Looks like the third print OD&D box set up on eBay right now has a good picture of the errata sheet. Check it out at

Thanks for the heads up!! As it happens I was emailed a jpeg of the correction sheet by a different seller when I asked about it and then he gave me this link to for a second copy. Between the two I can pretty much make it all out. I am going to retype it and then post it. snip Thanks for thinking about my request!!

***Note: I have restored the italics to identify the annotations that I added. 01/06/06 Llaurenela

Huge thanks to Finarvyn for typing this up from the blurry image that I received. I have went ahead and annotated it for the 5th and 6th printings, I don't have a 4th printing so if anyone does and wants to check and see if the corrections were made in the 4th printing, please let us know  . EDIT:I received a response from an owner of the 4th printing and he indicates that the errata applies to the 4th printing also.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS
--Correction Sheet--

A few added notes are in Italics! To the best of my knowledge, all of these changes are for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th printings since the errata sheet was inserted in the box for the 2nd and 3rd printing. All of these errata were corrected for the 5th and 6th printings, except as noted below. I also added the % in Liar correction, which to the best of my knowledge is uncorrected in all printings.

MEN & MAGIC, Volume 1

Page 9: Add "Griffons" under the neutrality column. Delete the first listing for "Wights" under the Chaos column.

Page 11, line 35: "30% to 40%" should be 40% to 50%.

Page 22, line 21: The "T" cross index for Zombie/Adept should be 7.

Page 23, line 34: "…2+1), ("and" deleted) from 1-6, 3rd level types, and but 1 4th level type (up to 4+1 hit dice)."

Page 28, line 9: "each" should be east (it may be this in the 1st , 2nd, 3rd and 4th printing I do not have any of those to check. However, in the 5th and 6th printing the reference is page 27, line 18: "each" should be east and it was corrected.

MONSTERS & TREASURE, Volume 2

Page 3: Table heading "% In Liar" should be "% In Lair"

Page 3: Skeletons/Zombies hit dice should read 1/2/1 (read as one-half / one)

Page 14, line 24: "doing two, three or four dice of damage (depending on size)!" Refers to Balrogs description, which is not in the 6th printing.
Page 14, line 31: add Only magical weapons/attacks affect Gargoyles. In the 6th printing, this is Page 14, line 15
Page 14, line 33: add Only silver weapons or magical weapons/attacks affect Lycanthropes. In the 6th printing, this is Page 14, Line 18

Page 14 In the 5th printing and earlier Balrogs appears immediately after dragon treasure, but in the 6th printing Balrogs is replaced with an illustration.

Page 18, line 22: add Only magical weapons/attacks affect Elementals.

Page 24, SCROLLS: There is a 25% chance that any scroll of spells found will contain those useable by Clerics.

Page 32, Heroism: add The potion will cause fighters of 5th -- 7th level to increase two levels, and 8th -- 10th level to increase by one level of ability.
SCROLLS: N.B. After reading a spell from a scroll the writing disappears, so the spell is usable one time only! In the 5th and 6th printing, this correction was made except that the "N.B." was not inserted.


THE UNDERWORLD & WILDERNESS ADVENTURES, Volume 3

Page 11: Balrogs should have "Die" 9. In the 6th printing "Spectres" were inserted in place of Balrogs.

Page 18, line 10: An Encounter occurs in a City on a 6. Actually, line 7, at least in the 5th and 6th printings.

Page 24, line 16: The missing word is ten. Actually, line 18, at least in the 5th and 6th printings and is inserted as the number 10 instead of the word ten.

As you can all see from the errata sheet, there are some items that would effect play in a big way if they were missing. It is great to know that at least in the 5th and 6th printings the correction were made prior to printing and if anyone could let us know about the 4th printing it would sate our (my) curiosity!! EDIT: Based on messages that I have received I now know that the errata applies fully to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th printings and that the majority of the errata were corrected in the 5th and 6th printing. I have also added an errata to page 3 and page 14 of Volume 2 above.

Cheers,

Llaurenela

Erf... I thought you wanted an actual copy of the errata sheet.

I posted scans of those from the 2nd and 4th(-) prints (the latter incorporated into the ref. sheet booklet), last year;

That is quite alright, nothing to apologize for. I probably was not clear that it was the info that I was interested, versus an actual copy.  Also based on the info at your link, I am now confident that only the 5th and 6th printings incorporated the changes and that the errata sheet is needed for the 1st-4th printings. That is unless I missed something.  :)

I appreciate the additional info.

Cheers,
Llaurenela

Same misunderstanding here. I would have sent you a higher resolution image than the one I sent if I'd know it was for research.

A bit belated.  But here it is...
