The link to Blaz's DA page on the bottom Mermaids article is broken; it has one more slash at the end than it needs.

Cult of Minalca


Since Malahite just brought it up I went to read on it and noticed some typos on the entirety of the page. This one was pretty outright though, since its a hyperlink and therefore colored:

The Cult of Minalca is known to have good relations with Tombhumbs, whose sight is often considered as a good luck sign among humans. Members of the cult are encouraged to help these little beings whenever needed. The cult is based in the Sanctum of the Shining Star in Negav.

There is many plots, counter plots and manoeuvres taking place behind the stage though

From Negav's factions entry. It should be, "There are many plots, counter plots, and maneuvers taking place behind the stage though


the Magiocrats personal fighting force.

In the Isolon Fist's entry, "the" should be capitalized.


The Negav Police has inconsistent acronyms. One time it's MSD, then it's IMSD (which should be the complete acronym), then ISD. Also... was ordered to dispand by the Magiocrats

It should be "disband"


are just an extension of the local criminal gangs an mafias

Citizen Militia: It should be "gangs and mafias"


For the richs

With the current lack of a city wide police force dedicated to dealing with common and local crime it is not uncommon to find the more affluent neignbourhoods pratrolled by these private security personnel.

Private Security and Mercenary Groups: I'm not an expert, but I think it's "For the rich"

There should be a comma between "local crime" and "it is not uncommon."

Also, it should be "neighborhoods"

Just a note on the Internal Security Division and the Metropolitan Security Division. The MSD was under the command of the ISD which is part of the Investigators. The MSD was dispanded and reorganised into the Negav police while the ISD is still around.

When I see "ISD" the first think I think about is star wars. (Imperial Star Destroyers)

I don't have a problem with Internal Security Division, but I'm a little hesitant to use a name that will reflect upon such a big sci-fi name.

Quote :
The cause of the fire remains uncertain but some say it was the result of a power struggle between the two centers.

very unlikely. then Kensha Hussars set up a subsidiary bureau there. The best probable cause would be that mercenaries that were down on their luck got hired by some employers who really hated them.

which is why i previously stated it was a conflict between other mercs.

The Wiki | Negav Districts wrote:
Though many elves won't admit it outright, the city of Negav, with its formidable defense, is often much safer than their smaller settlements. However, elves, with their tight-knight communities, are uncomfortable living so close to other races, and the stylings of Negav are distasteful to many.

tight-knit.

Not sure if this is intentional, but I noticed that Goro and Teron are under 'Other' on the Character Navigation box. Treants are filed under Elementals, so wouldn't the Nav reflect that? ^^;

In the Negavian factions section:
There are many plots, counter plots and maneuvers taking place behind the stage though, among the many actors and political forces of that huge, dangerous city.

-I think that should be "factors"

In the Negav section, under Negav's Higher Tier:
This is where the Magiocrats and Vishmitals have their headquarters and hold consul.

-I think that should be counsel? consul is a government official XD

No, "actors" works here; its a slightly less formal way to say "There are many plots, counter plots, and maneuvers taking place behind the stage though, among the political actors and political forces of that huge, dangerous city."

It would probably be best to rewrite the entire sentence though; any suggestions?

Maybe using the phrase "acts of deceit?" That might be a better way of putting "actors".

Yeah I guess you're right about 'actor' working, though it throws me off a bit.

PostSubject: Swiftlit Height Complication   Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:21 pm

In the rather newly written article on the character Swiftlit ( Here ) it's written that he's 5' 20''. I thought it was a rather cute little typo ^^; 12 inches is a foot, so what's written here would be 6' 8'', which is VERY large for any boy of 14, even if he's American/European.

I believe it's either supposed to be 5' 2'', or maybe the 20'' is supposed to be transcribed as centimeters? Either way, the current written height needs to be changed.

I hope I was helpful =)
