This mod fixes various typos and bugs I've noticed in the Journal entries.
As of v1.1 this mod is expanded to fix bugs in the descriptions of various Quest entries.

Pendant of the Morning Frost aka da2_pro_fut01. I am using this addin to make the patch file to edit the talktables.

In case you find more typos, let me know and I'll see what I can do about them.

If you want to manually do this:

1. Download DA2 TLK Converter and extract it
2. Copy and paste the <path_to_game>\packages\core\data\talktables\core_en-us.tlk file to where your TLK Converter is
All base game strings are located here or in <path_to_game>\modules\campaign_base\data\talktables\campaign_base_en-us.tlk.
For DLC strings, you'll have to search their talktables in their addins directories.
For MOTA: <path_to_game>\addins\da2_prc_eye\module\data\talktables\da2_prc_eye_en-us.tlk
3. Open the Command Prompt window pointing to your TLK Converter directory and type:
da2tlkconv -d core_en-us.tlk unpacked.txt
4. Open the unpacked.txt in any text editor and change the strings you want
5. Delete everything except the modified string and its ID once you are done. Example:
Kirkwall is guarded by mountains to its north...
6. If you have multiple IDs by the time you are done, make sure that they are listed in an ascending order
7. Save the changes done in the file and go back to the Command Prompt window and now type:
da2tlkconv -c unpacked.txt da2_pro_fut01_c_en-us_p.tlk
8. Put the da2_pro_fut01_c_en-us_p.tlk file inside of your override directory

Adding "_p" at the end of the tlk file name makes the game look at it as a patch. That's why we are using a talktable that has no patches, in this case Pendant of the Morning Frost.
Big thanks to Hermaen2000, Ashhawk and anshela for motivating me to tackle this issue until I discovered this method.
