Hello.

 

I figured I'd start a master thread where to collect all typos and punctuation-, grammar-, and syntax-related mistakes we run into in the backer beta.

 

I'll provide screenshots of each I find to facilitate their finding on the devs' part.

 

I would ask Obsidian to confirm whether these will be looked at, for there would be no point in keeping an eye out for them otherwise; appreciate they are minor issues compared to most other things right now, so it would be understandable.

 

 

  • In the mouse-over text for Kohopa: a) "Many Huana worship Berath as of Rikuhu"; I believe "of" should be omitted. b) "...two constituent eels, Kohopa..."; I believe a colon is in order after "constituent eels". c) Never mind the third underlined item in the screenshot; I've changed my mind about it ;)

I'm omitting threads with typos that have already been acknowledged by QA.

Hey guys,

 

Thanks for making this =)

 

I think this is a great idea! It would be real nice to have all the typos in the same place like we do for the missing strings.

 

Unfortunately I have no idea how to pin a post (or if I even have that kind of power here), but I'll ask someone to do it tomorrow so this thread will always be at the top of the first page.

Descriptive text for Battlewizard Grimoire, Level 2, Engwithan Ruins:

Begins with "[Temp]..." The rest of the description looks alright, albeit brief.

"effecting" should be "affecting":

"explative" should be "expletive":

Compound adjectives that include an adverb never hyphenate (but if they've been consistently hyphenated throughout the game, it may be too much of a hassle to correct them all):

I believe the correct structure for this sentence requires a "to" there (i.e. "better to X than to Y"):

Is the spell called mirrowed image or images?

The trickster learns also image, without s

On my second playthrough I activated the option that you can see the answers you cannot select.

In all other cases so far it showed the reason why I could not select it (wrong race, class, background, . . .), but not in this case.

Another missing requirement for not being able to chose an option.

I consider this a text error, so I post it here.

 

In combat, in the character screen and in the upper part of the text in the talent tree the sharpshooter class gets PERMANENTLY +2 penetration and 15% hit -> crit with ranged weapons.

In the lower part of the talent tree says that you get 15% hit -> crit when attacking targets further away than 4m OR +2 penetration when the target is closer than 4m. This would mean that you cannot have both effects at once.

 

The combat log shows that you can have both effects at once, so the lower description of the talent tree is wrong and everything else is correct.

In the Conjurer subclass's description, there's a missing line break between the two penalties listed (all other classes have a line break between each penalty):

In the description of Thrust of Tattered Veils, there appears to be an extra space between the initial article "A" and the following word "quick":

I think this may be a grammatical error for some of the dialogue with Himuihi.

 

When she reacts to the player character being an Island Aumaua: “Hmph. As more outsiders pile in, sons the daughters of the tribes begin to look out”.

The mouseover for streetwise has an extra formatting thing over the word survival. I'm guessing it's supposed to be a mouseover link, but it doesn't work within a mouseover.

I spotted that one last night and was gonna post about it, heh.

 

It's also an interesting take on the wheel and Ourobouros.

The first NPC you meet, Vektor, is described as a dwarf, but he doesn't look like a dwarf, he's actually slightly taller than the elven merc next to him.

 

Screenshot of text error: https://steamuserima...A3A5A3CD78180D/

 

Then again, an overheard conversation with other NPCs seems to indicate he's supposed to be a dwarf? Maybe I'll post a fuller bug report.

"Unsually" should be "Unusually"

"A" should be "An"

In the following racial trait description, the word "history" is hyperlinked even though it clearly does not refer to the in-game mechanic:

Likewise the word "food" in this conversation:

Not sure whether this can be helped, but I figured I'd point it out.

 

 

"+125%" is inaccurate; It's either "125%" or "+25%"

The text is correct, but the last part of the "s" is missing.

We need a bigger book ;)
