Hi all,

I noticed an error in your wonderful Complete Annotated Rules. 

The Rules describe "Königstein Fortress" as being in "the Saxon area of Switzerland", which suggests that it is in Switzerland.  This is a mistranslation.  It is in fact in Saxony in eastern Germany, a long way from Switzerland, in an area known in German as die Sächsische Schweiz, which translates as the Saxon Switzerland.  It is very close to the Czech border.  So it should say something like:

Königstein Fortress (Saxony) This is one of the largest mountain fortresses in Europe. It lies in the "Saxon Switzerland" amid the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, near Dresden.
