    Dogs (pages 23 & 40)

    Two of the scenarios an NPC has a dog as pet/guardian, Growler (page 23) and Marnus (page 40).
    This seems odd to me, since we were taught for decades that dogs are VERY uncommon in Orlanthi lands, and are substituted with a breed of Shadowcats for the tasks a dog would normally help. 

    Please see:

    The Heortlings of Sartar and Hendrikiland disdain dogs and use shadowcats to hunt, herd, and as pets. Nonetheless, many Heortling and Tarshite communities use dogs for everything except companions.

    RQB, Dogs, page 144

    The Hunter occupation in RQG also allows dogs as well as shadowcats.


    To the Rescue (pages 26–27)
    Clarification

    The phases of the fire are not intended to be played through as if they are combat rounds. Instead, each phase should be defined by the gamemaster as required, allowing the adventurers to perform their desired actions.
