I've noted that most of the monsters that require a special weapon or attack to be hit has either the * on its name or the †/‡ on its AC but not both as it should...

Creatures having * on its name but no †/‡
-Amalgam
-Armorer
-Firenewt
-Infernal, Arachnea
-Infernal, eldri
-Infernal, Hezrou
-Infernal, Malebranche
-Infernal, Shadow Fiend

Creature having †/‡ but no *
-Advi, Advenger
-Advi, Charity
-Advi, Diligence
.Curse
-Mithridatium Bush
-Dreamless
-Fairy, Forest
-Fairy, Frost
-Fairy, Mountain
-Fairy, Ocean
-Fairy, Volcano
-Golem, Chain
-Golem, purifier
-Living Graveyard
-Salamander, Sand
-Salamander, Wind
-Sun's child
-Wind Wolf

Also, the:
-Cthaeh
-Dancing Shadow
-Dragophant
-Spirit of Vengeance
has a ** on its AC, if this is supposed to be a ‡ they also need a * on their names

Dragophant needs a * on its HD due to it special attack and the corresponding XP increase.
All golems have their specific names in parenthesis, should they have it w/out?
The Sewer Boar has a ‡ on it HD

I have added Dimirag's notes on daggers and asterisks to my edit of the FG2. I have the first 8 pages fully edited (I hope) and I am slowly working further through the text.
It is available here:

Dimirag thanks for the editing notes. I'm not sure if the same is true for FG1, can you check it at your convenience as Solo is currently working on it? I will also look at your newest artwork this week and incorporate it into my working ODT file.

coldrage: I cannot load the ODT file that you linked. Are you using LibreOffice on your edit? If so, I would request that you have track changes enabled as you work on it. I need to be able to see each edit/proposed change. If the ODT won't link/open correctly on Google Drive, I'd rather you email/PM me a direct download link once you've completed your editing.

I did not know about the track changes function; I shall start using it as of now, and transfer my current edits to it. I was using a system of highlighting.

As for the link, I think that using google drive may have caused issues (it may have wanted to format it in a way for google docs) so I have a Dropbox link instead:

R26 uploaded, with Dimirag's artwork and edit notes.

coldrage: thanks, Dropbox will work better. Once you'd completed let me know in this thread and I'll integrate it for R27. While I've already completed Dimirag's editing notes, don't spend time removing them from your copy. Also, don't worry about the layout/flow, I'll take care of that.

Very well, I have done up to page 14 so far and will steadily continue until I have covered the entire field guide.

Note (for me):
For R27 will fix the Tin Golem stat-block as noted by Cryanhall.

I have added the Tin Golem stat changes to my edit. RL has been slowing me down and I am only up to page 20.
