Hi Zack.

Ironically as I just said, a mysterious lady showed up and gave me the amulet, which helps.


The issue with item handling is that you fundimentally can't keep hold of most of the items which are necessary, ie, those which have perminant effects such as armour or your navaid, long enough to hold enough food and a canteen to drink out of.

As I said, I think there should've been a napsack or belt pouch option, which held just enough food and your canteen so that you don't have to keep switching things around which is a right royal pain especially in the middle of the desert while dying of heat exhaustion.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,
Perhaps this is just me, but I haven't ever noticed much of the item handling difficulties you describe. I keep all my ralls and food and such in a sack, and only take out what I need at the time. Granted, I haven't progressed quite as far as you have, it seems, but still, I don't have much trouble.
   As for the silver amulet, I can help with this.

You can get the silver amulet by being especially cheritable towards peasants. At least, I've gotten it this way: there may be a place in the dungeons or elsewhere to get it too.
Best,
Zack.

Hi.

I do actually have a backpack (it was one of the ways I initially made cash while hunting, but I stil seem to have to drop everything to take food or my canteen out of my pack.

It's just the amount of typing and turns lost that is plain annoying, ---- as I said, it killed me in the desert.

I'll try forod cave again, ---- Though imho it's verry irritating (not to say illogical), that you can't get out by moving in one direction and back, but i hope it doesn't take too long getting out sinse I'm not sure if I can carry the ikon and enough supplies, ----- again, something which would be nicely fixed by automatically being able to cary 8 lb food and one canteen.

It's a real shame the source is lost, sinse this really does spoil the game imho.

A silver amulet hint would I think help, ----- though it's probably in one of the places I just haven't been to yet such as ishon (where I'm heading now).

One thing I do like about eamon is it's really short commands and abbreviations, ----- which even existed in the early 80's versions, ---- for instance just pressing enter to repeat the current turn, typing a gob to attack a goblin or eat food etc. Something of this sort in fallthrough, ---- or the ability to write macros would really improve the game. But again, sadly lost source code, even if the game could be altered.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
