p.2: Introduction, First Paragraph:
“We begin in the year 10,191 of the Imperial calendar, a time of feudal politics, deadly assassins, and political rivalry in a universe where humanity has spread out across thousands of planets.”
The word “calendar” needs to be capitalized to make it uniform with the other mention of the Imperial Calendar on p.24.
p.2: Introduction, Fourth Paragraph:
“Even for the less developed people of the Imperium, spice extends human lifespan, even doubling it, and the promise of more years will make some people do daring and desperate things.”
Insert the word “the” between “extends” and “human”.
p.3: Where Do I Start? Sidebar: Second Paragraph: Change “boxed set” to “box set”.
p.11: Eras of Play: The Ascension of Muad’dib: Second Sentence:
Change “who controls the spice” to “whoever controls the spice”
p.11: Eras of Play: Novels of the Age of the Scattering Era:
God Emperor of Dune was listed as both a God Emperor novel and a Scattering Era novel. Was this intentional or is it only a God Emperor Era novel?
p.11: Eras of Play: Novels of the Age of the Enemy Era:
Chapterhouse: Dune and Heretics of Dune are listed as both Scattering Era novels and Age of the Enemy Era novels. Again, was this intentional or are they both just Scattering Era novels that were mistakenly included in the Age of the Enemy Era?
Also, if they both do belong in the Age of the Enemy Era Novel list, then rearrange them so Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse: Dune are listed in chronological order (i.e., list Heretics of Dune, above/before Chapterhouse: Dune, not after.) If they don’t belong in the Age of the Enemy Era Novel list, then simply delete them both.
p.21: “The Great Houses Are Founded” Header: Change this to “The Great Schools Are Founded” because this section doesn’t talk at all about the Houses of the Landsraad, it talks about the Great Schools of the Mentats, the Bene Gesserit and the Spacing Guild.
p.27: The Old Empire Expands: “As time ebbed on, the Imperium became stagnant and reliant upon technology to perform even the most mundane tasks, abandoning its religious beliefs and replacing them with apathy.”
Change “Imperium” to “Empire” since this reference to the Old Empire could be confused with the later Imperium of Paul Atreides’ era.
p.308: Adventure Outline: The second and third letters of the first word “The” (i.e. the “The” with the giant “T”) need to be unbolded.
p.308: When is the Adventure Set? Sidebar: First Paragraph, First Sentence: This is the only instance of the words “Old Imperium” in the entire book. There’s no other instance of the words “Old Imperium” being used to refer to the pre-Atreides coup era of the Imperium. Not only that, but this could be confused with the Old Empire that emerged when Old Earth invented the first FTL drives. I don’t have any suggestions to fix this (yet).
p.308: When is the Adventure Set? Sidebar: Fifth Paragraph: The words “box set” are missing after “Heirs of Dune”.
Whew, these are a lot of typos and errors. And I’m just finding them on a casual read-through just skipping around random pages…
Andy, how long until this goes to the printer?
