At the Enclave, when Jaques, posing as Amaran guard, warns his "comrade" and we have a priest (I had Mericious) in the party: 'I think you should have listened to the priest' There is no dot at the end.

Here's an instance in which the font changes; I'm not sure if it's intentional but it also occurred earlier in this chapter.


Also, here's yet another font error in which some characters are changed into a rectangle. Since the rectangle appeared frequently as I went through the game, I originally assumed that there was only one kind of erroneous character.


On another note, are some monsters supposed to flash into the blue box? I noticed that after attacking an enemy, it turned into the box for probably less than a split second.

Thanks folks.

Novalon - I think the damage font is an issue with a font unavailable on some windows installs ( Arial Narrow )
I changed it after the first public test, but perhaps the change has not been applied correctly to these levels.

The recurring charset issues seem to be the abreviation of '...'
In that case it has not only added a rectangle but the letter 'E' :/ I'll update wherever they are found to be causing problems.

at longreach, when you get told the history of the fortress by Private Tolleridge :

"Longreach has stood as a symbol of Lereftese independance through centuries of war. No doubt SHE will stand through many such conflicts to come."

It's a fortress. It's supposed to be an IT.

But the private continue to use she after that.
Is he personificating the fortress?
I thought he found his job pretty dull and didn't love that much being in Longreach. I find it weird for him to personificate it.

Well, people often refer to ships as "she" so I don't think it's that odd to call a fortress a "she" as well.

Men tend to assign a gender ( usually female ) to many objects they are fond of - cars, boats as Nillo says, even countries.

At least that's in the English language. I'm not sure how it is in, say, French and German where objects get a gender by default, or indeed in any other languages.

I know about that, but I find it weird since the Private speaking doesn't seem particularly fond of the fortress, he learns history because of boredness more than fondness (or so I understand)

No, it looked to me like he was pretty proud of it. Just didn't like being stuck on guard duty in a place with too many guards.

I personally say "She's a fine gal" about most inanimate objects that have done good by me. Razz

Charlotte, in the governor's house, chapter 4

"I dare say I did society as big as favour as I did myself at that time."

shouldn't it be as big A favour?

Quest text. Charlotte. "Deer Diary" s/b "Dear Diary" . . . or am I missing something here? It seems all the quests are that way, so perhaps it was intentional, but I can't see why.

Charlotte's character is somewhat illiterate, her typos are typically intentional.
