There appears to be a typo in the description of the Spotted Teal drake. Surely "high-pitcher" is meant to be "high-pitched".

For the Sabertooth Bull Drakes, please change "Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon" to "Aww... It’s a cute baby drake."

 

These guys were made before the drake descriptions were updated, and I would like them to be corrected, please.

The unavailable for breed notice is surrounded by two pairs of brackets but the already influenced notice is only surrounded by one

 

I'll post a screenshot when I redact the codes

If you are at the limit for a breed of dragon, you will not be able to grab any eggs of that breed from the cave or abandoned page.

(from Breed Limits)

 

I know this refers to caveborn eggs, but without this prior knowledge it's a bit confusing — it looks like it refers to any and all eggs of a breed, including bred ones... not to mention that Guardian of Nature eggs and Leetle Trees cannot be abandoned in the first place.

Could a clarification / rewording be put up on the page by any chance?

Maybe my memory is bad, but it seems to me it's been that way for a very long time.  I thought it was a way to emphasize the holiday eggs that are only one gender and was intended.

 

Edit:

This is unexpected, I was replying to Chaos Rider's thread in Help about the brackets with single gender holiday eggs on the influence page.  Now that thread has been merged into this one and my post is totally out of context.  What is really surprising it there is no indication in Help of where the thread went, I had to view my own posting history to figure out what had happened. :wacko:

This isn't a typo per se, but the Cantormaris encyclopedia entry should be completed with information on the Tutela and Motus variants. :)

"Spells are the willful use of magic by sentient sapient creatures. This is how humans interact with magic: expressions of the caster’s will."

 

A weirdly common mistake.

Jester Dragon, Adult behavior, list item #2:

Quote

Jesters are, however, a fairly laid-back breed, and while they enjoy humorous wordplay and banter, their entertaining nature is mostly because of an inborn quirk of monement.

Typo in Lunar Heralds' encyclopedia entry

  • Iridsecent powder covering the wings flakes off easily when touched

Also I might just be picky, but I think the comma here should be a semicolon:

  • Migratory males seek out females displaying their illusory wings, she will often accept him if he displays his illusory wings in return

False-Headed Hydras are strictly carnivores. They cannot stomach vegitation.

Should be "vegetation".

Just went to influence an egg, got the not enough time message, decided to cross my fingers and precog it, all good so far. Except:

In the Encyclopedia description of Pargulus Pygmies;

 

A space is missing between these two clauses:

  • Coloration varies on location,often sharing colors with local fruits.

A period is missing at the end of this bullet:

  • Pargulus give gifts of their favorite foods to show affection

Common pygmy encyclopedia, 3rd bullet point of "Appearance/Basic Anatomy"

"Most are a bright orangy-yellow, though some individuals are either paler or darker than this—from almost white to a moderate umber."

Should be "orangey-yellow"

In the Blusang encyclopedia facts it spells Lindwyrm wrong and I’m pretty sure “Seawood” is not a thing and they mean seaweed.

I'm pretty sure someone noticed this before me, but in the creatures page of the encyclopedia, the names of the types of dragons are capitalized, except in the Lindwyrm paragraph. The word Lindwyrm and Wyvern are lowercase even though the word Lindwyrm is mention twice where it is not at the beginning of a sentence and is still capitalized.

The comma there should probably be turned into a semicolon in that case. Just aspire reads strangely to me.
