[3.4.0] Minor text issues

Just got back into Angband after my obligatory post-death hiatus and found a few minor text issues in this version.

1: When a monster hits or misses you, the "the" at the beginning of the sentence needs to be capitalized.
2. The Mushroom of Terror's description has two words shuffled around, saying "...it speeds up you temporarily...".
3. The ring of Feather Fall doesn't describe its effect when inspected, instead it only says "Feather Falling". While most of us know what that means, it might not be a bad idea to describe it for the noobs.

Otherwise, loving Angband as much as ever! Maybe some day I'll actually win.

So you played Angband when you were alive, and now as a spectre you start playing again? Are there are some rules in afterlife about not playing computer games too soon after death?

Ha, yes, in the afterlife there are a number of mandatory orientation courses (Incorporeal Forms and You, Introduction to Haunting, etc) that really interfere with one's time to reflect on their past-life via video games.

In any case, thank you for the laugh, I definitely did NOT expect that response

The devs got so scared of ghosts that they forgot to answer.

If this is the thread where devs will take note of small text issues, I'd like to mention (again) one that drives me batty:

[soapbox]

The level feeling message "There are naught but cobwebs..."

Should read: "There is naught but cobwebs..."

You don't say 'there are nothing here.' You say 'there is nothing here.' Same deal.

[/soapbox]

I believe there is a ticket for the first one, but I can't seem to find it.

The second one I'll fix (tomorrow, unless someone beats me to it)

I don't feel passionately about the third.

Nobody feels passionately about Feather Fall.
