LOL. Maybe. I love/loved Sea of Mystery so much, if Rahman came even remotely close to repeating that flavor in his Jungle of Lost Souls, I will be playing it a lot when it arrives. :-P Especially since it will be totally new content for me.
No errata yet. Skulltosser did the work and he's yet to respond to my PM.
The illustrious Mr. Skulltosser hasn't been around lately (in fact for several months), due to other commitments, so he may not get your PM for some time. You may be better off sending him an e-mail, if you have his contact details.
Yes, Skulltosser contacted me and asked me to send a request to his email address (which I did). I'm sure he'll respond very soon (I probably can't check my email until tomorrow) - as soon as I get it, you get it!

Or just a solo errata thread. I don't know if there are a whole lot of errata. I mean, sometimes, I don't even know there's something wrong haha. Maybe I'm not that savvy to spot the errors like other people because I think I've only seen a couple. In which solos, I forget though.

Even with the errata, I still can't figure out what the numbers in parentheses are at the end of each paragraph. I thought that was the AP reward, but almost every one of them have them, some sections actually say "20 A.P." as the AP reward for that paragraph, and some sections have 14 or more numbers in the parentheses afterward. I've been trying for the life of me to figure out what that means or where I missed it.
Okay, I'm glad it just isn't me and my ignorance. LOL I just ignored them and it seemed to play fine. Skulltosser's errata works good, just change that one other section too that he left out in his doc file. I think they basically misnumbered all the references to the town of Ryon.
So far, it really is pretty good. The atmosphere is nothing like Sea of Mystery, but the playstyle feels like it. I can tell its the same author. I've been playing a little bit at a time every nite and enjoyed it a lot. I could easily write a roleplay session just from memory on my party's adventure so far, it's been that memorable and entertaining.
Skulltosser mentioned that he has expanded this to a full-blown GM adventure and planted it in his own T&T world. And that he's squeezed many a long hour of enjoyment of the solo. It sounds like a classic. Roll on the weekend!
That is cool. I think pretty much any of the solos that aren't teleport dungeons can be expanded into GM-adventures. However, it says a lot about a solo when someone makes the effort to do so. He must really love it. I haven't played it enough to make a decision yet, but it's movin on up! Maybe it will even top Sea of Mystery as my favorite, we shall see. I like the dynamics of having a party of henchmen and/or slaves. And how they can argue. Some of the other party-based solos I like too (e.g. Overkill, Dargon's Dungeon).
