Your inventory is a list of all items you are currently carrying. To view your inventory while playing online, press 'i'. When playing offline, your inventory will be visible in the bottom right portion of the screen.
You can carry at most 52 items at a time, though many items (food, scrolls, potions, and ammo) can be stacked, conserving space. Items you have no use for when actually in combat should often be left behind or stored in a stash, freeing up space for future loot.
Common consumable items often always carried, include:
- Potions of heal wounds, curing, might, brilliance, berserk rage, magic, invisibility
- Scrolls of teleportation, blinking, fog
- Bread rations, meat rations, or honeycombs.
Prior to 0.15, items had individual weights, and each character had a maximum carrying capacity determined by their size and strength stat. Also, certain items in your inventory could be destroyed, making it unwise to carry more of an item around than you really need.
