Just release build 26 today which now includes some major changes to how character data is processed. This update opens the RPG part of the game to a whole new capability where items can add stats to the player and be removed fairly easily.
Also in today's update it now includes the ability to open a configuration screen and select where the player data is stored and where to load the game data. If you play and use the cloud data source your character will be ranked on the score boards. Hopefully the score board will be add so players can track their progress.
The player and first level equipment has also been de-buffed because I found it was to easy to beat up on those poor beggars and slaves. Let us know how this changes your game play.
