The lawful evil perspective is generally thought to be the most long-term playable within a group of similarly aligned characters. Such a group will generally recognize that the attainment of power is of paramount importance, and will work together, if not as a team, to gain power.
Some phrases to describe the lawful evil perspective:
- Do unto others as they have done to you. Vengeance as a rule.
- If you fear it, seek to dominate it. Unmake your barriers.
- If you hate it, seek to torment it. Sharpen your skills.
Your opposition teaches you most about your weaknesses. Learn from your enemies.
