		 When you have reach the holy pagoda, you can find a device
		 that let you save the game anywhere you like.

	Healing - Don't waste your spell points casting healing spells when
		  you are near any town. Just save your game in the temple
		  when your hit points is low. After that go out to get
		  killed (shouldn't be difficult). The game will be restored 
		  when you get killed. Upon restoring the game, you will be 
		  given FULL hit points. This is useful when you are low in
		  cash and level. Note that poison is not removed when you
		  restore the game, but there is no need to cast spell to
		  remove it because the enemies will poison you again and
		  again.

	? Option - The following action will be executed randomly:

		1. Stand still doing nothing.
		2. Attack three times.
		3. Restore hit points.
		4. Lose half your hit points.
		5. Execute a special attack with an attack power of 3000.
		6. Half your attack power.
		7. Execute an attack with double your current attack power.
