Advice for the Evil Overlord:
I will not, under any circumstances, marry a woman I know to be a faithless, conniving, back-stabbing witch, simply because I am absolutely desperate to perpetuate my family line. Of course, we can still date.
Advice for the Starship Captain:
Any crew member who begins to act strangely will be immediately relieved of duty and confined to the sick bay, pending a complete screening to determine if their personality has been subverted.
Advice for the Bad Auxiliary Character (Evil Cult Member):
If the spirit contacted during a seance begins offering financial advice, you're dealing with a con artist, and not a genuine medium.
Advice for the Good Auxiliary Character (Innocent Bystander):
If someone chasing after someone else asks you to catch the latter, feign incomprehension. If you comply, you'll either catch the hero (and thereby play into the villain's hands), or catch the villain (who will waste you or use you as a hostage).
Further Evil (Advice for the Evil Empress):
My Radiant Amulet of Power will not be worn around my neck on a thin gold chain, or on a ring that is two sizes too big for my finger. If a line of sight is required for operation, then a good strong locking watchband will do. If the amulet need not be exposed, as Empress I have far more secure hiding places at my immediate disposal -- and to hell with the glow.
