In both the Dutch and English rules for the first edition, the die layout for the free peoples is listed as:

- Character (Sword)
- Muster (Helmet)
- Army (Banner)
- Muster/Army (H/B)
- Event (Palantir)
- Will of the West (Rune)

The actual dice in my game resemble this layout.

However, in the FAQ found here: http://www.warofthering.eu/wotrfaq.pdf and in the BGG Rules/Faq found here http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/56178/war-of-the-ring-the-... it states that the correct layout is:

- Character (Sword)
- Character (Sword)
- Muster (Helmet)
- Muster/Army (Helmet/Banner)
- Event (Palantir)
- Will of the West (Rune)

Which one is correct?

I live in the city of Gulf, on the shores of Lake Water. This fun fact has nothing to do with this badge you're pointing at.

The second one is correct.

It's hard to believe your actual dice would be something different because how could that kind of manufacture error happen?

m, I think my dice are like the first listing two and that matches what my rules say. Again, I'm not looking at the rules right now but I'm played enough to feel fairly certain without looking. I do admit I might be wrong but strongly doubt it.

I assume you are referencing the diagram at the bottom of page 9 of the English rules showing the dice icons. This diagram is not indicating what is on each side of the die, it is just indicating what the icons mean when they appear on a die or a card.

Still, it's this quote that intrigues me:

That just doesn't seem possible. So I'd like to see that in a picture!

Well, my dice were actually correct, I just remembered them wrong.
So all's well, only the rules were wrong, but we used the correct dice.
