I was able to consume bread for a small healing but not rest with it. I have done exactly zero with mage skills other then pay to learn them. So far, arrows, slashing weapons, and potions have been sufficient despite my DK's huge thirst for healing potions. But yes, I rely on rest (and pyramids) very much less then I did with DD and OS.
I guess I can do this since I started the thread (go off subject): I've run into a problem. After telling the imp hero that his wife needed him, I lost control of the game, ie, the three comments were made (last being hee,hee!) but, after that, just the group of imps milling about with no pictures top right and no ability to move, open inventory, etc. Basically, the movie kept running and never returned control to me. I waited a long time to no avail, quit, tried again some three times with the same result. Is this a known bug?
