Look in the Blades of Avernum Editor Docs, the section about Dealing with Errors: "Blades of Avernum found something it didn't expect in a mathematical expression." My guess is, that means you did something like:
"insert some words here" + 2 or
-57 * if You probably didn't do that intentionally. It might say that if you have an extra or missing quotation mark (") somewhere. Also, look at what line number Blades of Avernum says it is and look on or before that line for mistakes.

Also, the line numbers for this particular error are notoriously bad. If there's nothing wrong with the line BoA is complaining about, check if you're missing end parentheses in a line above that.

I've isolated the error, and am going to keep it out of the thing. My current problem is anotehr annoying thing... LOOK AT THE OTHER TOPIC I'VE POSTED.
