    Idiomatic English would actually be 'Defeat Double-faced Jules'. He might be known as 'the double-faced Jules'* but
    1. you would not use 'the' in referring to him by nickname, and
    2. a nickname should be capitalized for best style.


    *(unlikely; I'd drop 'the' completely, but it's not entirely wrong)

    Sure; just figuring I'd get a plug for the idiomatic version in while these things are actually being picked up. :D

    Henry's Birthday (Back pain)

    Maya Roalstad: I've just found out that it's Henry's birthday in a few days. He would never have told me but now I'm going to organize a gigantic surprise party. He really deserves that. Of course he also needs a few gifts but I already have a great idea. Henry constantly complains about back pain and I thought he would love a new, soft mattress made of real sheep cotton. All I need is the wool ...

    Target: Bring Maya three wool.
    Requires:
    Wool 0/3

    cotton comes from cotton plant while wool from sheep :)

    The selection of a character class and profile picture are permanent. You cannot change your selection once you've made your choice.
    The selections or is

    Has to be 'selection is', unless you reword it to 'selections of character class and profile picture are'. The 'a' can't stay in the sentence if you make 'selection' plural.

    Sorry Nandur for stealing your image, but I found a mistake ;):

    I think it doesn't look nice if you write "construct Residences",
    it would look better if both ist written without capitals or only the first word

    Introduction (Introduction)

    Barkeeper Henry Walker: Welcome to my saloon. My name is Henry Walker, I'm the barkeeper. Are you new to this area? Are you interested in earning a few bucks? You see that guy over there at the poker table? People call him Defeat Double-faced Jules. I just saw him pull an ace out of his cuff again. I don't like cheaters in my saloon. Could you please kick him out for me? I'll pay you 5 dollars for it!

    I don't think defeat is part of his name. The tutorial then calls him False John


    The tutorial uses tobacco deprivation and quests uses tobacco shortage

    Second tutorial page 25/28 should be one new attribute not on new attribute

    Should read "Vigor won't help you when you use a firearm and the other way around."

    It should be "knew" ;)

    There should be a capital letter.

    Hotel

    When constructing the Hotel:
    • As mentioned earlier the title of the page says "construct Hotel" which looks weird.
    • It also says "With each construction level of the hotel new, more luxurious rooms are added." This sentence has many grammatical errors and should be changed to something along the lines of "With each new level of the Hotel, more luxurious rooms are added."

    When founding a fort, in the lower right hand corner it says "Fort treasury:"

    I suppose this ought to read "Town treasury:" since the founding of a fort needs money from the town treasury and an empty fort doesn't have a treasury yet.

    On the map, when you move your cursor over a job it reads:
    "job name"
    Labor Points: xxx
    Difficulty: xxx
    "products"

    However there are not the labor points shown, but the sum of the 5 skills, that are needed for the job.
     
  20. In construct Dueler's tower it reads:
    Building and expanding the dueler's tower improves the here positioned soldiers and offers more spots.

    It should read "the soldiers positioned here" rather than "the here positioned soldiers" it is also very non-specific, what is it improving about the soldiers?
