    "Repeatable quests (Teething troubles)

    Maya Roalstad: Hello Far Eastern, I am supposed to teach in sunday school tonight, but I caught a cold. Could you substitute for me?"

    I think that "teaching" is correct. Thing is that this error transcends beta world to the rest of the worlds... and nobody seems to notice that...

    Could be, but it makes no sense. Maya is a grown up person, she catched a COLD, not a problem with her teeth... Remember that some verbal expressions cannot be translated "ad literam". So, I still think that the correct word there is "teaching".

    ..perhaps "childish diseases" would be a better one ;)

    teething trouble is a set phrase for the german "kinderkrankheiten".

    kinderkrankheiten are generally child ilnesses, right?

    teething trouble is particulary used for baby pain when baby teeth are growing.

    And quest text is saying that Maya caught a cold.

    something is not logical, either quest name or quest text.

    where is your problem here?
    paper can be really heavy if you have enough of it, so it's definitely possible to get a hernia.
    also must every injury message really be resonable? can't we have a little bit of fun with this messages?

    English Text Errors

    Text of job "Chasing bandits":
    -- "them" is missing.
    ..and I'm not quite sure about "track" - I think it's "trek", but someone natively speaking english should clarify that ^^

    It is missing the word "them". "Tracks" is correct though.
