Yeah, we're not super-consistent with those. Went ahead and added it in those cases, thanks!

Impish villain too has gender issues. Pronoun is "It" while the messages have "he"

You purchase: 30 Misters Tea

Shouldn't that be Mister Teas?

Well, yes and no. Mr. Tea and Mr. Tea would be Misters Tea. So it's just extending the joke of the item.

There are still some spacing issues when using the new IotM. Sometimes the paragraphs are directly above the line where you get the item and it shows the item image, instead of having an extra line break.

The fire strike-back message:
With a WHOOSH! your firey defenses activate in response to your opponent's attack, reflecting 4 damage onto your opponent.

My dictionary insists it's "fiery".

Your dictionary is right, for as little sense as that makes. Thanks!

Um, about Chlorine Lad's ladel...
According to my dictionary, it should be "ladle".
Of course, that ladel is from an alternate reality, so there's that.

Someone's been spelling that wrong for years. Spoiler Alert: It's me.

One of the critical hit messages with Argent Archer's arrow equipped:
The light of the moon glints off the Argent Archer's arrow, driving your opponent damage crazy.

"damage" was emboldened and em-purpled, so I'm guessing that was psychic damage, but how much?

Craaaaaaaazy damage.

From the description of the overwhelmingly cool duster:
You don't usually see coats like this any more, but it looks heavy enough to withstand a just about anything...
and
And judging by how secretly jealous everyone is of this awesome coat, you can bet you bottom nickle that it's going to be unwelcome attention.

A nickle is a type of European woodpecker, but I don't think that's what you meant.

The coat is clearly too cool for school.

From the leering king's miss messages:
The king pours something on you that he says scalds like molten lead, but its not even above body temperature.
and
He just sits there in awkward silence and stares at you. It makes you want to hit him which, as look would have it, was kind of on the itinerary anyway.

From one of Gaius Cassius Clay's miss messages:
He points out that the fault is not in your stars, but in the stage right under your feet. You thank it and move to safer ground.

The last sentence of the pop-up description for the Superagent:

Also, the image for the Superagent is the same as the basic understudy (a big question mark).

When purchasing Floyd's dark prism:

"somewhat dazed"? "like someone dazed"?

I was apparently somewhat dazed when I wrote that. Thanks!

impractical jokester description

She's finds just about anything outrageously funny, but she's not particularly good at executing jokes because her plans are always so outrageous.


Also, although working okay with every other foe so far, the floyds prism message is clumped together with this foe's description so I guess a line break at the end of this foe's description is the best fix.

Tweaked, thanks! Let me know if it causes you any more problems.

You jump very high away your opponent and parachute back down.

"meditation"?

EDIT: From the "yo" dictionary pop-up:
The transcendantal power harnessed by yo-yo masters...
"transcendental"?

The Yo transcends spelling. Also, thanks.

also, from the pentapeony:

transcendant flying polyp

and
Cloaked in a glowing aura of transcendant Yo, <foe> rises from the ashes of defeat (or the not-burnt-stuff of undefeat, as the case may be).
