    What spell is Spellstrike in the description of Globe of Invulnerability (bg1 26559 ; bg2 8064)? An unused spell?
    EDIT:
    Found it. I didn't manage to find it before because there are three different translations. We must to unify them.
    It would be useful if the tool allows me to search the English strings, @Coriander @JuliusBorisov .

    When you edit the post and add tags, they don't work. So I quote your comment so that @Coriander sees it.

    Does 20866 match with GAELEN10 and 68805 with IRENIC82? The sounds are missing.

    The in-game description for the Priest of Tyr uses different phrasing from all three other Cleric kits when it comes to how many times per day they can use their special abilities.

    E.g.

    Priest of Tyr
    "May cast Divine Favor once per day every 10 levels of the caster (starts at 1st level with one use.)

    All other Cleric kits
    "May cast [ability name] once per day. Gains one use at level 1 and one additional use every X levels thereafter."


    I suggest that the Priest of Tyr's description be changed to be consistent with the other kits.

    BG1ee #1918 The matching audio is GENMG12. Does it strike home?
    TEXT - Watch yourself! There's strange magic around that Ardenor. Not like any hobgoblin I ever seen!
    AUDIO - Yeah, mate?

    #11750 - Wrong token (BASSILLUS rather than BASSILUS).

    The singular form of "djinn" is "djinni" in D&D, across all editions (and in islamic folklore as well).

    Sources:
    Monstrous Manual 2nd edition, p. 126
    Monster Manual 5th edition, p. 141-142

    (Edit: This is for BG1/SoD)

    Affected StrRefs ("djinn" should be "djinni" for all of these):

    29262
    As if that would do any good with that powerful djinn by his side.

    29598
    Even then, he required the aid of his djinn servant.

    29864
    With that damned djinn Najim at his side, Baeloth is unstoppable.

    30334
    After a furious slag, he stepped aside and let his pet djinn bind me.

    31899
    The roaring crowd, my obedient djinn slave keeping the prisoners in line, the sound of hammer crushing bone—ah, such fond memories!

    31900
    How did you GET the djinn in the first place?

    31907
    But I am nothing if not calculatingly cautious, and so I instructed that djinn jerk Najim to grant me a final wish: that I be protected from death.

    31908
    Oooh! That was a good one! Wait, how is djinn spelled?
    (refers to Str 31907)

    45229
    I called forth the djinn Nazramu from the Elemental Plane of Air.

    This is probably the wrong subforum for this, but there is a Swedish spelling mistake under the categories "Other Languages". One subcategory/subforum reads "Svenskt". It should read "Svenska". I'm 100% certain of this.

    There's a typo in both the item name and description of the "Staff of Rynn".

    According to the description, the staff is from "Myth Rynn", but the name of the location is actually "Myth Rhynn". It follows that the name of the item should also be "Staff of Rhynn".

    The location name is also correctly given as "Myth Rhynn" in StrRefs 1044, 1116, 1120, 3716, 5814, 6836, 7002, 16331, 23474, 23513, 39576, 55313, 56582, 57914, 57958, 59010, 61362, 97342, 97343 (some of these refer to the "Rhynn Lanthorn", a McGuffin from Myth Rhynn that leads the PC to Suldanessellar).

    Sources:
    Lands of Intrigue (Tethyr), p. 65
    Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (3E), p. 296

    Affected StrRefs ("Rynn" should be "Rhynn"):

    7937
    Staff of Rynn +4

    39636
    There was a time when magic was distrusted even more so than now, and the burning of "heretics" was woefully common. Delmarey, a witch from the swamplands near Myth Rynn, faced just such a fate when she was blamed for an unseasonable drought.

    The name of the item "Zios Studded Necklace" contains a typo. The name of the gemstone is "ziose", as evidenced in other Realms sources, but also in StrRefs 7125 and 15828.

    Affected StrRefs in BG1:
    6904
    Studded Necklace with Zios Gems

    Affected StrRefs in BG2:
    6904
    Zios Studded Necklace

    The Thac0 string of the Gauntlets of Weapon Expertise is 10332 (To Hit) rather their name; beside it doesn't work with Rasaad (I continue to have +0 with and without).

    I have found a couple of spelling issues in PST:EE, but I'm not certain if this is intended style or needs to be fixed.

    Strref 30734:
    "I passed my Administrator exam just recently, and have achieved the status of an 'A9,' a research consultant in the Hall of Records, one of the many aides specializing in Sigil's physical laws and history. I research topics and laws of interest to others. It is quite fascinating, really..."

    Strref 30754:
    He continues: "It reaches a peak, called *peak,* then fades until the Sigil is completely dark, called *anti-peak.* The source of luminescence is unknown, but it is most likely the Lady's will."

    There are many more instances where punctuation is included in quotes. I'll post more when it's confirmed to be a typo.

    In American English it is typical to include punctuation within quotation marks. Back in the day, American English was chosen as the standard for BG:EE and BGII:EE; not sure what the plan is wrt PST:EE though.

    I'm sorry. I only skimmed your post. What I noticed was that the first instance you had there had single quotations around the word while the following examples were in asterisks. I assumed that was the inconsistency. At second glance, the last two examples are likely from stilted, gith-type speech, which correctly uses asterisks. No problem there.

    Punctuation should be included in quotes. PS:T is in American English, so the punctuation inside the quotations and asterisks is correct. In English English, the punctuation would be outside the quotation marks and asterisks. An an aside, this isn't a strict rule to follow. In Wild Surge, I keep the punctuation outside as well. So long as a document consistently does things one way or the other, it's fine. :)

    Wow. I would never understood that. I use: «“,‘,’,”» like {[()]}. Actually English quotation marks '' must die; it's a drudgery to study Logic with them.

    Oh, now I see why the orthographic corrector always ask me to replace armor (which is missing even on my dictionary) with armour.

    Yeah, Bioware is a Canadian company, but Interplay was an American publisher, so we get American spelling.

    I've found a few in BG2:

    - When you kick Keldorn out of the party, you can say "We'll meet there if have need of your services." It should say "if I have."

    - Delon, the kid in Athkatla who gives you the Umar Hills quest, says "Everyone is terrible frightened." It should say "terribly."

    - Elence Fielding, a merchant in Umar Hills, says "so goods are spare." It should say "sparse."

    - During the Viconia romance, she says "it is not words I am familiar with." It should say "they are."

    - Also during the Viconia romance (and this one is pretty funny), she says "My mother wished me to recant, to prostate myself before the Spider Queen and beg for forgiveness." It should say "prostrate."

    Among spells that are dispelled by Breach there is: Protection Circle. What is it? A paper game reference? It should be removed.
