* Learn the lay of the land. If you can remember what hideous creature guards an area, or which dangerous trap waits where, you will be able to anticipate your next move and strategically plot your course. This is very important. There is no luck in this quest. You must be skillful to succeed. Do not waste powerful weapons. If you can get by with your fists, do it. You will need your weapons for the strongest creatures.
* Don't fall too far. You can survive short falls, but a long fall means certain death.
* Some situations cannot be survived. Learn where they are and avoid them. Other situations may seem impossible, but they are not. Only experience will tell you which is which.
