p.168/171 - on p.168 (Starbrow Rebellion box) Fazzur Wideread's hair is described as black. But on p.171 (2nd paragraph) his head is said to have "grey hair". If I'm not mistaken these are descriptions around the same time, and this isn't just an ageing thing.

p.191 - Religion, "Balazarings religion" should either be "Balazarings' religion" or "Balazaring religion".

The meeting atop or just below Larnste's Table occurred in 1613 (at age 49) and ended the Starbrow Rebellion, while the current year of the Guide is 1621 (age 57). Looking around my friends at this age, there is a distinct trend to rapid greying around this age (provided they still have enough hair to change color). 

For all his Lunar veneer, Fazzur is from a Heortling culture which praises male vanity, and may have dyed his hair earlier before going to a "wisdom of age" look after becoming governor.

Minor glitch, that came to my attention only today (roughly 4 years late):

p.172, left column:

Quote

Serternas the Bright, Count and High Priest of Sun County: The fourth ruler of Sun County since its founding, Serternas became Count in 1612. ...

Shouldn't that be:
"Serternas the Bright, Count and High Priest of Sun Dome County:"
and
"The fourth ruler of Sun Dome County since its founding,"

At least for me it was a bit confusing, when reading this while cross-checking the Sun County timeline, because at the same time Solanthos Ironpike became the ruler of Sun County.
