Note on cursors: If a given cursor is selected it may be changed by clicking on a different action button, by hitting "ESC" or by L-clicking an area where the cursor has no effect (e. g. a non-object or the interface border). Casting spells is canceled by a R-click or "ESC", or finished by a L-click on a creature or area (depending on the type of spell).
The fog-of-war: Characters see a certain distance away from them, using a direct line of sight. This means that they cannot see around a building until they move to the corner and that they cannot see through walls. Depending on the type of terrain that they are crossing, they will be able to see a certain distance - farther in open outdoors terrain (about 1/2 of the main game screen), a little less in mountainous terrain (about 1/3 of the main game screen), and still less in dungeons (about 1/4 of the main game screen).
