    I like it! There are a few spelling mistakes here and there but otherwise it was pretty sweet.

    A few thoughts:
    I really like the idea of using corpses as containers and looting them rather than uselessly picking them up as some roguelikes do.

    There were a few menus where I was trying to hit ESC to get out of them and getting nowhere fast (the equipment screen I think). Space seems like an unintuitive choice to me.

    Hitting get when there's just one item on the ground should just pick up the item without bringing up a menu with only one option on it. A minor point really but it makes things a little bit easier.

    Your right, I forgot how annoying was for me too to leave equipment menu at first times.

    And for corpses, I have more ideas but it's to early to implement them :)

    It's neat!

    One thing: The [W]ilderness movement mode is a bit unintuitive -- it took me a while to realize why I sometimes wouldn't move when I had it open and hit a direction.

    Do you plan to improve it? For instance, by having your character try to automatically determine a path to the edge of the current 'square' from a [W] perspective, and attempt to walk it, rather than just walking in a straight line?

    Of course, that could still cause problems if you walk into a dead end while using [W] in an underground maze or something... hmm.

    Most of the bugs are fixed, and I have added some more things. Check next version, it is uncoplite because villages and towns are empty but it's worth to see it.
