This isn't a bug, more of just a default setup error in the scenario. If this doesn't belong here, forgive me. Upon arrival to the island, the default Party Location token is placed on the 1. South Pier . This can be confusing as stated in the scenario details, the party lands on the northern pier . They later come across the South Pier via the pathway through the copse of trees. If done in reverse, it messes with some of the flow and descriptions, it makes the 'Following the Footprints' section slightly confusing, and the line about seeing 'The lights of a small town' not make any sense Also if they showed up on the south side, saw the rowboat and the lights 650 yards behind them, they'd just hop in and leave. tl;dr - Tokens default location should be moved to the northern pier.

In the handout ' Handout: Lightless 2 ' the date in the 5th entry is extremely wrong (in the text version); it says April 14th, 1936. The entry resides between April 3rd, 1926 and April 12th, 1926 but somehow takes place 10 years and 2 days later. It should read April 11th, 1926. The day before the next entry on April 12th.
