Hopefully I've done justice to your work with my edits. If anything was changed too far away from your intentions just let us know and we'll work up a better alternative.

It's all good I was just going through it. I find myself in a bit of a quandary, of when to use numerical numbers and when to use words, what's the guidance?

Am also re-working the map to show more placeables.
Edit: reworked map and added.
Edit: Im going to go with using words for numbers except; anything to do with game mechanics and outcomes.

That's pretty much how I do it, and what's in the style guide 8-)
Really nice to see continued development on this adventure!

Regarding writing numbers: In general, in boxed or descriptive text, write out every word. Not only do we not use numerals, we don't use abbreviations unless they are meant to be pronounced as written. So don't write "Dr.", write "Doctor." No "Mr.", but "Mister". The abbreviations aren't standard worldwide even when you limit the range to English, and can lead to confusion.

As an aside... I read a novel years ago set in a near-future era where equality has led to formalisms being modified. One of those things was the replacement of "Mr.", "Mrs.", "Miss", and "Ms." (all of which I know how to pronounce) being replaced with "M." and as a Midwestern American I have NO IDEA how to pronounce that. Reading the book when characters were being introduced formally (happened a lot, the story involved diplomats) was like reading speed bumps. Every time I hit "M. Smith" and "M. Jones" and whatnot my brain was jarred. I still to this day (decades later) have NO idea what word was being shortened there.

"m'person" *tips anachronistic fedora*

Edit: Basically Ma Smith, Ma Jones, phonetically. Though I couldn't resist a meme post :( I am weak.
