From the new work gloves:

Quote:
No weapon fumbles. Unless it's balanced by other effects which make you fumble. Or the effect is broken, which is most certainly is. So really, for now, you're gonna fumble until I fix it. No need to report this.
I think that first "is" is supposed to be an "it". :D

No, it shouldn't:

The others are good catches, though.

Remember the rule, guys. Look it up at http://dictionary.com first. You'd be surprised how many words have multiple different minor spellings.

You don't. That's just code for "you have used up your allotted time for the day."

Game manual, FAQ section, third question.

Questions 4 and 5 ought to have their answers starting on the next line.

Because I just posted it yesterday in response to a couple of "I picked two items and thought they would be separate instead of one lump package" comments. I'll fix that tonight.

Tviri's second point is good and has been fixed. Tviri's first point is a joke that has been misunderstood.

Try oddly phrased time travel and the Flux (in)capacitor being related.

Great scott!

"bat out of hell". Isn't Hell a place-name, and thus a proper noun, and thus something that should be capitalized?

Also, it seems the crib sheet should follow the standard of the Hero's Cape and be capitalized as well.

Never noticed this before...

cup of coffee wrote:
This is a cup of regular caffeinated coffee. It's nothing special. Unless you happen to consider something that keeps you warm when you're cold, picks you up when you're down, and keeps you going in the face of adversity to be something special. In which case this might just be the most special thing on the planet.
Looks like you lost track of where you were going with this. It should either be "Unless you don't happen to consider..." or "...to be nothing special."

Personally, I think the second is better because it mirrors the first sentence.

I think the quote says what I wanted it to. Consider this example:

Code:
Godzilla isn't very tall. Unless you consider 200 feet to be tall. In which case Godzilla might be really tall after all.


The coffee one is more subtle, which I think makes it funny in a way that the Godzilla line isn't, but it's the same thing.

Hm. Okay, I see your point. Guess I just have a snarkier world view, heh.

The problem with typos I make the first time is it means I also tend to overlook them the second, third, tenth, whatever time if you just copy and paste it here without highlighting the word. Totally a failing on my part, but it means I start pulling out my hair first until I catch on to the actual issue. Any help with the highlighting/explanations is always appreciated.

Fixed.

In a newer choice adventure, it says that you see 4 people, but then only specifically lists off 3 of them. Intentional?

"Here" is fixed.

The 4/3 people would be because I trimmed a choice out. Just assume the fourth isn't doing anything interesting. I may expand it later.

Man, can't believe I messed up "its" -- that always drives me crazy when others do it. That's what I get for scrambling to write a description after 7 hours of coding. Fixed.
