Is there any chance of enabling at least the arrow keys for movement? Aside from the numpad not being my personal preference for "touch without looking" movement, most laptops do not have a numpad, and using the trackpad is....well, it sucks. I can deal with just about any change to the game that's made for story or gameplay purposes, but the lack of basic keyboard movement control makes things a bit of a pain. What joy it'd be to have step by step movement for small areas or when I'm trying to conserve unexplored map squares without the hassle of the mouse. Or the ability to hit a hotkey and a direction to "use" my glyphs (such as BURNYARAZ, which is used in rapid succession a lot of the time).
You'd be amazed at how the little things can end up being pretty big quality of life improvements to a game.
