Quest spelling mistakes

Post by Uncanny_Valley » Wed Oct 02, 2019 9:19 pm

In my recent playthrough I received the following letter as part of quest.
You dont know me and I dont owe you any
favors and even after this you dont owe me
nothing, you unnderstand? I used to work for
this (merchant's description) by a name
of (merchant's name). Now (he/she) was a
crazy one, (he/she) was. Allways trying to find a
way to get rich. And always quick to blame
someone else when (he/she) got caught with (his/her)
hands in the cookie jar. That's how I got
put away.
If I was you Id look to see if my old
freind had something to do with the steeling
at (employer's building).
A Friend
I know that this is from the original game, but the question is, should this be fixed?

I'm happy to take PRs to fix spelling and grammar errors in quests. Jay is also doing many of these as he discovers them.

With that said, there are occasionally considerations for bad spelling on the part of the character. Take r0c11y26, with a mad murderer:
(Noble's name), the last
one was So Tasty, I eveN toke a bite. Yor
WHole family looks juicy too -- may be the
Ripper will visit you nexxt. Ripping and rippng and tHen a
litle RIPPING to setle the scoor.
Gracishly yors,
The (region) Rippr
These cases should be few but are worth keeping in mind.
