    Re: Faces of Thedas Errata Suggestions

    Bodahn pled for Hawke’s assistance in tracking his son and pledged
    to be Hawke’s personal servant in return. They were lucky to
    find Sandal quickly. They found him surrounded by several
    dead darkspawn. In his hands he held a Rune of Frost and
    uttered just one word: “Boom.” When Hawke inquired as
    to the frozen ogre in the middle of the cave, Sandal replied,
    “Not enchantment.” For the first time, Bodahn began to really
    wonder how Sandal had survived so long on his own. His
    foster son had a knack for runecrafting, and it appeared he
    may have other abilities as well.
    Pg 39

    Bodahn was not with them when they found Sandal, and continued to believe Hawke had saved him. He asks Sandal to thank Hawke for saving him, and Sandal does reluctantly. He did not offer to become Hawkes personal servant, though he did choose to later.

      Within the Ben-Hassrath, he was given the
      rank and title of Hissra
      Pg 50

      Hissrad not Hissra.

        Feeling the need for a break, and not wanting to be labeled
        Tal-Vashoth himself, Iron Bull approached the Triumvirate
        and asked for a new assignment. Knowing their best agent
        was close to breaking, but not wanting to lose such a valuable
        resource, the Ben-Hassrath re-deployed Iron Bull to Orlais on
        a special assignment.
        Pg 50

        He broke, and turned himself in to the re-educators.

          Born of the original Witch of the Wilds, Morrigan is a genetically
          powerful mage.
          Pg 78

          I don't believe it was ever confirmed whether she was her true daughter, save Morrigan stating that she is so far as she knows. It seems enough to say she is powerful. Willpower and focus seem to be the true determinations of a mages power.

            Morrigan then revealed herself
            to a group of companions that had been overcome by darkspawn
            in the Wilds. Upon the monsters’ defeat, she introduced
            herself and led the travelers to her mother for further
            directions.
            Pg 78

            They were never overwhelmed, she shows herself after all are defeated and the warden looks in the chest. This may have been confused with Flemeth rescuing the warden and Alistair after they were overwhelmed at the tower of Ishal?

              After aiding in the destruction of the Archdemon, Morrigan
              disappeared for a time. She resurfaced in a most unlikely
              place—as royal advisor on mystical affairs to the Empress
              of Orlais.
              Pg 78

              Lack of comment of events during witch hunt deliberate? The warden finds her after she has disappeared, and sees her vanish through the eluvian (or possibly joins her - those still romancing have the option).

                Normally, a lack of horns indicates that
                someone is Tal-Vashoth, as many Qunari cut off their horns
                after escaping the Qun way of life.
                Pg 86

                No. Lack of horns is considered special and rare, and also considered threatening or dangerous in appearance. Saarebas have horns removed to show they are dangerous, and some Qunari cut off their horns to make themselves appear more imposing. Do you need references?

                  Deep Roads expedition, an endeavor that resulted in Bertrand Pg 89

                  Bartrand not Bertrand.

                    He also
                    eventually settled things with his brother, bringing down
                    his crazed sibling and avenging his betrayal.
                    Pg 89

                    Or he spared him and went in search for a sure - or Anders temporarily cures him, in which case there is an emotional exchange during which Varric swears he will save him.

                      Along the way, they recruited Leliana, Oghren, Shale, Sten, Wynn, Pg 8

                      Wynne not Wynn.

                        Are those corrections going to reach the first printing?

                          However, it was too late. The Circle rebelled against the
                          templars, with the Champion of Kirkwall eventually intervening
                          to stop the First Enchanter, who had used blood magic
                          in a desperate attempt to defeat Meredithís soldiers. Though
                          the rebellion was put down, Meredith ordered her templars
                          to attack Hawke, claiming the Champion had been conspiring
                          against her the whole time.


                          This is not the case, not in his comments in DAI, what we see in DA2, and not in world of Thedas. He fought with the templars and supported the annulment, however fought against her when she threatened and attacked her own people.
                          I think you're not quite accurate here. As the DA Wiki notes (with emphasis mine):

                          After Hawke's encounter with Ser Alrik, Cullen will admit that Alrik's "Tranquil Solution" had been discussed among the templars, and there are no plans to go through with it. Saying that the Harrowing has served them well enough and that it'll be up to the mages, if they push the templars to more stringent measures. He avoids saying if he supports it or not, by discussing the merits of the Rite of Tranquility and that there is an argument to be made about applying it more widely. Cullen alerts Hawke to the accusations against Aveline and participates in the resolution of the short-lived conspiracy to oust Knight-Commander Meredith.

                          Cullen and the other templars attack the Gallows after Meredith invokes the Right of Annulment. If Hawke sides with the templars, they will be asked to decide the fate of 3 mages who surrender. If Hawke asks Cullen for an opinion, Cullen questions the necessity of annulling the Kirkwall Circle. He says the situation in Ferelden was much more dire and even then they saved some of the mages. In response, Meredith asks Cullen if he will take responsibility if it is proven that their prisoners are blood mages, Cullen answers that he believes that is what being a templar is about.
                          I mean, Cullen even sides with you in fighting against Meredith. By the end of Act III, he's actively standing against annulment.

                            There is hot debate over the correct course of action here, so again, unless BioWare has an official stance on this...
                            This thread is way more useful if it is only errata, not quibbles with lore. If you would like to start a thread dealing with your problems with the lore, please do so.

                            And Bioware has signed off on this book, so they don't appear to have any serious issues with anything here.

                                It appears that Cole, Sebastian, and Stroud do not have a Willpower score. I have only glanced through the pdf so far and there are numerous other errors. Is there any chance that the printed version of this product will have these corrections?
