    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).

    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.

    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 Jolar

    pg616, top of first column “elfled” should be “elf-led”.

    – p. 554 “Next to the Jann is the Millet Goddess Ernamola the Millet Goddess.”
    – p. 558 “hiring the Bat Hsunchen them as mercenaries”
    – 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.

    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).

    And generally Fonritian free women wear veils, but this masarin does not. She might be one of those tradition-defying tsanyano Renewers.

    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?

    Sky, Calendars, and Weather are all in the appendices.

    Page 354:
    ‘Auloring Riverman: The Aulorings are backwater (literally) tribal folk who near the elf forest of Tarinwood’
    should be
    ‘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.’

    Page 400:
    ‘Soldier Caste: Riding or walking’ – he’s riding. (Suspect the statement is intentional.)

    p. 403 “These warriors are the elite of the Serpent King’s nobility and many of him are related to him by blood (but are entirely human).”

    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.

    p353 Mention of a Solanthi city named Donali yet elsewhere p357 and 360, it’s Doral.
