Well, I guess that explains how they have so much gold down there.

If I have to click on login once more I'll stop rating... Goddammit!

How do classes other than tourists and healers get in (without any fighting experience)?

The guidebook says:

"In the morning you awake, collect your belongings, and set off for the dungeon. After several days of uneventful travel, you see the ancient ruins that mark the entrance to the Mazes of Menace. It is late at night, so you make camp at the entrance and spend the night sleeping under the open skies. In the morning, you gather your gear, eat what may be your last meal outside, and enter the dungeon..."

Presumably, every hero has food before starting, but most classes don't think to pack more than they need to get to the dungeon. Likewise, if there are trolls standing guard at the dungeon and demanding toll, I'm sure every class comes packing some gold, but what they have is wiped out by entering the dungeon.

Makes more sense than the pet shop, anyway. :P
