Added parentheses around dagger and double dagger symbols.

Page 2 – Advi, Avenger paragraph 2 – cut down on pronouns (it)

Changed to:
The various chains can weigh up to 3,000 pounds.

As an undead, it is immune to sleep, charm, and hold magic, and can be Turned by a Cleric.
Changed to:

There are just a couple of things that I wasn't able to do or may need Solo's magic touch.

Page 2 – Should there be Header at the top of the page for Monsters?

Page 38 – Gila – paragraph 3
The image of the three Gila’s at the bottom of the page covers the last line of the paragraph above it.

I added John's Volcano Fairy image to r36; it'll of course need some additional layout hammering.
