This help section for the game gives you a basic reference if you become confused,
but is not intended to give you a list of all the things you might encounter in
the game. The best suggestion for the novice player is to read this tutorial help
as it appears when you progress through the game. As you encounter things you do
not understand, and are not addressed by the tutorial, refer to this help section
for an explanation. The game is designed to be open-ended, providing a challenge
for both the novice and the advanced dungeoneer. Gradually you will become proficient
enough that your early encounters will seem simple in comparison, but there will
always be another level of play to challenge you and your party. Onward to Glory!
