Inventory

You can check your opponents' inventory before fighting them by pressing I to examine the equipment screen of a given person or monster (you can examine hostile enemies while camouflaged as a bush or a rat) - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

You can check your opponents' inventory before fighting them by pressing I to examine the equipment screen of a given person or monster (you can examine hostile enemies while camouflaged as a bush or a rat). This will help you decide whether the enemy is worth fighting and you'll find out which animals drop what loot.

Once you are over-encumbered, you can drop any item and, while they won't de-spawn, they may be collected by random NPCs, so make sure to leave your things in locations they don't frequent - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

Once you are over-encumbered, you can drop any item and, while they won't de-spawn, they may be collected by random NPCs, so make sure to leave your things in locations they don't frequent.

You can give items to your followers and they will gladly carry them for you regardless of whether they are human or animal. Keep in mind that you can still fast travel even when your follower is over-encumbered. After you've given your follower the items, you can also send them straight back to the camp.

In a number of locations, you'll find buildings in which you can rest - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

In a number of locations, you'll find buildings in which you can rest. You will also find chests there. They share their inventory and cap out at 1000 slots.

Crafting

You can use the portable lab to research and create potions. - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide
You can use the portable lab to research and create potions.
  1. You can craft certain items without knowing the recipe - this gives you the opportunity to experiment or use the recipes listed in this guide.
  2. Before you can use potions, you'll need to research their ingredients and when it comes to cooking and crafting tools, you are free to experiment. To brew a potion, however, you first need to gather enough of a given ingredient to discover it (the number varies per item), after which you can try to combine said component with any previously discovered ingredient.
  3. When crafting potions, remember that the "sentence" needs to make sense - making elixirs requires forming logical sentences. Example: Add 5 Age - aging potion. All Add / Remove potions need to include a number.
  4. Each potion can only have one effect - you can't brew potions that, for example, deal damage and burn the enemy at the same time.
  5. Defensive potions need to be ingested, while offensive potions have to be tossed at enemies.

Skipping time by sleeping

Using the bed allows you to quickly skip time - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

Using the bed allows you to quickly skip time. However, it uses up a lot of food (green bar) - for this reason, the Restless can't use this option.

Resting lets you wait out adverse occurrences in specific locations, such as the Corruption Storm in the Wasteland - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

Resting lets you wait out adverse occurrences in specific locations, such as the Corruption Storm in the Wasteland. You're certain to die during these events, since you'll constantly be taking damage. On the other hand, you should begin exploring as soon as the storm has passed, in order to maximize your time. If you have nothing else left to do, taking a nap is a smart move.

Skipping time by waiting

When you open the map, even as a Restless, you can select the Wait option - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

When you open the map, even as a Restless, you can select the Wait option. Just hold down the F key on the world map. However, this is much slower than resting in a bed.

Fast Travel and map

You can travel freely between the discovered locations on the map - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

You can travel freely between the discovered locations on the map. Just open the map and hold the R key. Rules:

  1. Time continues to pass as you travel.
  2. Your followers travel with you.
  3. Fast Travel is free.
  4. You can't travel when enemies are nearby.
  5. You can use fast travelling to escape storms.
  6. You can send your followers back to the camp (by talking to them) and track their movement during fast travel.
  7. You can travel through areas with active storms without repercussions.
  8. By pressing Esc, you can stop and select a different destination.

You will appear in a different side of a given location depending on which side you enter it from - it's occasionally worth traveling to a different spot and then turning back to appear closer to your destination in the intended area.

Moving around Wasteland/Swamp

By using fast travel, you can quickly move around locations such as Wasteland or Swamp - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

By using fast travel, you can quickly move around locations such as Wasteland or Swamp. Just go to the adjacent location using Fast Travel and return to the one you were earlier. Your character will appear at the passage to this location. This way, after moving to the edge of the map, you can quickly move to the opposite one. Also, when you are fast traveling, the countdown to the storm is not going too fast.

Hooper

Don't litter, or the Hoopers will come - no one says that, but that's what happens in The Serpent Rogue - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

Don't litter, or the Hoopers will come - no one says that, but that's what happens in The Serpent Rogue. Whenever 12 items are lying on the ground, a countdown on the top of the screen will appear indicating when the critters will arrive. They are harmless, but can't be attacked - if you're not quick enough to lower the number of items lying around, then these ghosts will gladly help themselves to them.

Obtaining rare resources and items

If you have an excess of cash, you should consider recruiting some followers as a way of finding interesting and rare resources, items or weapons - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

If you have an excess of cash, you should consider recruiting some followers as a way of finding interesting and rare resources, items or weapons. The most expensive allies are often equipped with items that would be difficult or time-consuming to obtain otherwise. Once you've recruited a follower, you gain access to their inventory and all items that you might have previously scouted on them.

Another way to get a lot of rare items, resources, and money is through Moonchests - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

Another way to get a lot of rare items, resources, and money is through Moonchests. For a more detailed description, check out this guide's Moonchest page.

Followers

Always travel with a follower - they don't have to participate in combat. However, they can carry items for you and you can always send them back to the camp along with the loot.

You can set them up in certain locations to function as mobile chests - simply tame some simple animals like chickens, or recruit the cheapest followers for 1-2 gold pieces, then order them to wait somewhere and have them carry any items you like. Don't leave them in locations where they might die, or in areas with Corruption Storms (Wasteland, Swamp).

Followers created using potions are temporary - they will only exist for a limited time, so use them wisely. This is to balance out how cheap they are to spawn.

Followers can be resurrected - this option isn't always worthwhile considering you can just tame another monster or hire new recruits for cheap.

Assassinations and ghouls

As mentioned earlier in the guide, you have the option to eliminate every non-story NPC you encounter - humans, skeletons and even monsters - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

As mentioned earlier in the guide, you have the option to eliminate every non-story NPC you encounter - humans, skeletons and even monsters. This lets you obtain their items. However, there are some downsides. The main issue is that Ghouls are attracted to locations with at least 5 bodies.

Ghouls are quite strong and can restore their health by eating corpses, so it's a good idea to let them eat to their hearts' content before attacking them - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

Ghouls are quite strong and can restore their health by eating corpses, so it's a good idea to let them eat to their hearts' content before attacking them. They will attack you when you get too near.

Hats

You can put Hats on your head in the Abandoned House, using the chest next to the bed - The Serpent Rogue: Beginners Guide - Basics - The Serpent Rogue Guide

You can put Hats on your head in the Abandoned House, using the chest next to the bed. It is only a cosmetic element that is part of the outfit - it does not affect the gameplay. You can unlock them by obtaining achievements/trophies.
