I just started playing this game this afternoon. Cute..boring in that you have to run home to rest, not just rest in an abandoned house/cave, etc.
Haven't gone on the main quest yet either. Trying to get to Impling lake. Found a treasure map..after being chased by a Lich??? and sold it. Should I have kept it? What do you do with all that equipment you find and don't use..like the leather armour I took off to replace with chainmail. anyone know if it can be sold somewhere? I hate to drop expencive items!
I did notice that food/berries regrow after a while and you can sell them to the potion lady in the forest.
@Dragonlady You can't rest just anywhere because the game doesn't have a random monster generator. That said, there are generally one or two rooms/dungeon that are safe. Try resting in any rooms that have beds. In the early game, you can rest at the fisherman's hut and a few rooms in the Firestone Ruins area.
To sell items-you need to finish the coachman mystery in the area just south of the starting area. This will take some back and forth action. If you've found the implings then you're well on your way. You can only sell items for 1/10th of the original cost. If something costs 150 to buy, you'll get a huge 15 gold when you sell it. Remember Middengard is a corrupt merchant capital.
