    Please report content error that you find here back on your Kindle device.

    I would also like to make a shareable document that we can instead go onto and place a review note onto the document detailing the issue. I just don't know how to convert the Kindle ebook to docx. I know there are converters to do this, but do they work well. If they don't, then I will put more pressure on Kong to share the finished product with me, as some sort of Beta/Gamma reader system. There will probably be an extensive Excel document associated with it.

    Blood Line Discrepancy

    arose during 4th evolution of the Land, after 3rd cataclysm. Vile grouping.

    says it arose aft 4th cataclysm here. This means it would be in the 5th iteration of the Land.

    This means it would be in the primal grouping with unyielding dragon flame

    i) Earth Golem

    To quote the book "Its speed was also not too bad. It could run faster than the average man, if only just. "


    Let's check that quote, shall we?
    The golems speed is 45 ft/min (actually "speed 44-45 ft/min", later 57 ft/min after the upgrade).
    45 * 60 equals 2700 ft/h. That's rather cumbersome but sounds like a lot, right? Yeah, no. That's barely over half a mile per hour. Not quite faster than the average man runs I would say. Even the evolved golem is only 2/3 mph "fast". Human _walking_ speed is around 3 miles/hour, six times faster than the golem, who "runs faster than the average man".


    ii) More numbers: his XP conversion.

    Richter got 2,893,452/3,845,000 XP to Level 46 before he converted XP into TP. He converted 2,892,000 XP, leaving him with 150% of 2,892,000 to repay, or 4,338,000‬ XP to reach the 1,452/3,845,000 XP to Level 46 he was at right after the conversion.
    The next time he got XP this is the result:
    -----
    You have slain a Level 41 Ironspine Scorpion. You have gained 1,283 XP.

    XP deficit remaining: -3,842,559
    -----
    If we add up the XP he gained and the deficit remaining we come up with 3,843,842, a number so strange I can't for the life of me figure out where AK got it from. At first, I thought he just plain forgot the 50% penalty and took the 3,845,000 XP for level 46 as the "deficit" no matter how little sense that would make, but even that doesn't work out. With the 1452 XP remaining after his conversion, he would have 3,845,294 XP once he pays of that deficit, barely missing the 3845000 XP his lvl46 requires. So I have absolutely no clue whats going on, but I'm pretty sure AK somehow mixed up the 3.845mio XP for lvl 46 with the actual deficit and still got it wrong!


    iii) The new Bloodline Points are rather screwed up as well. His Harvest ability cost 10 BP or about 1.5h of regeneration. Despite having only 74BP he uses Harvest more than 7 times in a row more than once IIRC and the one time he's described as waiting a bit for the BP to regenerate, he would have to wait for 20 hours(!) if you actually check the numbers

    I use Calibre to convert all my ebooks, and it can convert to docx as well as a slew of other formats. I would attach the file but I guess the site's admins would be a bit miffed ;)
    You can do it yourself easily enough. Calibre is free and not a big or complicated program at all. You need to strip out Amazons copy protection if you want to convert .azw files, but that's rolled into the conversion process once you add the app for it. (google "calibre azw convert" or something. Don't know the exact English search terms, sorry) It's a bit bothersome to set up but not hard to do, and once you set it up its literally one click for the rest of your life - or at least your computer's life)

    Haha all so true. When I saw his speed, I was like ??? ...okay I'm just going to go with it for now. I think it was suppose to be feet per second.

    It should also be 79 BP not 74, 74 is an error. So it's 7.9 BP per Hour. So everything is wrong in book 8.

    As for his XP I can never figure out that stuff. I gave up on it haha. But it's good to have you back.

    I diden't even bother mentioning the numbers because they are pure nonsense. No character sheet besides Richters makes sense as far as I can see and even Richter's has errors in it. Sion should have been a higher level in book 1 from skill exp alone, even if he never did anything else that earned him exp. The dungeonkeeper - bad at names - should have higher stats at his level, unless he has managed to lose some and never earned a free point in his life.

    He should be earning war points:

    "Congratulations! You have learned the
    Not all battles can be fought with an army around you. Too often in The Land, you will find yourself alone. If you cannot put your back to the wall and fight your way out of the dark, the only thing shorter than your life will be the memory you leave behind!

    Know This! At the rank of Novice in the subskill Army of One, you will earn only 10% of the War Points you would earn if you were leading troops." Book 5


    Error in recognition of Promotions!

    "Sadly, his Army of One subskill let him use a small percentage of any War Party Promotions he obtained, but not any benefits"

    Screenshot_20200215-201325.png

    I saw no sir!

    "You have fought seven battles without any support personnel and have unlocked this new subskill! You now have access to all promotions that you have earned as a War Leader when hunting alone." Book 5

    He already Reached level 9 in book 7 this should be level 10 in book 8. The next rank.

    Lucks are Incorrect

    "Richter’s Luck was artificially boosted right now. It was clocking in at forty-nine, thanks to the +20 Luck he’d gotten from making the kindir of Verget Kunig his vassals. That large boost would only last for a week, but afterward, he would still get a +4 bonus and his Luck would be thirty-three. If he chose the chaos lord evolution, his Luck would boost back up all the way to sixty-one!" Book 8

    first one is: 29+6+20=55
    second one is: 29+6+4=39
    third one is: (29+6+4+5)*(100%+20%)=52.8

    Text Error

    "While much of that power had been lost to destruction and entropy, some of it had been siphoned off and converted into Dungeon Points." Book 8

    Because of the absurdly higher about of XP that was gained instead of DP, the above should say Experience Points, not Dungeon Points. More on this later

    Math Error

    "Constitution: 62 (base: 61 + mark: 1%)" Book 7
    "+5 to all Primary Attributes +20% to Luck" Book 8
    "three into Constitution" Book 8
    ((Base 61 + 3 = 64) + (mark 1%/Dungeon lvl * 14 lvl Dungeon = 14%)= 72.96.
    With +5 to all tributes:
    (((Base 61+3=64)+5=69)+(mark 1%/Dungeon lvl * 14 lvl Dungeon = 14%)= 78.66

    The "Constitution: 79 ( base 69 + mark: 14% )" Book 8 is correct.

    Bloodline Points: "Your Bloodline will replenish itself at a rate dependent on your Constitution. Every 10 points of Constitution will replenish your Bloodline Pool by one point each hour." Book 8

    so 79/10=7.9 bloodline points per hour, not 7.4
