So, you want to avoid getting hacked to bits by the monsters? Well,
here's a quick guide on how to beef up your character. Firstly, you
should really know how to check your statistics - this is done by using
the 'score' command.
\<20hp 100m 100mv\> score
This will display a large list of bits and pieces - at the moment you
should be interested in the five major statistics: strength,
intelligence, wisdom, dexterity and constitution. You can raise these by
visiting the Tutor or Professor in the College area and using the 'train'
\<20hp 100m 100mv\> train wis
It's best to train wis and con first, because then when you improve a
level, you get more benefits.
Training uses up part of your 'practice' allowance - again, this is shown
in the 'score' list.
Once you're happy with those statistics, you can use the remaining
'practice' allowances to learn skills such as spells, or specialised
fighting attacks. Typing 'practice' on its own allows you to see the
skills that you are able to learn, and following 'practice' with the name
of a skill will actually practice it - however, you must be with the Tutor
or Professor in the College area in order to do this.

Each time you practise a skill, you become better at it, up to a maximum
dependent on your level, class, and race.
