"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...

it is correct so. the german version is "kinderkrankheiten" so in english "teething troubles"

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".

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?

Text of job "Chasing bandits":
A group of bandits keeps attacking the coaches and tracks. If you find them there will be a lot of money. If you survive at least.
-- "them" is missing.
..and I'm not quite sure about "track" - I think it's "trek", but someone natively speaking english should clarify that ^^
