Jeff Lait's Vicious Orcs 7DRL rewards attention to detail in play.

  • Your physical ranged attacks have the same limitations as the monsters'. Use this to predict not only safe squares to move to, but ambush points.
  • Monsters won't pass through secret doors. They aren't so inhibited about normal doors. So, don't reveal secret doors until the coast is clear.
  • Cowards would rather be diagonally adjacent to @ than orthogonal to @. That is, faced with this
..@.

  • The kitchen knife's inaccuracy will make your life distressingly short. Upgrade As Soon As Possible.
  • Prioritze what to have repaired. There should be enough money to end with top-end armor, bow, and weapon. [Whether the dungeon has all three of these is another question.] If you don't bleed the money away in combat.
