No shops?
« on: March 18, 2011, 10:14:04 pm »

I've been through a dozen towns now (human), and I have yet to see a single shop. I go into every building and check the profession of each person inside, and I have yet to see a shopkeeper/trader. Am I doing something wrong?

They're only present in the larger towns, and appear gold on the travel map.

Might as well toss another question out there: How do you get out of the water if you fell in?

To answer the question in more detail..

If you are stuck in water with no ramps (murky pool, river, etc) and you are not adequate (or is it novice?) in swimming or higher, you will drown.
If you are stuck in water with no ramps (murky pool, river, etc) and you are adequate (or is it novice?) in swimming or higher, you can go next to the land and press ALT+(the direction the land is on), and you may choose to move up. (direction of the land/up it should be).
If you are stuck in water ramps, wether you can swim or not, you can get out. I'm not sure if you have to hold alt or not, but whatever you do, alt will still work.

You need to have Adequate Swimmer to fall into water during combat without drowning. You need to have Novice to climb out without a ramp (with alt+move).

Also, in order to move to a higher z-level via alt-move out of water, the water level in the square in which you are standing should be 7/7.
