* Clear out a safe space near the start of the dungeon where you can rest. Begin to expand that space so you can rest whenever it's needed. Use the Regenerate spell to heal when not in immediate danger.
* To defeat enemies with your Continuous Damage spell, get close to one and open your spellbook using Backspace. Double-click on the spell, and a message should tell you to choose your target. Click on the enemy then. If the spell is resisted, the message "Save vs spell made." will appear. If it is successful, the message "You see a (enemy)." will appear. Once success occurs, run away from the enemy, and try to watch it. The enemy has a chance to break the Continuous Damage once per tick (Daggerfall's internal measure of time), at which point you'll need to recast it; there is no message for when the spell is broken. If the enemy doesn't break the spell, you'll see it either bleeding (for living) or discharging some bone particles (for undead) every few seconds. At level 1, the spell will do 3 damage per round(6 damage total), and at level 2, 5 damage(15 damage total), and so on; the number of rounds will also increase as you gain levels, supposing the enemy doesn't break it through magic resist.
