I am trying to put together a list of all the typos, grammar mistakes, logical errors or anything else that could be fixed in the book in case fantasy flight ever decides to do a second printing of the book and fix these mistakes.

Please reply if you see any other mistakes in the book. Try to keep replies in the same format so I can add to the original post.

This is not so much an error, as an odd way to type something that has been spoken.  But, we do speak like this.  It's all about which words you stress (remember it's a conversation both in game and with the GM)

Read: now YOU'RE starting?!

Also incorrect, what you're thinking is density.

You'd yhink a gmaer friendly company would be a little quicker at getting out erratta (sp?), ahem.  Like the web supplement.  Think it would be translated and posted on FFG support.

I've read in 1 other forum, a player translated list from supposedly the spanish book.  That player said they weren't in the french book either.
