Advice for the Evil Overlord:
If I'm sitting in my camp, hear a twig snap, start to investigate, then encounter a small woodland creature, I will send out some scouts anyway just to be on the safe side. (If they disappear into the foliage, I will not send out another patrol; I will break out the napalm.)
Advice for the Hero:
High-sounding directives notwithstanding, I will never value culture above sentient life.
Advice for the Bad Auxiliary Character (Evil Overlord's Wicked but Beautiful Daughter):
Don't wear dresses with high, fan-like collars. Stick with close-fitting, simple little numbers that let you turn your head to see behind you. If for some reason you have to wear a dress with a high collar, there's an arcane device called a "mirror" that will help you watch your back.
Advice for the Good Auxiliary Character (Innocent Bystander):
Never take on someone that has just beaten the Hero, unless it is to distract him just before the Hero delivers the killing blow.
Further Evil (Advice for the Evil Empress):
I will not fret over the comparative beauty of the Hero's True Love or any Beautiful Yet Innocent kinfolk. They may be attractive enough, as peasant wenches or quivering maidens go; but I am The Evil Empress, and there is no comparison.
