Acerdaen says to Gaelin 'I am trapped here in this crypt unless'
Acerdaen says to Gaelin 'someone retrieves for me the wardstone'
Acerdaen says to Gaelin 'that was captured by the vile drow that'
Acerdaen says to Gaelin 'have overrun it. Will you find it, and'
Acerdaen asks Gaelin 'return it to me, that I may save my home?'
Acerdaen says 'You have retrieved the ward stone for me, I hope.'
Acerdaen looks at you expectantly

103682 - Dining Hall
The exit out of the tavern leads you out onto a large platform with long
tables. The tables are a short distance off of the ground with soft bales to
sit on. Patrons sit along the tables communally, like one large family, while
the hostess moves between the tables serving them what they wish to eat.
Steaming bowls of soup and large plates of fruit are on the tables here and
there in front of happy diners. Some of which look native to the Forest,
while others look as if they are elven travellers from other cities beyond.

-> diners, some
-> elven travelers

Is Luskan close enough to Icewind for Tempus to be called Tempos?

I have always wondered about Sandrew the Wise...

Is he really supposed to be evil? Because he will be, occasionally.

Everyone had bad days. I believe this simple mobile is just randomized by class_oghma.
A goblin, a trickster, a warrior? A nameless terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. A most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop, hold, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

Earwen: this mob seems buggy. She sleeps at home all the time. If one wakes her however, she goes to the Dining Hall. It is a pity that the mob, due to her permanente sleeping routine is normally not seen in action.

Lebellan: he seems to have a problem in the colour code at the beginning of his description.

Spiraling tree platform, near the guard post:

An orcish sergeant eyes you.
An orcish sergeant exclaims to you 'You no interfere. We take over Shilmasta!'
An orcish sergeant says to you 'You no live no more.'
An orcish sergeant approaches you and prepares to engage you in combat!

Hold up there, buddy. This is Rawlinswood now.

Rawlinswood/Shilmista forest is the low-level leveling area for orcs. The old camp was destroyed, so the leveling area was moved along with the new camp.

Partridge in Ardeep
A partridge flys through the trees.
Flies.

The ranger of Corellon in Everdusk Hall in Silverymoon does not sell the boots of the outfit with the crescent moon studs.

The tanner Shindala in Tangled Trees seem to go out of her spell pouches pretty quickly.

There is also the leather merchant in Menzoberranzan who goes always out of scabbard, the rothe hide scabbard, so that all the new drow go around without scabbards until level 10.

Tha dwarven workers in Settlestone, and if I recall correctly also in Mithril Hall, have the description of some warrior mob of the Halls, with mithril armour and anatomical parts of enemies, instead of an appropriate description for them.

Jackal:
It looks like a dog, with short hair and enormous ears. It's fur
is the color of the desert sand.
Its.

Cave of colours:
The camp jeweler shakes her head, pressing her fingertips together, 'Sory. I'm saving my spells to help out my tribesmen.'.
Sorry.

Join quest:
Josah, the camp leader says to XXX 'bring back its crystal, nn. Well luck to you.'
The nn's meaning is not clear.

Yuirwood, Along a Winding Trail on the Rim of the Valley
Sapplings line the trail.
Saplings

Valley in the Yuirwood:
A Valley in the Yuirwood
N-A Valley in the E-A Valley in the S-A Trading Tent W-A Trading Tent
You move through the trees of the Yuirwood. Maple and beech now make
their appearance among the oak and yew, the trees very old and very tall here. Moss covers the ground in a rich carpet of green and small, bright flowers peek
through the dark green. The sounds of bird singing and the muted sound of voices
drifts through the air. The valley continues in all directions.
The trees are very old. Also the sentence immediately after does not sound complete, a carpet of green and small what?

Female villager in Yuirwood: has a colour issue with the first line of her description.

The top of the landing:
To the east is a small barracks of sorts, where militia rest while on
duty to protect the village hall.
West. :P

Entrance to Bezantur:
gate
The Northern Gate
N-Bezantur S-The High Road W-The Bezantine T W-Pair of red oak doors
It is strange that there are two western exits. Perhaps it was an eastern exit which got bugged?

Silverymoon street rat.
Whiskers quivering with every movement, this rat's fur is a silken
coat of brown. Beady black eyes dart around surroundings with a
*preditory instinct, though the position of the naked tail curled
behind the body of the rat suggests more prey than *preditor.

*predatory - predator

Waterdeep Selune temple ground floor.
Chapel of the Waxing Moon
S-Main Gallery in W-Choraula
This chapel which is set just off the right side of the Main Gallery
is a mostly bare room.It has a few benches set around the wall. In the center of the floor is a large hand woven carpet. It is made of various shades of dyed wool and hemp. It portrays Selune walking through a night forest, a clear sky over head with moon and stars shining. Walking
with *her, her hand on its head, is a silver-grey wolf.
(Magical) (Glowing) A glowing silver crescent moon levitates here in the chapel. (perfect)
A temple priestess is praying here.

