Keyboard basic keymap image

I made this up for a friend I'm introducing to the game, and if it's of any use to you here, feel free to use it.

If you want the Photoshop (CS3) psd file to make changes or corrections, just let me know.

Is that a US keyboard layout?

It's rather different from my UK one - the basic QWERTY letters are the same places, but a lot of the symbols are in different places.

Yes, that's a bog-standard US Windoze keyboard. Infuriatingly, it has no pound sign (as in pound sterling, not hash).

I play with a Dvorak keyset, which puts ' , . in the spots where Q, W, and E are -- great for access to hotkeys. I typically hotkey ', ", !, @, #, $, Q, F, B, and X, in games where I need lots of hotkeys. These are always easily accessible with my left hand alone, while my right rests on the numeric keypad for movement. F is always hotkeyed to "light room"; if I need to refill my lantern or torch then I can escape the hotkey using \ first. B always goes to "identify item" using whatever means are appropriate. ! is typically my "target closest monster and use ranged attack" hotkey (yes, I know about 'h'; I've been using ! longer than 'h' was around). ' and " are detection effects.

There's tons of room for hotkeys without resorting to the difficult-to-access function keys. It's great.

Very nice. Every variant should have one.

perhaps add "run until disturbed" to the shift keys? - very useful key

And "attack without moving" to the control keys.

And "tunnel" for ctrl too. Or is ctrl basically "alter move" (disarm, open, attack without moving, tunnel)?
