5. Skill Levels:

Skills are leveled up after reaching the next level experience. This game has an exponential leveling system.

6. Bounty and enemy death:

After killing an enemy you will receive coins. The amount of coins is based on each enemy character. Each enemy character can drop a range of coin amounts so the drop will not be the same each time the enemy is killed.

The enemy will respawn in a few seconds based on their respawn timer.

7. Moving to another section of the map:

You could move to another section of the map by moving the character to the edge of the map where there is an option to go to another section.

8. Store, Inventory, and Equipment:

a. Store

Items could be bought from the store by typing in the number of the item you would like to buy. Pressing 9 will exit the store.

b. Inventory

The only inventory item for now is a healing potion which can heal 10 Health. It can be used during or after battles. Using it during battle may cost you a turn in the battle.

c. Equipment

This is not set up yet but the equipment will give additional bonuses to Power and Defense.

9. Hero Death:

Upon hero death, you will lose most of your coins and all your inventory and equipment.

10. Saving the Game:

The game is auto saved when the user exits the game.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
