For the Urdefhan, there seems to be a missing ecology section of their stat block. In particular, what is the favored class for these guys?

Yeah... not sure how that section got cut. Here's the missing info:

Environment any underground (primarily Orv)
Organization solitary, patrol (2–5, each mounted on skavelings), warband (6–10 plus 1 5th level commander), or legion (11+)
Treasure standard
Advancement by character class; Favored Class fighter
Level Adjustment +4

p. 29
Only when Kuvhoshik is beset upon by a powerful external force (such as a large incursion of goblins or ogres from the Caves of the Craven above, or by invasions of wormfolk or gugs from Zenebrum below) do the troglodytes cast aside their bickering ways to join forces in the defense of the region.

I believe that "Zenebrum" is a typo and should instead refer to "Denebrum", the realm of the neothelid in the Darklands realm of Orv.

Just noticed this ...

P. 2 of "Into the Darklands" lists Koriah Azmeren as contributing to Pathfinder Chronicles volume 4, whereas the other chapters in the book (on Nar-Voth, Sekamina, et al.) are listed as being part of volume 44. I'm guessing that volume 44 is a misprint, as the exploits of Durvin Gest (according to "Seeker of Secrets"), who is a contemporary of Azmeren, are published in volumes 4 and 5.

Correct. The actual name is Denebrum.

That's a typo. Koriah Azmeren's volume is #44. One of the 4s got deleted accidentally. Koriah wasn't a contemporary of Durvin Gest. (At least she wasn't when I made her up in Into the Darklands... hopefully that typo didn't cause ripple effects...)

P. 43 notes that

Quote:
Blackstrand (pop. 4,790): The closest major city to Zirnakaynin ...

However, looking at map of Sekamina on p. 38 shows that the drow city of Giratayn is a lot closer and a lot bigger. Is this a text vs. map communications issue or am I not seeing something?

This is, I suspect, a map error where the tags for Giratayn and Blackstrand were exchanged.

Yup. Verified that they're switched. But whatever you go with in your game is the actual right answer, of course!

Hi James, in Dungeons of Golarion, it states that the drow outpost in Black Siren Citadel is loyal to Blackstrand, which would put Blackstrand under the Asphodell mountains in north west Andoran. That is where it is shown in the map on page 38 of Into the Darkness, so does that mean its the text on page 43 of Into the Darklands (in the sidebar) which we need to switch - I presume it does, so the map is correct and the sidebar is where the mix up happened? Thanks

Whatever change disrupts your game the least is the right solution. I suspect that it was indeed an error in the sidebar, but that was years ago and I've purged memories of it.
