The Market Centre
N-The Market Squa E-The Market Squa S-The Market Squa W-The Market Squa
Bustling with activity, the market square teems with both stall holders and
shoppers. All manner of goods can be bought here, from fruits to fabrics. The
scent of herbs and spices fills the air, which is punctuated from time to time
with the cry of a hawker. To the west the spires of the Font of Knowledge can
be seen stretching towards the sky. A beautiful mermaid fountain takes pride
of place in the centre, around which people often seem to congregate.
The sky is hot and rainy and a hot southerly gust blows.
A phoenix fountain splashes merrily here. (perfect)
A Constable stands here arrayed in Waterdhavian livery.


The description should probably be changed to reflect the newer fountain.
Wir stolze Menschenkinder
Sind eitel arme Sünder
Und wissen gar nicht viel,
Wir spinnen Luftgespinste
Und suchen viele Künste
Und kommen weiter von dem Ziel.

Roadhouse at the Crossroads
S-Yard outside thSW-Crossroads near {80
This tavern reeks of foul ale and burnt cooking. Sturdy wooden tables with
sturdy chairs litter the place. The ceiling sags in low, tin lanterns hung
from the rafters. There are drunks passed out on the floor before a roaring
stone hearth at the back of the dilapidated roadhouse.
A set of stools and tables have been set up here. (perfect)
A studded leather jerkin lies here. (usable)
A tavern keeper wipes out a glass.
A tavern keeper spits onto the floor behind the bar.


N-Roadhouse at th W-Crossroads near {80
A muddy patch of earth where the grass has been worn away by repeated
trampling by horses and travellers. It serves as the hitching camp off to the
side of the road.
The sky is warm and stormy and a warm southerly breeze blows.
A few hitching posts stand here. (perfect)

The 'archery gloves' being sold by Rynnd in the Temple of Lathander is slightly wrong. It mentions a two finger draw, where I was taught a three finger draw. I do like that it mentions the bracer on the other forearm.

exam gloves rynnd
The one glove straps around the wrist, and covers only the index
and middle fingers, protecting the fingers from the bite of the
bowstring. The other is a normal glove with a hardened
leather plate on the underside, running to mid-forearm, which
protects the arm from the snap of the bowstring.

One such glove from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Neet-Suede-Shoot ... B003BJU1U6

Different cultures/settings/races/etc use different techniques. Some even turn their wrist so the index is lowest finger while they shoot. Maybe Rynnd prefers two-finger shooting.

We can get really technical and point out that a bastard sword and longsword are basically the same thing (we're basically naming two general types of longsword along the Petersen and Oakeshott typologies), that "double-edged blades" thrust as often as they cut (indeed some are primarily intended to thrust), or that drawing a greatsword from one's back is not really practicable. Realism is elusive in gaming and, as Alitar points out, there are different approaches.

But I appreciate the pursuit of realism, and because there is a shortage of archery related content in the game, I would recommend putting your head together with a builder for some sort of archery themed content in the future. That way you can be certain that your ideas are represented for like minded others.

Massive as any warhorse, this stallion has a paling man of trimmed hair
and a muscle structure rivaling most of its kind, on the left side of his
rump is a bell shaped branding. He has a perfect set of teeth and fire in
his eyes.

a pale war stallion is in perfect health.

The statue of Talos in the Museum of Knowledge in Waterdeep is missing its description. If one looks at it the only text shown is "ABC", while all the other statues have their respective description.

This is one space southwest of the crossroads between Daggerford and Triel.

The Coast Way
N-Plains E-Plains S-Plains W-Plains
NE-Crossroads near {80NW-Plains SE-Plains SW-The Coast Way
The road is clear of grass and heavily rutted from the passage of many
wagons bearing their heavy loads. There are several potholes that you
must take care to avoid tripping in.
The sky is cloudless and warm and a warm southerly breeze blows.

Not sure if this counts as a Rainy Day fix.

Equip a stablehand with the token of their stable. So you can tell with a quick look whether they are the right stable.

Doing this elven god thing letting them tell me about their gods. Sehanine Moonbow has a typo. She has overtime come to befriend numerous other gods should probably be read as often times. Overtime = often times.

Aramil pointed out that it was probably meant to be over time instead of overtime. In which case it would be She has, over time, come to befriend numerous other gods....

Thank you.

I'm in the business of the Ivory Hands at Darromar and in descending some stairs I noticed it said costing shadows instead of casting shadows.

down
A steep wooden stair
S-The mouth of a U-A storage cella
This steep wooden stairwell descends into a rough-hewn passage, scant
torchlight illuminates the stairwell, costing shadows that seem to dance
and sway as you descend it to the underground caverns below.

Thank you,

Room Vnum = 56228

Trade Way
N-The High Moor E-The High Moor S-Plains W-Plains
NE-The High Moor NW-Crossroads near {80SE-Trade Way SW-Plains
This is one of the many roads that winds its way across the kingdoms.
It is mostly in good repair though you occasionally come across soft
spots in the road that could use some work.

Never seen that before.

It happens when the color code is cut by the character limit in the short exits. If you type "exits" you will see the room names normally. You can see the same thing in the inner rooms of the Haze, which are color code heavy.

Someone had dropped some earrings on the ground outside the Friendly Arm Inn. https://i.imgur.com/2gpVqY6.png

It should be earrings and NOT earings. Here is a link to one of the internet pages http://www.howtospell24.com/earrings.html

Not sure if this counts as Rainy Day or not but it is pretty unimportant.
Tailored outfit bought in Zhentil Keep

You realise that you are not proficient in using leather armour, and will be clumsy while wearing a deep silk cowl.
You wear a deep silk cowl about your waist.


It says silk...so why code as leather?
Also, aren't cowls for your head?

I've bought a lot of these sets in the past; it seems like something funky is going on there. I'd repost this to bug reports.

Super unimportant, but it seems the cattle in the Saiyaddar occasionally drop riding lizard scales.

Code: Select all
The Saiyaddar
 N-Darkness        E-Darkness        S-Darkness        W-Darkness       
NE-Darkness       NW-Darkness       SE-Darkness       SW-Darkness       
These high, rolling grasslands are home to many gazelle, onagers, and a few
lions that prey on them. Here and there in its depths, all the trees and
plants of plenty that can withstand a hot environment grow, and many springs
rise throughout the region, to keep its grass lush and tall.
The sky is warm and stormy and a cool northern breeze blows.
     The sliced-off left leg of some savannah cattle is lying here. (superb)
     The corpse of Some savannah cattle is buzzing with flies. (superb)

The golem guard outside of the School of Wonder has a typo in its description.

A magical golem guard stands here.
Constructed entirely of magic and magically enchanted materials this hulking
monstrosity stares ahead with eyes of magical fire. Etched carefully like a
badge in the center of his chest is the symbol of the school, a cresent of
gold stars on a blue field.
