The Wand Adept is a human but he retains the Innate Spellcasting trait of the Drow Gunslinger he was adapted from. Is this intentional?

Sterryk's last name.
The d' was established after the War of the Mark to identify someone is of the house.
If the character is part of Cannith, it would be Sterryk Tyran d'Cannith, or normally just Sterryk d'Cannith.
If he's of a noble house but not with them, it would be ir'Tyran.

Thanks, I missed that! Sterryk is purposefully brought in from a loyal noble house to act as regent, so his name should indeed be Sterryk ir'Tyran. We'll amend this as soon as possible.

Please check the same issue with the bartender's name.
Also, is "tenday" a standard measure of days in Eberron, too?
These piddly little nits are the few I have to pick in an overwhelmingly great adventure.
Thank You!

There is precedent in the Eberron Campaign Setting for using d' with the family name, so d'Tyran would not be incorrect.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
