The things to be clarified thread has too broad a scope to be useful for finding typos, so here's a thread for them all to their own:

1)

Secondly, I started my first game with 'Invasion Mode' on, and immediately when I began, the town was being invaded by skeletons/zombies. A lot of NPCs died and were too turned into zombies. When people mentioned a particular NPC dying in this case (I'm not sure if it's because they were turned into zombies, or if it counts as me killing the NPC myself), what they were killed by would be blank. E.G.: 'Too bad Ward (Weaponsmith) got killed by a .'

2)

I had a quest from a Townsperson because they were starving. The quest text says: 'X has no money and is starving. If no help, X will likely starve to death. ...' I suppose it should say something like 'Without help' instead of 'If no help'.

The description of the quest has a typo too. "If no help, <townsperson> will likely starve..." should be "If she receives no help..."

3)
The Rabbit's Paw achievement just reads weird to me.

"Unlocks after having a character with at least +500% magic chance"

I believe how this should read is:

"Unlocks after having a character with at least +500% magic find chance"

4) [More a style inconsistency than a strict typo]
One other little oddity. I've gotten two of the new townsperson quests so far, the aforementioned starving quest and the mining quest, and the descriptions for the quests are inconsistent with the base game's writing. All the original quests are written from the first person, ie, "Deliver this package for me", whereas the new ones are all from the third, "Whitney has no money and is starving." I'm not sure if this is an issue to you Shadow, but I thought I'd point it out.

5)

Finally, the wording on the "mine gold" quest is off. One part says, "...but it's a bit too dangerous for them." Them should be replaced with either him or her, or with the NPC's name. The current wording just sounds wrong. Also, the "special gold vein" might better be referred to as the "specific gold vein".

6)
Demon Armor (Demonologist): Using pieces of vanguished demons [should be vanquished]

7) Status text: The Overlord Zealous Cavern Level 2 has sent Lutin (an Imp) to block a gate!

Should it be The Overlord [of], or is Zealous Cavern Level 2 actually a sentient being that orders things to its will? Given that zealousy is a human quality, and that most of our deaths are probably by the environment, I'm not so sure, but...

Thanks for putting this thread together Nobear.

As a general comment about the achievements, I think they could all use a bit of clarification on whether:

1) The achievement applies to a single character achievement.
2) Whether the achievement applies to all of the characters controlled by the human being playing the game.

For example, the achievement for a "Rogue who has been granted freedom" is clear.

The criterion for the achievement "Unlocks after finding 100 GP" is not clear to me.

The criterion for the achievement "Unlocks after finding 100 GP" is not clear to me.

I was wondering about this one too. Is it finding a pile of 100GP at once? Gathering 100GP total over a single character's adventuring career? 100GP total in a character's inventory at once?

Shadow

In this case I believe it is finding 100GP across all of your characters.

Ok, thanks for the clarification Shadow :)

One more achievement typo. Both Envy and Golden Armor misspell equipment as equipement.

In the spell description for Demon Armor, it says "Using pieces of vanguished demons," - it should be vanquished, not vanguished.

EDIT: Another text issue is with the mining quests. The NPC talks to me in third person ("Christings was planning on doing some mining down in the dungeons today, but it's a bit too dangerous for them" when Christings is the person talking to me. Shouldn't the name be replaced with "I", and "them" with "me"?). The quest completion window also states "Talk to the Christings in [Dungeon level where vein is] when the quest is completed"; that's where the vein was sure enough, but the NPC is in town. It should just say "Talk to Christings when the quest is completed."

In the World Setup screen the modifier "Raging Hoards" should be spelt "Raging Hordes", unless of course it creates a world of kleptomaniac leprechauns or something of the sort:D

The Circle of Power skill uses an opening parenthesis in its description but never closes it.

The bestiary description for Demon Gate should say, "Not much is known of the..." and "its self" should be "itself".

