Action Points or APs are the terms of which you travel from tavern to given location selected from the drop down menu. Standard characters recieve 25 of these a day, they can be built up by waiting. you can have a total of 250 action points on normal occasions. To move from the Dragon tavern to any given location costs a convenient 1 action point, exploring is 1 action point per move/encounter/find. Moving back to the tavern to heal or sell loot also only costs 1 action point unless your character has an Amulet of Recall in which case the return is free. You can lose APs by falling into time wasting traps (dubbed AP Drain traps), or when at the tavern Drinks Menu when you pass out from drinking too much. Moving to and from sublocations within the same main location is free.
