Agreed. The OP could always create a new version where Lord British resurrects your character every time that he/she/it dies on level 1.

Maybe L1 could be on 'perma-tutorial-mode', with extra help / prompts / explanations of what's going on?

By examining the items in the stores with the 'l'ook command; flasks are specifically described as doing good damage when thrown.

Only if you can turn it off... that could get annoying for veteran players!

I actually quite like this idea. Agreed that this could be annoying for veterans, so would it be possible to force a down staircase next to the one you use to arrive in dl1 so you could carry on your merry way if you so desire?

I've been killed many times in town before even setting foot in the dungeon. Which is especially annoying after buying all my gear...

Perhaps we should not allow anyone in town to hurt you. Maybe they should just give you words of encouragement and praise.

I think they should heckle you, the harshness of which becomes less as you gain levels. By level 40 or so they start bowing.

By level 40 all of the townsfolk are futilely trying to run away, assuming they even wake up before the almighty adventurer, irritated at his running being disturbed, hits the "target nearest creature and destroy" keymap.
