    I'm looking for grammar, spelling and punctuation errors in quest dialogs, item names, books, etc.. Please post them here. For the next week, 11/26 - 12/2 I will be giving a 2 fame per error (up to 10 errors per npc) If enough are reported I will add a prize for the person that reports the most.


    First come first serve, only the first person to report an error will get credit.

    When reporting an error, please post the exact name of the NPC and the line that needs corrected so that I can find it easily.

    Post everything here along with your character name that you want to get the fame, please only one character. I don't want to spend my time splitting up fame between your alts. I'll be keeping track of them all and at the end of the week I'll give out the fame.

    Error #1: FIXED
    Item Name: Gemstone of the Si0xth Seeker (etc.)
    Line with Error: (Item name; see below)
    Correction: The various Ikisith-era SHM augs have extraneous zeros in their item names. (Apparently this was a short-lived in-joke in 2010; not sure if it counts as an error, but you can't blame me for thinking it it!)

    Error #2: FIXED
    NPC Name: A venemous slime
    Line with Error: (NPC name; see below)
    Correction: "Venemous" is spelled incorrectly; the NPC ought to be renamed "a venomous slime."

    Error #3: FIXED
    NPC Name: Ol' Grinner
    Line with Error: (NPC name; see below)
    Correction: Ol' Grinner ought to be respelled Ol` Grinner, as apostrophes in NPC names seem to be problematic for the client. When engaged, the mob gives truncated messages along the lines of "You punch Ol for 14 points of damage" and "Ol hits you for 23 points of damage," as the client apparently registers an apostrophe as a close quote or something. (Mentioned this once in S&R once but didn't receive any acknowledgment.)

    Error #4: FIXED
    Spell Name: Color Vortex
    Line with Error: Psychadelic colors scar your mind.
    Correction: That first word is misspelled; it ought to be "Psychedelic."

    Error #5: FIXED
    NPC Name: Logol (part of the quest "Helping Theron Ygnir")
    Line with Error: Logol Logol reads the letter, but remains silent.
    Correction: His name is duplicated in this emote.

    Error #5: FIXED
    NPC Name: Theron Ygnir (part of the quest "Helping Theron Ygnir")
    Line with Error: Theron Ygnir says, 'Great! Once you gathered all these things, you should get them to Logol.
    Correction: 'Once you gathered' > 'Once you have gathered' or 'Once you've gathered'

    Error #6: FIXED
    NPC Name: Theron Ygnir (part of the quest "Helping Theron Ygnir")
    Line with Error: [D2] What about an ethereal mace
    Correction: This dialogue option lacks a question mark.

    Error #7: FIXED
    NPC Name: Theron Ygnir (part of the quest "Helping Theron Ygnir")
    Line with Error: [D3] What is a fire crystal
    Correction: This dialogue option also lacks a question mark. (Oddly enough, [D1] and [D4], which are also questions, do have question marks.)

    Error #8: FIXED
    NPC Name: Emkedo Tarillingord (part of the quest "The Transportation Matrix")
    Line with Error: Emkedo Tarillingord says, 'I heared of an old and powerfull artifact that is rumored to be found in the old Oggok from before the Fall.
    Correction: "Heared" should be "heard," and "powerfull" should be "powerful."

    Error #8: FIXED
    NPC Name: Emkedo Tarillingord (part of the quest "The Transportation Matrix")
    Line with Error: You say, 'I thought old Oggok was lost to the jungle and never heared off again?'
    Correction: "Heared off" should be "heard of."

    Error #9: FIXED
    NPC Name: Emkedo Tarillingord (part of the quest "The Transportation Matrix")
    Line with Error: Emkedo Tarillingord says, 'It was, untill recently! One of my collegues in Newport, Torgilin Darkheart, found plans on how to construct a device that allows one to locate this "Transportation Matrix", or atleast he claimed so.'
    Correction: "Untill" should be "until," and "atleast" should be two words. (Also, he uses the colloquial "cause" in place of "because" in the following line, which probably ought to be fixed even though it's not a typo.)

    Error #10: FIXED
    NPC Name: Emkedo Tarillingord (part of the quest "The Transportation Matrix")
    Line with Error: You say, 'How is that my problem? I have far better things to do then running around looking for idiots who managed to get themselfs lost!'
    Correction: "Then" ought to be "than," and "themselfs" ought to be "themselves."

    Error #11: FIXED
    Spell Name: Spell: Conduit: Murk
    Line with Error: Grinklessinks into the earth.
    Correction: A space must be inserted between the player's name and "sinks."

    Error #12: FIXED
    NPC Name: Captain Thalas (part of the quest "Newport Ring III")
    Line with Error: "Oh, by the way... present to him your ring in addition to the letter - I have requested he gives you a new ring, as your status within the guard has been raised to Sergeant."
    Correction: "I have requested he gives you a new ring" > "I have requested that he give you a new ring" (A subjunctive nitpick, but the very beginning of NP Ring IV has Sergeant Halsey using the subjunctive properly! :p)

    Error #13: FIXED
    Item Name: Spleandor of the Overgrowth
    Line with Error: (Item name; see below)
    Correction: Unless this is some kind of in-joke among the staff, "spleandor" ought to be spelled "splendor."

    My character name: Grinkles

    Ashpyre / An Eternal Well: FIXED

    Line with Error: As Tipikaele holds the talisman into the well's flame white strands of burning energy lance around and into the ancient artifact. Suddenly the flames calm as ***Ashwynd*** is powered to repletion.

    Correction: (if you want to)
    As Tipikaele holds the talisman into the well's flame white strands of burning energy lance around and into the ancient artifact. Suddenly the flames calm as ***Ashpyre*** is powered to repletion.

    *special note* i'm not good with this kind of stuff usually but i think there should either be a comma or semi'colon between "flame and white"

    Char name = Crynel

    This isn't a typo. Cyzaine did this on purpose when I was doing the quest originally because he had actually put a typo in the th0ird seeker aug. After I bitched and moaned about it, he did it on all of the shaman augs.

    While brooding over books in the shinra mansion, Sephiroth spouts out, "You ignorant traitor. I'll tell you. This Planet originally belonged to the Cetra. Cetra was a itinerant race..." It should say an itinerant race.

    Ruined my immersion.
