The Broken Hourglass: Tiny Update

Not a whole lot of stuff to say about The Broken Hourglass today. I'm still proofreading. It takes a surprising amount of time even for short quests. There are all the possible lines of dialog to read, plus any item descriptions, plus any stringhead tags or special spell descriptions.  And this is only the first proofread, the one to make sure things are consistent and to fix really glaring comma errors.

Someone is still going to have to go back through the whole thing with a fine-toothed comb when we're finished and fix all the remaining comma problems, grammar glitches, and whatnot. Preferably, it would be several someones, but we haven't got that many people, and I'm assuming you all want to see the game before the century is out.

Now, off to read "Look Up in the Sky."  It's another of the quests I have not read yet, so I'm looking forward to finding out what it's about.

By the way, I don't know how much you'll see of the quest titles when we're finished. Certainly they won't show up in the game; I don't know if we're keeping the separate folders or not. Right now, they're handy for prefixing, coding, and proofreading purposes.
