This long, hairy little creature is very friendly, albeit a bit odd

"musclar" should be "muscular". The second u is missing.

help card games

>Poker:
>Welcome to the card game poker, which is very different from help poker.

Yep, card games are way different from help files. :P  "This is a version of the
classic game of poker using the collectable cards explained above, rather
than playing the game against others (see 'help poker')."
 
 
It would be nice if the hands and rewards were on the same line- e.g.
  Royal Flush  (50 Quest Points):
to condense the entire list and make it easier to view at a glance.


At the bottom of the help file:
 
>** You do not need to have autoloot toggled on, these will be looted
>   automatically from a corpse as long as you get exp from killing it.
>   You must also have the capacity to carry the card, if you are over
>   weight or item count, the card will not be looted.
 
This should be up under 'The deck:" section since it pertains to the cards,
not just poker.  Also  could use a few changes to the paragraph:
 
** Cards will be looted automatically regardless of autoloot and other
   settings, provided you received experience for the kill that generated
   the card.  Normal inventory limits still apply- you will not loot cards
   if you are    over weight or item capacity limits.
 
 
Also, 'help aardpoker' as an alternative keyword, for those of us that still
remembered it as such, would be nice

     (M) The dark malingering presence clouds your vision and your heart.
 
"Malingering is the fabricating of symptoms of mental or physical disorders 
for a variety of reasons such as financial compensation (often tied to fraud);
avoiding school, work or military service; obtaining drugs; or as a mitigating 
factor for sentencing in criminal cases."
 
Though not sure without more context, I think this was intended to be a dark,
malicious, lingering presence instead.

Needs comma (dark, malingering / dark, malicious, lingering) either way.

The first is a real typo, but the second one is correct.

MOBs on Aard can have "plural" set, so that the MOB will use plural-
matching verbs (are vs is). 

For why I believe that it should apply to reeds and not to marshgrass,
this is based on the fewer-vs-less distinction. Reeds are considered to
be a "countable" resource. Someone would be holding "a reed", "two reeds",
or "a few reeds". But for grass/marshgrass, unless you talk about "blades
of grass", the grass itself is considered to be a more/less uncountable/
numberless thing. Kind of like some sand is here, but some puppies are here.

Walking into aylor from the west (Western High Road (12664) to Western

Mobs can not follow through there.
 
While true, it can be a bit confusing to figure out what's going on.  Maybe a
line more like "Your pet isn't allowed in here and has to wait for you.' or
something would be more clear.
 
Walking from Whitewind Avenue (32450) to Phoenix Square (32420) has the same
end result (pet doesn't follow), but there is no message given.  Not sure whats
is different- continent to area, no_mob exit vs room flag, something else?

I think that the wording of help confiscate should be changed to make
it clear whether "one confiscate will return all owned items from a single
player's pfile to you" or "one confiscate will return all owned items from
all other pfiles to you". The way it's worded now, it sounds like it
would be the latter, but I think it's the former.
