This is from Tremalking to Falme aboard the Red Herring located at the north dock.

Aboard the Red Herring
A strong and sturdy boat, this three-masted bark has sufficient
accommodation for a large amount of people and cargo and the ability to
sustain them for a longer journey. Although judging from the rigging and
sails it is not originally a Seanchan vessel, it now serves the Empire. A
skiff is hanging in brackets on the starboard side.

A busy dockmaster stands here, carrying a ledger (Wizinvis).
A sturdy white-maned pony tosses its head here, being ridden by you.
A captain stands here, giving orders.

* R HP:Healthy MV:Full > say order departure please
You say 'order departure please'

* R HP:Healthy MV:Full >
A captain nods with satisfaction.

* R HP:Healthy MV:Full >
The captain barks out commands to his sailors and the bark sets off.

This has to be the most often reported non-typo there is:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barque

A barque, barc, or bark is a type of sailing vessel with three or more masts having the fore- and mainmasts rigged square and only the mizzen (the aftmost mast) rigged fore-and-aft.

* R HP:Scratched MV:Full > l lieutenant
Walking with a grace rarely seen in a Shienaran soldier this is one of the
selected few who serve Lord Agelmar and the Lord Majors of Fal Dara.
Trusted with the hardest task, these men are the greatest fighters of the
north.

A Shienaran lieutenant is in excellent condition.

a Shienaran lieutenant is using:
<worn on head> a metal helmet
<worn on hands> a pair of metal half-gauntlets
<wielded two-handed> a two-fisted flamberge
<worn about waist> a wide leather belt
<worn on belt> a soft leather pouch
<worn on legs> a pair of thin metal leggings
<worn on feet> a pair of thin metal boots

* R HP:Scratched MV:Full > x
No-one by that name here.

Beneath a Cliff's Ledge
Providing adequate protection from both the northern winds and the sun
during day this indentation below the cliff's overhang is an ideal resting
place. The cliff's sheer wall is cold to the touch with a slight moisture
collecting on the rocks.

The corpse of a rat is lying here.
A Tairen bloodstock stallion stands here, tail swaying with the breeze, being ridden by you.

It's not a typo but afaik there's no prevailing canon about Shienarans not being graceful, which is what that sentence sounds like. If the description is meant to highlight that he has exceptional grace (for a soldier) it should just say 'a grace rarely seen in a soldier'. The descriptions of other Shienaran soldiers routinely have descriptors like 'with practiced ease'. It's also contradictory because these mobs are generic soldiers for their rank.

* HP:Healthy MV:Fresh > Falme Barracks
A cavernous stone archway forms the entrance to a large, almost palace-like
building which appears to be used as a barracks for the Ever Victorious
ARmy, as well as to house any foreign soldiers wishing to join the Corenne.
A glimpse down a corridor and through a distant doorway reveals a dorm
containing beds, with huge trunks sitting at their feet, a place for the
occupants to store their belongings.
[ obvious exits: N S ]
Some thick-soled, heavy leather boots stand stiffly together.
A set of chainmail leggings lay upon the ground.
A set of chainmail sleeves lie upon the ground.
A densely woven shirt of thick mail is here.
A bundle of chainmail lies on the ground.
The barracks keeper performs his duties here.

Garden of Silver Breezes
This place called a 'garden' is actually a rather large wine shop. Polished
green balustrades replace one wall of the shop. The open area overlooks a
hill that falls away to give a clear view of the harbor, across the domes
and spires of the city. The harbor is crowded with ships. Up the curving
staircase is another floor to the wine shop. The staircase is blocked off
for rennovations. A sign hangs on the far wall.

A woman of indeterminate age gives a sleek smile at your patronage.

You do not see that here.
