On page 69 of the scrapbook in the Warriors section, the epic item "Scary Mask of Severe Fright" has the item discription on the same line as the name, instead of down below in blue text. The actual item is written that way too.

I have a LOT, and I will get them to you. But here's one that has bugged me for a long time.

Gray and Grey. American or Briitsh spelling? The game uses both, but should settle on one. I understand that the German creators are more likely to use a British translator, but somehow both spellings are being used.

As noted in the Rules and Regulations, this server should stick with the North American version.

Don't forget to provide screenshots for everything! Use the [img]EMBED[/img] to embed pics for easy recording.

Right, I just spotted the contest rules.

As a Canadian, I'm going to point out that we use a mix of British spelling and American, but heavily weighted to the British. Colour, Grey, Armour, etc, so it's not North American spelling, it's American.

(For those that don't know, an American went through the English Dictionary and removed a bunch of unnecessary letters, especially 'u', from words and was successful in getting th e new version made official in the USA. It did not spread to Canada.)

Oh, and I'm going to claim the dragor in "I bring you fire" as mine. I clearly pointed it out in the Bugs thread weeks ago.

Aw, crud. I have a huge list of quest titles, and thought I had typed them out exactly as they were on screen... but I corrected them! I don't know which ones were wrong or right. Bah, game on...

"Gynx has Wallabee Champ has been promoted/degraded...etc"

This is not the best use of English I have seen

If we're capitalizing everything than the "Voodoo grimace of deterrence" should be "Voodoo Grimace of Deterrence".

and "The wall"- "The Wall"

the same can be said for all the epics past the first five...

also koopa I sent in a ticket about the mask + bread cutter like, two-three days ago, you sure those weren't me?
