-5 Make sure you stay out of real trouble and be careful
-4 Do not be seen with weapons in your hands. This is to avoid trouble with College porters/ officials etc thinking you're going to make a mess, or, worse still, that you're brandishing a real knife/pistol. We are not an official society, so we rely on being discreet about our "buisness". Besides, openly baring a weapon makes you a legitimate target for any players that see it.
-3 Carry college or University id with you, in case you get into trouble...If college authorities ask where you're going, have "I'm going to see if my friend x is in" which, after all, is true...

0 Anybody could be your assassin. Your friend, your supervision partner, your college mum... Be aware of betrayal.
