You do equip them.

There are weapons/armors from the blacksmith, and can upgrade the weapon/armor several times. You don't actually find weapons/armor in the wild, so it's basically just upgrading the 'level' of your weapon/armor.

You also have 4 equip slots. This is for random items you find like amulets and rings. The slots don't have a type per se, so you basically have 4 slots for different trinkets you find. These are things like +health, +attack, etc...

Compared to other games which are more loot heavy, Pen & Paper's weapon/armor system is pretty simple. I actually like lots of exciting loot, coming from a WoW background, but it works in a simple mobile game.

I'm most of the way through the main quest on Android, and still loving it. Unlocked 4 more classes now. It's a bit of grindy game, but there's always new stuff to see which makes it exciting.

Not that I'm impatient or something, but any info on a possible release date?

Wow - I'm glad TA has picked up on this already. I have been playing the game on Android, and it is a solid, fun title.

The dialogue is fun, the game is very pick-up-and-play-ish, and it's a lot of "just one more time" thing.

So far I haven't found the IAPs to be necessary at all - and as someone said, they aren't even available on Android, it just says "they aren't available yet", but you can get gold through quests.

I hope the game comes out on iOS pretty soon, because you are missing out on a very good game.

Hello guys, here I am again!

Answering some questions first:

Thanks for turning up in the forums Behold, looking forward to the release! Did I see on Twitter that you'll be adding more campaigns or something?
Sure! New campaigns are already being made and a big one should come later november/early december. We'll always keep releasing them, tho, and they will cost only game-money as usual.

Question however: Is this game hooked up with Game Center? Will it have achievements?
Yes, it will! Lots of achievements and different scoreboards will be available.

iOS is coming, guys! Today, maybe tomorrow tops! The game has been approved already! Will be launched ASAP.
