On page 5 of the PDF, 182 of the book, of the preview for Blackmoor released on 8-1-2004, the word Helmet is misspelled. Were it anywhere but the title of the New Wondrous Item, it probably wouldn't be that noticeable.

Uh.... no, didn't you know? In the, uh, ancient Blackmoorian language of Blackmoorglish, that's how you spell "helmet"! Duh.

:P

Too bad it's already gone to the printer. Ain't nothing we can do now!

:lol:

Trust me. I'm not really one for being the greatest speller in the world myself. It wont keep me from buying it the instant I see it on my gaming store's shelves.

In keeping with the "unusual sense of humor" that the deisgners of Blackmoor have (including Dave's very cool sense of humor), you may see this misspelling quite a bit in the future. We may just do it on purpose and announce that's how dwarves spell helmet.. or that a helemet is actually a special dwarven helmet that is heavier and winged. (Good catch, we will endeavor to make all the spelling errors go away in the next product.)
