last paragraph, 1st screen, new dungeon Bile, first sentence reads: "Water", she says.  - proper grammar dictates the comma should be within the quotation marks, not outside them... (http://grammartips.homestead.com/inside.html for reference)

This is something that I will not change. As I already said before, however more proper the alternative is, I refuse to follow this obscure and illogical rule. It's like writing in maths 3 * (5 + 2 = ) 21.

Also, as a general rule please avoid reporting Punctuation / Spacing problems.

In the second fight of Where We Must All Sup, several of Grandmaster Greydam's charms have incorrect phrasing on the conditional.  [Instigate] says "If one of the runes used by target in the last 3 turns is not Shadow, Lightning or Fire", where the correct phrasing would be something like "If none of the runes used by target in the last 3 turns are Shadow, Lightning or Fire".  And yes, these are actually two different conditional phrases.

[Deem Inconsequential] and [Golden Orb of Authority] have the same issue.

According to the wiki, [Shifting Sands] also uses it so I assume it's incorrect there too, but I have not seen that charm myself so I cannot check.  If there are others besides these I don't know about them.

Solace in Solitude, fight 4:

[Hidden Life], [Hidden Strength], [Hidden Insight]

All the above charms affect the hermit (the enemy), but it's not mentioned anywhere. Specifying something like "(Target enemy)" would make them a bit more clear.


[Eremitic Sanctuary]
20 Willpower
(Target enemy with highest level)
Curse: Attach to target: Self purge if last rune used was Buff, until end of fight

The target is already made clear by the "Target ..." line, so it's a bit redundant - just use this or that, but not both. And pls fix up the rest of the text. Oh, and the flavor text of the charm is very "intimidating":
Desiccated Hermit says : . . .


[Compression]
Aura: +2 to next melee and magic for each enemy during 3 turns
Break focus
(Target enemy with lowest armor)
38 Magic (70% P)

WTF?! It's a one man team, so why the hell would he want to break focus?! Oh, and "lowest armor" wasn't supposed to be "lowest ward"?


[edit] forget it, it's absolutely perfect...


[Blind Swipe]
Aura: +1 armor (cumul) to all enemies during 3 turns
(Target enemy with lowest armor)
38 Melee (70% P)

If it's (cumul), it's supposed to be +1, right? I haven't seen "+XX armor" anywhere else in this game...


[Submissive Hound]
Summon: +1 to auras and -1 to summons for each summon on target, during 3 turns
(Target enemy with highest level)
[For each aura on target]
1 Spirit

The first line is not clear, or not working as intended: is it "(+1 to auras and -1 to summons) for each summon" or "(+1 to auras); (-1 to summons for each summon)" ? nor complete. It should read something like this:
Summon: +1 to your auras; +1 to (target's) auras and -1 to (target's) summons for each summon (on target)

Soul Harvester's Lab:

[Glyph of Protection], [Glyph of Warding]
Aura: 90 Armor/Ward each time opponent uses an Armor/Ward rune in the next 6 turns

Although it's technically correct, using the current/common wording it should be something like this:

Aura: 90 Armor/Ward if last rune used by target was Armor/Ward, during 6 turns

[Tygann] has a problem similiar to [Slash and Burn]'s, relating the order of effects:
When you play tygann as your first card, you don't summon anything, because the condition [for each rune used or discarded] is 0. I can't test it on live server, but there's a proof from the contest one: http://contest.estiah.com/character/combat/replay/coliseum/356/id/2492
When you play SnB having 0 willpower, no aoe bane is used. It doesn't matter how strong the bane will be depending on amount of willpower used, so it should be pulled every time.

In Seeds of Miasma I read:

Bane: Lose 25 life and +1 to all allies' banes after 4 turns

But target has a life loss of 30 HPs... Here a REPLAY (http://goo.gl/YQVtl) [turns 91-95]

I think it would actually be better to keep the life loss at 30 HPs and just change the text to match that.

Smile of Evil's condition: "If damage was done this turn" should be "If damage was dealt this turn" for consistency with other charms using similar conditions (Shard of the Godblade, Blood Brand...).

In Bloody Deliverance Fight 3, the story correctly calls the deathknight Braeden, but the character himself below the text is incorrectly named as Braedan.
Title: Re: Typo and text related issues
Post by: Bazabaza on 18:57:08 - 07/24/12
In the epilogue of Bloody Deliverance, paragraph 3, there are some oddities.

"Within minutes, she has you out of the volcano and into the, relatively, fresh air."
could probably do without the last two commas:
"Within minutes, she has you out of the volcano and into the relatively fresh air."

"Your wounds have been clean and bound and food and drink are laid before you."
would probably be better:
"Your wounds have been cleaned and bound and food and drink are laid before you."

"You accept it all graciously."
maybe it's just me but perhaps "gratefully" would fit better?
"You accept it all gratefully."


Also, the description of Prismatic Cannon says "1 spirit to all allies".
Targets are usually listed in white, like: "1 spirit to all allies".


And while I'm at it, there's an inconsistency with the colors on Gloom Knell. If a charm gives only one type of defense, the amount is usually in the same color as the defense it gives. If it gives two types of defense, the amount is usually white. Gloom Knell is the only charm I know about that gives two types of defense and has the amount in the color of armor, instead of white.

