@Niklas, definitely, I can say with confidence there will be some internal conflict encounters now and you will get the credit for them, it was a fantastic idea
As for those rogue ascii signs, for the ascii free version of the game that shouldn't happen, I've found a fixed them, the bug I found occured 6 times, all of them have been fixed now so in the new update coming soon this wont happen, you will get credit for finding them too, but if you find anymore let me know!
At the moment quests are done by knights who are trying to prove themselves to get into your knightly order, this occurs in the throne room through encounters but will be implemented in other ways as well soon
I definitely plan for feasts and things in the future and as for exploration don't worry, filling empty exploration places is the focus of the 0.7.0.1 update which is nearing completion
@Defender, you get some extra relation if you return him to the kingdom but I agree, there should be similarly the chance of a penalty if you take them, I'll note this down
@Firefly82, as Niklas says it can be bought on itch and steam, I've heard steam is terrible for visually impared people so itch is apparently the place to go, the 0.6.8.7 is just the last free version
