Note to chiisu:
The Golems will need reordering, as I have split the golems that shared a table previously. I have done this as the golems that were paired were entirely separate monsters.

Hi,

I'm currently creating a single document with all the monsters from the core rules and the first two field guides so I'm spotting some minor typos as I go along (all r27).

Gemanite Serpent

In the fourth paragraph it says ', and will effect those with hit dice'

it should be 'affect'

Gemanite Serpent, Green

In the description it says 'adventurers will revel the location'

it should be 'reveal'

Gemanite Serpent, White

the damage for bite and constrict seem to have been swapped for ages 3 and 4.

Giant, Sand

In the second paragraph it says 'were they grow date palms.'

it should be 'where'

Golem, Glass

In the description it says 'as they can can cast an'

'can' has been duplicated.

Golem, Tin

The stats do not match those given in BF3. The differences are in Hit Dice, No. of Attacks, Damage, No. Appearing, and Treasure.

Monsters with no treasure

If a monster has no treasure should it say 'None' or is 'Nil' acceptable? There are a few instances where it says 'Nil.' These are; Golem, Glass, Golem, Household, Golem, Lead.
Note that the Amalgam and the Fairies have 'none' instead.

Good catches Andy. Could have sworn I already fixed the Tin Golem stats, but I'll double-check that for next release.

"None" is the standard.

Andy, you scared me. I just checked BF3 R40, in fear that I had failed to update the stats, but they seem to match P&P's stats from his original post here:

Hi,

A few more (G through to M now).

Griffon, Hawksian

In the first paragraph it says 'does not posses wings'

This should be possess

Jotenkin

Should the 'standard' damage be 1d8+1 if they all get +1 weapon damage?

Living Furniture

The No. Appearing looks wrong. Should Wild and lair be transposed?

Thanks,

Oh and please use Andy Scarfe as my name

Andy

Here are the edits for Version 27:

Page 2; Advi, Avenger, Advi, Charity, and Advi, Diligence
Since you said the name sections are correct, the names will need to be reversed in the descriptions Avenger Advi, Charity Advi and Diligence Advi respectively.

Page 22, Diabolus, paragraph 2 -
Currently - dealing 1d6+1 damage per rounds.
Should be - dealing 1d6+1 damage per round.

Page 22, Diabolus, paragraph 3 -

If a party does happen to catch one, the leprechaun will use pick pocket to steal any gold on the person that is holding it.
Should be - A leprechaun has some Thief-like abilities including Pick Pockets, Move Silently, and Hide, the skills are used at the equivalent of a 15th level Thief. It also has spell-like abilities that can be used at-will, including teleport, confusion, and bane. A leprechaun will use the Hide and Move Silently skills to try and avoid a party. If a party does happen to catch one, the leprechaun will use Pick Pocket to steal any gold on the person that is holding it.

From the Style Guide: “The names of Thief abilities should always be capitalized but not bold.”. I also put a level on the skills.

Page 62, Rabbit Snake, paragraph 1 -
Currently: The Rabbit Snake is just as it sounds: a snake with the head of a rabbit and the tail of a rabbit. The average specimen is around 9’ long and is covered in patches of fur sticking out from underneath scales, which are shed when the snake sheds its skin. Its coloration can vary but is generally similar to that of rabbits that inhabit the same region. Their skin can be quite valuable as it is normally aesthetically pleasing and highly resistant to most kind of acids. They can disguise themselves as rabbits using the grass to cover their more snake-like features, bobbing up and down to give the appearance of jumping. They are normally found in mild climates and grasslands and live underground in burrows preying on rabbits, deer, and similar creatures.
