Grammar quibble

"You feel there are naught but cobwebs here." ...makes me cringe every time I read it.

"Are" should be "Is."

My grammar quibble is with the ubiquitous:
"The Arrow (1d4) (+0,+0) hit <whatever>"

Since the messages are generally in the present tense, not a retrospective on past events, it seems it should be "hits".
