    MAXIMUM FUN FEATURE!

    Antti, we need to be able to see first what the merchants have to sell, then exit dialogue. If it is a valuable item, then we can Exit from Talk and attack the merchant, otherwise if we decide its not worth attacking or we are still too weak, then --> go back into dialogue and trade with them!

    Currently there is no way to SEE FIRST what the merchant has on offer AND exit dialogue then enter into the dialogue again. Final farewell should be "BYE!" so we release the merchant not to meet them again.

    Later merchants should be visualized on the main map, traveling nicely with their caravan, so marauders - like my happy party - can track the merchants and attack them, A'la Battle Brothers. Maybe then visualize GUARDS strength / numbers traveling beside the caravan.

    Usually dungeons do not contain highly useful items. That's why people like me scour the roads up and down, up and down *X times, until a merchant is found. Kill the merchant and take his valuable Blizzard scrolls and high priced items. Lots of fun! Hunt Loot Burn Kill with my party and repeat. Great stress reliever.

    I just heard about this for the first time, peeked at screenshots and got a Wizard's Crown vibe. Sell me this game.

    • 8 characters
    • well thought out spells - f.ex. debuff/control area of effect spells, are not useless when nuke spell come into play
    • freedom - buy scroll/potions/wand/food with powerful spell and wipe out enemies even as greenhorns
    • crafting - easy& available from start, put your spells into potions or scrolls, and let your cripple build characters do something.
    • fast - after key input, there is instant performance [not like in Natuk or Vogel games]
    • decent inventory
    • quite bloody
    • old school difficulty - go wherever you want and get your ass beaten.
    • fair amount of status to get during combat or spell casting
    • learn new spell by buying books
    • you can complain on the internet about the game mechanic/balance, and feel superior
    well, I'm not the best merchant, but you doesnt look like undecided customer either.

    This seems to be the 2.1053 version. The latest one is 2.1055 I think. The link here seems to work perfectly for me:
