  • Outward Destroyer's Lore- grammatical error

    "One of a lordly and magisterial race, Harbinger prowls the edge of the Void, sole surviving sentry of an outpost on the world at the rim of the abyss. "

    It should read, "Harbinger prowls the edge of the Void, the sole surviving sentry of an outpost on the world at the rim of the abyss."

    EDIT: Rephrased.

      Hmm, this might be an oversight of the developers, but I suspect they may have wanted it this way. I've read it and the original seems alright to me.

          Sorry, that was a typo. I meant Outworld Destroyer.

            I'm not sure that's actually an error. It makes perfect sense if you think of it like a title.

              After reading it again, I can see your point. It does work in a poetic sense. That being said, my suggestion still stands.

                While it is a bit of a run-on sentence, this is not grammatically incorrect, nor would adding 'the' make it read any smoother.

                  It is written like that because it is serves as a title of sorts. I see no need to change this. It's like "I am Zeus, God of Olympus".

                    No, the definitely needs to be added. That is in no way a title like Mr-President seems to think. Do you really think something that long is a title? Lol. It is definitely an error.

                      It makes sense. It sounds better Valve's way anyway.

                        Grammarically the original is correct. You knew this thread was set for fail when the title was posted "Grammatical error" not "Grammarical error".

                          Grammatical

                          gram·mat·i·cal/grəˈmatikəl/

                          Adjective:

                          1.Of or relating to grammar.
                          2.Well formed; in accordance with the productive rules of the grammar of a language.


                          Please know your words before you criticize people, as you just made yourself look like a fool. Grammarical is not even a word.

                            "Grammarical" is not a word, blairferrel.
