Default Typos

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)

E.G.: 'Too bad Ward (Weaponsmith) got killed by a .'

I believe how this should read is:

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

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.

The current wording just sounds wrong. Also, the "special gold vein" might better be referred to as the "specific gold vein".

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.

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?

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.

Default Demon Armor

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

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