On the item "An Open Letter on Oppresion and Peacocks" the first paragraph says "[written in a furious, sloping hand,"

I'm not certain if sloping is the right word here and I would like the devs to be aware, you know, just in case.

Also, the item Lorroakan's contract - it says "seeks brave and enterprising individuals to delve treacherous temple and recover storied artefaxt"

I'm beginning to believe that this is showing the character of those who have written these letters according to what the items listed here describe but I wanted awareness of whether these are typed wrong or whether this is more of a world building type of idea with the grammatical errors.

I've noticed a few other spelling mistakes myself. I'll screenshot them as I come across them and share them if it'll make a difference.

I see nothing wrong with "sloping". Makes perfect sense. The written text looks as though it was written in an excited manner (furious) and inclining up (or down) the page, instead of straight across the horizontal (sloping).

You should also be careful calling out grammatical errors in-game, because there's nottin rong with rel peple making mistaes.

I can't remember exactly where, but there's a place where the word "fulfill" is spelled "fulfil" with only one L at the end.

Sloping describes the appearance of the handwriting and is used quite often in British literature in my experience, so nowt wrong with it.

Both spellings are technically correct, but the second is better as it is UK English, aka Official English wink
