    Teaser:

    Formed from smoothed, ebon-lustre olivine, the air of this antiquated staff bares its ancient legacy plainly with a web-work of ornate inscriptions coiling about its form, quicksilver gilding surging about the tiny channels. A flickering matrix of unstable light weaves and warps about its crown, occasionally shifting into shattered, chromatic fragments, each one whirling unpredictably as it attempts to reform, the meaning of their greater whole lost amidst the luminescent chaos.

    That last sentence is grammatically incorrect. Fix it, before @Trey gets on your case

    hint: it's a run-on sentence

    You're a run-on sentence.

    It's not a run-on; it's just long. Grammatically fine.

    In the first sentence, though, the dependent clause, "Formed from smoothed, ebon-lustre olivine," is not in agreement with the subject, "air."

    its def a run on

    A run-on is two (or more) independent clauses joined without appropriate punctuation or conjunction, this is a run-on.

    The sentence in the description only has one independent clause.

    It is technically grammatically correct. However, it is awkwardly long. It could do with being split and then a rephrase of the latter half to be grammatically correct, as well.

    Ship in a Bottle

    A clear glass bottle, stoppered with a cork and with a small tag attached to the neck bottle via golden thread. One side of the tag is blank, the other displays a short spell in flowing script which, once uttered along with a ship name (while at the harbour it's docked) will create an exact replica of the vessel within the bottle, sailing upon a salty sea.

    Random interactions such as turbulent seas, the occasional seamonster attack, etc that will show to you only if held in hand or show to room if let on the ground.

    Once per month you can reuse the spell to replace the ship currently stored.

    I don't mind that its run-on sentence just to annoy someone.. you know.. griefing those who are being that picky with the grammar stuff.

    Sure. But the charm of a text game is well-written text as much as anything else. You can be understanding of the varying levels of english that people who play here have and still appreciate it and make suggestions when you think things could be better. Its just a matter of how you do them.

    That's like saying Harry Potter can be written with the English grammar of a 10-year-old, since the intended readership goes that young anyway.

    It's more like saying exactly what I said. Don't strawman, makes yourself look stupid.

    Let's make it clear for those who struggle. That post was entirely Personal, relating only to me, and, indeed, meant nothing on how others felt or react. I don't, nor ever will care. It does not mean, however, that I think english teachers should lax on education because maybe they'll get some french student who struggles.

    You can talk however ya want. Any item in the game world, especially one as permanent as an artefact, should be improved upon wherever possible. It's not being a nazi and it's not something anyone should take personally. Just my two cents.

    Unrelated, despite the fact that permanent items and rooms are the typos that get fixed, the one-time world emotes with typos are the absolute worst ones because I'm triggered by the fact that that world emote will go down in history, unfixed, forever.
    Huh. Neat.

    Gauntlets of Gotcha:
    By using Gotcha <target> the target cannot move more than 1 room away from the adventurer that uses this until one of them perishes or the user uses DROPKICK <target> (requires the target be unmassed) to send the target to just beyond the thousandth door.

    Dude, you kicked him through the fourth wall.
