Yeah, that's better lol. I thought it still looked a bit odd, but i wasn't going to delve into sorting it out.

In the License, I'm just curious if this is correct

and also I'm curious why this is included?

Makes strange reading the license atm, varies from relatively serious to being almost random tangents.

That's Radu for you and the client builders haven't bothered looking at it

Btw- our Mesterul Manole in WS reads 'Hello, Ena. Would you like to contribute to GAIWS?' - should read GIWS
When you click who are you he reads 'My name is Mesterul Manole. I am to fund riser for GAIWS' - please just fix this sentence completely :P

Actually GAIWS is the more correct name, Global Advanced Invasion Warning System. GIWS comes from the original typo that dropped the A when it was first added, was corrected later on.

'I am to fund riser for GAIWS' would still be incorrect.

Not a 'typo' per se, but " While harvesting, (Name) upset a radon pouch, and was hit for NN points of radiation damage."
It's a pocket, not a pouch and you can't 'upset' it. It's not like there's bags of radon gas lying around and you knock one over. I'd suggest something like "While harvesting, (Name) hit a pocket of radon gas and was hit for NN points of radiation damage."

Many many more errors to come once I get a list made, but as a geologist, this bothers the crap out of me!

Day of No Grief
English: Less weapons and armors break today (in combat).
Role Playing: Today our planet is passing throughout an area in our universe where the electromagnetic law is slightly different, and this is causing the armors, weapons and clothes to break less often for the duration of this day, from normal combat.


Should be "fewer weapons and armors"

Joker will never have proper grammer ... the sentences is a single sentence with the name of the item substituted in the proper place

Figured a list of items gets substituted into his basic sentence, but the item name couldn't be listed as "a piece of leather?"

That fails when you have multiple items stacked inventory

Joker is officially exempted from the high level requirement for proper grammar. Normally, I would be loath to agree this, but special circumstances apply here.

You have my interim blessing as long as there are no obvious abuses. However Kyndor is still a goddess in my country.
