Characters have a level assigned, either Beginner, Novice, Expert, or Difficult. These levels are implemented through modifiers to specified tables in the rules. Characters also have a Class and a Race (the normal races plus "Smart Monster"). Characters have two Attributes (Brains and Brawns) and Hit Points. Characters of a magic-using Class may select Spells or Prayers. Characters may then equip, though nearly every item of available equipment deals exclusively with dungeon adventuring or combat. Similarly, almost every Spell and Prayer is focused on dungeon adventuring or combat.
