Gloranthaphiles! We are approaching the Dawn Age! Thanks to some prodigious amount of work, Rick has finished doing the layout of Genertela, the Oceans and Islands, and Pamaltela. An update is up on the Kickstarter page (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/224590870/the-guide-to-glorantha).
If you find a typo (I suspect a few got through as we were making lots of last minute art description texts and other last minute additions), please add it to this thread. If you want to discuss something in the preview, feel free to start a new thread in the forum.
Note: We have not yet divided the book into Volume One and Volume Two and won’t until we know the final page count with layout (which includes all the maps and art in the appendices and the index).February 17, 2014 at 10:36 pm #6906
Pg524, second column.”They appoint their own village headman and are not permitted to a fight a member of the warrior caste.” The “a” before “fight” should be deleted.February 17, 2014 at 10:51 pm #6907
Gorgeous! That’s a lot of maps. Pamaltela in particular has really come a long way from the Missing Lands and previous samizdat versions.
Cry typo and lose the dogges of war!
p. 534, Errinoru stretches across the north”east”
p. 535, stray “a” before the underground cities of the vegan heretics bordering JolarFebruary 17, 2014 at 11:59 pm #6908
Those are corrected. Thanks. Keep ’em coming.February 18, 2014 at 1:08 am #6909
pg616, top of first column “elfled” should be “elf-led”.February 18, 2014 at 1:29 pm #6910
– p. 554 “Next to the Jann is the Millet Goddess Ernamola
the Millet Goddess.”
– p. 558 “hiring the Bat Hsunchen
– p. 560 “From Barueli, the road continues on to Foronsopis and theN follows the coast to Dumanaba.”
There are two things I don’t know if they belong in this typo thread as they also concern the content/continuity:
– p. 45 vol. 1, Holiday issue says “Corpses are typically mummified and placed in sarcophagi”, however p. 567 vol. 2 President’s issue states “The people here send their dead to sea instead of burying or burning them”. So in one case mummies are normal in the other cremation.
– p. 544 “Fonritian free women wear veils”, but the masarin on the bazaar picture does not.February 18, 2014 at 1:43 pm #6911
The people in Thinokos practice unusual (for Fonritians) funerary rites. They send their dead to sea instead of burying them or burning them. Cremation is rare but not unknown in Fonrit (it is practiced by some Hsunchens, and by some cults).February 18, 2014 at 1:50 pm #6912
And generally Fonritian free women wear veils, but this masarin does not. She might be one of those tradition-defying tsanyano Renewers.February 18, 2014 at 2:30 pm #6913
p.392 “Ormsland was colonized by dragonewts from Dragon Pass in the First Age. It
kep close ties to Dragon Pass…”
Should say kept
btw, while hunting recently for the material on the Sunpath, I noted that the Sky section had not appeared in the previews so far. Did that section get moved to the appendices?February 18, 2014 at 2:35 pm #6914
Sky, Calendars, and Weather are all in the appendices.February 18, 2014 at 7:08 pm #6915
‘Auloring Riverman: The Aulorings are backwater (literally) tribal folk who near the elf forest of Tarinwood’
‘Auloring Riverman: The Aulorings are backwater (literally) tribal folk who live near the elf forest of Tarinwood.
‘Thousands of stilt houses built atop marshy islands, with canals between them all’
suggest ‘There are thousands of stilt houses built atop marshy islands, with canals between them all.’
‘Soldier Caste: Riding or walking’ – he’s riding. (Suspect the statement is intentional.)February 18, 2014 at 8:03 pm #6916
p. 403 “These warriors are the elite of the Serpent King’s nobility and many
of himare related to him by blood (but are entirely human).”February 18, 2014 at 11:06 pm #6917
The chapter The Oceans uses the terms sea and ocean interchangeably despite the clarifying definition in its header. Is that intentional?
p. 454 Banthe Sea, p. 456 (map) Banthe Ocean
p. 455 Hudaro Ocean, p. 456 (map) Hudaro Sea
p. 456 Sshorg Sea (title), This ocean (text)
p. 455 “The Hroarilli tribe of Malasp mermen, led by the frightening demigod
named Terthinus the Voice of the Deep, live there and have taken control of shipping over the sea, demanding tribute from all who pass by.” This sentence should be in singular because its subject is “The tribe”.
p. 461 “Now only a few ships are found haunting the Sea of Brithos hunting for the disappeared isle, a small colony on the Edrenlin Isles, another at Sog City, and scattered descendants of survivors in other coastal area.” I am no native speaker but this sounds odd to me.February 19, 2014 at 6:55 am #6919
p353 Mention of a Solanthi city named Donali yet elsewhere p357 and 360, it’s Doral.February 19, 2014 at 7:15 am #6920
Kresh trade says artfact should probably say artifact?
