always causes more violence. Don’t pick fights just because someone else might start the fight first! Even if they are the declared enemy.
If you are going out with friends and there’s someone whose face you don’t like, do you pick a fight without checking with your friends if they want to help you out with the consequences of that ugly face calling his friends to help? Sure ugly-face might have come over and started a fight anyway after all he’s an orc, troll, tauren or undead … but he might just not.
If you pick a fight, it is a sure thing that there will be one and the quiet evening with a beer or a glass of wine is gone … so do you ask your friends if they are willing to go for the sure loss of quiet evening or if they are willing to try and let the undead ugly-face live?
So imagine you decided you really didn’t like ugly-face’s face and picked that fight, you trash him and bash him and he looks even uglier afterwards lying in the dirt. Oh and you didn’t ask your friends just because … just minutes later ugly-face is back with a bunch of his friends trying to trash you and your friends back. Your friends are quite pissed off at that wonderful turn of events because hey they are quite peaceful people and maybe a bit sensitive … so do you think it is a good idea to just leave and let your friends deal with ugly face and his friends?
Well I think it is a really really bad idea because your friends might just decide that you have an ugly face.
