I'm a little busy at the moment, but if I have an hour or so later I'll see what I can do.

This would also make creating an errata sheet extremely easy, and it would facilitate any similar activities.

Just for clarity, these corrections are all being incorporated into the PDF and the print version. So it won't need to form an errata sheet.

When they release a new PDF, will those of us who've already purchased the original receive an updated one?  That would make an errata sheet unnecessary.  Well, in the long-run.  In the short-run, I can still make my own errata sheet until the new PDF becomes available.

@Agent333:  Sweet, thanks a lot.

A wee bit of an update: just such a list is already in the works. The necessary revisions turned out to be a little more involved that we'd originally expected, and Alex had to spent a good deal of time hacking at sections to clarify and elaborate where needed (and in a couple rate cases add or change a rule or two). I've received those revisions back now, though only just - they arrived on my desk yesterday, and I may not be able to dig into it all until tomorrow - and part of my job is to not only deal with a raft of small tweaks but also compile a list of changes we've made to post to the blog.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: This will not be your errata update, and in fact there is no need for errata at all. As has been said, we are making these changes to the master files, which is more time consuming and does have the adverse effect of pushing the print book back a bit (we'll post more on that when we're done and have hard details), but it also means that everyone who's purchased any version of the game - Digital or either Print Edition - will receive a fully up-to-date book. These will be provided at no additional cost, of course. It's all part of the package when you purchase the product.

Once we post the revisions, you'll also have a relatively narrow window to comment. We'd love to make that larger, but as we're already running behind just getting these revisions done we'd rather not push this back any further. Everything's a trade-off... But you'll have a wee window, and assuming the feedback is constructive we'll love to hear it. Smiley

Watch the blog for details as they develop. (You might want to subscribe via RSS so new posts come directly to you.)

The last sentence on Page 107 and the footnote on Page 110, the description for prop costs is confusing. Why not just say "Items marked with an asterisk count as two Props against your total number of Props allowed."? I think that'd get the point across better, while mathematically being identical. I've already had two players confused by the current wording, and it took me a few seconds to figure it out myself.

That's fair. I'll take a look at it when I'm making my next pass.

I just noticed, the Steel Inquisitor on page 537 says he has "3 metalminds (spikes; 1 Gold, 1 Pewter, and 1 Steel)"
Shouldn't that be "6 metalminds (spikes; 1 Gold, 2 Pewter, and 3 Steel)" as per his spikes listed above that?

Just a simple one from me:

p395, first bullet, second sentence.
"Perhaps bandit have settled in caves along the cliff faces here..."
Missing the 's' a the end of bandit(s).

In book 2 the background double page alchemical symbol is darker on some pages than others.

Cheers! Cheesy

I believe that's intended to mean that only three of the spikes also act as metalminds, but I've asked Alex just in case.

Awesome. We'll get that one fixed as well.

O_o

That should not be happening. All these pages are coming off the same masters... Wait, no they're not. I see what's happening (different masters for certain spread templates, like those including chapter headers). Will fix.

Thanks!

The default bookmarks have Book Three "expanded" and no other.
There's a typo in the following bookmark:
Book One > Chapter 3 > Building a Hero > Step 5 > Ser Your Resiliences
(it should be "Set"?)

As I mentioned earlier, bookmarks will have to be rebuilt entirely as a result of the revisions, so this will be addressed as a matter of course.

Thanks!

Request:

Could a moderator consolidate all the items that have already been brought up in these ten pages and index them by page number on the first post.  This way newcomers don't have to trawl through ten pages to see if their catch has already been reported.  This would also make creating an errata sheet extremely easy, and it would facilitate any similar activities.

Just a suggestion, thanks.
Hi everybody, I just came in, got myself the pdf-version and before I was going to read it went through this thread and made an errata sheet for myself. Didn't want to go through the posts on everything I found separately. So - not a moderator at all, but maybe including it here will help other newbies like me.

ps: left out rules clarifications and discussions (the post is long enough as it is Sad)

