Yeah, /C means hold control, and ctrl + i is use mindcraft powers.  I have to advise against the class unless you want a challenge though.  In my experience, a wizard is better in every way, with the one exception being slower weapon skill growths.

Oh and playing roguelikes on laptops are cumbersome. ADoM however is one of the few roguelikes where I managed to use the numpad by turning on and off Fn-lock.

If not you can always do something I've considered doing, to buy a separate numpad that attaches through USB-port.

There's also the old HJKL-controls (or whatever letters they are) but I can't imagine this being very convenient.

Re: diagonal movement. You can also move with the regular number keys (and thus diagonally with 1, 3, 7 and 9). Slightly cumbersome, but it works. And as humans, we can get used to anything, right?

But -- but, Minotauros, I thought you were a buffalo man. You lied to us?

Minotaur's got it half-right; for some reason, the regular number keys are upside-down. As in, 1 walks south-west

Sorry, I had Caps-lock on.

Also, why can't I quit during character creation? And why is it that when I Crtl-Alt-Delete out, the game permanently breaks?

Well, being half-human, I can at least half get used to anything :P
