Did you walk through the typo log? I'm almost certain I have reported a lot of them with that command.

Almost every room in DK has at least one typo and/or grammatical error, along with most of the mobs and item long descriptions. *stare* *flee*

Also, I believe I saw a few in Mir Forest, too.

I'd be willing to proofread em all for you, Shev.

I know last time I was in Darkhold, I was thankful for brief, otherwise the rampant typos would have made my head explode. Next time I'm there I'll make a point to record them, but if I recall correctly many many rooms had typos or bad grammar.

Shallow Bog
The forest here has given way to the formation of a natural bog, who's
surface is covered with a thick carpet of moss and fungus. The bog has
grown thick enough to allow travel across it safely by human sized beings,
and many tracks can be seen in the muddy surface. The smells of fungus
sit heavily upon the air here, mixing in with the pine of the surrounding
evergreens. The bog continues to the north and west.

And a torturer ready to torture... redundant much?

I did an Internet search on both spellings, remorahz and rhemoraz, to see what I could come up with. It seems that they are both used throughout AD&D related literature. Authors evidently spelled them differently over the years. Much the same as various renditions of god names i.e. Vhaerun/Vhaeraun have been.

Welcome to TorilMUD


Outside the Eastern Gates of Waterdeep
Two huge ironbound gates mark the eastern entrance to Waterdeep here,
standing twenty feet high, and surrounded by two fifty foot stone towers.
The city seems quite well protected behind this great display of defensive
might, with arrow slits and defensive measures lining the towers. The city
walls extend to the north and south for quite a distance, showing just how
big this city really is. A dirt road leads away to the east across a grassy
plain, out of sight.

Yeah, I knew that. However, I just thought perhaps a "uniform" spelling would work best for those players who aren't "hip to the table-top", so to speak. Should've clarified that in my original post, I guess.

A Dark Crevice in the Cliffside
This thin crack into the cliffside is hardly wide enough for a human to
squeeze through. The cave widens dramatically towards the west, creating a
small tunnel leading into the dark rock. Not much daylight from outside the
opening can seep through the rough bushes that cover the entrance. There seems
to be some sort of moor to the east. &c9

In menzo:

This priestess is clad in the formal garb of a worshipper of Lloth. She has
long white hair reaching almost to the end of her back and piercing red eyes.
She carries a three-headed whip of fangs that has been bestowed upon her for
her services to her godess.
a priestess of Lloth is in excellent condition.

godess should be goddess

The body of this spider is about the size of the fist of a drow male. It has
eight long hairy legs, which each are about a feet long. It is covered with
thick hair, mostly in black, but with some purple bands.
a large hairy spider is in excellent condition.

feet should be foot

"It is covered with thick hair, mostly in black, but with some purple bands" should be "It is covered with thick hair, mostly in black, but some with purple bands"?

Tolkar's Copper Door
As with the other massage houses in Menzoberranzan, this establishment is
lit only by soft amber glow-orbs and the air is filled with the drifting smoke
from burning incense. Padded massage tables around the room look a little
worse for wear and the sheer curtains seperating the work areas are dingy and
worn. Vials of perfumes and scented oils can be seen on nearby shelves,
arranged neatly so that clients might choose the scents that they find most
pleasant. A tall podium near the door appears to serve as a desk, its surface
clear of all but an open ledger listing clients aliases and their preferences
in masseurs.
Exits: - West

seperating should be separating

This is a huge fat and bloated spider. It is white and pale, with thin legs
protruding from its obese body. It seems to move slowly, as if it carries
something it is not used to do.
a bloated spider is in excellent condition.

"as if it carries something it is not used to do." should be "as if it carries

The Quarters of Matron Mother Hinkutes'nat Alar
These are the most luxurious chambers in the compound and matron mother
Hinkutes'nat Alar makes no secret of her wealth or her station as a matron.
The quarters consists of many rooms but the most magnificent is her audience
chamber where she attend visitors and hold her family meetings. She has placed
her thronelike chair on a low dais as to further show her station. A large
oval table stands in the center of the room but there are only three chairs
around it as the only ones allowed to sit in her presence are her priestess
daughters.
Exits: - North

"where she attend visitors and hold her family meetings." should be "where she attends visitors and holds her family meetings."

