Faces of the Forgotten North Editing

Here is another project that is open to volunteers. Similar to the call for feedback in the Lifeshaper’s Handbook, this is a call for feedback for Faces of the Forgotten North. Post any playtest feedback here, as well as any spelling corrections.
In addition to a call for feedback, I will be posting specific requests to fill open holes, check of fix stat blocks, or even build stat blocks that were missed in initial release.

Stat Check: The possessions of Bandit Wind Driver include studded leather armor. It does not appear that studded leather armor was included in the driver’s AC.

Akive has the same tattoo as Talid. Any suggestions to replace this one.

Update her attacks. She has proficiency in cahulak, master’s whip and wrist razor but she wields a great macahuitl? She should at least have one of the weapons she is proficient in.

Needed - Strategies and Tactics section for Giki Kel’s Cohort.
The stat block for Giki of Kel’s Lot is missing the first 2 paragraphs as well as the strategies and tactics section. Any suggestions?
The first paragraph gives a description, the second stats the ability scores before adjustments. Here is Kel’s as an example
“Kel had the following ability scores before racial adjustments, ability level increase, and age modifiers: Str 14, Dex 11, Con 15, Int 10, Wis 13, Cha 13.”

The footer in FFN incorrectly has the majority of places as calling it “lost cities of trembling plains” then the footers drop off after chapter 2

The list of seasons on pg 141 omits the season of “windflood” when it call out five separate seasons.

“… a smaller area, the Trembling Plains are dominated by five separate spirits known as Coldnights,‖Flamesky,‖Fruitbirth,‖Ral’s‖Rest.”

Also, there is no listed order for the when the five seasons occur. Or which corresponds to the beginning of the year. All lists appear to be alphabetical.

Nor do I see page numbers on each page.
