Page 230:
"A Zalosian version of the prophet songs is the chant choirs, although they often end in revels of flagellation."
It should be "are the chant choirs", because the latter are the actual subject of the verb.

...the character creation table on page 21 begins with point number 6 instead of 1..:cry:
This is not a mistake - the first 5 points are for group creation, see page 16. While this might not be super clear, it is not an error.
On a general note - while we really do appreciate your typo-hunting, please limit yourselves to actual errors, not suggested rephrasing etc.

Page 10 - in the section "Three Tips for Inspiration". The word "book" should probably be plural.

"Revelation Space and its sequels. These book by Alastair Reynolds are full of ancient mysteries and mythical ruins – just like Coriolis."

Some other errors I found:

On pages 370 and 372 you can find textboxes labled "Eleva-" instead of "Elevator".

On page 26 the crew position for the tech-guy is named "technician" but on the spaceship sheet it is called "engineer".

Is there a reason for the English character sheet having only one page, versus the Swedish having two?

The space craft character sheet does not have enough lines to accomodate modules for ships that are class 4 and above.
Hopefully this can be rectified by reducing the section for features and moving the crew positions underneath it .
the modules section could also be split in 2
Columns catering for class 4 sheets (simple fix).
Otherwise the nice layout with tick boxes for disabled sections is useless to larger ships and would be a big flaw.
The then reduced space for listing the modules would be fine as you dont need a huge amount of space to list things like cabin , reactor or stasis chamber etc

Not an error but something odd:
the character sheet has no space reserved for your money, for mythical powers, for cybernetics, for your home world or more talents than you have at character creation. Space for your background is very limited. Is there an example for a filled character sheet?

Also: the character sheet is very dark and therefor not printer friendly. It would be nice to have a printer friendly version.

Hi!

Regarding the character sheet - there will be a page 2 of it, but all the critical information is on page 1.

Mystical powers and cybernetics are both talents, and should be listed there. I know this space is a little too limited, we'll see if we can fix that.

We will make a printer-friendly version of the character sheet.

Page 232:
"In some places they are even praised under different names, but according to the Church of Icons, they are still the same Icons."
The comma should be after "but": "names but, according".

Page 233:
"Sometimes woman, sometimes man, but most times androg-
ynous and ungendered like the hijras."
The word cut should be as follows: "Sometimes woman, sometimes man, but most times andro-
gynous and ungendered like the hijras."
