all of the other number usage, it should be the actual number ("2"), rather than the number spelled out.

Also, isn't placing a comma after 'Then' redundant?

[Grammar] p. 182

the word "the" Is left out, and should be placed between the words "by" and "company" in the second paragraph:

"...for the Loremaster to decide whether the region currently traversed by company is Blighted or not..."

Also, in the last line before the Misdeeds table, the following colon should be a semi-colon instead:

"Player-heroes do not make a Wisdom saving throw when committing a Misdeed, as they are not being tempted by the Shadow: they are willingly embracing its ways."
