Always look for a peaceful solution to conflict before clashing with others – the path forward will be unstable if bought violence.
Be a role-model to which all others should aspire; We must all be responsible for our actions and the consitions they create.
Distrust is the root of pain; it is better to be betrayed by a friend that suspect them.
Experience and wisdom are to be shared with the community and built upon to make greater opportunities for all.
Friendship is its own reward; it is the fulcrum upon which we are inspired to new heights.
Lies invalidate effort and progress; a part of the world dies when a lie is told and the future is poorer for it.
Never take delight in the death or torture of others – you only invite such upon yourself when you do so.
The ends do not justify the means; principle is virtue and is hollow if acheiving it violates its nature – compromise is the path of weakness.
There is a duty to the larger ideal of community – gains and stability must be for the group’s good, not the individual.
[Total can never be higher than CHA rating]
