It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates:
A small German man storms into a local bar and demands "Gimme a double of the strongest whiskey you got! I'm so pissed I can't even see straight!"
The bartender, noticing that the little man is a bit the worse for wear, pours him a double of Southern Comfort.
The German man swills down the drink and says "Gimme another one!".
The bartender pours the drink, but says "Now, before I give you this, why don't you let off a little steam and tell me why you're so upset?"
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.
