This can be irritating as most pathways and doors are located along these directions and you have to either mouse your way through or use the numpad. But neither of them is as comfortable as using the arrow keys. And many laptops / some keyboards don't have numpads.
I've made a tiny little subprogram which maps the Numpad keys 3,7,9 and 1 into the corresponding arrow keys Right, Left, Up and Down. With it the player can move just as in the later Avernum games from BoA onwards.
