Ok, so no one was speaking about random events ... but, well here's one. Running around in the overworld when suddenly, I get this message: Try to hit a nearby target dummy with "Searing Ray" by pressing the '1' key. It is a combat spell, so your weapon will need to be drawn. You can draw and sheathe your weapon using the 'Z' key. Also, that showed up on screen. Rather annoying - particularly since I've been using Searing Ray for nearly two years with this character. I did not even touch my keyboard when it appeared.
