How did I miss this one?
After decrypting one of multiple mangled data plates:
Your watch beeps, reminding you that your computer has finished its decryption work.
You got an item: statistical analysis code
It's also automatically started up next item of the 3 in your queue. Because it's the future!

It looks like it's missing a "the" in there.

Fixed up, thanks!

One of the Pied Piper's attack messages:
Polly Esther plays a V on the pipes. You're not sure there actually exists, but it seems villains and ne'er-do-wells can hear it to the tune of 32 damage.

that?

The pit fiends' attack messages:

The fiend challenges you to a rock off. It rocks too hard because its not a mortal man. It hits you for 4 + 4 (sonic) damage.
The fiend tries to throw you into the fires of of the blue blazes, but you were forged in the fires of Twilight.

Also, somewhat amusing:
The varmint tries to freeze you, but there's some confusion as to whether the deepest circles of the inferno are hot or cold.


Fixed thanks! And, yeah, I'm a fan of that :)

One of the writhing mass's miss messages:
The mass lashes at you with... whatever its made out of. Thankfully, it doesn't seem to have eyes.

The corresponding hit message appears to be correct.

Fixed, thanks!

Here's another one I can't believe I missed, from the description of the key to the city
However, even your superhuman guessing skills can't tell you what city the key is for. It be Twilight, but it could also be Missoula.

Yarr, there be a missing "could" there!

Coulded! Thanks!

One of the pit fiends' miss messages:
The imp's madness begins to take its toll, but you take a jump to the left then a jump to the right.

If I remember the song correctly, that should be a "step" to the right.

"Put your hands on your hips, and pull your knees in tight..."

Better get my references rii-ii-iiii-ight.

One of Bryll Bison's miss messages:
Bryll pulls out a taser, but launching into a story about how he learned to use it rather than just shooting you.

"launches"?

Let's just launch that typo out the window, shall we? Thanks!

This really old one from half a decade(!) ago has yet to be fixed
Muhandes wrote: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)
The stars are right to fix these! Except for "this guy's bush league," which I don't think is wrong, just idiomatic.

Miss message for costumed thug(vampire):
The thug sinks his fangs into your wallet until you detatch him.

Also, combat messages for costumed thug(mummy) uses male pronouns, but gender is explicitly unknown in description ("He/she/it") and pronoun is "It".

Fixed! Even detach which I was totally like "of course that's spelled right, it's... dammit."

From One Good Turn Deserves Another (flying about downtown twilight)

You spend some time working on your airborne acrobatics, practicing sharp turns, loops, barrel rolls, and any other flying terminiology you can remember from that time you watched Top Gun. It takes a surprising amount of stamina, but it's good practice.

Fixed! Thanks.

The description of Z-ray goggles:

"This is"?

From the description of ion the prize:
Still, there's something to be said for it's unflinching stare,
Don't worry, Kinak. That same typo appeared in the original forum post.

For the "firebreather" opening:

You follow up with a devestating firebreathing round for 107 damage.

The cmworm's after-combat message:
Your cmworm's measurements are incredibly precise, but not exactly useful. You still learn enough about to gain 5 XP.

Maybe that "about" should be removed? Or is something missing after "about"?

It's all about that battle, that battle.

Doll shoves on to an invisible escalator that drags you through a terrifying advernture.
Hey, Vern! "shoves you on" and "adventure"

Sent those typos up to the invisible escalator in the sky. Thanks!

Shiloh has been labelled "Sanatarium" for many years, but the new signmaker might be a bit mad: "Sanitarium"?

(While "sanitarium" appears to be the more dominant spelling, "sanatarium" appears to also be accepted.)

Think I've got them rounded up, but all those a's do make me a little crazy.

Plural of weight on an oily rope:
You have 6 weight on an oily ropes in your inventory.

"weights on oily ropes"?

Fixed so they don't have to share the weight. Ropes are terrible at sharing.

The fighting robots' electric attack (day two of fighting robots):
The robot hits you with its ion cannon... which would be more impressive if it didn't have to literally throw the cannon at you. Must be something weird about the atmospher here. It hits you for 1 + 3 (electric) damage.
"atmosphere"?

EDIT - Fighting robots' sonic attack:
The robot fires a salvo of missiles near you. You gloat for a moment until the concussive waves hits you. It hits you for 1 + 6 (sonic) damage.
"waves hit"?

Should be good, thanks!

After defeating Alpha (before the space station is complete):
Some of these parts look like they use similar technology that mysterious gate.

Perhaps a preposition is missing after "technology"? Or maybe "technology similar to that"?

Clearly, that sentence shouldn't have made it out of alpha. Thanks!

One of the wrecked smasher's attacks:
He doesn't seem to get stronger the angrier he gets, but he does punch you more the angrier you gets.
"he"?
(I thought it was the smasher who was angry. You wouldn't like it if I got angry.)

Subject-verb disagreement also makes him angry. Thanks!

The soothing purple of the dreampants makes you feel better. Almost like royalty. You gain 24 HP.Being able to fly is letting you map this territory much faster than you would be able to on foot.

No space/paragraph breaks between dreampants and astral badlands activation message.

Should be good now, thanks!
