One of Mr. Titanic's attacks:
Mr. Titanic grabs and girder and, instead of bending it like he's supposed to, smashes you with it.

Fixed my titanic typo. Thanks!

Going back to Grizzly Washington to finish the Rejected Rogue Ranch Rascals Require Retribution quest as a Naturalist
Washington lets out a booming laugh as you act out your victory against the Triumphant and Terrible Titan of Towering Testosterone, "Man, that fight reminds me of my glory days! Here, let me give you a little something in thanks. Oh, any feel free to keep bringing those tchotchkes if you find any more; my wife loves those things."

Thanks! And feel free to keep reporting typos :)

You punch out a door and find a chocolate shaped like a sheep. Maybe today in a sheep-shearing holiday.

Fixed. Don't I feel sheepish.

The Backstage end-of-round special attack:
A weight drops in the distance. You don't pay it much attention until the rope it's attached to loops around your foot at drags you away from your opponent. That'll make it pretty hard to use your fist.
and? (Oh, and good job on making it work with an empty weapon slot! :) )

One of the king ZOM-I's misses:
That one pistol is supposed to be water, and is it.
it's it is?

EDIT: Also, the queen ZOM-I's ice attack message is identical to the corresponding miss message. I don't know if that was deliberate.

Thanks for all of those! And glad you noticed the empty weapon slot text :)

The plural of hook on a string [1728] is "hook on a strings".

I've got a fever and the only cure is more hook.

The mick's acid attack and miss:

Ace pauses to let you admire how the artisnal acid runs off his weapon before stabbing you with it.

Ace pauses to let you admire how the artisnal acid runs off his weapon, giving you time to dodge his eventual strike.

artisanal?

Certain errors are bound to creep in with artisanal spelling.

Dr. Somnus catches you with her Sleep Ray then lets the animals gnaw on your unconcious form for X damage.

Dr. Somnus catches you with her Sleep Ray, inflicing you with a serious case of narcolepsy in the middle of a stampede. It ends about as you'd expect, with X damage.

Fixed some sleepy typos, thanks!

And, if you ever get tired of nostalgia, these ears might event get VBS.
even

From rabbit ears (untuned)
And you can wear them on your head like the classic show My Favorite Earthling? What do you mean you don't do that?
Should that question mark be a period instead?

I am not sure if this was intentional, also from untuned
They got all the channels, if you held the base at a twenty-five degree arrow while...

Wow. Even I don't know what happened with the last one. Should be good now, though. Thanks!

While it's spelled correctly in the announcements on the main page, Goldbergium is misspelled as Golbergium in-game on at least the Shiloh subzone map, the title of the page itself, and the description with no relevant items ("Of course, those crystals are Golbergium!").

Ah! Inconsistent spelling. I've been a rube!

You swing down the comically large mallet you found in the corner. That smashes, crushing the bag of matchheads. That bursts into flames, heating the oily rope. That drops the weight, crushing the leg. It kicks forward, pushing the basin. It spills the water, watering the cat. It howls with indignation, startling the elephant. That sprays water everywhere in surprise, watering the hose. That fires its cork forward, shooting the tiny target. It opens the dunking door, watering the water saw. It shoots out a cutting jet of water, cutting the balloon. That pops, startling the rhino. It charges forward recklessly, pushing the toggle. That pulls back, pulling the bottom of the mallet. That brings the hammer down, crushing the reinforced handle. That closes the scissors with great force, cutting the rope. It drops the anvil, crushing the water main. It releases a geyser of water, watering the water wheel. It reels in the pulley, pulling the trigger. That activates the blowtorch, heating the sprinkler. It sprays, watering the sodium. It bursts into flames, heating the fire alarm. That howls at ear-splitting volume, startling the monkey. That chucks a banana, shooting the switch. That hauls in with the winch, pulling the trigger. It fires the squirt gun, watering the toy boat. That floats downstream, pushing the rusty hinge. It shriek open, startling the dog. It bites whatever's in front of it, cutting the restraint. It fires the slingshot, shooting the gong. It reverberates through the chamber, startling the horse. It gets back to work hauling, pulling the trigger. That fires the cork, shooting the switch. It sends the knife buzzing to life, cutting the restraint. That releases the rolling stone, pushing the brazier. It spills out the coals, heating the bottle rocket. That zips off, shooting the mousetrap. That snaps shut with crushing force, crushing the totter side. It sends the marble flying, shooting the jar. That spills coals everywhere, heating the steam engine. It pushes the piston, pushing the tower. That sends it crashing down, crushing the bicycle horn\s bulb. It honks deafeningly, startling the fire ant. It spits fire, heating the steam engine. It reels in the pulley, pulling the chalk. That shrieks across the chalkboard, startling the gorilla. It pounds the nearest object with his hammer, crushing the basket. That gathers the rope in moments, pulling the hook. That slices, cutting the pouch. It bursts into flame on contact with air, heating the chainsaw. That spins up with a roar, cutting the rope. That reels in the pulley, pulling the trigger. It extends the boxing glove, pushing the bellows. It pops out the cork, shooting the mousetrap. That sends the car hurtling down the track, pushing the saw. It slices forward, cutting the water balloon. It splashes everwhere, watering the mill. It grinds, crushing the safe.

