The end of last week I was traveling but today I've progressed a little with the "How to Make an RPG book". I've finished all the menu modes, so tomorrow I'll return to writing text again which will be good!
Here's the status menu. The textbox for the commands isn't written in a nice way at the moment but it will be a long while before I actually reach this menu in the book and I'll rewrite it then.
(As well as the status menu, I also finished off the equip menu and rewrote a lot of the menu code to make it shorter and consistent.)
