Re: Help on how to learn Lua/Love the best.

I had the same experience, and then tried pressing the e key for a while when it first starts up, and I see some weird stuff show up. It does appear to move the way the controls suggest, but I have no idea what it's supposed to be.

Re: "good vs. evil" or "making RPG characters more interesti

This is cool. I've also thought a lot about more complex motivations and characters. My favorite bad guys are the ones who are actually likable, and whose motivation you can understand.
