So everyone can use this thread for Typos. Please be as precise as you can be when describing where you have spotted the error.
Effect Description of Bark Coat (the one that shows up if the protected is attacked) reads
Character 1 is protected by Character 2’s melee attacks by a bark coat (18).
The first “by” is wrong, it should be “from” (as it is, I think, in Stonecoat).
Something I’ve had come up a lot is “$actor protects Kalaznikov from fire by cooling and adapting their skin (44).” The “$actor” is what I’m pointing out. This is on more effects than just this one. I assume it’s because who cast it isn’t kept track of aftr it’s initially done.
While not a typo persay, I thought I’d point it out.
That should be coldskin… I’ll have a look to further pin down the location… (initial, effect in log, effect on character) but you’re right, I have seen that on a skill, too, not coldskin, but I don’t remember exactly which one it was. (I can just rule out coldskin)
Thanks for the notice, and frankly, thanks for using this thread. ;)
Edit: Okay, checked. It is, indeed, in Coldskin. The Popup and Log (when used) are fine, but the effect that attaches to the character (and is shown when that character is targeted) somehow doesn’t quite interpret that $actor correctly. This may be, because this is a lasting effect, used by someone else, but staying. Maybe it should be changed to a passive form, like “$Target’s skin is adapted and cooled, protecting it.” This leaves the caster out of the lasting effect.
Yes, as far as I know, that’s to avoid gender. I don’t know if we have an alternative yet, or if one is feasible (we do have gendered player-characters and can check for gender for mission text messages, but I don’t know if it is possible to use that in battle code)
creating your enemies…

o Chaduk Scavenger Llisefikl created!
o Chaduk Scavenger Swinacar created!
The third guy listed is spelled wrong. This battle was initiated on a different account of mine, during the escort mission through Chaduk Haven desert from Hopitan.
Yeah, there are one or two occasions where Chaduk is spelled Charduk, especially on that mission. Problem is: I don’t know if I can fix that typo without killing some peoples battles or crashing the server.
