Grammar error


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this has already been posted; however, during Chapter 3 with the Bounty Hunter, the block of text that show up during log in has an error.


Whenever you're denoting possession and using a word that ends in an "s" (such as my character's name Dionys, you don't add an apostrophe and as, you only need the apostrophe.


Currently, part of Chapter 3 says,


Dionys's first target is the...


When it should say,


Dionys' first target is the...


Not a huge deal, but I thought I'd bring it to your attention. =)

There are grammatical errors in-game, but this isn't one of them.


In singular nouns ending with a sibilant "s", modern practice is to include an apostrophe-S after the ending S, such that "Dionys's" is correct.


Historically, this has not always been the case, and so your argument is understandable. But this isn't wrong.
