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!

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.

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.

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*
