Using "shot" in There's a Blog.Org for This:

When using an N-barrel below the level req:

Playing it safe, you dial it back to 1, and get a normal-looking shotgun.

(in reality you dial it back to 2)

The message when you try to use a shop without proper transportation is:

You don't have the range to reach this store.The store's range is M and your current range is N

It is missing a space after the first dot and a dot at the end.

[Normal] Satan: ... it took being drunk to see this 'typo'? There's an extra space before the third option in the renegade robot hive multi-choice >.>

Alternatively, maybe the other two are missing spaces. I can't recall the convention.

In Play it really safe:

Lassie, Let's Go Home : XP and chip gains are on the same line
What, No Bagger was on Duty? : XP and chip gains are on separate lines

Also, "Cinametic" popup uses unique names for the modifiers

The manual entry for Endurance seems to be wrong

Equation: +3 + (X/2) HP; bonus point at 10

Max: +10 HP

My math is 3+10/2+1=9

Also, duration is 15+X, this isn't mentioned

Also also, duration for proper grounding isn't mentioned either

Also also also, text for Mind Poke doesn't make sense:

Equation: 3-6 + X psychic damage; capped at 10 + X

Max: 13-16 psychic damage; capped at 20

From hoy, from the new quest:

All foes in the "fighting robots" have the description:

"Out of the mechanical fray, a robot confronts you.."

with an extra (or missing) dot.

They also have names like "a treaded robot" instead of the name being "treaded robot".

Mouths of Darkness

You venture into cave 8. So far you have gone through 4 sections of it.
Flood!
The back of the cave turns into a warm, damp hole in the ground, large enough to climb into. You start to work your way down, but a gurgling hiss from below catches your attention. With shock you have time to realize that water is rushing up at your from below, before a geyeser of water blasts you back out of the cave, scalding you as it rolls you mercilessly against the rough rock walls. You lose 61 HP.

A superfluous r on the end of "rushing up at you".
A superfluous e in geyser.

Already reported, about 6 posts above. As a guideline, if it's already marked in the wiki, it's already reported.

Two things, the latter of which I forgot to copy and paste. If you equip a suit, then equip a pair of pants, it says:

"Shirt unequipped.
You equip the pants."

When clearly it's a suit you're unequipping to get that message.

Second, when you relearn a skill in a run that you already know, the message has a large typo in it. I believe it's an extraneous you or they near the beginning of the sentence, I don't recall. In any case it's wrong >.>

Consume message for smart juice:

You drink the smart juice. It makes your brain expand, until you can calculate a way to stay out for another half hour or so.You also feel smarter. You get 10 XP.

"You need to check the box to verify you reall mean you're ready to go. Sorry, I know it's silly, but it's a necessary precaution."

It will be a year till we can see these again, but there are several typos in the arcadian:

In the description:

This guy is either a creepy fetishist, or he's dressed as one of those non-Spartan Arcadian guys from that one movie will all the yelling and killing. Hopefully the latter.

should be "with all the yelling"

In his miss messages (I couldn't get him to hit even my level 1 gadgeteer):

He starts screaming, but you'd had enough of this nonsense and these references. You kick him in a conveniently placed pit.

you've had enough, into a conveniently placed

He starts complaining, but you've dealt with customer service reps before, and this guy's bush league.

this guy is bush league (OK, this is actually a figure of speech, but it's not his bush)

Multi use for benefits package is the same as single use:

You open the file and read over the benefits.

Should probably be "files"

"You still need 4873 XP to go to the next levelThe instructor eyes your getup and says, "You know, you almost have some kind of costume going there. If I didn't know better, I'd think you were preparing for Halloween. Or some kind of theatrical performance."

This is the special message for wearing 4 of the 5 items necessary for the newly discovered costume badge. Period and space needed.

Money Bunny is referred to as "she" in the description text, but the combat messages refer to her as "he".

The pronouns for Moldin' Grams appear to be correct.

When using bug pill:
You eat the bug pill and immediately get a little buzz. It's nothing like a caffeine buzz, though you do feel quick and twitchy. You get an effect, Bee's Knees. (Added for 90 minutes.)

Actual effect is called The Bee's Knees

Two typos fell in the latest manual update, in the retcon page, last FAQ:

grey sand - the item is called gray sand (or the spoonerism fails)

Already reported - on the first page. You also missed two other typos in the same text, see wiki :D

Four inconsistencies noticed in names of items in the Wok.

First three are capitalization issues. In shops items usually follow the item's name capitalization. Not so with the following three:

Mystical slouch of sorcerous mayhem

Gold Star

10 Silver Stars

The last one:

1 empty picture frame - not sure why "1"

The description of Magnetron is "magnetron generally leans toward [...]" when his name should probably have an uppercase "M".

Super minor.
