I just examined on a whim a Shaft of Mahogany, and there was a typo on it.
The Shaft is named correctly, but it's description says the following:
"This shaft is used in the making of iron weapons."
Mahogany Shafts are used in the making of adamantium melee weapons on Layo.

Note: Shaft of Mahogany is a different item than Short/Long Stave of Mahogany, which are used in the making of corresponding bows of mahogany.

Edit: Might be good to check the Shaft of Oak, Shaft of Hickory & Shaft of Yew as well for similar typos.

Noticed this as Görmungard, I'm not sure if it applies to other epic barbarian with the appropriate feat as well.

The ingame description of Terrifying Rage feat's duration in the character screen says 1d6 rounds, yet as stated before in Bug Reports it is actually 1d3 rounds.

LORE

LORE: Common and Unique Ships of Layonara

"Since people first decided to take that tentative and frightening step to travel across the ocean, they have been fascinated by its beauty and repelled its fickleness."

Should it read "repelled by its fickleness" ?

In the conversation with Astork on the Packagemaster Freya static quest, the player response is:

"Yes, I have this Package to be Delivered to Astork of Hlint."

I don't think there's any reason for Package and Delivered to warrant initial capital letters.

Bloody Gate, map pin: Shirne to Vorax


EDIT: some wag has suggested it would be worth spelling it "Shroine ta Vorax" in deference to the dwarves :rolleyes:

These should have been corrected in version 3.30, but if not, please post again.

The capitalization comes from the title of the quest item, which is then displayed as part of a dynamic conversation by the quest system.  As such, I will not be fixing this one.

Bydell Castle, Magic Mouth - Dragon Storm Timeline of Events conversation:

There are question marks in the entries where a non printable character has been copied from a word processor (presumably), and a typographical error in the name of one of the heroes of Layonara:

  • 1432 : Y?ogoldrania ...
  • Feb, 1433: Orn?s Tear ...
  • Junar 21, 1441: ... Sasha Tomyris, G'rok, Steel ... retrieve Orn?s Tear ... in Fisterion?s hands ... in Shadrixkayl?s
  • Junar 21, 1446: ... investigating Storan?s and ...
  • Novlar 1, 1446: ... underneath Storan?s. They ...
  • Seplar 24, 1446: ... to Ulgrid?s. Involved ...
Also, for ease of access, it would be nice if:

  • entries were sorted by date
  • the date format used was standardised
  • rather than using a "next set/previous set of entries", the entries were clustered by date in a tree hierarchy.


Hope this helps.

Yeah, translation problem between spreadsheet and database.  These have been corrected.

Entries are now listed and grouped under the year, so at least in that, they're in order. For the moment, that's as good as it's going to get, because the system is made for general information distribution rather than showing any real organization, other than an alphabetic arrangement of topics.  Maybe down the line, but we'll see.  

Hopefully grouping the timeline entries by year will help. Incidentally, this is something I had meant to do before import, but it slipped my mind.  Thanks for the reminder!

There most likely won't be a hierarchy, however, but we'll see.

I made some Sandpapers today, and they are labeled as Sandpaper Made From MahogOny, the correct term being mahogAny.

Not a typo for say, but not sure where to place it.

The statue in front of the Toran temple in Llast, would need an updating to reflect the current lore on Toran.

The white dragon statue in Fort Vehl's Temple of Rofirein's exterior (docks); displays "NWN" in the Domains portion of the description, should probably be "Laonara"?

Actually several points of that information were incorrect, so I fixed them.

Also, there's a special irony in someone submitting a report of a typo that contains a typo in the suggested fix. ;)

The you-know-what flag in Vale has the old naming of the forest on it (Forest of Mists) should be Fog (or vice versa...).
Vale - Central server (the area east of Vale, the place with the magic hall and the nature merchant of potions & such)

Ahoy ahoy, time to resurrect this grand ol' thread :)

Paper sheets on the floor in Emerald Skull's Tomb on Central.
- Several typos in the examinable text on the papers, terms like: Rofiren and some other minor misspellings.
