Hi.
Is it a bug - I don't really know, but I decided to write it.
In previous DRODs you could play new game in your own hold, solve several levels and edit the room in which you are. Then, you could continue from the place you were before editing hold and you could see all the changes. But, in RPG, you can't edit rooms, where you were. For example, you were in Second Level: Twice North, Once West, you hit the ESC button, edited this room and come back to play. But you don't see any changes :( You have to start new game :?
PS I don't know how it works with objects, but it works with characters, health potions, power and shield gems.
Can you fix it? Is it possible?

I think due to "permanency" rule it is pretty impossible (unless you use a save before visiting this room). What I mean by permanency rule is that everything is permanent - killed monster don't reapper on reenter, built objects stay where they were built, generated entities stay were they were generated, collected items are collected forever, opened doors stay open and vice versa, and so on and so on. So that every time you save a game, in the save the state of EVERY visited level is kept in order to make the Permanency rule work.
I think it is impossible to make.

Though for final verdict you ought to wait for someone more competent to reply.

...another way of saying, "that's because in DROD, rooms are the basic units of play. In DROD RPG, entire holds are the basic unit of play."

Yes, this is the intended behavior. It's possible this may change once full playthrough verification support has been added to saved games, but we may find out it's still not feasible.
