Because nameless new archers are supposed to be able to hit and make adventurers pass out from a chipped bone from farther away than anyone else can see. ::)

Swimming across oceans is one of my favorite things currently. You gain speed from the skill increases so it's like you put your arms straight down your sides and fire off from the gabbro beach like a torpedo.

I wholeheartedly agree! Where are our boats?

Stopping to cross a river.

Stopping to cross more than one river.

Stopping to cross a river, which is actually a deep cliff, with ice at the bottom.

Elven adventurers not getting free waterskins. Seriously, how can you even get them in adventurer mode?

Stopping to cross a river that turns out to not actually be there!

It only takes a second to show someone how you feel about them. The police call it "indecent exposure", but whatever.

The lag when moving through a town's dungeon/crypts/sewage system.

I doubt there's much that can be done about that though.

You could kill all the people moving around, slowing the game down.

Giant dingos.

Giant fucking dingos.

Also, not being able to know what is in a cave when you enter it. When you fall on a cougar as your rookie adventurer it's generally fine, but when the first cave you search has a cyclops, or even worse a dragon... and that you cannot outspeed it, or can outspeed it by dropping all equipment and therefore getting mauled by a badger.

I don't know, you should be able to identify a dragon's lair quickly due to brimstone smell/large amounts of gold or something, a cyclops's lair due to sheep, an ogre's lair due to large amounts of hoarded food...

Losing may be fun, but not three times in a row.

Spending a half hour looking for and then harassing small wildlife to up my defensive stats, only to get my first quest to a bandit camp and made into a pin-cushion by the crossbowstards.

Also, my undead attacking every-single-living creature they come across, and those every-single-living creatures not caring about me talking to them mid-fight.

Tread lightly for you tread on my streams?

Edit: Four monsters to kill in the capital's sewers (a vampire, two olm men, and a cave fish woman), only two sewer entrances in the town (a third if you count the connection between the keep dungeon and the sewer tunnels, but the dungeon is/was full of (now dead) bat men and kobolds).

After exploring every dry inch of the sewers and even swimming through the submerged parts (savescumming when I drowned :( ) I make my way to the river, but it is down a five z-level cliff!

Damn these sewer quests! Damn them to the third cavern layer! Damn them to the CIRCUS!