After failing one of the Cure Bob quests, the quest name changes to Cure (failed), and it loses the person's name.

There's a different problem now with the wording of the mining quest. It ends in an incomplete sentence with no period, and has redundant wording. I'll update the next time I get the quest, to suggest alternate wording.

Version 1.012 fixes the Raging Hordes check box, but if you hover over it, it still says Raging Hoards.

At the top of the new world creation screen it says "Setup World". It should either be "Set Up World" or "World Setup".

"<townname> would have been destroyed with out you!" It should be "without" in this case.

One of the boss monster's names is Eyes=. In my specific case, it was a Protector.

I thought this issue was already posted somewhere, but I can't find it now.

Doreleano killed Maurene while I was down in the dungeon. I came up and talked to him afterwards, to which he declared "Too bad Maurene (Townsperson) got killed by a ." His roommate/buddie says the same thing.

These aren't all typos, but they are all related to the writing/text in the game, so this is as good a place as any to post I suppose.

1. The "quell town attack" quest needs an apostrophe after the name of the monster type attacking the town in the quest's name. As an example, I had "Quell the Wraths town attack," which should be "Quell the Wraths' town attack."

2. When the game announces the a town's need for "Cruel Torva Headdresses" it pluralizes improperly and says "Cruel Torva Headresss."

3. Also, when the town announces they've found a Teleport Stone it needs to give more info in the message. Right now it just says "Teleport Stone found." That's a little misleading and makes it sound like you as the player have just discovered and picked up a Teleport Stone.

4. The help text about ego items doesn't yet mention that they can level up. Aside from this it should also contain some information about how they level up and the effects of doing so.

5. When you use a life steal shrine the description for the popup of its effect is a little unclear. It says it gives "50% life steal" but doesn't say what that 50% is of. I'm guessing it's 50% of your damage but it ought to tell us.

6. The world modifier listings for the different sorts of machines ought to tell you what their effect is in addition to "there is an anti-magic machine creating areas of anti-magic". I've seen some players on the forum wondering what the effects of the new machines are, so this is definitely info that's needed.

7. The Sentinel item modifier should probably be "Sentinel's".

8. The descriptions for the various poisoned supplies quests would sound better if the word "fix" were replaced by "cleanse" or "purify". Same deal with "cure the curse" quests, it'd sound better to replace "fix" with "cure" in the description.

The world modifier Rowdy: Fights are more likely to break our in town. [should be out]

Not really a typo per se, but imagine my surprise when I received a quest to get information from Taylorraine. :D Didn't know if this was on purpose.

Just google Taylor Rain.

While we do have a few references here and there on purpose, none of them are about any porn stars. :)

That's really funny. Shadow, where did you get those lists of names anyway? O.o. No seriously, I'm curious.

That's really funny. Shadow, where did you get those lists of names anyway? O.o. No seriously, I'm curious.

We just have a large list of male and female names for the NPCs and the random name generator pieces them together based on how the names in the list are put together.

In this case it is probably a combination of Taylor and Lorraine.

Off hand I don't remember, probably just Delilah looking at lists of names and adding ones that fit the setting.

I would like my girlfriend Julie to get credit for noticing this one: one of the messages that sometimes plays when you fail a town reads "This is not the path the redemption." Should be "to redemption." No, she didn't fail it, she watched me fail it :( haha.

The description for the Reaver speciality's skill Fire Strike reads " + x% Physical Damage"; should be " + x% Fire Damage" instead.

Also, shouldn't Fire Strike be affected by Fire Mastery? I'm asking because Fire Mastery's description doesn't mention it.

"The Overlord Painbiter has setup Nadar as the new Boss of level 1." Setup is a noun. You want set up.

"The Overlord Painbiter has setup Nadar as the new Boss of level 1." Setup is a noun. You want set up.

The Overlord quest description contains this typo as well :
"They can even setup bosses." should be "They can even set up bosses."
