Medical

Pasquale: Furthermore, Roche points out that the areas of the brain where the activity takes place were never even properly charted, let alone decoded.

I'd get rid of 'even'

Pasquale: There are ways to do this by extended meditation, but this can take years.  We have more efficient method nowadays.

'We have more efficient methods nowadays.'

Pasquale: Quinton is well versed in Metathermics, which is the area of psionic development that deals with instigating rapid temperature changes and chemical reactions.  He used to be one of Biotech researchers working on new applications of psionics.

'He used to be one of 'the' Biotech researchers'

First Mission.

Hadrian Tanner:  I think there are total of five outposts plus the one with the generator.

'I think there are 'a' total of five'

Engineering.

Ezra: He speaks with calm and even voice.

'He speaks with 'a' calm and even voice.'

After mind control. Description says.  'You find yourself on a small isle in a middle of lake with no recollection of how you got here.'

Should be more like ' You find yourself on a small isle in the middle of a lake with no recollection of how you got here.'

Vera Hale: Certainly. United Stations, also called Union by some, is a confederacy of stations in north and central Underrail.  it's an attempt to unify the entirety of Underrail so that we could all work together towards a better future of the human race.

'towards a better future 'for' the human race.

Vera Hale: We currently have good trading relations with the union and I personally think it would be a good idea to be among the first to join it here in the south.  We are arguably the most powerful faction in these parts so we could position ourselves advantageously in their organization and also retain high degree of independence.

'in their organization and also retain 'a' high degree of independence.'

Vera Hale:  But let me ask you what is your opinion on the matter?  Would you like to see your station become a member of the United Stations?
option 2. response: 'I'm not sure. I'm reserving judgment until I learn out more about all this.'

remove 'out'

Roman: We're not sure.  it might be that the tunnel just caved in couple of places.......

'We're not sure.  It might be that the tunnel just caved in 'in a' couple of places.

Bisson: Hello, friend.  I don't believe we met. Name's Bisson.

'Hello, friend.  I don't believe 'we've' met.  Name's Bisson.'

Bisson: It's when you focus your mind to create a telekinetic ball and launch it at your target.  Impact is often so strong that if you hit a living target with it you'll likely to daze it for a short while.

'if you hit a living target with it 'you're' likely to daze if for a short while. or 'if you hit a living target with it you'll likely daze it for a short while.

End of First Mission.

Hadrian Tanner: Also, Gorsky has lead an expedition
 into the nearby GMS compound and he requested you specifically join them there.  Go the station platform exit and talk to Essie.

'Go 'to' the station platform and exit and talk to Essie.'

Hopper collection Mission

South Gate Sentry: If you haven't already, be sure to talk to Old Jonas at the Crossroads.  He knows more about the creatures lurking the caves than anyone.

'He knows more about  the creatures lurking 'in' the caves than anyone.'

Would it be easier if I collected a list or shall I just keep posting as I find spelling/grammar errors?

I hope this hasn't already been done, but when you talk to the old man Jonas at the crossroads he has many spelling errors in his speech.

I found two errors:

The first has been mentioned, but I think both suggestions are wrong:

Old Jonas
"From my experience it's the smaller groups or individual tunnelers that you should be vary of.
The word should be "wary."

The second:

Quinton
"If you preform one little task for me"
The word should be "perform."

That's what I have so far. I just got into the caves. Something about this game really clicks with me. I like all the design decisions. This is so cool.

Oh boy. Stumbled upon a huge trove of typos while copypasting information en masse to the wiki.

Blueprint descriptions in the crafting menu have some issues and many component descriptions have (copy-pasted) typos.


Blueprint incendiary bolt:
missing crafting menu description?

Blueprint goggles:
Goggles have to main component: the pair of lenses that provide various advantages
Goggles have two main components: the pair of lenses that provides various advantages

ALL gun frames:
This frame used to create <name> type <gun type>.
This frame is used to create <name> type <gun type>.

Mutant Acid Gland:
With the right skills powerful acid can be extract from it.
With the right skills powerful acid can be extracted from it.

Goggles Frame:
This is a frame for advance tactical goggles.
This is a frame for advanced tactical goggles.


I think the component descriptions had more typos, but I can't find them anymore... the human brain has too good auto-correct features!

Serrated Tungsten Steel Blade
It's a nasty looking serrated steel blade that can be mounted on a metal armor suit to inflict bleeding wounds.

Probably. The current description works as well, but is not different from Serrated Steel Blade.
