Planar Entity mentor spirit (p. 95) has "Similar Archetypes: None", but Dark King, Moon, Oak, Stag, and Great Mother don't have any similar archetypes -- not even "none" listed. The phrase at the end of the disadvantages section is completely absent.

Romani tradition points towards Wild Hunstman as a mentor spirit many Romani follow. I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Related, but was their drain code of Willpower + Willpower intended?

I agree Willpower + Willpower seems strong... but we are a stubborn people.

Whew...  Just a heads up to let you guys know I'm reading this and trying to bring up anything I missed (save for spelling/grammar errors, I'm not focusing on those) to the threads on this awful book I've made for the errata team.  I wrote a whole lot, and there's still a lot in here referencing stuff I haven't gotten to yet (like the spirit and alchemy chapters) and things I missed.  So, thank you.

By the way Reshy, I had a good laugh at the idea of a character walking up to a bouncer and the bouncer finding out that they are horribly in debt and have an active bounty on their head purely by their aura.  Who needs mind reading?  The aura tells all!

Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

Yet it doesn't reveal that this time he genuinely is onto a sure thing and the deal he's here to make will legally earn him enough to not only pay off his bounty and debts but also retire in comfort, so they don't let him in and he misses his big break.

Seriously SIN, day job, debt and other qualities probably shouldn't be in the same aura viewing boat as ones like astral beacon or human looking.

So do get the reduced drain, how much reagents are needed?
One per force of spell or Spirit?

Thanks

REFINED REAGENTS
These reagents have undergone the refinement
process and have attained a new level of power.
• Reduce drain by 2 for tests using skills in
the Sorcery group.
• Reduce drain by 1 for binding.
• Raises limit by 5 for all tests using Magic.
• Create Magical Compounds (p. 219, Street
Grimoire).
• Create radical reagents (p. 210, Street Gri-
moire) (requires 10 drams to be refined into
a single dram of radical reagent).

Anyone else notice that Islamic Alchemists are forced to take Quickening and Anchoring as metamagics during initiation despite being barred from using spellcasting or ritual spellcasting? Is this supposed to imply that those metamagics can be used with preparations?

I believe there are alchemy techniques that require Anchoring. Some of the advanced Alchemy triggers utilize those.
