I get something like "Your boots feel apart..." after destroying them while traveling. This should be "fell apart".

On the final congratulations screen, it displays "True Theif Challenge (+10%)" - Thief is misspelled

I´ve read the thread and didn´t see this one:

When being cursed as an atheist, the game log reads:
...but as an atheist find the idea absurd and suffer no effect.

It seems there is a "you" missing between "atheist" and "find"

Sorry if this has been posted before.

Jedi_Learner, I think you meant to write "separate". :wink:

    The word *Orakur* is spelt incorrectly a couple of times.

I disagree. I think that it is appropriate to say "the race of Man", capitalized though.

Buckets, Crazybernie, IJBall and anyone else, can you check the two links above and tell me if anything is wrong where the mouse cursor is, or is the dialogue fine?
I've looked at both of these dialogues and I think they are both fine, having no punctuation within the quotes in either sentence.

I'm of the opinion that both of those should have a comma before the 'close' quote, but it's not like my opinion on this is "law" or anything... :wink:

For proper grammatical consistency, we should stick with the American grammar rules. Rules are like laws... sorta.

On the final page of the final cinematic, is says "a unknown" which should be "an unknown". I don't want to say more for those who haven't gotten there yet. ;)

Dunno if anyone has brought this up before, but when you get enough XP to level up, the descriptive text reads:
LEVEL UP! Click on the flashing level button...
To my thinking, this should read "LEVEL UP! Click on the flashing level-up button...", or even better "LEVEL UP! Click on the flashing Level-Up button..."

    Chalice doesn't need to begin with a capital.
I kind of feel like it does here, for consistency.

Also, I'd like to take this post just to indicate that I don't have the problem with capitalizing classes like Mage and Ranger like you do (ditto something like "Guild") - that's another one of those things that falls under "author's judgment call" IMHO... :wink:

Sorry if this has been reported, but I don't think I want to dig through 7 pages of reports...

Version 1.03

After completing Keebo's quest and returning the item to him, he says "Here is 100 gold for you efforts."

Should be "your efforts."

Nevrmind. I dug through them for posterity, and discovered J_D had reported it already. Carry on, nothing to see here...

I don't remember if JL or someone else brought this up, but I'm going to bring this up anyway just in case:

Zeblin is the master thief beneath Port K, but the Book on light armor materials is called "Zelbin's Guide to Light Armor Materials" (or something like that) - are these supposed to be different (though only slightly!) names, or is Zeblin supposed to be the author of the book too and thus the book title's a typo?

Just chiming in with a couple of sloppy ones I've found:

Keebo says: 'This item does not need to be repair at this time', this should be 'does not need repair' or 'does not need to be repaired'.

When casting Bless it says: 'The gods of the underworld have temporarily given you highten combat skills', should be 'hightened'.

Same thing for the grammar topic. Save any new finds or missed errors for after Version 1.04a BETA is posted.
See my ramblings and keep up with the latest news on Twitter & Facebook.
