Advice for the Evil Overlord:
I will explain to my guards that most people have their eyes in the front of their heads and thus while searching for someone it makes little sense to draw a weapon and slowly back down the hallway.
Advice for the Hero:
Likewise, if she doesn't already know, I shall train my True love in the art of armed combat, to the extent that her natural talents allow.
Advice for the Bad Auxiliary Character (Evil Cult Member):
Avoid all cabalistic jewelry over ten pounds in weight--it attracts unwelcome attention from tourists, policemen, and supernatural creatures, and it can be downright dangerous during thunderstorms. Its jingling also tends to warn the hero of your approach.
Advice for the Good Auxiliary Character (Good Guy's Sidekick):
I will exercise caution during the Heroic Struggle. Neither the depth of the Hero's anguish over my death nor the heat of his fury to avenge me will bring me back from the dead.
Further Evil (Advice for the Evil Empress):
If the Hero says he is willing to betray his cause and accept my offer of ruling the world at my side, he will only be believed once that betrayal results in his cause's total destruction, at which point his demonstrable lack of principle will lead to his immediate execution.
