From MA:
Ulm has Tempering the Will in Thaumaturgy.
Marignon has Holy Pyre, now national.
Tien Chi has Celestial Chastisement in Evocation.
Abysia has Inner Furnace in Enchtantment, and it's VERY cool.
Jotunheim has Illwinter the global, of course.
Bandar Log still has Celestial Music in Thaumaturgy.

Those are all I cound find ATM. MA R'lyeh doesn't yet have the dream thing, it seems.
Except Illwinter , those are all battle spells, not rituals (as I was told on my Mage graduation ), and all plus other are in pp 259-263 of the manual

We have a problem with Illwinter, which is not even in the full alphabetical list (Grimoire)!!

page 60 - General Orders > Fire
"If an enemy is" - this is a sentence fragment that doesn't continue on the next page - perhaps a printing error in my version?

page 63 - Unit Inventories
Should probably be "Commander Inventories" to alleviate confusion as standard units can't carry magic items. Just a thought.

EDIT - I am enjoying the manual as well, just trying to help its next incarnation.

That's how I can duplicate it.
No, it is a bug. Same thing happens to me too (Windows version, if that matters), no matter wether Caps lock is on or not. Also some other places where Shift does not work as intended (like I posted in the bug thread).
- Caps lock is not on.

For what it's worth:
- Win XP - Service Pack 2
- Laptop Computer
- AMD 64
- Like Jarkko said - several of the [SHIFT]+ operations are behaving incorrectly for me.

Nothing really special about the system - no weird setups or background programs running. But let me know if there's any more info I can provide to help.

(Using the demo)

I tried, and failed, to type in capitals. My Pretender's name is all lowercase, and when I tried using the command for monthly casting (M, right?), I couldn't do it.

When I quit the demo, the caps lock was then on (I'd typed the key a few times during the session).

Couple of things from the chart at the back showing Magic Boosting items:

It says Blood Stone boosts Blood but it actually boosts Earth

It says Staff of Elemental Mastery requires 3 of each path to forge, but unless I'm much mistaken it's actually 4.

I can't use caps in the demo either. My keyboard shows when capslock is enabled so I know for certain that neither the shift key nor capslock have any effect.

pp. 85, Indirect Magic Table: might be a printing error, but there seems to be problem on the shaded lines of the table, so that the benefit from Earth magic has "Magic L adership +5", Nature magic has "Ma ic Leadership +5", and Blood magic has the "5" cut off halfway.

pp. 155, Grimoire Spell Index: "Summmon Sea Dogs" and "Summmon Sea Lions" should have "Summon". Not too big a deal, but the spelling puts them out of alphabetical order.

I have noticed that if the game is full screen and I ALT-TAB out to another app the same thing happens to me every time.

As long as I don't hit the windows key or ALT-TAB it is fine.

Hmm..thanks for the info, but didn't make a difference for me. Both fullscreen and windowed mode behave the same for me. And alt+tab'ing out of Dom and back does some strange video things on my system, so I just avoid it =)

And now that PhilD has mentioned it, I can't type in capital letters either, everything is lower-case. It's as if the shift button doesn't register at all.

Oh well, I'll keep an eye out to see if a solution presents itself. In the meantime, I won't worry about the hotkeys. =)

Protection of the Grave on page 222: shouldn't it say 10 range? (it says 5)

I just got my copy today, and the manual is huge ( :O )

-I really really like it though

This is the first full Dominions game I have gotten, I am so excited!
