There's an alternate fire called "whisper of" and the rest is chopped off. Probably want to rewrite it to fit (or allow second-line wrapping).

In the mortem, if you find the mod cache, it says "destroyed the evil withing".  It should probably be "within", or maybe "thing" if you want.

Not that much of a typo, but I guess we all already know that Revs fire seeker missiles and not fireballs.

That one's lifted directly from Doom 2 though, so I think it should be left as it is.

On trying to reload a weapon that has a Nano mod:
"The weapon cannot be manualy reloaded"
should be "manually"

"Now this is a wierd weapon."

The bolded bit should be weird.

I believe "fireball" is only from ZDoom's obituaries. (Which the original Doom did not have.) The manual says missiles.

Upon entering The Mortuary it says: "Can this be real?? The floor is is covered by blood..."

Moreover, I think it should be "covered with blood".

Hell Staff ingame description: "Now this is a interesting piece of equipment..." It should be not "a" but "an". At least thus is written here: http://doom.chaosforge.org/wiki/index.php?title=Hell_Staff

"Covered in blood" would be even better.

Bullet Dance:

Righteousness -- and superior firepower -- has triumphed!"

Missing the first quotation mark.

Rocket Box:

"Now this is REAL 'boombox'!"

should be

"Now this is a REAL 'boombox'!"

10mm Ammo Chain:

"That reminds you about action films you've seen long ago."

might be better as

"This reminds you of an action film you saw a long time ago."

It says "You have no armor that needs repairing".  It should be "Your equipped armor does not need repairing". 

I do have armor that needs repairing.  It's just not equipped :)  So technically the first statement is incorrect.

Just completed 0.9.9.4. In post mortem it's written: "1 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon..." It should be: "1 soul destroyed the Cyberdemon..."
