Or, maybe you only use a melee weapon... or something like that. Virtually every game I play I have some sort of rules that I make for myself. I really dont have a reason for it, I just do it.

It's pretty standard to not buy items from merchants, they are usually crappy and overpriced... merchants in ES series are mostly for selling trash loots
However for well designed games like Age of Decadence you actually need to buy from merchants to be able to survive because that game is brutal.
I have done something quite common too, that is to always min max my stats :)) e. g. extremely intelligent mage but physically frail, glass cannon type. Other standard stuffs include killing NPCs for exp as long as I don't need them anymore, stealing items for gold etc. oh and Always collect all the books, journals I could find
