I love this game. It's the first I've spent more than 24 hours playing in a loooong time. My only real suggestion is some form of active quest list. I had a busy day yesterday (In real life) and now I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing in Real Texas. I was thinking about it and the smoothest way I can see this working in the game (aside from a flat out list that takes up inventory space) is an inner-monologue. Maybe if you've got several active quests the inner-monologue is randomized.
What was I doing again?
I should try and find Carringtons(?) teddy
I wonder what this key the wolf gave me unlocks.
This swan dress sure is pretty.
Didn't Xartan give me this emerald key?
That jester is one strange fellow, I should find his next clue.
That ghost was really worried about it's personal appearance, jeez.
As you'll see I've made those possible lines vague enough to hint that the player should go speak to the person that gave them or is related to an item they're carrying or someone they've spoken too.
