I just now recalled--inspired by this article's description of the strangeness of the backpack--that when you dig through the floor of a shop the shopkeeper will sometimes manage to "grab your backpack" as you fall; and you lose most of your inventory. But--I haven't confirmed this--you don't lose the backpack, do you? You can still pick up more items, and I assume if you dig through another shop floor you will again have your backpack "grabbed".

Looking at the source, I can't see any permanent effects of having your backpack grabbed other than losing your items. I'm pretty sure the backpack is one of those items that only exists in flavour text. -- Killian 15:42, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Sumplementary items

We have gold and loadstone, but, most recently, i picked an "unlabeled scroll" in a shop which went to the # slot..... ?Newtkiller 06:38, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Next page of inventory

It would be helpful to list how to get to the second page of your inventory. Its not always apparent to new players how to do this and I had to search online for a long time before I found the answer of using space to get to the next page.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Technically, that's not specific to the inventory, but to all menus. See menu controls. If you do see a good way to put this into the article, however, feel free to add it. --Bcode (talk) 21:53, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
