The "Summary: Basic Values by Race" table on p40 gives the AP cost of Elves as 15 AP, as does the character creation example on the same page. However, the "Races Overview" table on p94 gives the cost as 18 AP, as do the Spellweaver (p144) and Wyldrunner (p145) profession packages.

p91 - Two-Voiced Singing is referred to as both an Automatic Advantage and a Strongly recommended Advantage, which is contradictory

p92 - "Hair Color (1W20)" - should presumably be "Hair Color (1D20)"

p100 - "Worldview and Religion: the ocean" - should be "Worldview and Religion: The ocean"

p153 - "raven's beaks" - should be "Raven's beaks" (Raven is capitalised everywhere else it appears in this context)

p356 - "puss" - should be "pus"

Page 344: for Damage under Zorgan Pox it says, "1D6 DP (ignoring PRO) per day after the third, weakness (3 levels of the condition Stupor; see page 34). 2D6 DP (ignoring PRO) on the 13th day / 1D6 DP (ignoring PRO) per day after the third, weakness (2 levels of Stupor)." After 13th day / I think it is meant to say, "1D6 DP (ignoring PRO) per day after the 13th, weakness (2 levels of Stupor)." The last part is supposed to last for 5 more days if I am reading the Duration: 13 days / 5 days correctly.

p. 307 I think "necropoleis" is meant to be "necropolies", but I may be wrong. (Heading: Death)

On page 26, the example text says:
Geron tries to sneak into the palace of the Emir of Dingsdabad.

That city name seems like an unusual break with the otherwise very strong flavor (a "dingsda" in German is like a "thingy" in English). Maybe instead use a Tulamydian city that has an Emir here?

Page 41, the brown box says:
Their heroes’ cultures were free

However, according to the culture table, they cost different amounts of AP.

Page 54, the table formatting for Sword of Flame is broken and the AP value is missing.

Page 70/71, Khunchom is misspelled as Kunchom. Elsewhere it is correct.

There does not seem to be a fixed rule for headline capitalization. I'll give you two examples:

p. 6: What is The Dark Eye

p. 6: Why Is the Game Called The Dark Eye?

p. 7: Dashing Heroes, Evil Villains, or Something In Between?

p. 22: 1D20 Or 3D20?

Would it be possible to keep both measurement system in book? Like there is in German version and new one for US market.

passim: Kusliker Signs --> Kuslik Signs (just as Berliner Mauer does not become Berliner Wall in English)
p. 7 Fjarninger-Barbarians / p. 83: Fjarning barbarian
p. 8: Dominium Donnerbach --> Dominion of Donnerbach
p. 9: Bornland / p. 99 the Bornland
(Btw, you really want to go with Seweria? Sounds a lot like Swearia to me. Why not use 4E Severya? Particularly given that the German 'w' represents the 'v' sound in English.)
p. 9: Thorwalians / p. 37: Thorwalers (both as nouns)
p. 10 griffin / p. 107 Griffonsford
p. 14 karma points: capitalize and italicize
p. 70: Tulamydian Thief / p. 71 Tulamydya Signs / p. 105: Script: Tulamidya
p. 107 margravate Griffonsford --> margravate of Griffinsford
p. 74 The Garethian Blessed One / p. 107 kingdom of Garetia (It should be Garetian as it refers to the kingdom of Garetia, not the city of Gareth.)
p. 89: Northern-Aventurian / p. 126: Northern Aventurian
p. 113: Calif --> Caliph
p. 118 Firnelves --> Firn Elves (cf. Glade Elves, Wood Elves)

Just a small thing so far :

p10 "... and his daughter Simia."

p10 Demigod list : "Simia (m)"

So, Simia is male or female ?

Page 44. In the box "All attribute packages already include racial modifiers". Not sure if this is an error or me misunderstanding how it works but how can it already include modifiers from race?

In the text "Sarah decides against buying a package and spends 525 AP for
the following attribute values: COU 12, SGC 10, INT 14, CHA 13, DEX 14, AGI 14, CON 13, and STR 9. No attribute value is above 14, so she had to buy 35 points at a cost of 15 AP each, for a total of 35 x 15 = 525 AP.

Since her hero is an elf, she must modify the maximum values of some of her hero’s attributes (see page 40). Her new maximum AGI and INT are 15 each, and she lowers her maximum SGC by two points (Sarah already decided that her elven heroine is not very bright, so she has no problem with a Sagacity of 12)."

Her SGC is 10 in the first paragraph but the second mentions she lowers it by two, and that she has no problem with a Sagacity of 12. Wouldn´t she need to buy SGC 12 to get a total score of 10 since elves have a -2? Thus having to spend 37 x 15 (555 points)?/15

Are the 100 points maximum before or after racial modificers?

In the box at the bottom of the first column on page 44 it says "The remaining AP totals are: Louisa 560, Chris 545, Sarah 545."

Shouldn´t they pay for culture?

Even without culture Sarah´s math doesn´t seem to add up:

Total 1100
Elf race -15
Attributes -555
=530 remaining points

I'm glad we have this thread, but I hope NajiraDK is just wrong. An error in explanation like this is something you definitely don't want to see print.