Today we are
in the Orc Camp!

Enslaved tiny elf in the Pits:
She looks like she has been beaten into submission. She has been
brought in for your to train your new found fighting skills on.
You.

Enslaved gnome in the Pits:
His body is riddled with scars. This one has been in captivity for a
long time. Though with the way the Zhents love to torture it might
not be as long as it seems.
Orcs. We are in the Orc Сamp here. :P

Just out of the tutorial a typo on Yogg:
with prominent lower
canines that resemble a boars tusks.
Boar's, with the apostrophe.

Not really a typo yet:
You learn from your success and improve at common!
An orc guard says 'I fqn'r trbfe xith golks I cbn't ude.'
Seems like several orc mobs reply in common if one tries to train when hidden and they don't see them.

The barracks:
On the northern end of the barracks is a
small shrine to the Orcish deity Baghtru
Bahgtru

Slab: he has common, or something else, set as his language.

The mess hall:
The smell
stale, cheap liquor pervades the air.
The smell of stale, cheap liquor...

Noxtalthos:
He had a
strong brow which knits together in the center and protrudes.
Has.

The War Boss's tent:
A crude rugged bed sits against the wall. (perfect)
The bed should be moved in the room to the west, where it is mentioned in the description. Also, perhaps the room name should be "the War Boss' tent".

Thulgar:
He has A nail piercing on his
left pectoral muscle placed, just over a gruesome tattoo of an elf with a
*spike* through its heart. In every aspect this This fiendish half-breed
looks rugged and dangerous.
Those capitals should be made normal.

An intersection of pathways (slightly to the north):
Chief Brassskull's tent is nearby, by as well as
the blacksmith's stall.
Brasskul with only two s's, and the by after the comma is not necessary.

Westgate noob temple, rogue room:
The shadows loom thick in this
room, dancing and flickering with ever breath of air that flutters
through.
Every.

The rogue himself:
A rather rotund halfling grins at you wickedly and tells you that the best
food can be found in Silverymoon.
Westgate.

Tangled Trees noob training area, clearing where there is the ranger:
The path to the west opens to this small clearing
East, it is the path to the east that leads to the ranger. The first line seems copied from the rogue room, which is in fact to the west of the path.

Ranger sign:
In order to find out what warrior skills the rangers can train you in type
'train'. The fighter will tell you his list.
Ranger.

Wizard sign:
In order to find out what spells wizard can train you in type 'train'.
The wizard will tell you he can train you in.
The wizard.

At the entrance of Rat Hill:
Aldo the Dung Sweeper nods at the sprawling mountain of trash.
Aldo the Dung Sweeper says to you 'We all know better then to go too deep into Rat Hill, dangerous things lurk inside.'
Aldo the Dung Sweeper asks you 'You have the means to go much deeper then we, will you find out what has happened?'
Than.

Again Rat Hill:
Auntie Glimbell smile brightly at you, revealing a row of rotting teeth.
Smiles.

Glass of cranberry wine:
This is a generously large wineglass, made of lead crystal
and beautifully thing with long, slender stems. The glass
contains a red, tart wine of cranberries.
Thin.

Again Auntie Glimbell's quest in Rat Hill:
Auntie Glimbell rummages in the mountain of things one her back.
Auntie Glimbell says to you 'Now see these buckles. I go them off some old armor someone threw out. The armor was rubbish, have no doubt. But not these buckles.'
On. Got.

Sewers of Westgate, long tunnel:
Long Tunnel
N-Sewer Ladder S-Long Tunnel
The tunnels snake through the sewers taking sudden turns. Here it
the floor becomes grating suspended over the stone of the floor
beneath,
That "it" is not necessary.

Sewers of Westgate, a bend in the tunnel:
The water laps up now to the bottom of the grating,
dampening the bottom of footwear and carrying its own unique
fragarence.
Fragrance.

Queenspire:
A diminutive, unremarkable young woman says 'How handsome you are, your survival has been truly blessdd.'
A diminutive, unremarkable young woman leans forward to get a better look at you.
Considering it has been said to a charisma 8 goblin, this lass either needs severe prescription glasses, she is trying to make up for a lack of Umberlants with questionable cheaty means, or there is some kind of bug in there.

Quest of the Plinth, where one learns about the faiths from the priest of Ilmater:
A priest of Ilmater extends another finger...
A priest of Ilmater says to you 'A deity cannot requite tribute from those outside of its faith.'
Require.

A fountain shaped like an Hourglass.

This fountain is shaped like a huge hourglass with no top. It is filled like a
glass nearly to the top, with calm unmoving water. You see your reflection in
its surface. You blink as you stare into the deep water because for a few
seconds you could have sworn you *where* aging before your eyes.

*were
Helm keep thee.