This drow female carried herself with the extravagant arrogance that is almost
a basic requirement of a matron of a drow house. She is wearing a magnificent
dress of soft black silk, and wears a beautiful silver chain on her head.
Several fist-sized spiders crawl around her forearms, forming bracelets
constantly in motion.
Hinkutes'nat Alar is in excellent condition.

"This drow female carried herself with" should be "This drow female carries herself with"

This drow priestess is of a lesser branch of the house, but have been
well-trained to become a devout priestess of Lloth and an absolutely loyal
servant of the Matron. She wears a simpe black robe, with the intricate symbol
of House Shobalar on its back.
a House Shobalar priestess is in excellent condition.

"but have been well-trained" - have should be has

simpe should be simple

---

The Chambers of Pu'nel, the Firstboy of House Shobalar
These are the chambers of the firstboy of house Shobalar. Pu'nel is also
the weaponmaster of the house and it is therefore his duty to train the elite
soldiers who in turn trains the soldiers. The chambers of the firstboy are
large compared to most drow males quarters but he is the only son and as a
weaponmaster he is a valuable asset to his matron. The largest room in his
chambers are a training hall which has wooden dolls for practising strokes as
well as numerous weaponracks and armorracks. Pu'nel has a wide range of
weapons on display ranging from the simplest dagger to some weapons that looks
like a madman had invented them. The floor has a red tinge to it as if not all
the blood that has been spilled here over the centuries has been cleaned away
immediately.

to be made out of adamantium and steel, and have several weapons attached to
his belts.
Pu'nel is in excellent condition.

"and have several weapons attached to his belts. " should be "and has several weapons attached to his belts. "

Chambers of the Shobalar House Wizards
These chambers consists of several rooms. Some are the sleeping quarters of
House Shobalar's female wizards and others seems to be laboratories where the
mages desperatley tries to research new and powerful spells to give them an
edge in the constant struggle that is life in Menzoberranzan. Scrolls, potions
and various spell components are neatly placed on shelves and in boxes and all
seem to be labelled with name and use.
Exits: - West

some obvious grammatical errors in this one.

---

On a Balcony Overlooking the Shobalar Compound
This balcony runs the length of the northern side of the nobles tower. It
gives a great view of almost the entire compound of house Shobalar as well a a
magnificent view over a large part of the city with its faerie fire lit
buildings. The most amazing view is without a doubt Narbondel which can be
seen very clearly from this vantage point.

nobles should be noble's or nobles'

This orc have been captures by drow slavers, and been forced to serve as a
soldier in the service of House Shobalar. He only wields a rusty shortsword,
and wears a padded armor of wool, with the house insignia upon. Obviously his
only duty is to tie up opponent soldiers for as long as possible before he
dies.
an orcish slave soldier is in excellent condition.

"This orc have been captures by drow slavers" should be "This orc has been captured by drow slavers"

This is a rather thin drow female, who does not seem to be in the greatest

A very tall, very narrow stalagmite has been hollowed out to form a home and
shop here. The walls are pierced with filigreed windows high above in the
pinnacle of the roofline, the light coming through the stained glass panes dim
and colorful. Around the perimeter of the room is a section of raised stone
which supports seperate living quarters for the owners of the shop. Heavy
fabrics have been hung to provide a measure of privacy in the living quarters
and the shop has been crammed with cases holding jars of exquisite perfume and
tables of equipment. Elaborate contraptions of glass and copper pipes run in
loops and swirls across the top of one table, ending in a bulbous glass jar
from which comes the scent of fresh air and sunshine.

Before House Faen-Tlabbar
Pressing hard against the southern wall of the city cavern, this large
walled compound consists of many stalactites and stalagmites linked to form an
impressive fortress. Shrieker mushrooms stand outside the tall fence, crying
out if anyone or anything ventures too close to their positions. Guards have
been posted here, their stoic posture belying the vigor with which they will
defend their house. The faerie fires which adorn the structures within the
compound cast and eerie amber glow on the path here, lighting the way along
polished black cobbles.

