This thread is for posting any errors you see/find in the new Tome of Horrors Complete.  No book is perfect, errors happen, with an 800 page beast sometimes the little things are missed.

Please specify the version (Pathfinder, S&W, etc) of the book, page the error is found, and monster to better help our illustrious overlords pinpoint the mistakes quickly. 



I'll start:
Pathfinder, Page 104, Chrystone: Under Skills there is the word I believe there is supposed to be long black bar to separate the Skills from Environment

Pathfinder p10 Intro: "upon unsuspecting adventures" looks like it should be "adventurers" instead.

Pathfinder p18 Afanc: "water-dependant" -> "water-dependent"

Pathfinder p22 Amphisbaena: "glossy-black" -> "glossy black" ?

Pathfinder p27 Movanic Deva: "though they can be forced to do so through magical means however." The trailing however is unneeded.

Pathfinder p33-34: Arach Spellbinder Feats break across pages to avoid impinging on the image, though the line on p34 doesn't look as if it needs to break. The space before the superscript B is missing for "Eschew Materials".

Pathfinder p42 "Monster manual II" should be "Monster Manual II" and the line break is weird (non-breaking space between "Monster" and "manual").

Pathfinder p53 Bat, Mobat: "S4 Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" should be "S4 The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" as in the Cave Cricket on p96.

Pathfinder p65 Biclops: "Treasure standard" is in serif, not sans.

Pathfinder p81 Bonesucker: "black, unblinking" doesn't need the comma.

Pathfinder p87 Bumblebee, Giant: "If threatened however," doesn't need "however".

Pathfinder p81 Carbuncle: "Fiend Folio" is not italicized.

Pathfinder p99 Cave Moray: "S4 Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" should be "S4 The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" as in the Cave Cricket on p96.

Pathfinder p102 Chain Worm: Too many uses of "it" in "it holds it and repeatedly stings it until it is dead". Suggest "...until one of them is dead." or "...until the foe is dead."

Pathfinder p103 Cherum: "and wait ... as it heals." should be "and waiting ... while it heals."

Pathfinder p107 Churr Characters: "class level" should be "class levels"

Pathfinder p111 Clockwork Overseer: orphaned first line, second column - recommend column breaking one or two lines earlier.

Pathfinder p119 Cooshee: "S4 Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" should be "S4 The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" as in the Cave Cricket on p96.

Pathfinder p131 Crystallis: "say from a dead crystallis"; suggest "such as from a dead crystallis"



(stopping at the end of the Cs for now)

Pathfinder end notes:

p787: Training Monsters: "rolls" should be "roles"
p798: Reusing the Monsters in This Tome: odd line spacing makes this column start further down the page than its neighboring one.

p799: underlined link is blue - depending upon your printer, it might come out gray in the print version instead of black.

p813: "stand alone" -> "standalone" ?
"when the cost" -> "when they cost"
"pdfs" -> "PDFs" ?
"action independent" -> "action, independent" ?
"sandbox style" -> "sandbox-style" ?
"Sometimes its" -> "Sometimes it's"

From the errata thread at http://necromancergames.y...ttribution-dates-errata, the Cooshee on Pathfinder p119 has the wrong year, the Wolfwere on Pathfinder p743 still has the wrong attribution, and the Pech on Pathfinder p470 is missing the "The" in "S4 The Lost Caverns..."



The Boalisk on p72 apparently did not appear in S4, and if it did, it's missing the "The".



That first post in the link turned out to be surprisingly long, so I'm going to pause here and do some other stuff for a while.
