13.2 PREPARATION FOR COMBAT

One of the most important parts of combat is being properly prepared for it.
Without some certain basic equipment, you have no hope of succeeding against
any competent opponent.

This document will only cover equipment and defences that are not
class-specific. Further, though a few offensive aspects of combat will be
covered, generally-speaking, your primary offensive abilities are
class-specific and are covered in the help files for the skills associated
with that class.

A short list of basic equipment that you'll need follows. It isn't complete,
but it is a start.

armour              : what kind to get will depend on your class.
a weapon            : useful for inflicting venoms on people, if you have the
                      envenom ability in the Weaponry skill, and, of course,
                      for dealing out damage.
