Just a note, the red version is not strawberry or cherry flavoring.

I'm surprised I didn't mention it before, in this thread... The 3E Player's Guide to Faerūn includes three references to the month of Ukta -- that's always amused me.

Something that wasn't a typo, but that proved amusing my gaming buddies, back in the day, was an encounter where my minotaur decided to use his great axe as his weapon.

"I'm hauling out my big ol' axe!" I announce... Only it wasn't the word "axe" that I said. It was another three-letter word, beginning with the letter A, and the use of that word presented quite a different image.

Not a specific Realms typo, but to this day, my favorite typographic error was in the first printing of the first volume of the Encyclopedia Magica, where all weapons and magical functions dealt various amounts of "dawizard" to foes.

I heard about that. A bad usage of Find/Replace All, I believe. You'd think, though, that a spellcheck (pun not intended!) would have found that.

You'd think a lot of normal editorial checks would have discovered that, but apparently not. It may have been done late in the process and not rechecked, for all I know. Regardless, it gave my group hours of amusement (it became our standard word for damage for a while), so I don't mind at all. :D
