    I have a couple of changes to bring the sidebar in my section in line with Hurt Locker and other updated rules, as per a discussion with Matt and David.

    On page 147, in the "Historical Considerations" sidebar, please change the damage for flintlocks to 2 for Pistols and 3 for Muskets:

    Pistol: Damage 2, Range 15/30/60, Clip 1, Initiative -2, Strength 2, Size 2
    Musket: Damage 3, Range 30/60/120, Clip 1, Initiative -5, Strength 3, Size 4

    Also, in the last paragraph, please change "Broadswords use the machete stats." to "Broadswords use the machete stats except that Damage and Size are 3."

      The "Pneuma" Refinement (pp 164-165) background symbol is identical to the symbol of the Morbus bloodline as seen in Requiem for Rome.

      I initially thought the symbol of the 1346-era Morbus (p. 94) was a new one for the era, but I suppose it's possible it was accidentally transposed with the symbol of the Pneuma. It'd make more sense that the Morbus continue using a symbol they've used before than that a group of Created have somehow adopted an identical symbol.

      p. 230, second paragraph: should be "Bram Stoker" and not "Braw Stoker."

        Shouldn't there be a "Special Thanks" section on the credits page with the names of the backers for the top three pledge levels? Or am I just missing it?

          p. 95: "Though she slept on the floor, she a velvet cushion to rest her head on." – missing a "had"
          p. 95: The formatting for the "once upon a midnight darkly" story gets broken in the second column after the first paragraph. The whole thing should be in the bulleted style with the blue background. It makes it look like separate entries.

            PDF page 73, 'The Pure’s powerful and alien spirit patrons appear to be bemused by the new spirits, and this endorsement is sufficient for most Tzuumfin.'

            Given that this is seen as an endorsement I think 'amused' is meant. Bemused means to be confused or bewildered by.

            P75, 'The legionaries whisper that the immortui return tolife is a curse, not a blessing. '

            'to life' should have a space.

            P4, 'Forsakenby Rome' the title in the Index. needs a space between Forsaken and by.

              p. 5: there's a superfluous bookmark for the Pneuma Refinement ("Refinement of Gold (Grace)"); it's just a subheading, not a new section.

                  This is incredibly minor, but the goddess Isis' name is written with a more traditionally-Egyptian Esit in the Cleopatran Era, but has consistently been Aset throughout the rest of the Mummy line. Esit isn't wrong, but for folks less well versed in the myriad quirks of Egyptian naming conventions, it could lose some folks.

                  Page 20: "al-Uzzá" seems to have a broken text symbol in it.

                    Page 60, 65, 79 - In Forsaken by Rome few times is mentioned 'Marisian Rites', but nothing clear on them or their mechanics is pointed in text. It could be Shackled Lightning Rite from page 80, but it's effects not work with descriptions in three previous pages mentioned.

                      Page 96: "Osiris" header should say "Osirans."

                        The sidebars on p. 46 and p. 49: The "Sample Long-Term Aspirations" headings get sorted as part of the lists, rather than being in bold or offset in some other way.

                        p. 62: Uses the spelling "Suevi" just on this page, but the rest of the chapter uses "Suebi". It's not wrong per se, but it was a little confusing until I Wiki'd it.

                        p. 63: Quictilius should be Quinctilius

                        p. 70: “Herr mann” should be "Hermann"?

                        p. 130: "Mage: The Awakening second edition" -- Second edition should be capitalized

                        p. 136: cthonians should be chthonians

                        p. 136, sidebar: "Mage: The Awakening second edition" -- Second edition should be capitalized

                        p. 138: "Mages can seize Pillar points from a Vessel or any being with Pillar points, resisted by a Vessel’s dot rating..." -- Is that meant to be Withstood?

                        p. 243, sidebar heading: The comma between Voodoo and Hoodoo is invisible.

                        p. 306, sidebar heading: Dzugashvili should be Dzhugashvili

                          this might not be an error but it reads a bit strange, so it could be a typo.

                          p316: With the death of the Tsar and his family
                          came the realization that the mighty and the hidden
                          could fall, and within a month, ancient and power-
                          ful supernatural beings had been stalked, shot, and
                          burned.

                          should that be "staked"? it could be stalked but using stalked like that sounds strange to my ears.

                            I notice that the section heading "Inspirations", "inspirational material", etc is not consistent across chapters.

                              p. 13: "Ptolemy XII and Phothinus depose Cleopatra" -- should be XIII
