When do I level up and get some new abilities?
School or gym, generally. Or you can just train skills on your own, if you are so inclined. The skill tree is truly enormous, go nuts.
Where are the towns with shops full of magic weapons and healing potions?
As for healing potions, your local friendly pharmacist has plenty of very powerful potions and remedies if you want them. If you need something even stronger, hospitals can cure almost
everything. It takes a lot of grinding, but if you want your character to be able to make
potions, or even invent new ones, you can do that too.
As for magic weapons... if you are in the U.S., you can get fairly powerful ones relatively easily. If you are in Europe or in another zone with stricter weapon rules, it's trickier, but you can probably get the relevant permissions if you really want to. But beware, playing Real Life
as if it were a First-Person Shooter
will get you killed very, very quickly.
And of course, if you go for a military-oriented profession and complete enough quests you can eventually gain access to truly
devastating weaponry, if you care to.
How do I get instant money just for killing things?
You kill people and take their money. But beware, that'll get a lot of other P Cs
to go after you.
How do I get everyone to do nothing while I'm away?
You don't. It's a MMORPG, after all...
And where do I save my game so I can restart when I die?
You don't. Real Life
is as Nintendo Hard
as it gets.
