I'm surprised this one hasn't been pointed out yet. In PROPHECY OF TELOR Quest 13 ("Zargon's Flame") page 33, the Quest introduction places emphasis on the "Water of Healing" as the best way to destroy creatures summoned by "Zargon's Flame." Initially, one may assume this is just the Water Spell cast by the wizard. However, Note D in the Quest Notes offers the Heroes a treasure of a "Water of Healing" Spell Scroll that may be cast twice... there is no "Water of Healing" Spell Scroll. There is a "Heal Body" (Earth) Spell Scroll shown in the back of the Quest Book in the Artifact References, and a corresponding "Heal Body" (Earth) Spell Scroll in the Artifacts of other expansion packs (specifically KK and ROTWL), but considering the emphasis placed on "Water of Healing" as a counter to "Zargon's Flame", there really should be a "Water of Healing" Spell Scroll for the Heroes to find in this Quest 13, especially since you may be playing a party that isn't carrying the Water Spells (such as a party consisting mostly of the new Mythic Heroes).

Good catch I saw that was well but forgot to mention it! I am feeling more and more like Hasbro owes us an extra pack of cards with that errata sheet... !

Hi, another misprint I think has the Spirit Queens Torment's questbook, page 8: I guess a double rock tile is missing in the upper double corridor, near the central room, like in the lower double corridor. It makes no sense allowing the heroes to access the rest of the map corridors since they cannot go anywhere, so such blocking double tile I think is necessary... Maybe this explains why all the shadow areas of this quest map are not correctly coloured, as it was already pointed before...

I may have missed if this has already been mentioned, but I found another missing door in Return of the Witch Lord. Page 24, The Last Gate, the original printing has a door from the first corridor into the room with the 5 skeletons (2 spaces below the iron entrance door), which isn't on the remake map. Without that door, reaching the Witch Queen's chambers are only accessible through the secret door meant for her escape route!

Thank you so much, Farwatcher. You are right, it is a clear misprint not reported yet.

The missing door Farwatcher is talking about in ROTWL Quest #9 is this one:

I have updated the errata summary here with the last mistakes reported.

Hi, the first non-English remake's Game System boxes are already arriving to stores in Italy, Spain, Germany, etc.

Unfortunately, the translation to other languages will include new errata which I think should be also listed and identified.

Therefore, I will start compiling all of them in the second post of this thread, which I reserved for such purpose.

I guess non-English editions of the game will probably share most of all the misprints already identified for the English edition listed here, which I consider the master list of errata, so the idea I have is just mention the new ones exclusively detected in the other languages in order to avoid dupplicities.

Of course, fell free to share here all the errata you could find in your language and I will include them in the list.

Here are the first exclusive misprints detected in Spanish Edition of Game System box:

Rulebook, page 5: Text indicates by mistake that first quest of questbook is called "El Juicio" but it should have indicated "La Prueba", as written in the questbook.

Rulebook, page 6: Wizard character card picture indicates by mistake that its starting weapon is "Espada Ancha" instead of "Bastón".

Rulebook, page 9: Text indicates by mistake that first quest of questbook is called "El Juicio" but it should have indicated "La Prueba", as written in the questbook.

Character card, Dwarf: It indicates by mistake that its starting weapon is "Espada Ancha" instead of "Espada Corta".

Character card, Elf: It indicates by mistake that its starting weapon is "Espada Ancha" instead of "Espada Corta".

Character card, Wizard: It indicates by mistake that its starting weapon is "Espada Ancha" instead of "Daga".

Fantastic! HispaZargon is now working on the other language editions.

Avalon Hill... why have you not yet hired this man as a proofreader??

I certainly approve of your approach to preserving the individual charm and flavor of the different language versions of HeroQuest. I'm wondering, as your choices based on the classic versions compared to the Remake editions? I see you are logically matching the questbook and the rulebook, which is of course proper (the questbook modifies the rules anyway in most people's minds and is what the players see in the actual practice of the game rather than the theory of the instructions).

Interesting stuff. My Spanish is crude and broken to the point of laughter, so I used an online translation tool:

"El Juicio" (which sounds like the name of a Luchador) for "The Trial" translated to "The Judgement" ... seems very literal, like a judgment in court, the outcome of a trial. The heroes are being judged as to whether they are worthy to continue...

Your choice, "the test" is more speaking of the actual point of the quest... they are being tested as to whether they can survive and then move on their path to being true heroes.

Sorry HZ, but just as the slip-up in the Remake edition which allowed the Wizard to use the Hand Axe is now "canon" and means he gets a new cool weapon to strengthen his combat, so too now it is official if you are playing the Spanish version, that the Dwarf and Elf start with Broadswords (hoo-rah!). And the Wizard himself gets to start with a Broadsword instead of the proper "cane."

I guess the only problem with my taking advantage of their errata for my own benefit is that the Wizard can't actually USE his starting Broadsword, so he'll have to make a quick visit to the conceptual Armory in order to sell it for 125 gold coins... which he can immediately cash in for a Staff and an extra dagger! :mrgreen: :ugeek: |_P

All kidding aside, well done on spotting these, I look forward to seeing what else is odd or different in these non-English editions!

Edit: I see, so Daga = Dagger. "Cane" would have been cool, giving him a unique weapon with unknown stats. Broadsword is what he gets instead of his expected sharp knife.

About the Characters Cards errata in Spanish Edition, fortunately Hasbro has answered a fan request about it, telling they will work in a solution (see Hasbro's answer here, link from HEROQUEST (Hasbro/Avalon Hill) Fan Group Facebook's account). I guess the solution in this case is so easy, which is sending to the affected customers a copy of the three corrected cards, but it is just a speculation from my side.

That could be interesting. If they require people to send the bad cards in for an exchange that would be logical. If not, people may treat the error cards as collectors items!

GOOD FOR AVALON HILL for doing this. This is what we expect as customer service. Sure printing your own cards can be done, but replacing them is better still. Doing both was simply the right thing to do! |_P

Thanks for sharing this... |_P
