Advice for the Evil Overlord:
As an equal-opportunity employer, I will have several hearing-impaired body-guards. That way if I wish to speak confidentially with someone, I'll just turn my back so the guards can't read my lips instead of sending all of them out of the room.
Advice for the Starship Captain:
I will put surge suppressors in the circuitry of my ship, so that a shot striking some distant portion does not cause a control panel on the bridge to explode.
Advice for the Bad Auxiliary Character (Evil Genius):
My glass flask holders, test tube racks, and bunsen-burner-heated apparati will be anchored to the floor or wall, not balanced precariously on a wobbly table.
Advice for the Good Auxiliary Character (Good Guy's Sidekick):
I will not goad bad guys with statements like "over my dead body."
Further Evil (Advice for the Evil Empress):
If I married into the title of Evil Empress, I will let my Overlord take the flak for the Empire's evil actions and ingratiate myself to the people with my kindness.
