Hi! First of all I'd like to say ty for all the work you do, Axu is a really nice atmospheric game :)
[EDITED FOR BREVITY]
Strategic world map: imo thered be more fun if initialy the map is covered in black and player needs to actually explore it. Also some marks indicating npc's / mobs / items on the ground would be nice. Like small red dot if there're enemies, yellow for items, green for npc's.
Forging / crafting: some mechanic / blacksmith NPC who can reforge mundane items into those with prefixes. Option to modify items for mutated char'd be funn too. Like bring a breastplate and make holes for demon wings or reforge sword and shield for claws, etc.
