I suggest taking up philanthropy. You know, riding around towns, doing good deeds, building orphanages and stuff.
See, good adventurers HATE seeing evil people doing good things. It boggles their mind. They detect evil on you and then see you giving a new teddy bear to a crying orphan girl on the streets, and they go into conniptions over it.
Just think about it, you're the town's benefactor, they see this, they try to kill you anyway, you get the action and you also get to see them fight the villagers. Then you just run off, leave a trail of clues for them in the forest to find your hidden lair, and then wait for them to come.
