Title: Typos!
Post by: Gavin Mace on November 04, 2016, 03:08:18 AM
I decided to make a separate thread to add to over time so that these don't become lost/drowned in Minor Bug Reports. I'll include typos, bad grammar, and unclear phrasing (or phrasing that could be improved) here.

ITEMS

(http://i.imgur.com/nj59q0i.png)

Should be 'do', not does.

Ravenclaw is a type of bramble, earning its name from the slightly curled, pointy twigs that appear like the claws of a bird.

Its. Also, we're missing the word 'flavor' after 'delicate'.

(http://i.imgur.com/jWTkYgG.png)

What the heck is a 'lumb'.



CONVERSATIONS/NPCs

Demands for wood have risen, but the trees deeper inside Itu Skoven to the south are useless for construction. They rot too quickly, almost surprisingly so. Thus, we have to harvest what we can near the river and to the north.

You're and welcome.
Also, there needs to be a space after 'burn!'.



OTHER

The road from this point on has been taken by the weather. The lack of travel and maintenance has left most of it gone.

Demand for wood has risen is correct. It's the demand that has risen. Demand have risen sounds weird. Edit: I think the last one is fine too, it's not a run-on sentence. The second half is directly related to the first half.

Edit 2: Oh hey I just noticed, the first one says demandS. So either "demand for wood has" works, or "demands for wood have."

The second half was removal of the (redundant) repetition of 'quick'. It flows better with 'so' at the end, which required the first word of the following sentence being changed to 'thus'. It's not really a big deal if it's kept the way it was, though. So long as that 'to' is fixed. Hiss.

The ring of warmth description needs some attention, as soon as I see one I'll screen shot it. As does the camp fire menu, it says "Throw dirt at the fire". None of my characters would have any desire to "throw dirt at a camp fire" to put it out, they would just rather "extinguish the fire". Photobucket is down for maintanence currently so when it's up I'll upload.

There are so many "typo's", I'm not a native speaker and even I see them, I stopped caring.

Currently the problem with the wording 'Throw dirt at the fire' implies that you are actually throwing dirt at the fire to put it out, which would be quit fruitless, and nonsensical. So I think 'extinguish the fire', 'smother the fire' or 'stamp out the fire' would be much more appropriate and correct.

I've fixed all those, except for the area description one (last one in the original post) since I didn't know which area it was referring to.
Title: Re: Typos!
Post by: Gavin Mace on January 08, 2017, 07:21:13 PM
I'll try and find the area name, sorry about that! I know it's one of the Retezat areas.
Title: Re: Typos!
Post by: Arawn on January 09, 2017, 01:03:36 AM
It's the first Retezat area that attaches to the Wachter road, if that helps. Goes right into the side of the long road area before the Crossroads at the Estate.

Can you report any typos in loading screens, spells, feats, abilities, etc?

I've noticed that some load screens that have gameplay tips have too much text, so they cut off mid sentence. It's really hard for me to screenshot them though because my computer loads areas in seconds.

Two mistakes I have noticed, Fur Lined Boots, and Worg Fur Boots. I suspect many of the crafted clothing need to be examined.

Quote
This pair of boots has been made by the fur of a wolf.

This pair of boots has been made by the fur of a worg.


This is not correct, the boots where not made by a reanimated Wolf or Worg fur.

It would be correct to say...

This pair of boots have been crafted using the pelt of a (insert animal).

The ring of the warmth could use an overhaul in its description, I don't have the item in my possession to type it out, but the first three lines appear to have been taken from the entry for the Ring of Lessar Warmth from Havvy Homebrew on the D&D Wiki, see the full description here...

Quote
Havvy's Homebrew

The ring of warmth makes the wearer feel a minimum temperature of what is necessary to feel warm. For example, a human would feel a minimum of 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 Celsius). This ring has no effect if the wearer is in temperature that is higher than what is considered warm for it or if the wearer is undead, a plant, a construct, or otherwise unliving. This effect is entirely illusory, though it feels like an Endure Elements spell of CL 3. This is a Mind-Affecting Effect.

Now if this is a players submitted content please don't take offence to this but what I feel should be corrected are the use of brackets, references to Celcius and Fahrenheit, the medical term hypothermia, and the structure of the sentences, it doesn't flow well.

My suggestion just going from my own memories...

This magical ring has been enchanted to protect the owner from suffering ill affects from the environment in cold regions, the enchantment works differently depending on whomever or whatever creature wears it, in that whatever temperature is preferred by the wearer they will always feel the magical warmth that the enchantment brings. It has been noted that some creatures who are capable of wearing rings, that do not suffer ill affects from the cold, receive no benefit from wearing the ring.

Vicar Miklos of the Village of Barovia Morninglordian church states that (if you have a key for the dungeon that leads to the zombie champions and juju variations) the key may lead to the metal door on the "northwest" end of the building. However, it's the northeast side of the building the metal door is at.

A very minor typo and some missing text.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems that there is an additional blank space(s) in potion of death armor: "a   magical aura"

It seems that there's an unclosed color tag in the Watcher Steward dialogue, shouldn't be the part after [] in white?:

This post has several typos: https://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=5823.msg58587#msg58587

Since it's pinned and reposted several times, thought they could be fixed, a couple in particular.

Also, these could help you as a reminder prior to your posting.

Discussions, arguments, debates... They all should be handled the same way.

Guidelines

1) Do not force your beliefs on someone.

2) Forcing your beliefs onto someone else, even if provided with good reasoning, can push people away.

3.a) The objective is to inform as best you can, and let them decide on their own.

3.b) Use facts as much as impossible, try to stay away from opinions, to back up your thoughts. Use credible, non-biasunbiased sources to help back you up.

4) You have to understand that your beliefs are YOURS, not someone else's.

5) Do not Stero-typestereotype, categorize, or anything else along those lines. It portraysevidences ignorance, which again, will turn people away from your beliefs, regardless of how well you put your point across.

6) Refrain from making bigoted, racists, and biased remarks. Same reason as above.

7a) Remain open-minded,; you don't have to agree with someone to listen to them. That is the point of an argument. If you already agreed on everything, there would be no reason for the argument in the first place.

7b)If you enter into one with the idea in your head "I don't care what he says, I'm not changing my mind," Tthen that is ignoranceobstinacy.

8.) Don't twist people's words and make them out to be saying something that you know they weren't trying to say. Secondly, everyone knows communication can be difficult. So rather then jumping on someone's case instantly, if you feel there is something that could be misunderstood/misinterpreted, ask them to clarify.

9) Do not jump to conclusions. This also reflects on rule #8, as they may not haveof been finished putting their point across, or they may have messed up somewhere along the line and it could simply be a misunderstanding.

10) Don't be a smart ass. Or rather, don't bring sarcasm into a serious discussion. For one, it's very easy to misinterpret something via forums, and two, it doesn't really have a point to it in this type of setting.

11) Don't get offended and start acting all defensive. That will just make things harder... and like-wise, don't say offensive things with no other intention thenthan to offend someone.

12) Use common sense. This should be applied to all of the above rules. If there is a source that sticks to only one side of something, it may be biased. Check for other sources that give facts about both sides of something. That is an example of applying common sense to finding/reading sources... it's not just limited to that.
