lib/help/dungeon.txt:327
"For example, if you are injured and drink an unknown" sentence breaks.

I would also add period (full stop) on row 279
-yet identified the flavor of will be labeled {unknown}
+yet identified the flavor of will be labeled {unknown}.

When reviewing help files for my variant (by doing a WinDiff? with the Angband files), I found a bunch of typos and obsolete references in the current help files (race/class stat boni for example). Instead of creating specific issues, there should probably be a "review help files" general issue.

I will do another review of those files when I release the next version for my variant. If nobody has opened an issue since then, I'll do it and post all my updates.

  • Keywords help added
  • Milestone changed from Triage to 3.4.0
  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Summary changed from dungeon.txt missing end of sentence to Proof in-game help for typos and obsolete refs

The bug is filed against 3.3.0, but fph has done a lot of work since then in converting the help to RST, so may have picked up a number of the typos etc. But yes, they can always do with another pass - tagging for 3.4

All affected files have been attached. I hope I didn't break the whole formatting of these files...

Many thanks for your work. I *think* we're moving towards RST being the authoritative helpfile format, but hopefully fph (who did the initial conversion) will be able to do these updates by diffing against the versions in master.

In the current help files, there are some words starting with "s" that have the "s" missing: (s)quare, (s)et, (s)taff, (s)imply, (s)afe...

fph fixed a lot of these errors, but some remain.
