    The building that converts the honeycomb (raw material) to honey (resource) is called a "Beekeeper". The correct term, for the building rather than the person/staffer, is an "Apiary".

    I'll chat with them about that and others. The research is referred to as Apiary, which should probably be flipped around... research being Beekeeping, and the building itself being called an Apiary. No anticipated timeline for this one to be resolved.

    When you hold your cursor over motivate or polish it says "You will get 20 coin for your help." I believe it should be "coins."

    I wasn't sure if they meant coin to be like the word deer (etc.), but if you highlight your main coins supply it says something about "coins" being a main resource.

    The plural of tannery is tanneries, is it not?

    Player X has motivated one of your tannerys. Should be Player X has motivated one of your tanneries.

    In the quest a "Cry for Help" [LMA], one of the tasks is to "Build 3 of any residential from the Late Middle Ages." It should be residential building or residence. The tooltip for the task states residence buildings, but it is a different context.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I believe this is actually for all buildings wiht a "y." The same exists with "one of your librarys.
    .
    Also, it should not say "one of your buildings" if you only have one of that building. Obviously "nit-picky," but maybe some day when they are realllllly bored they can put together the code to discern when you only have one of each building.

    Quest A Shadow From the Past. Last line should read "Please help me learn what's become of him." Not "Please, help me learn what\'s become of him."

    The little candy shop is called a Confectionery, not Confectionary as the game has it.

    (more than) A little late, but:
    Leonardo's quest says it gives you BPs of your current age whereas it actually gives you BPs of up to and including your current age.
    This is quite misleading(and wrong to boot...)

    I'm going to suggest that the language on all the "happiness" quests be adjusted to reflect that only base happiness is counted and not happiness gained by polishing.

    This is obviously frustrating to the players.

    This suggestion was first made in the Proposals subforum, but I agree that it really belongs here, so I'll repeat it now.

    It works much better in English if the game-defined term good deposit is changed to raw material.

    Also, the term refined goods, which I have seen somewhere, should be changed to finished goods. In fact, all references to goods should appear as 'finished goods'. (And, yes, I know that one man's finished goods -- e.g. iron ingots -- may be another man's raw material. But that is irrelevant to this game.)

    It is a cardinal rule of technical writing that once you introduce a term, you never NEVER change it in any way. You need to pay careful attention to terms if you intend to some day actually write instructions for this game. :)

    In Varseilles, Louis XXI says "Oh, what a welcome surprise! Are you here to see the magnificent castle of Varseilles? Let me show you it's beauty!" and should say "Let me show you its beauty!".

    From what I can tell the colonial age "Arcade" house may have been misnamed. The intention, especially judging by the artwork, would seem to have been for them to be "Colonnade" houses. The latter was a common enough architectural style for upscale house frontage in colonial days up through the late 1800's, and would match the artwork used in-game.

    This may be a wee bit more than just a typo. I'm not sure. So follow with me...

    Quests:
    Scout the Mount
    Required: Scout the province in the northeast
    Infiltrate 4 sectors of that province

    Towards Mount Killmore
    Required: Acquire 2 sectors of Mount Killmore

    Enter Mount Killmore
    Required: Acquire 4 sectors of Mount Killmore
    Wrap-up: Your Highness! Very good! There is but one sector remaining - that containing King Darkblood's castle! And it is very defended.

    There are 6 sectors to Mount Killmore. If the quests requires 4, that leaves two... not one. The quest asking for 4 takes into account the prior 2 that have been acquired. I have worked through and typed out these quests and followed them and I have 2 sectors left. Not one.

    A Phalanx is not an individual. It is a group, usually referring to a tight formation of soldiers or police. According to Wikipaedia:

    Hoplites were wealthy, well-to-do, freelance/mercenary soldiers of Ancient Greek city states who fought in phalanx formation. According to Wikipaedia:
    The suggestion is to amend the name of the Phalanx soldiers to either "Hoplite" or "Phalangite".

    I always assumed the "units" in the battle-screen were nothing but a representation of full-fledged brigades/cadres/platoons/phalanxes/what-have-ya.
    Not individuals.

    I have yet to see/hear about an actual battle fought with no more than eight people on either side....

    Ergo: not an error in my books.
