Adventuring can be a fun and profitable lifestyle choice. And who could miss the appeal? Slaying evil monsters, rescuing fair damsels in distress, and looting fortunes and magical items. However, before you head out the door to begin a career in fighting evil, there are a few things you'll need to keep in mind:
Rule #1: Choose Your Weapon
Before you start battling against the unholy undead or bizarre dungeon dwelling creatures, you must first choose a weapon. Perhaps a weapon that suits your own personal style? If you are small and weak, perhaps it would be better to focus on weapons that are also small and weak, like you. Or if you're big and strong, a large, powerful, weapon might be just the thing for you. There are a plethora to pick from, but it is vitally important that you make the right choice.
Rule #2: Always Be Careful
When you begin adventuring, most of that adventuring will be done in dungeons. Dungeons are the natural environment for some of the most vile and putrid creatures in need of a good smiting, and (for some reason) there seems to be no shortage of dungeons to delve in. Keep in mind, however, that dungeons are extraordinarily dangerous places. They have been designed specifically to kill you in the most unusual and horrifying ways possible.
As a rule, when dungeon delving, never trust anything you see.
Rule #3: Always Be Prepared
Like the boy scouts, it always helps to be prepared. Of course, a single adventurer can't be prepared for every situation. As such, it works to your advantage to form an adventuring party of like-minded individuals, preferably individuals who can all fill a certain niche. As an example, in many dungeons you will encounter what are called 'locks'. These pesky things, believed to be some sort of dungeon-based growth that occurs on wooden objects like doors and chests, will prove to make your adventures difficult if you do not have someone with you who can take care of them.
