Very well done. I am very impressed by your contribution to those who have longed for a complete manual.

Should the thanks / compiling credits at the beginning of the document be moved to end of the document? As then it would look more professional and less backslapping. Or at least remove the forum icons.

Angel's inital comment is fine where it is though as a preface kind of thing.

Usually this information is placed before the book actually starts (like here) and not at the end, so I can't see why I should move it.
I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin’ back at me to see me lookin’ back at you.

OK I concede the location point as I went and checked a book, but are the icons necessary? wouldn't just the users text be enough?

Don't mean to be so challenging but I feel it just slightly brings down the feel to an otherwise excellent compilation

Did anyone notice that the Disclaimer states "This may be not be reproduced..."? There's an extra "be" over there.

Awesome looking manual! Two nitpicky errors:
-For difficulty levels, it describes hard and heroic difficulties as having the AI have "only half normal income and creature growth." I assume this should be double.
-Also, my personal experience is that even at normal, the AI moves stacks so as to be out of range of my units.

Exellent work! It seems that with each passing day Heroes 5 become more like Heroes 5: Fan Edition :)

Keep up the good work!

This manual is really well put together, great job guys.
I dont think i'll need to wait for the Nival manual now :-)
Just 1 thing for the newies you might like to add a refernce to what the small icons next to the creatures mean e.g HP, SP, Initiative.

It would also be nice if it would explain what "trunc" and other mathematical terms meant. Some of us didn't take any math in english.

Trunc is short for truncate.It means loosing anything behind the decimal point.So trunc(9.2)=trunc(9.9)=9.
