What is the problem with this? Did it print out {location} literally? Can you please write what location you left and entered. Send a PM if you don't want it in public.

One person, two people, three people is good English. One people is not. But I would imagine reprogramming for the singular would be dificult?

I'll add it to the bug list, but low priority.

In the "animals" page, "ostrichs" is written for the plural of ostrich. The correct plural form is "ostriches".

Ostriches are now freed from their poorly-pluralised cage.

There's mixed usage of the words bejeweled and bejewelled in the build menu (and as items I assume). Both are proper words, each being an alternative form of the other but it should probably be consistent.

Items that are bejeweled:
Bejeweled iron bracers
Bejeweled gold statue

Items that are bejewelled:
Bejewelled crown
Bejewelled hand mirror
Bejewelled fan

Thanks. Since "bejewelled" is more British/UK English, and Cantrian English is by convention British English, I changed "bejeweled" to "bejewelled". Those two were indeed the only ones with that spelling.
