D&D doesn't have a "rest" mechanic - that's more of a computer implementation thing.

I don't remember the IWD rest mechanic, how does that work again? I assume it's like BG - where you can rest at most areas and instantly heal?

I do believe that was why they tried to improve that aspect for Dragon Age.

I can't say it bothers me all that much. When you have quick save - taking away rest becomes a matter of work more than challenge.

Especially in a hack and slash game like IWD - which is CLEARLY about killing hordes of enemies and getting loot as well as upgrading your character. I don't think a restrictive rest mechanic would mesh well with that kind of gameplay.
