My biggest problem is that I can't seem to leave the first town. I *think* that it told me to hit < or > the first time I started the game, but neither works. So the game is kinda slow stuck in the first area...

You have to have a full stomach before you can travel anywhere by pressing "<".

Oh. Correct me if I'm crazy, but couldn't you just *start* with a full stomach upon character creation?

Wow, brilliant! Done in SVN (but I left some room in the starting stomach for quaffing potions, etc.).

The whole point of not starting with a full stomach is that you learn straight away that you have to be full in order to travel.

I'm going to roll this back... sorry guys.

Why not just give an error message when you try to leave town without a full stomach?

"You can't leave yet, n00b, eat something!"

You mean like 'You need a full stomach for the road ahead.'

Or is that too subtle?

Well you might be more explicit in the first town.

I'm not really sure I understand why it's forced, tho. You could just prompt them if they're sure they want to leave without a full stomach.

This is another good options. That will teach them, newbies! But seriously, this is better than current messages. Give them a warning and if they disregard it, let them appear on the next wilderness location paralized from starvation. This is much more colorful experience than hitting '<' and seeing no reaction. It's even sensible from a role-playing perspective. BTW, the current travel food consumption is so toned-down that most newbies will not even notice before Rivendell, I guess.
