Edit (10/10): Final report, link below. Last thing to do was to go over Mixed Form, and I found a few things (not many, though).
Edit (10/7): Report, link below. Possibly last report, as all that's left is to check all Mixed Form combinations.
Edit (10/4): Another report, not much left now. Link below.
Edit (10/2): And...another report. Link below.
Edit (10/1): Getting closer to the end, and another report (link below).
Edit (9/30): Making progress...another report, another link.
Edit (9/28): Another day, another report. Link below.

Oops, missed one:

Is the sword name misspelled? I'm not sure if it's meant to be "Griffin"/"Gryphon", or "Griffon". "Griffin" and "Gryphon" mean the legendary, mythical creature with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion, whereas a "Griffon" means:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/diction ... %20griffon

"Brussels griffon: any of a breed of short-faced compact rough- or smooth-coated toy dogs of Belgian origin
— called also griffon"

If the sword name is supposed to evoke a doggy, then "Griffon" is fine. If the mythical creature is the intended meaning, however, it should be spelled "Griffin" or "Gryphon". Sorry I missed this one, but I barely caught this one today (while finishing up some work with Mixed Form). Since it's only one item, I figured I should post it here rather than write a (really short) report.

Oh, before I forget:

Wildbill: Once you've handled all personal matters and have time, I've finished going over all the snapshots I took and separated all the pictures containing ellipses. The total number comes to 850 (not counting all the ones mentioned in reports 1-7), but there's bound to be duplicate pictures in there (as Ariel's journey has her travelling in circles, so the same dialogue pops up time and again). I don't think there's more than 100 duplicate files, but I haven't checked them yet (as free time is limited for me at the moment). Once you reach a decision on what you'd like to do about the ellipses, let me know. I'll hang on to the pictures until then. If you decide you'd rather not deal with them, I understand, as that would be a lot of editing. No hurry whatsoever, just wanted to post an update regarding the ellipses.

Hi Bwah177! I don't know, but a quick search pulled up "griffon" as being an acceptable alternative spelling for the mythological creature (though it is not noted in mirriam-webster, it is noted elsewhere), so I wouldn't expect anything to change. ;)

Hi, Draken! How've you been? I remember first passing this picture and I glossed over it, thinking the same thing. Later, while trying to figure out Mixed Form, I had to revisit EVERY Mixed Form combination result, and I saw this picture again. I did a search at Merriam-Webster and the Cambridge Dictionary, but neither had an entry for "griffon". I've seen the older spelling, "gryphon", used here and there, but I think "griffin" is more common. Is "griffon" incorrect? Depends on who you ask, I suppose. Both dictionaries I mention above would say that it is incorrect. Personally, I think it's understandable (I honestly didn't even know a "griffon" was a type of dog until Merriam-Webster cross-referenced it). Does it need to be changed? Like I said, it is understandable (even though I think it's misspelled, I immediately knew it was referring to the mythical creature), so whether it's changed or not isn't really that important. It did strike me as a misspelled word, so I made a note of it, that's all :)

Also, "Aretha" is pretty easy, so most people won't spend too much time with Mixed Form anyway (meaning that most people will never see this "Griffon Swd"). It's a shame, really, as I expected there to be hidden armors/weapons/accessories available through Mixed Form, but after spending many hours experimenting with it, I've reached the conclusion that there's nothing "special" or anything hidden in there. Every item I made through Mixed Form was an improvement on the BASE items (that is, single element combinations). Regardless, it's an interesting system, so I'm looking forward to seeing if they developed it further in "Aretha 2".

Well, I'm off to work. Have a great day, Draken.
