Normal Mode
Normal Mode lets you level faster, inifinte deaths allowed.
By playing this mode, you can use this version of the game to
develop tactics and a basic understanding of the hardcore mode.

Hardmode Mode doesn't allow you to continue your journey-
if you die along the way, you'll have to start over from square 1.
If your unfamiliar with the SAOT concept its strongly recommended to try Normal first.
