Don't know if this has been mentioned before, couldn't find a result in search...'The ash grue creates flames. ~~~~ is on flames'. Wouldn't it be better to say 'on fire'? Sort of spoils the immersion for me when everything else seems to be so well written. Plus there are inconsistencies in enemy names. Wouldn't they be better capitalised? Otherwise enjoying the game. Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Totally agree that that phrasing is awkward. There's no single idiom that works for all the special terrains in the game, and we just haven't had a chance to polish the ones that require exceptions.

As for capitalization, foe names generally shouldn't be capitalized in the event logs but should have their first letter capitalized in the sidebar. If you see places where that's not the case, let us know.
