P. 3. Third Level Initiation is on page 60. The Fourth and Fifth Levels are on page 61.

P. 4. Page references are for the Basic Set, Third Edition, Revised.

P. 7. Under The Many Names of Voodoo, change Macumbe to candomble.

Pp. 63-64. Sheila Brown is a 108-pt. character. Joshua Carson is a 340-pt character. Orion is a 460-pt. character.

P. 67. In the next-to-last paragraph of the sidebar, the +2 bonus raises the roll to 12, not 13. 12 is still the final modified skill.

P. 68. In the Initiation Without Knowledge sidebar, change the first sentence in the last paragraph to read "Finally Julio spends 6 HT (reducing himself from 13 to 7 hit points) for a total roll of 13."

P. 70. In the second paragraph under Material Components, delete from "This +4 applies only to potentially harmful . . ." to the end of the paragraph. The +4 applies to all rituals.

Pp. 71, 81. In the Multiple Targets Modifiers table, the last three ranges listed should begin with "5,001," "20,001," and "50,001," respectively.

Pp. 72-73. Combined Efforts: Effects that require a resistance roll use the average of all modified skill levels involved, at a +1 for every additional caster involved. In the example, the effective skill is 20 (their average modified skill of 15, +1 per each additional caster).

P. 79. Ghost Shirt defaults to Path of Protection -7, not Path of Luck -7.

P. 80. Replace the last sentence in Ritual of Slaying with these: "Roll 1d for every point by which the ritual roll beats the resistance roll. The monster takes this much damage. If this roll exceeds HT (even if it doesn't reduce hit points to 0), the brute is utterly destroyed."

P. 126. Move the entry for Wade Davis's The Serpent and the Rainbow to nonfiction, and strike the word "fictionalized."

P. 128. Path of Protection rituals are on p. 77.
