@simonh et al, re: "The Year Discussion"

It just makes more sense to me that way. 2006 + six years equals 2012, not 2011. I'd note also that The Coming Storm lists the campaign length of 1618 to 1625 as being seven years long.

So if the campaign ran from Sea Season 1 1618 to the end of the second week of Sacred Time 1618 it ran how long? (1618-1618)

It ran one year.

So if it ran till the second week of Sacred Time 1619 (1618-1619) it ran how long?

Please don't say one year as surely now you see that makes no sense.

yes, you have, every single time someone lists the years, they were inclusive.  You just didn't realize it till now. If the Red Queen's reign was from 1487 to 1495 she ruled for 9 years.  She ruled in 1487, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94 and 95.  Count em, 9.  If you try to say she only ruled 8 of those years she'll have to cut your head off.

It all depends on the real dates:

If the reign of the Red Queen started at Freezeday, Disorder Week, Sea Season 1487 and ended at Godsday, second week Sacred Time, 1495, then you're right: reign of 9 years.

But if her reign started at Clayday, Fertility Week, Earth Season, 1487 and ended at Waterday, Fertility Week, Earth Season 1495, then you have only 8 years.

Conclusion: Year ranges without given exact dates are always fuzzy.

This is a real hot button topic! I don't cede the argument, but, since it seems rather unproductive for a thread about errata and editing, I will quit the floor.

That's not a great example because temporary her reign could have been for significantly less than 96 months. But still all 9 of those calendar years were years of her reign.

But I think if something says it covers or details the years from X to Y that's unambiguous that X and Y are both included. A book with chapters on the events of each year of the Great War would have chapters on both 1914 and 1918, in the same way that a book with chapters on the years of the monarchs reign would be assumed to be inclusive all else being equal.

p.26-27

Would it be an acceptable but sneaky way to offer a band of wanna-be raiders the hospitality of the clan? They would be oath-breakers if they carried through the raid after accepting the hospitality.

(There is of course no compulsion on the invaders to accept the hospitality...)

p.33

Mountain Giants (See p.XX)

fix up page reference. A full text search didn’t yield any plausible result in 11 lights, though. The Coming Storm p.46 has the box on them.

(Isn’t the term “Hecolanti” rather than “Hecalonti”?)

p.42:

The labels for side view and top view of the interior are swapped. No idea whether that can be fixed easily.

Connected Episodes: The Storm Breaks!, The Battle of Dangerford

This page is about episode The Battle of Dangerford. Probably should be something else (The Liberation of Jonstown maybe?)
