One of the squawking radio companion's messages when failing to block:
The radio at your side broadcasts some goes off on some sort of tangent, but you and your opponent are too busy fighting to notice.

Got that tangent back on track, thanks! Also, welcome to lucky page 13!

Purchasing Twilight Devil's glasses:
The shopkeeper accepts your 5 silver stars for a pair of glasses. Frankly, with your jobs "benefits", it's a steal.

The pop-up description for the dragon pearl:
[the pearl from a dragon's head in Eastern Mythology? Or something weird.]

Also, the dictionary entry for "dark and gritty":
A relic of the Dark Age of Twilight, when heroes recovered from critical hits more slowly and had one extremely persistant reoccuring villain rather than the usual rogues gallery.
"persistent"

Fixed and, you know, added. Thanks!

Whoops, missed one. I was editing the wiki for "dark and gritty" when my browser highlighted another typo.
A relic of the Dark Age of Twilight, when heroes recovered from critical hits more slowly and had one extremely persistent reoccuring villain rather than the usual rogues gallery.

According to my dictionary, that should be "recurring"

Both words, but with subtly different meanings and I'm... fairly sure I was using the wrong one. I have recurring problems with English that are reoccuring. Thanks!

From the pop-up description for dragon hatchet:
This axes carries all the force of a mighty dragon or a territorial musk ox or particularly perturbed pangolin.
"This axis" or "These axes"?

This was wrong on every axis. Thanks!

Purchasing the prism collection:
You buy the shopkeeper's old prism collection for just 10 silver stars! What a bargin!

I normally take credit for these, but I'm going to go ahead and blame english. Bargain? Really? C'mon, english, you gotta up your game.

Okay, granted, most of the terrors is actually caused by people chasing after the bunny because it's delicious, but it's a disaster every spring.

Purchasing tabard pajamas of the imp
The shopkeeper looks up your geneology for 10 silver stars and gives you your ancestral pajamas. It's probably best if you assume some ancestor launched an entire career in crime fighting based on their fear of imps.

I looked it up. It should be genealogy.

Thanks!

From the pop-up description for the water carrier sidekick:
It turns out they don't just grow there, people come by constantly delivering them so you can get the latest news about the local sports teams and your coworkers kids.

That should be the possessive form: coworkers'

This typo wasn't my coworkers', it was mine. Thanks for the help!

Putting holes in the roof (Additional Ventilation):
Since smoke is hotter than air, you're pretty sure it float and, if you needed to ventilate some smoke out of a house, it stands to reason you'd need to put some holes in the roof. Right?

floats

It all floats down here, thanks!

This is what I started getting today when trying to use openings

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'cure_buffs' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ';' in /home/public/includes/combatopenings.php on line 488

Literally a grammatical error on my part, sadly. Should be good now!

From the pop-up for ye old toffee

It's still an open question whether this is toffee that has someone absorbed decades of temporal energy or whether toffee is itself congealed experiences.

Should that be removed?

Somehow. The toffee probably doesn't eat people.

One of the Mirror Protege's after-combat messages:
Polly Esther sets a camera on a timer to take a picture with you, which they procede to make a bunch of copies of and hand out to their friends. It seems strangely inefficient somehow.

The pop-up for Colonel's secret filter:
Even if you don't live on a desert planet or a space station, sometime it pays to filter your drinking water. Really, even most of your planet is covered with undrinkable water, so it'll help keep hydrated most everywhere.

Our planet.

"sometimes"? and "On our planet"?

Sometimes fixed, on this planet or wherever else you can reach our internet from.

The pop-up for Titan's terrarium:
Titan was a hero from Somerset-17, one of the seemingly endless alternate reality versions of Somerset that exist in the super-multi-verse. It's rumored that every time a major event happens, an alternate reality is spawned. You wouldn't happen to know anything about that would you?

Titan, like all waylaid people from different dimensions was sent to Professor Kirby's House for Extra-Reality Folks where his strange ways wouldn't affect the already confused denizens of Twilight. Despite her name, she wasn't related to Mr. Titanic, except for the fact that they're both gigantic and nigh-indestructible.

Titan kept her favorite plant and animal life from across Somerset-22 in this terrarium, using her size-changing powers to bend them to a more reasonable size. And some of those powers linger in it still.

Titanium is atomic number 22, while chlorine is atomic number 17.
Also, "her".

Chlorine Lad strikes again! *shakes fist at the heavens*

The plural of toffee torus:

Bonus text for Hero's Last Theorem -> Ask your computer

And you've learned the most important thing about computers today: the ability to put text over pictures and thereby illicit lulz. The future is a beautiful place.

Not sure if intentional / or for teh lulz.
(now imagine that over the appropriate picture)

In a dystopian future, where memes have been outlawed and lulz are banned, one man is still screwing up homophones...

Purchasing the Futurelink terminal:
The shopkeeper accepts your 10 silver stars in exchange for a contract with Futurelink. Thankfully, they haven't updated their rates for decades, so ten stars should cover you through the heat death of universe.
