Please make that 'Contemplate AAoRA'; would make for another badge I can actually earn :)

Lol! Me too... If only it were that easy. I contemplate a lot of things. I could be the next 2Dev if all these "complete" typos were fixed so they read "contemplate".

Found these in config.lua. Words that need correcting are bolded for emphasis.

Quote
-- Specifies wether items in inventory and equipment should be colored

Quote
-- Sets wether message coloring will be enabled. Needs [messages] section.

"wether" should be "whether"

Quote
-- Menu styles can be LETTER for letter choince only menus, CHOICE for only arrow
-- selection or HYBRID for both. Note that additional commands (like BACKSPACE for
-- in-menu drop and TAB for swap) wont work in the LETTER mode.

1. "choince" should be "choice"?
2. "wont" should be "won't"

Quote
-- Setting to false will prevent DoomRL from waiting for confirmation
-- when too many messages are printed in a turn. Usefull for Speedrunning.

"Usefull" should be "Useful"

Quote
-- This is the global internet connection switch, allowing DoomRL
-- to use internet connection features. Think twice before disabling
-- it, or you'll loose the features listed below and MOTD and ModServer
-- support!

"loose" should be "lose"

Quote
-- DoomRL by default uses it's own mod server, where we host only screened
-- mods from the DoomRL community. A day may come when there will be an
-- unofficial server, for example for mods in testing. You can specify it
-- here. Note that this overrides the default server.

"it's" should be "its"

Lua comments were out of purview -- I might need to polish those more than the polish that they are getting.

But those are lower priority since you only need to poke at them once or twice, as opposed to the exposed UI in-game.

I figured as much.
I only noticed them because I was dinking around with the config.lua and noticed a few things that could use sprucing up.

Regarding the "you feel like you're being targeted" level feeling, where enemies periodically teleport near you, with a message something like "Suddenly, [name of enemy] appears near you!" or something.

There should an "a" before [name of enemy], so that it appears "Suddenly, a [name of enemy] appears near you!".
...Oh, but then there are enemies with names that start with a vowel, like imps and agony elementals (o.o), what do

Found a Shielded Armor for the first time. Description reads:

"While it is massive, you no longer fear the little ones."

While should be replaced by since or something along those lines.

Danke.  I've rephrased it a little.

Danke.

Funny choice of words: I actually had to look up 'while' in the dictionary to be sure of myself, since the German 'weil' would mean exactly the right thing :)

A couple of old ones that have been there for a while:

In the mortem, it says "sacrificed itself for the good of mankind."  It should be "themselves" or maybe "himself" if there is just one person.

Also, "showed that it can outsmart Hell itself."  It should be "showed that they can outsmart Hell itself."  (or "he" in the place of "they" if it's just one person)

In conclusion, you don't call people "it."  :)

Sure.  But we're talking about souls, not people.  Souls ain't people.
