Leaving towns can kinda be a a bit of a chore. Most seem to be rather large and kinda empty. So far anyways. It would be nice if there was some sort of command to allow exiting towns quickly rather than having to back track and find the way back out.  Or at least have multiple exits out of the towns.

Yeah, I totally understand that. I'd add that if there was a simple way to exit the area without making it weird, out of place, or unintuitive in-game.

Just posting two things that will be in the next release:

Autoexplore: toggle on/off to explore the current area.

Single click mouse movement: Click the tile you want to move into. Fairly similar to the one in Brogue.

Any chance of adding an alternate mouse based control method for scrolling/choosing menu options other than using a scroll wheel? Like maybe just clicking on the options in menus or right clicking to cycle through them?

Believe it or not, I don't have a scroll wheel so it makes trying to play with the mouse kinda fumbly.

I can absolutely make them scrollable with right click. Clicking the option rows actually is very hard to do since the y-coordinates of the options are too dynamic. There's too much moving parts :).

Thanks for the menu alternative.

I was giving it a go and I think the quartermaster quest is bugged. I delivered a package to summerdale, then returned. The quartermaster asked me if I had done what he asked, but I'm only left with the option to "return". Am I missing a step?

Also, how do I manage my party members? can i equip them, heal them, give orders, etc? How so? It seems like they don't heal when I rest if my character is at full health.

Where do I find the king?

The towns are still kinda getting in the way of my enjoyment of the game. navigating them is quite tedious and they seem needlessly large for the amount of content within.

Works for me, I delivered all three packages and it worked.

You can heal them with the Healing spellbook. I believe I'll add Scrolls of Healing though that can be targeted. Yeah, they don't heal to full if you're already at full. Perhaps I should change the Rest until Healed so it'd take into account party members too. You can though press 'r' to do regular waiting and they heal.

There's no ordering and equipping. They are level scaled, their Damage/HP/all attributes are increased when you gain levels. For example Gann's HP is 30 + player's level * 1.5 and melee damage is 1d(6+player.level / 4) + 2 + player.level / 8 + player.level / 8. So they can become very powerful.

The middle area of Westerfall.

I get that. My reasoning for that is realism, not everybody in the cities/villages need help. I'll add over the course of time more quests though.

that's why I asked if I am missing something. I deliver summerdale package first. then when I go back to the guy who gave me the quest, my quest item is gone, but he just asks me if I finished. The other packages are no longer on the floor. How am I supposed to finish it?
