Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A few dialog lines are shared with the Dead Horses language, whether this was done on purpose or was just an oversight is unknown.
  • The line spoken by Joshua Graham to Salt-Upon-Wounds has yet to be translated, and Joshua Sawyer, when asked on formspring, refused to translate it.[1]
