And by the way, I've picked up potions whose uses I can't identify. I've drunk both bloodlust and vitality potions (picked up as inventory items) and tried to pay special attention to my speed and power in combat, but can't tell an iota of difference from normal performance. Does anyone know what these are supposed to do?

Further experiments show that sometimes--not always--the bloodlust potion (aside from giving you health) forces you to fire your current weapon whether you want to or not until the bloodlust timer runs out.

Still can't figure out what Vitality does. And no, figuring out stuff like this is not part of the game's fun, or at least logically it shouldn't be. In this campaign you already had a bunch of training prior to the beginning, so you should know what all the potions do already. Indeed, in the review here at UnrealSP one of the reviewers ignored these potions precisely because there was no documentation on them. So I'm not alone in being annoyed at this.

But don't get me wrong, I'm very much enjoying this late find in the twilight of Unreal 1's career. Lots of fun to be a kick-butt Nali!

It's been a while since I played NC but I seem to remember that Bloodlust was a potion that increased the damage dealt to enemies and Vitality increased your resistance to damage.
Two of my favorite spells were Magical Lake and Whirlwind. I took great pleasure ntroducing Skaarj to the man-eating squid in the Magical Lake spell. Have you got the Nali Rabbit yet? He was a real hoot.
