not long after entering the dungeon i encounter my first monster - a hobgoblin! these creatures are dangerous to beginning characters - this one could probably knock out my hp in a couple of hits. i'm not going to let it get near me: instead i'm going to retreat, firing arrows as it chases me. for convenience the ' key lets me swap between the weapons labelled "a" and "b" - by default, my knife and bow. i want my bow out now.



pressing the f key lets me fire missile weapons - in this case my arrows. when asked to aim, i can just press the down key, or i could use the * key to target a particular space (when a monster isn't lined up in a neat compass direction). the + and - keys also cycle between targets.



several arrows and several feet of hallway later, the hobgoblin is slain. the ? icon on that arrow indicates that there's another object underneath it - in this case the hobgoblin's corpse. now that the monster's dead, i retrieve the arrows i fired at it: they're a scarce resource.
