Okay, so you want to kill things. It's perfectly natural - don't worry
about it. Just bear in mind this - they're not going to take it lying down!
Firstly, it helps if you have a weapon, so look around for a bit and
scrounge what you can. The 'wear all' command will go through your
inventory and make use of anything it can, so once you've picked a few
things up, type that to prepare yourself.
Can't find anything? The College area contains a few bits and pieces
including a broken croquet mallet - well, it's better than nothing...
Before you go leaping into battle, there's a useful command that you
should get into the habit of using - it's 'consider'. If there's a

you an idea of how many pieces you'll end up in.

To start battle, type 'kill' followed by the name of the monster:
\<20hp 100m 100mv\> kill student

have extra attacks if you possess certain skills. If the battle's going
badly, you can try 'flee'ing or 'recall'ing, but you'll lose experience
points. Fleeing can be made automatic by the use of the 'wimpy' command.
\<20hp 100m 100mv\> wimpy
'Wimpy' will force you to flee if your hit-points level drops below 20% of
So - go get 'em!