"cast and eerie amber glow" should be "cast an eerie amber glow"

The House of the Ryrrl Family
The Ryrrl family are struggling gemstone traders. Their house isn't as
strong as some of the others in the district, yet they manage to survive by
skillfully undercutting the market. Their shop isn't as well guarded and is
relatively small in comparison. The chaos caused by the continual banter for a
better deal keeps the family ahead of the competition. They are always looking
for ways to increase their commissions and cut costs. The shop isn't is
complete disarray, but boxes of unpacked shipments line the back wall. The
display cases are more utilitarian and functional than elaborate and secure.
The shop is simple in design, although it does provide protection from small
raids on the family house.

should be "isn't in complete disarray"

This female drow is clearly a spellcaste of a certain pedigree. However, she

The ocean stretches off in all directions as far as the eye can see.
The sound of sea birds can be heard off in the distance. Waves lap at

at this distance from the shore line is quite shallow, meeting the beach
directly east from here. What looks like a dessert stretches eastward

A wretched goblin slowly scuffles along the wall.

You do not see that here.

< 27h/27H 124v/124V P: std > l wretched
This disgusting goblin shows a life as a target of abuse. He seems to jerk
away from any threat whether real or imaginary. As he walks, he stays to the
edge of everything hoping to not be noticed. Looking closer, past your pity
for his miserable station in life, you can see that his eyes glow with hatred
and a consuming hunger to exact revenge.
a pitiful goblin named Barf is in excellent condition.

a golden chalice covered with rubies

< 207h/207H 234p/234P 127v/160V >
< P: std > exa chalice
Forged in the simple designs of the dwarven artisans to the north, this
chalice is covered with many small emeralds. The inside of the cup is
incredibly smooth and as you peer into the depths, the bottom seems to be
far deeper than is obvious from the outside.


---
Ansi is all red, so I presume rubies is correct. Also, it only holds a couple drinks... the depths certainly are not far deeper than is obvious.

A Grove of Evergreens
A spring bubbles forth form the ground in the midst of a grove of evergreen
trees. This spring flows out the the grove in a stream that makes a wide
arc to the west. The tracks of many forest creatures can be seen in the area
making it a popular watering hole. The evergreens grow thicker to the east
making travel in that direction nearly impossible.

This is just off the Trade Way.

A Staggering Staircase
A ten foot large landing divides a wide wooden staircase that conducts to
the second floor and to the undergrounds of the farm. The staircase is
partially collapsed and doesn't seem safe, the absence of many steps prevents
the passage to more than one person. From under the collapsed steps the
squeaking of the rats is particularly annoying.

-----

This sort of jumps out at me.. I think it probably should be staggered? It sounds like the staircase is actively "staggering" around the way it is now.

A half-elven minstrel clambers to his feet.

Pardon the bbs colorcode dumbness, but as you can see, there needs to be an ANSI normalizer for this shapechange shortname. :)

At the paladin guildmaster (at least in Waterdeep), when you already have maxed a skill for your level, and try to practice it:

The grand paladin tells you, 'You are already fully skilled in that ability, brethren!'


'brethren' is a plural word, 'brother' is the correct term, here.

A Large Restaurant
Dozens of large tables fill this fine restaurant, which is decorated
with plants and assorted artwork. Music is piped in from somewhere, and
the aroma of inscents sits heavily upon the air. This would seem to be
one of Waterdeep's finer restaurants, as the accommodations seem excellent
and the food smells wonderful. The huge bazaar is outside the restaurant,
to the north.

an ancient letter


The letter reads:

He was the last of his kind, the most noble and most proud,

A king of kings for the barbarian tribesman.

So well did he lead them, so <b>couragous</b> was his heart,

That the gods forged a weapon, and called it by his name.

And to the bitter end he fought, through blood and great pain,

Finally falling in death, to be forever <b>remembred</b> in legend.

Seek his name on the plains, the ancient homeland,

For the mighty barbarian tribes...

In beloved Hulburg:

Passers-by give a noble and his entourage a wide berth, indiciting his status.

Ok, not really a typo, but it's just freaking wrong man.

< P: std > The River Shining (Water)
Here in the flood plains of the Delimbiyr River, the river itself cuts
through on its tiresome path from as far north as the Nether Mountains to the
Lizard Marsh where it spills out into the Trackless Sea. On the northern side
of the river's ford the small walled community of Daggerford rests somewhat
comfortably upon the banks.

As long as we live in this world we are bound to encounter problems. If, at such times, we lose hope and become discouraged, we diminish our ability to face difficulties. If, on the other hand, we remember that it is not just ourselves but everyone who has to undergo suffering, this more realistic perspective will increase our determination and capacity to overcome troubles.
