Spell description says it summons Anthrax. Actual character, and his unit description, spell it Antrax.

Apparently the magic site "Sacred Glen" bLasts undead, but it doesn't say so in the description. I akashiced the province it had only "Sacred Glen" and "Grove of Evergreens" in it.

Under the definition of sacred troops, extremely is misspelled "extremly."

The sites that attack undead and/or demons do not advertise this fact. That list is as follows;
Holy fire (vs undead and demons, 10 an attack): Pool of Sanctity, The Ward, Sacred Glen
Holy power (vs undead only, 10 an attack): Gateward Valley, The Rainbow Shroud

There are also some other unadvertised little facts, like The Hall of Flayed Skins giving out curses to units...

However, there are several spelling errors in the various global enchantment announcements. I just don't remember offhand which ones they were.

In the description of the two Axes of Leadership, Picus is said to be a specialist in Blood magic, and Procas in Death magic. But it is Picus's Axe that requires Death magic, and Procas's Blood magic.

The Soul Contract is said to bring one Devil every season, while it is one every month (turn); I overlooked that one in my previous list.

I am so mean. The patch is barely out I am coming back to complain about typos. *Ducks for cover*

So, Capricons are said to "loose some of their powers when they leave the sea", while it should be lose (unless they actually unleash their powers on the land, instead of merely losing them temporarily). The same goes for the Sirens. Speaking of them, their description says that "The siren is gifted with... lure men into the sea with their songs", while it should be either "Sirens are" or "With her songs".

The Hippocampus does not have any description (when summoned by the Triton Kings). Lastly, the Mermidons are said to be unable to leave the sea because of their armour, but can do so; once on the land, they will nonetheless keep their armour.

Mermidons couldn't leave the sea in the original Version. This was deemed a weakness Oceania didn't really need, so they were upgraded from aquatic to amphibian, it's just the blurb text wasn't updated to reflect this change.

Mean? How would we get rid of all these typos unless you pointed them out. The lacking hippo descr means that there are some other uw critters in dom3 that lacks descriptions. Thanks!

The mean comment was simply referring to not waiting at least a day (after the patch is out) before complaining.

A Last comment I am not sure about: is the plural form of Hippocampus supposed to be Hippocampii? (It is the spelling in the Triton King description) Similar words I can think of ending by -us have a plural form ending by -i, so that should be Hippocampi.

I am not sure of that though, since I have not been able to make sure Hippocampus follows the same pattern as stimulus, succubus and their little family.

Edit: I should have looked that word up earlier. Hippocampus has a plural form ending by -i, so Hippocampi.

A minor thing, but here it goes: when an aquatic unit ends its turn in a land province, the following message is given: "XXX the YYY drowned in [province]". The same is the same as for land units drowning in the sea, but does not make much sense when applied to an aquatic unit drowning on the land.