The typo report goes to the dev, who edits the text. The text changes the output, which removes the typo.

Purchasing Midas Lens-

The shopkeeper looks at your 10 stars through Midas Lens, wrinkling his brow in confusion, tries to give you change before realizing the stars are only silver.

Should there be a  "the" or "a" before "Midas Lens"? And perhaps a "then" before "tries"?

Not all that glitters is gold... some of it is surely typos. Thanks!

It looks like some of the killer x-ray's attacks have mixed-up pronouns. For example:
He pounds you with its bony fists, adding some artistic elements to your next X-ray. He hits you for 21 damage.

Gendered! Thanks.

Multi-using May flower arrangements:
You carefully transport the flower display from its native land to your hideout, opening it up and carefully removing all the flowers. Then decide one trip wasn\'t enough.

Multi-using bouquets of May hellebores (and also all of the other May flowers):
You track down the tiskets and a taskets spoken of in legend, somehow managing to restrain the raw power of your flowers after a mighty quest.

I'm not sure if that was deliberate (considering the reference), or if the "a" should be removed.

Fixed both, thanks!

This bouquet is nice, but it isn\'t really complete, you know?

One of the black-market herbalist's misses:
The herbalist offers to you a complementary course of traditional electroconvulsive therapy, but that's one of those cases where the old kind was never better.

I looked it up. "Complementary" means "completing; forming a complement".
Perhaps you meant "complimentary", which means "given or supplied free of charge".

EDIT: I ran into Dr. Park while verifying this one. Woo-hoo!

Fixed, thanks! And see, reporting typos brings good luck. That's science :)

In combat, when Overclocked Tango activates:
Doctor sword starts playing a tune to get you pumped, but gets stuck on the "accelerando" and just never stops, until the fight is blurring by before your eyes.

You gain an effect: Overclocked Tango (Added for 30 minutes.)

"Sword" was capitalized in every other instance.

Fixed, Thanks!


EDIT: I was about to report "woking" in the purchase message, but I finally got the joke. :)

That moment when you realize there's an awful pun, so good... :mrgreen:

Setting off a Goldbergian chain with a rusty hinge in it:
It pushes the piston, pushing the rusty hinge. That shriek open, startling the gorilla. It pounds the nearest object with his hammer, crushing the safe.

"shrieks"
Also, the gorilla has mixed-up pronouns, both "it" and "his".

When I had an urban explorer sidekick and an explorer's journal - economic equipped, there was no space between the two after-combat sidekick messages:
Polly Esther points out a few nooks and crannies you hadn't noticed during the fight. You gain 9 XP.Your sidekick's economic predictions help you find 47 additional chips.

I haven't checked the other explorer's journals yet.

Should be good, but let me know if any of the others give you problems.

Missing a "he" in there.

From the description of caught Deacon Frostheim:
For years he didn't pose much of threat, but...
Missing a "a" in there.

From the description of caught Lightning Bug (not Firefly):
This particular glowy file offers to weaponize your watch, presumably by making it so discharging the battery.
Huh? Maybe "by making it discharge the battery"? or "by discharging the battery"?

There may be more to come as I slowly catch 'em all.

The congrat's message when overridden by a blocking sidekick-
Your congrat considers throwing a barrel at your opponent, but gets distracted applauding your sidekick instead..

According to Cristiona (in the wiki), this is the text for the Enter Initials badge-
The instructor complements you on scoring over ninety thousand and hands you a merit badge.

To complement means to add to something in a way that completes it.
To compliment means to politely praise or congratulate.

Is anyone else getting deja vu?

The deja vu completes me.

While fighting ZOMega:
The ZOMega fires its Shooting Shot. Living up to your name, the shot fires dozens of smaller shots, all of which hit you for a total of 108 damage.

The fight is now over, and it's not pretty.

Rest at your hideout

Or go back to the Heavy Industry District

Or go back to the main page.


Anyway, everything after the damage was emboldened.
Also, the "your" should probably be "its".

Stopped it from living up to other people's names. That's rude.