It's not exactly a bug, but this is rather inconsistent (and nothing new):

(http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/9277/petsb.png)

So once the pet's name is displayed, the other time the pet type. The same happens with replays: in fights the pet's name is displayed, in races the pet type. Why not stick to one or the other?


[update] Same here:

Mana wyrm

Summon: Reduce target's next magic by 14 during 8 turns
But normal charms have -XY to target's next magic.

wouldn't be better to make it here as well? Like

Summon: -14 to target's next magic during 8 turns

In turn 12, it says 'Ghost Drakeling enrages, Frozen Passion takes 19 melee damage'; however, Ghost Drakeling's description is only 'Summon: Destroy 17 Ward during 10 turns'.

I propose you modify it to 'Summon: Destroy 17 Ward or 19 Melee during 10 turns'. The Wiki lists the melee as a 'hidden effect', which makes no sense at all. Why keep this effect hidden?

Also in Water of Life, the post-Fight 4 text says: 'You walk up to the ice grail, hover over your still bleeding arm, and watch your blood slowly fills up the container.' This should be either 'as your blood slowly fills up' or 'your blood slowly fill up'. Another sentence is: 'Or not to be able feel love ever again.', which should be 'to feel love'.

When sending your pet to fight/race, you get the following confirmations:

Your [pet name] has been queued for next fight.

Your [pet name] has been queued for next race.


They should be:

Your [pet name] has been queued for the next fight/race.

or

Your [pet type] has been queued for the next race/fight.

King of No Man:

First page:

"...and the depiction from those gossip tellers have quickly turned the place into a horrifying hell of blood..."

Should be either:

"...and the depictions from those gossip tellers have quickly turned the place into a horrifying hell of blood..."

or

"...and the depiction from those gossip tellers has quickly turned the place into a horrifying hell of blood..."

Fight 2:

"A tyranny's level is only as high as how public his martyrs are."

Pretty sure that should be "tyrant's."

Fight 3:

""How long has it been since the last visitor" The king's loud voice echoes like a distant thunder."

Missing a ? after visitor.

"Baralas's eyes quickly glanced at to two ghosts with their face peeled off, cowering in a corner."

Since the narration is in present tense, and you have multiple ghost faces, and you don't need both "at" and "to":

"Baralas's eyes quickly glance at two ghosts with their faces peeled off, cowering in a corner."

"...but the fights of the dead makes even the saints turn their eyes away."

Should be:

"...but the fights of the dead make even the saints turn their eyes away."

Page 4:

"...we fought like primal animals, for each inch of our border"."

Put the period inside the quote since it's the end of a spoken sentence.

"...for failing to the king's order."

Looks like it's missing a verb after "to." Failing to uphold? Failing to follow?

"For each second passed while I was sitting on that throne, people died."

Should be:

"For each second that passed while I was sitting on that throne, people died."


Where We All Must Sup fight 2:

Combo charm Endangered Species:

"...the rythm of the fight"

Should be:

"...the rhythm of the fight"

The current description of the Taunt skill : "Winning is not enough for you, you like to taunt your opponent to make him understand how much you dominated". A more politically correct version, somewhat mending that (unintentional) anadiplosis, would be : "Winning is not enough for you, as you like to taunt your opponents to make them understand how much you dominated".

Well when you use a break focus charm, it says "X broke his team's focus" or something like that, from what I remember.  So either that should be changed or we assume all the player characters are male.  I vote for the former.  (If the latter, then the taunt skill is technically correct!)
Title: Re: Typo and text related issues
Post by: Pookie on 18:35:32 - 12/13/12
Pretty much everything in this game assumes that characters are male. I've just learned not to take it personally whenever someone calls me "young man."  ;D


Where We All Must Sup fight 3:

"Suddenly, your fool's errand regarding the Harvester's evaporates in your mind and you remember your greatest folly. "

Should be:

"Suddenly, your fool's errand regarding the Harvesters evaporates in your mind and you remember your greatest folly. "

I saw this while looking through a skirmish fight:

4  Lezard uses [Fang of Tiamat]
Flame123 takes 4 melee damage (43 absorbed, 4 pierced)
Flame123 is afflicted by bane of Tiamat

** Battle status **
Flame123 : 1176/1180 HP, 7 Armor, 0 Ward, 0 Willpower, 63/66 Charm(s) left
Lezard : 973/1078 HP, 0 Armor, 0 Ward, 0 Willpower, 41/42 Charm(s) left

5  Flame123 uses [Champion's Crest]
Lezard takes 46 melee damage
Flame123 is more resistant to dizziness
Tail of Shaula takes effect, Flame123's melee attacks are increased by up to 2
Tail of Shaula takes effect, Flame123's armor raises to 22
Because of Bane of Tiamat, Flame123's armor drops to 6
Because of Bane of Tiamat, Flame123's ward drops to 0

Shouldn't the "b" in Bane of Tiamat be capitalized when it is applied

From what I see, the text for Small Amber Rubble and Tattered Sapphire Chunk both read:

Although this is only a small fragment, you feel that is has immense potential

The "is" should be "it"
