So the benefits of Light Soul are:

Size +1
Double movement rate
Ignore Terrain (run through walls, trees, etc., run on water)
Flight
Confer the ignoring terrain bonus to your rider
Cannot exist without light

However, it is not clear if the stats listed for the Valkyrie Destrier have already taken these things into account (in which case it’s very small and slow without light soul) or if it stacks with its other stats and attributes, which are listed as:

Light Soul, Immortal
Size/Move: 5/10

I see that quadruped is strangely not listed as an attribute, so does that mean the light soul buffs size/move from 4/8 to the listed 5/10? Or was quadruped supposed to be listed, which would make it 6/24? On the one hand I feel silly for asking something seemingly so obvious, on the other hand, all due respect to Andrew and all the men and women who slave over FOTN, the books are absolutely riddled with typos, omissions, and vague wording, so I kind of have to ask.

The Light Soul needs to be applied to those stats, and quadruped needs to be listed, it was missed. Thanks for the typo catch, I will add to the errata thread. Yeah sorry, editing has been our Achilles heel, and we keep trying new editors with every project. I'm happy with the gent who's doing Children of Eriu, he's very meticulous.

Well, if you ever need someone else for future projects, I’m happy to take a look. I love your game, and I’m also a writer, so I’d be able to make a quick and thorough job of it.
