2.26: Melnibone counters are Red on White, not Red on Black (table is correct, example is not.)

8.222: The word "effects" should be "affects."

10: Nations/Personalities/Hordes/Artifacts that can be mustered are not printed in italics.

14.1: Description of "Bronze Banners + Quartz Arrows" should say "Tanelorn" rather than "Tanelor."

Spell Counters:

"Balo the Jester" appears on the Arioch counter. The appropriate "Balo the Jester" counter is blank where the name should be.

"Mabelrode" spell counter lacks a Magical Effect number. (see chart)

13.1: How many game turns does the Solitaire Game last? The scenario says that the combat strength of Dragons is doubled in this scenario, but this makes no sense as the Dragons are Army/Fleet Eaters and have no strength. In fact the entire scenario is unplayable as the Dragons are not a combat force in the game, only a spell.

Spell Counters: If a magician begins the game with Quaolnargn, does it attack him?
