Thanks for the pointer, Jason, this arrived today.  I seem to recall that the s/c version came with a big poster map of Antartica, which doesn't seem to be present in the h/c reissue??

According to the page selling copies of the map, there is supposed to be one included with BtMoM: http://catalog.chaosium.com/product_inf ... ucts_id=71

However, I've never seen the book, so I can't say for sure.  (You bastard.  I'd just decided to bite the bullet and buy that when you did. :lol: So what appears to be the "boo boo" to this copy?)

For some reason they left out the poster in the hardcover.

I had also picked up the handouts book and it did not have the poster either.

Also, following is the errata that I noted while going through it and forwarded to Chaosium. (Some of it is picky, but some can stop a keeper in mid-game who is looking for information).

Notes made while reading through the hardcover edition of the Chaosium
Beyond the Mountains of Madness


A few of these probably qualify to be considered for an errata entry, some of them are aesthetic and have no bearing on the book, other than perhaps stopping you from smoothly reading a sentence to its conclusion.

One general observation and it might be the text editor used or by design, but the first paragraphs after a section or subsection heading is consistently not indented.

Page 12 -- middle column -- references 16x20 map which is not included in the book

Page 29 -- middle column -- last paragraph -- "fit-ting" should not be hyphenated

Page 33 -- middle column -- lines 11 and 12 are compressed together

Page 35 -- middle column -- "Aftershocks" last paragraph refers to clipping 3.1 and it should be 1.3

Page 39 -- middle column 2nd paragraph 16th line -- "how-ever" should not be hyphenated

Page 43 -- first column 3rd paragraph 10th line -- "detec-tive" should not be hyphenated

Page 61 -- 1st column "Pieces of the Puzzle" paragraph 7th line -- "Re-luc" should not be hyphenated & 9th line -- "Roer-ich" should not be hyphenated

Page 71 -- middle column -- bottom of paragraph references plan of aft rooms on page 268 and the plan actually is on page 270

Page 72 -- 1st paragraph refers to cabin 30 on the next page. The information is actually on the same page

Page 93 -- 3rd column -- 2nd paragraph "Stark-weather" should not be hyphenated

Page 122 -- 1st column -- "Danforth at Work" section -- last line missing the page number of the new spell, it is on page 177

Page 123 -- 1st column -- lines 3 and 4 are compressed

Page 126 -- 1st column -- 3rd paragraph 9th line -- "Lex-ing" should not be hyphenated

Page 136 -- 1st column -- where it refers to seeing "Hanger H2 after clearing" it took me some time leafing through the pages to locate -- it would be of assistance to point the reader to page 150 for this entry

Page 141 -- 1st column -- "The Locator Stone" section 2nd paragraph 10th line --
"no-tice" should not be hyphenated

Page 141 -- 1st column -- "The Locator Stone" section last paragraph -- it would help to point the reader to page 273 when referring to chapter 16 since the information that this entry points to is buried in a paragraph without a specific heading

Page 173 -- middle column -- In the reference to the Second day -5ºF (-37ºC) there is a conversion problem. -37ºC = -34.6ºF. (I did not think to check any of the previous temperatures for accuracy, it was just that this one was obviously way off the mark)

Page 173 -- 3rd column -- "The Lexington Party, Dec 5" 1st paragraph 10th line "Antarc-tic" should not be hyphenated & 11th line "untrain-ed" should not be hyphenated

Page 177 -- middle column -- last paragraph refers to the new skill section before the prologue. It is actually on page 412.

Page 206 -- 3rd column -- "Elder Thing Parkas" section refers to "Entry Dome(page 208)" that information is actually on the same page (206)

Page 239 -- middle column -- 2nd paragraph -- reference is made to "roll on the Aircraft Failure Chart" -- this was difficult to locate and is actually in Appendix 2 on page 307

Page 255 -- "People Still in the City" section -- last entry has "Halperin256" with the 256 being meaningless in that context (reference to following page #?)

Page 261 -- 3rd column -- end of 3rd paragraph "Statistics for the Shoggoth are at the end of this chapter" the information that line refers to is actually on the opposite page #260

Note: I have not gone through the appendix sections critically

The incorrect page references are put there to cause sanity damage to the reader, thus creating a more authentic & thus enjoyable experience.

Hmph.  That's annoying.

That's even more annoying (though I didn't buy the handouts; is the handouts the same as the old Antartic Expedition Pack??  I really should brush up on my non-Pagan CoC reading, it seems :D ).

Thanks, Jason, I'll definitely print this to insert into the book!  

PS - you mentioned you're writing another monograph; which ones have you written thus far?

Edit: The handouts book is just a perfect bound book of the pages from the handout section at the back of the BtMoM hardcover so that you do not have to break the spine photocopying them.
It is only a book and not comparable with the original expedition pack.

In September Chaosium published Undying Leaders. Which is actually the first thing I ever had published.
It is not listed in their catalog at the moment (hopefully the first printing sold out).

There is some information about the monograph available in the Yog-sothoth wiki.

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/wiki/index.p ... ng_Leaders

In October I was one of the winners in their Halloween contest and have a scenario included in their Halloween Horror Returns monograph.

These look like some fairly rare Tunnels & Trolls items.  Of course I am simply equating "old looking" to being rare.  These could be common as fake dog turds for all I know.  :wink:

Allan, I just noticed on the following Chaosium page

http://catalog.chaosium.com/product_inf ... ucts_id=71

They say "One of these maps is included with each copy of Beyond the Mountains of Madness."

You might want to fire off an email to Fergie to ask about it.
The map did not ship with my hardcover when I purchased it and neither was it listed in their catalog as a separate item.

Can someone move this to the silliest price thread please?  Oh wait...nevermind.  If thefantasymuseum bid that much on it then it has to be worth every penny.

You think the runnerup will pay $100 for my last copy?  Cause the copy I sold before that went for $20....after it sat in my ebay store for several months.

Jeeez.  

And as a bonus, it's a sucky adventure.... 8O