Bookmarks: Clicking on the bookmark for any of the metal chapters (other than tin,which is first) puts me at the last page of the previous metal, usually the wrap-up of the Feruchemy rules and the Hemalurgy rules.  I should also note that, after some testing, it turns out the sample characters and sheet sections work fine.
Page 30: "The islands thankfully have no trouble with mistwraiths or koloss, but skaa pirates and raiders prowl the narrow channels, plundering costal ports and lonely ships for weapons, wealth, and sometimes noble captives they can ransom for a small fortune." Should be "coastal".
Page 103: The table for Male noble names includes "Gloradel" twice. Should one of them be Goradel (the name of a minor character in the books)?
Page 107; 3rd Paragraph under "Choose Your Props"; the word "starting" should be spelled "starting":
Page 109-110: The Props table includes "Dagger" twice, once under weapons, and again at the top of 110 under Tools.
Page 122: There's a line about recovering an inner "piece" and I couldn't tell if that was word play or a typo. (should be “peace”)
Page 122: looks forward the next>Looks forward to the next
There is a sidebar on page 142, that was overlooked, that says that you don't get extra Action Dice when Catching a Beat.
So, Catching a Beat in a Conflict means you can take an undeclared action but must use existing Action Dice.
Page 181: The sidebar "Another Way To Check For Wounds" appears before the default method of determining wounds rather than after it.
Page 187:  "with the damage reducing that to 6" should be 4.
Page 227:"Beck hopes that the captain will become so preoccupied with visions of his dead lover that hfe’ll ignore his duties." Should be "he'll."
Page 232, 1st example:  If I understand the rules for spending Standings correctly, Sayna actually can make one more attempt to spend Resources.
Also, the second example should read "Beck has spent 3 of his 6 Influence."
Page 239: Difficulty one includes travel by "hors" as an example. Probably should be horse.
Page 240, again on 422: Soldiers like Gloradel>soldiers like Goradel
Page 244: She sells Brandon > she tells Brandon
Page 245: "The Narrator determines the final form of any particular piece of legislature" should be "legislation."
Page 256: Cut and dry>Cut and dried
Page 269: The words "first bullet above" are in red.
Page 269: "While a character may gain" should be "while a character who gains."
Page 287: "Blessings are the only exception to this rule — they don’t suffer this penalty because the spikes actually create them, and are responsible for their sentience." The pronouns seem to refer to Kandra in context, but Kandra aren't mentioned in that paragraph. Either "Blessings" should be "Kandra" (if Kandra are immune to all stat-loss drawbacks of Hemalurgy), or  "they" should be "Kandra" (if Kandra are only immune to the drawbacks of the Blessings).
Page 288: the example details how Pewter spikes are used to steal Allomantic physical powers. This should be Steel, pewter is used to steal feruchemical physical powers.
Page 296: Last sentence about Flaring tin. "While flaring Tin, you do not lose dice for having 0 Health (see page XX)." Which page?
Page 298: yardsl>yards
Page 307: In the section on Ferochemical uses of Iron it talks about people frequently using the extra weight to become a better anchor when ironpulling and steelpushing. As cool as that is, it's my understanding that doesn't exist as a possibility in the core book.
There are two ways I can see it being relevant.
   1) The "anchor" is a reference to the the target of Steelpushing and Ironpulling.  A Feruchemist in metal armor who increased his weight could act as an anchor for a Mistborn that is Steelpushing or Ironpulling.
   2) Through the use of a hemalurgical spike, it is possible for someone to have the ability to store weight with the ability to Steelpush or Ironpull.
The wording may be slightly better if it said a better anchor for ironpulling and steelpushing, but it doesn't seem incorrect as it stands.
As to Iron Ferchemy, the idea there is that the heavier a character is, the heavier a Steelpushed or Ironpulled object must be to move him. He or she has more weight to "throw around," which in the physics of this universe's magic system means he or she can effectively "throw around" heavier objects.
Page 311 in steel section:"Pushing Objects in Bodies: Pushing metal objects in a body (such as piercings and Hemalurgic spikes) is exceedingly difficult." That word was  originally pulling which doesn't fit because this is the steel section. I had a lot more but everyone else already mentioned them.
Page 316: "A Smoker Savant gains two “free” Nudges with Copper rolls and is a rare case of a Misting being largely unaffected by continuous burning. Consequently, the Savant suffers no penalties when not burning Steel." That should be Copper. (Although I guess it is technically correct.)
Page 320: Unlike most senses Bronze>Unlike most senses, Bronze
Page 335, under "Tapping a Goldmind":
"Gold a rare exception" - Likely meant to be "Gold is a rare exception"
Page 342: Duralumin-pewter can turn a person into a hulking monster>Pewter doesn't change physical appearance
Page 342: Duralumin, second full paragraph: "every other metal you're currently is"
I'm thinking "burning" should be in there before "is"
Page 355: "slain my mortal men" should be "slain by mortal men."
Page 380: We cover a many topics, from weaving a story in the Mistborn style, .....
Page 393: "Picture what a koloss might look like right in front of you, or an Inquisitor, or ab Obligator" should read "an Obligator."Page 462: "Though he’s not well loved, the revered and awed, and even those who disagree with his world use his name as a curse." Missing a comma after "world".
Page 395: first bullet, second sentence.
"Perhaps bandit have settled in caves along the cliff faces here..."
Missing the 's' a the end of bandit(s).Page 400: weary of meeting strangers>wary of meeting strangers (?)
Page 404: Perhaps OreSeur can keep them up to date>OreSeur has been dead for most of a book at this point
Page 446: Under the "Long Breathers" header, the following line is listed twice:
…recovers all lost Health, Reputation, and Willpower.
Page 446: The word "short" in "short Breather" should be capitalized in the sentence:
Each game session should probably have at least one short Breather, if only to give everyone (Heroes included) a mid-session break.
Page 447: The word "short" in "Long Breather" should be capitalized in the sentence:
You should introduce no more than one long Breather per game session, and you should typically plan for one every few sessions, both for the story (to represent natural pauses in the action), and so you can be sure the Heroes fully recoup and get the chance to train every so often.
Page 458 of the Adventure game (I'm looking at the PDF version):
"A pre-Ascension stone tablet containing ominous phases about the end of the
world (Major Secret)"
(emphasis mine) I assume it should be "phrases"
Page 476: "This brands JeHoy a rogue, and Brandon decides it’s sufficiently momentous that it warrants a chance in her Tragedy." Should be "change", I believe.
Page 491: "Propaganda" is spelled "Propadanda".
Page 501: Marsh's Bronze stunts are listed in bold, whereas they're italic everywhere else in the book.
Page 501: I'm not sure if this is a typo or not, but given the events of Alloy of Law and Brandon's statements elsewhere, Marsh should have an additional spike granting Atium Feruchemy. Not that it matters too much in the course of a game, but chiming in with it anyway.
Page 502: An odd pair given>an odd pair, given
Page 513: Under durable form, pronoun agreement problem: "TenSoon may shift his organs or increase your muscle density..." The "your" should be "his".
Page 530: Zinc 5 and focused emotion should be on separate lines
Page 536: Equipment section of Prelan
tFormal clothing; Horse & carriage
Page 550: "and gets final Standing scores of 5, 3, 3" should be 4, 3, 3.
