From bug list:

The following typos were fixed:

Polemarms - It says 'Affinity for polemarms' in the initial selection screen for talents.

Sacrificing an animated tree - *MORTAL, I AM NOT BUILDING A BLOODY GARDEN UP HERE! NO MORE TREES! }*

Adequataly - It says 'and adequataly connected to the flow of mana' in the monster memory for a displacer beast.

To you - The game asks: 'What type of scroll to you wish to create?'

With missing - A weather report: 'The sky is filled blazing stars.'

Is fills - Another weather report: 'This moon-lit night is fills with oppressive heat.'

On/in - When entering the Old Barbarian's clearing, the message that appears is 'You immediately feel at peace on this beautiful clearing.'

Skeletal king (monster memory) - Both instances of "It's" should be "Its,". Also, the fifth sentence seems as if it should begin "Skeletal kings" instead of "Skeletal Kings,".

Greater white unicorn - Missing 'to' in its speech: 'Once I will be able all corruption that has been inflicted upon you.'

Absolutly - It says 'You feel absolutly mad!' after eating a greater claw bug corpse.

Two weapon - One message is: 'Weight of the two weapon'.

Water orb - The message when putting the orb is 'Suddenly the humidity dispenses and everything is normal once more.' - it should be 'disperses'.

Tamborine - It should be Tambourine(s).

'The the djinni is gone.' - There is a 'the' too much in the message displayed when a djinni disappears.

Homunculus (monster memory) - It says: 'They are able to make you fall asleep by touch you.' It should be '[...] asleep by touching [...]'.

From the manual for Chaos Knights

"Now they serve as might warriors and brutal fighters" -> mighty
I feel 'brutal' is overused
"The more powerful chaos knights become the more effectively they wield the forces of Corruption." -> I had a hard time parsing this. Definitely need a comma after "become".

Mist elf manual:
"the span of a single Mist Elves life. " -> Elf's, for possession, not plural

"Former members of the common races they have fallen..." (Add a comma after "races")
"Clad in mighty armors, wielding brutal weapons they slay their foes" (I believe this would look better as "Clad in mighty armors and wielding brutal weapons, they slay their foes..."

"At level 6 chaos knights being to regenerate" (begin)
"They are lost to Law and Balance" (on)
"At level 50 they receivea PV bonus of +4d6" (receive a)

"They are lost to Law and Balance" actually makes more sense than "They are lost on Law and Balance".

The forces of Law and Balance have lost the CK and will never recover him.

To me, "lost to" sounds like chaos knights are claimed by law and balance, just like "I lost my orcish spear to an acid trap" means the trap took the spear away. Hence my suggestion, although on second thought, the correct wording might be "Law and Balance are lost on them".

Oh, and thanks Alu for your spoiler posts :D

Ratlings have typo in manual entry: "weight 90 to 120 punds" -- should be "pounds"

Edit: Eh, too late.

If you 'U'se lumps of clay, the message is "You knead the lump of way". Should be "clay" I think.

Chaos knight manual entry: "potentialy ursurping" -- "usurping"

Mist Elves manual entry:

"They physique is weak..." Should be "Their".

"Thus their prefer to wear..." Should be "they".

"...deep in the hills but no normal known has ever seen one of their settlements." I'm not english, but this sounds strange. Maybe, "...deep in the hills, but no known mortal has ever seen...".

Ratlings manual entry:

"These humanoid lean and wiry rats thrive in larger..." Maybe "These lean and wiry humanoid rats..."

Chaos knights manual entry:

"At level 6 chaos knights being to regenerate wounds when they become infused with corruption."

I think there is the word "able" or similar missing after being, but "able" doesn't sound right either. It happens automatically, "able" makes it sound like they have a choice.

Perhaps simply: "At level 6 chaos knights regenerate wounds when they become infused with corruption."

Critically hitting a monster with the ancient scythe as a chaos knight produced incorrect interpunction: "You hit the wight You regenerate. and critically hit it."

"The uncursed trapped clothes [+0, +0] glow in a purple light... and explodes with unprecedented force!" (explode; seems this message doesn't respect plurals)

Maybe not a pure typo but I had this as monster memory for PC in prerelease 9:

A moderately experienced dark elven duelist. He is strong, dumb, headstrong,
graceful, healthy, good-looking, , adequately connected to the flow of mana.
and quite alert. He sidesteps many attacks. He is heavily armored.

(extra comma and space, period instead of space)

From F'rank, the flesh golem, description (both description and typo reported by Arbot):
This flesh golem seems almost sentient, and you are sure you can detect words in its groans. It is huge and slow, but incredibly hardy. Electical sparks jump between metal bolts on its neck. (missing 'r')

From Nuin, the doppleganger, description (both description and mistake reported by grobblewobble):
"You meet Nuin, the doppleganger. This was a warrior from a long forgotten epoch that was trying to please others too much. He was cursed and turned into the doppleganger that takes the form of passing travellers and preys on them." (should be a doppleganger)
