Tips for survival in the dungeon:
-------------------------------------------------------------

To gain experience and gold more quickly, look for challenges
offered by npcs in the overworld. Satisfy their requests by
meeting the objective in the indicated dungenlevel. Retrieve
your reward by returning to the questgiver. Depending on the
gameplay variant (Short, Medium or Long) teleporters will be
available at certain levels (for example at every forth level
in the short gameplay variant). The teleporter will transport
you back to the overworld, where items can be stocked up for
further progression through the dungeon. Be sure to prepare
yourself well when you descend into the dungeon. Take enough
ammo and potions to survive to get to the next teleporter.
