I just uploaded R12 last night. It's a print release candidate. No textual changes have been made in some time, so I'm hopeful this will pass without comment, in which case I'll send it to print this weekend.

Yes, that's right, if nobody finds anything wrong with it, JN3 will be our newest module in print!

At an initial glance everything looks good. The added artwork looks good. :)

Solo, sorry to burst your bubble on the print release, but, looking at R12 I found the following;
Saga of the Giants

Page 12
Hill Giant Hall - Map 2 - Room 7 Chamber of the Misshapen
Third paragraph
"days will being to suffer" should be "days will begin to suffer"

Page 19
Hill Giant Hall - Map 3 - Room 6 Meeting Room
Third paragraph
Treasures - Hill Giant Chief's Wife
"Adorned by has 6 pieces" should be "Adorned by 6 pieces"

So far I've only gone through the first adventure, I'll keep working on it as I can.

Yer killin' me, Al. :D

I'll wait until you are done, then do a release or two and update the print edition. Lots of books people are paid to write aren't as well edited as ours. I can live with a few minor errata.

Very good work. You're almost done... I'll wait until you finish the last part, then work my way through your entire list and put out a new release. It will get flow checked, and if okay will replace the current print release.
