Umm, you sure you don't have that backwards? From your quote, doesn't reads correctly..

"One of the few blood magic spells that do not require"

vs

"One of the fhew blood magic spells that does not require"

Second is correct.

"Spells that do not require" is a complete phrase, I believe, and that's why I think it shouldn't be "doesn't". The "do not require" part describes the group that this particular spell is part of, not the spell itself.

I guess that we should ask someone like georgevtucker to be sure.

Right, but it doesn't say spells that do not require. It says "One of the few" first, which changes the word after a bit..right or wrong, do -sounds- wrong to me.

-- From skimming the strings in the Linux binary:

(notes below biased by American English habits...)

Wispering Legion: should probably be Whispering. Check list of mercenary bands.

Celestial Apostats: Should this be "Apostates"?

"The spell wasn't targetet at a forest and had no effect." appears; either 'strings' is messing up or s/targetet/targeted/.

"The spell did not find a suitable target fortification and was effectless", probably s/effectless/ineffectual/.

"The fortification in this province was temporary breached by the spell": s/temporary/temporarily/.

"Mighty storms blew the %s off target. The spell struck an emtpy location". s/emtpy/empty/. Also appears in "The was no suitable target for the %s. The spell struck an emtpy location", which needs s/the/there/ for the first sentence as well. Well, s/emtpy/empty/g.

Grammar: Gems and girls, being countable, should appear in "huge numbers", not "huge amounts". This appears with the wish-fulfillment text.

"The entire earth trembeled" -- s/trembeled/trembled/. Armageddon wish.

"Vanheim have leaders that can sail..." s/have/has/. Tip text.

"Ambidexterous soldiers do not suffer from as much attack..." Matter of taste, but consider s/suffer from as much/suffer as much from/, or even s/do not suffer from as much/incur lower/.

"Only a few items grants the wearer..." s/grants/grant/. Right afterwards, "Other forces the owner" s/other forces/others force/.

"%s's summoning was sucessfull, but"... s/successfull(\w)/successful$1/g well, if \w is word-boundary anyway.

I think the between-turns tip about Soulless and how they are equipped based on their living form, has a typo where the word "were" should be "where". I only had a few seconds to look at it though, so maybe I was reading it wrong.

Also, the tip about visiting the illwinter web site to look for patches should read "to see if there are any" rather than "to see if there is any".

It should be "One of the few Blood magic spells that does not require . . ."

A singular subject ("one") requires a singular verb ("does").

Unless you view it as a part of the group, and you're describing the group with the subsequent phrase, then it would require a plural verb. It depends on what "that" refers to. I think it refers to describing the spell group, and that it's not a part of the predicate, but rather a descriptive attribute of the noun "spells", as there is another part of the sentence following that phrase.
Doesn't really matter, of course.

In case this hasn't been pointed out, there's a magic site called 'wispering woods' - should be 'whispering woods'
