Maybe I figured that one out... looks like I was up to 'x' in my inventory slots, and it didn't like that. So I dropped something, and then I was automatically picking up the arrows again.

Of course the danger with saying that is that you then have to deal with the pull requests 8-)

I've also stuck a tweak to the forests off in a branch, but you probably don't want that.

Yes, but I can do that without putting my brain into think mode.

Looks interesting - how does it play?

Yeah, store pricing is a bit dodgy. The pickup thing is probably a bug too - there are definitely some bugs with pickup to do with recognising if the pack is full or not.

Haven't had much of a chance to test yet, halfway down Tol-In-Gaurhoth right now. I'm hoping not having missile attacks completely crippled will make a second pass at Nan-Dungortheb a little less annoying (I aborted the first before making the patch)

This actually makes forest the easyest farmig grounds in the game since all powerfull monster attacks are ranged, while any player class, even mage can have a good melee, also AOE attacks still work in forest, so you can hit a monster two tiles away, e.g. with holy orb, while monster cannot hit you. You can farm time hounds packs, etc with impunity. However this abuse possibly can be removed due to balance reasons.

Why do some monsters have two health bars? Oh, just thought about it... maybe the second one is mana?

Yep, correct.

Further to the odd pricing of staves...

Noticed that buying a stack of 7 staves was much cheaper to buy them one at a time.

And a question about ranged combat...

Is there any penalty for using ranged combat against adjacent enemies? (Besides the obvious that they can melee you back?)
