Hi, the dialogue when reading the book about the Forge of Legends has a grammatical mistake. It uses "it's" as a possessive, when it should use "its." Thanks!

FYI

Rule 1: When you mean it is or it has, use an apostrophe.
Examples:
It’s a nice day.
It’s your right to refuse the invitation.
It’s been great getting to know you.
Rule 2: When you are using its as a possessive, don’t use the apostrophe.
Examples:
The cat hurt its paw.
The furniture store celebrated its tenth anniversary.
Note: From what we understand, the possessive was also written it’s until a couple of hundred years ago. While we don’t know for certain, it is possible that the apostrophe was dropped in order to parallel possessive personal pronouns like hers, theirs, yours, ours, etc.”

Yes, I'm aware. The word was used in the dialogue once correctly, but also once incorrectly. I can send a screenshot, if you'd like.
