Fixed. Gah. I had a 50/50 chance of deleting the right letter from the word "an" and I got it wrong.

Wouldn't the guns make the "greater danger" quite obvious? They would belie the cute first impression.

No, the misspelling is intentional.

I even have that word as a link to a page that explains why it's not a typo.

I don't know if anyone's mentioned this, but the title is incorrect:

"Spelling and grammar errors" should read "Spelling and grammatical errors"

;) :lol:

Noticed this one today after buffing myself with Air Shield:

You thicken the air around you. (Added for **** minutes.)

It should read "yourself".

Probably won't much matter, but the practical joker is a little confused:

Your opponent attacks ... She positions a bucket so that when you approach the bucket tips and is supposed to drop paint on you. The bucket tips, and falls, hitting you in the head as well as coating you in paint. Joke's on you! He hits you for 5 + 1 () damage.

Totally. You know, like MLK Junior's famous "I have a drean" speech.

Or the techno song "Dreaner Drean." Or Depeche Mode's "Drean On."

Drean!

When using the Aegis Shield
You release a blast powerful heat from the surface of your shield.

missing the word "of" and
Sheltered behind the shield you're only slightly discomfited, but it rattles your foe with 31 damage

are we supposed to be embarrassed when using this or should the word be discomforted?

You gain some of your opponent's energy. You gain 1 power points.

If you weren't such a pansy, you'd hit for real damage and not have that problem :P

From the "Who Are You Calling Vile" adventure.

Hidden amidst the thick, jungle-like vegetation, you find what looks like a hermit's shack on the outside, but turns out to me more like a hermit's laboratory on the inside.

Should be to be.

From calling an airstrike:

A few seconds later it zip overhead on remote control, and drops a load of armament on your opponent. Your opponent takes 606 + 606 damage.
Shouldn't that be "zips"?

Using a Twilight gold card a second time:

You drop another credit card off at the police station. Rand is pleased by what you've learned from Lefty so far, and encourages hime to show you around some more.


Lefty Hime, common East Coast name from what I've heard.
But you are right, Ryme should make that a capital H.
