Should we be pointing these out?

Group damage example says:

"The gang deals its damage to the fighter, rolling 5 and adding their level for each step of difference (+2 total) for a total of 7 damage.

Absolutely - spot 'em and call 'em out.

On a 10+, you get class+Con+2 HP, add
that to your current and total HP. On a 7-9, you get class+1+Con
HP instead.

Minor quibble with the reversed order, but I thought I'd point it out.

Couple of things that popped up last night:

Some of the equipment weights seem a bit wonky: A fine bow or ragged bow weigh twice as much as a spear, staff or suit of chain mail.

A raiper weighs more than a mace, or spear.

Just to clarify: Any class can use any weapon, or any armour?

It would be awesome if it was ragged bow comma sling.

Also: the halfling lent the human her bow.  I'm inclined to make it -1 for the size difference for him, but it's not in the rules that I can see.

Should you clearly spell out that you choose one advanced move each level? Right now, the text says:

When you gain a level from 2-10, choose from these moves.

However, to a brand new player, not familiar with Apocalypse World, it's confusing what that actually means.

I recommend updating it to specify that you get to choose 1 of the moves.

Maybe:

Each time you gain a level from 2-10, choose one of these moves. Or something.

In a current game wherein I'm playing a bard, I feel like a bow just doesn't seem right.  A sling would be great as mentioned above.  A dagger is specifically mentioned in the bard's description; however, have a look at dagger:

Dagger, Shiv, Sharpened Spike, Knife
Hand, 1 Gold, 1 Weight

Notice "hand" but not "reach" or "near" - that means no throwing.  Also, given the cost and weight, these weapons are too expensive and heavy to carry to use as missile weapons.  The throwing knife is a standard fantasy weapon.

I'd like to suggest that the item be changed to:

Dagger, Shiv, Sharpened Spike, Knife
Hand, Reach, 1 Gold, 1 Weight

The reach makes it a close quarters missile weapon yet still much less powerful than a bow.

Given the 1 weight and odds odds of losing it in a volley, something like "2 Ammo" would make it a bit easier to carry and less risky to throw.

I have already told the players in my game a dagger has the range of 'reach' if thrown. ;)

Same mistake on page 13.

But surely there's a throw tag. You probably didn't see it.

(pssst... Sage! Quick! Add a throw tag!)

p. 4
"damned thongs" -> "damned throngs"

p. 6
"their character's say" -> "their characters say"

p. 8
"open door he makes" -> "open door, he makes"

p. 39
"sacrificial rights" -> "sacrificial rites"

p. 55
maybe "To dive heedlessly" should be "Diving heedlessly", to be parallel to "living day to day" in the previous sentence

I apologize in advance if these have already been corrected...

Page 9, near the bottom (last sentence on the page)...
"The GM asks to make sure the everyone understands what's..."
I think the "the" should be "that"

Page 15, top of the page (first sentence)...
"The first session of a game starts of a little different."
I think the "of" should be "off"

Page 35 - Bless
"You deity smiles..."
I think the "You" should be "Your"
