Woah this sucker is a big thread. I figured it was months old by the size
You guys got a storyline? I remember playing text RPGs/Adventures on my old computer from the 80s, surprisingly quite fun. Be interesting to see what you guys come up with.
as others have suggested you should use classes a lot. Easy to program, easy to debug, will definitely shrink your coding and allow you to focus on actually programming the game, easy to make modifications later, easy for working on projects in groups, easy to keep track of stuff like monsters. Makes it easy to create them, store info regarding each one, and discard them when they are dead.. etc..
I've written a game before and trying to do it without classes is a nightmare, but Good Luck if you decide to go that route anyways.
