comment Getting entity type object
You can, if they all inherit from the same super type. Let's say the super type is Shape. Shape would have 3 subclasses: Rectangle, Circle and Square. Then you can create an ArrayList<Shape>. You should look into Inheritance and other OOP concepts.

comment How can I make the “Strength” attribute more attractive to Wizard/Caster classes in a RPG game?
I like the approach, although I feel like Constitution may be the appropriate attribute here, instead of Strength. A Wizard with more Constitution would be able to cast more spells before becoming exhausted.

It seems like you are not instantiating your map object and we're starting to get a little off topic here. You should learn to run your game on debug mode to easily fix these kinds of errors. If you're using Eclipse, it's quite easy. A few minutes on Google and you'll master it.

I updated my answer explaining this. You'll keep using the intersects method, but now you'll test it against the List of Rectangles in the TiledMap.

comment How do I detect and handle collisions using a tile property with Slick2D?
In my example, the tile property reader is inside a Class that extends Slick's TiledMap. It's just a matter of where your TiledMap object is.

comment Java Game Interface
I used Slick2D's Shapes (Rectangles, Lines) and Images to create basic UI components, like Panels and Buttons. To detect a click, I simply check if that click happened inside the bounds of the object. Other components like TextBoxes aren't that simple to make, so it may take a while to program everything (I haven't made one). I recommend using one of those libraries, as it will save you a lot of time.
