While the entire game can be functioned by the mouse and I other keys, I've decided to release my knowledge of the shortcut keys available.

WASD or Arrow keys - dictate direction
Shift   - changes the attack set (skills 1-4) to the other set (5-8)
     - outside of combat shift makes the character run
Space - ends the characters move, works as hitting the continue button after battle
1-8    - uses that character's specified skill. double hit the number to use it. the first time hitting the button is like hovering over the skill
           with the mouse
H       - cause the current character to Hold their action (allowing them to save their move until later in the same turn)

Q - rotate clockwise
E - rotate counterclockwise
Space Bar - end turn
Z - undo move
X - display current mover, enemy health overview
that's all I know for now, I'll update later.

Oh yes, the controls, I was pondering whether to add this or not, as the TRPG2 keyboard hotkeys are rather buggy (not the TRPG3/TSoG ones, though), but it's good to have everything for completness' sake.
Here are a few more:

Q - rotate clockwise
E - rotate counterclockwise
Space Bar - end turn
Z - undo move
X - display current mover, enemy health overview

By pressing SHIFT, the attack display toggles between the two sets of four skills.

Is this necessary seeing as there's a tutorial in-game?

lol yes, because there are often hidden key commands, that are very usefull. Most of these are typically left out because it can be too confusing for new players.

Forget not that a lot of player skip the tutorials and try to learn on-the-go, or simply forget what key was told to be used. So, it's good to have this just in case for those wishing to consult the hotkeys available.

Zhampir, it may be easier to find the information here if you edit your first post with the information that was posted afterwards. Can you please do it?
