Advice for the Evil Overlord:
If my chief engineer displeases me, he will be shot, not imprisoned in the dungeon or beyond the traps he helped design.
Advice for the Hero:
If any of my associates mysteriously disappears, and then returns behaving in an uncharacteristic manner, I will immediately presume that their loyalty has been compromised by the Evil Overlord.
Advice for the Bad Auxiliary Character (Evil Henchman):
Avoid getting sent to rough up the Hero. Ransacking hotel rooms is probably safe, but going 'round to beat up the good guys is a sure ticket to the bottom of the Thames. Remember, however, that all Heroes get roughed up at least once, so if this has never happened to the Hero, go for it!
Advice for the Good Auxiliary Character (Good Guy's Sidekick):
If the hero tells me to stay put while he goes on ahead, I will do so instead of sneaking around and getting captured.
Further Evil (Advice for the Evil Empress):
I will not try to turn a son (even mine) against his father, no matter how estranged they are. Blood relatives can be annoyingly sentimental.
