I agree with ori, you'd think we'd still fall for that?

It's actually one of my rights, he has to get a recommendation from my equal to fight me.

*Ajax snickered, he's acting oddly cowardly for one who is supposedly the greatest warrior in the Mandalorian Empire.

"What? Afraid of a little challenge? I thought a Mando was taught to never shy away from a fight, but instead go out and seek one himself. I didnt think that would ever change.." Ajax said as he smirked.

"You are right, however, in that i cant challenge you for the title of Mand'alor as i have no supporters, but i can challenge you personally to a duel. And shying away from a chance to kill a Demagolka will be seen as quite cowardly to the people of manda'yaim.." Ajax again smiled evilly.

He sat back in his chair, relishing in the fact that this Mando clearly wanted Ajax dead but would rather kill him with an army then his own sword, and Ajax thought he himself was a coward..*

OOC: Well the people want vengeance that one of their own betrayed them, twice at that. Wouldnt it seem odd that Mand'alor himself would not strike the traitor down in single combat, if he is the great Mand'alor, the people will expect him to do it with ease, correct?

:P

Basically right now, your acting like a coward. Even though i have no right, you shy away from an easy fight. hehe how very mandalorian of you ;)

Son you did not just try to correct me on my knowledge of the Mandalorians.
Why would the leader of the Mandalorian Empire even bother with a worm as low as you?

Ain't nobody got time for that!

Also, yes I can deny the battle even if you won't want the title. If I let you fight me then I'd have to fight every lowlife in the galaxy who thinks he can best me.

Part 1:

A Mandalorian soldier is drinking at a bar, enjoying some downtime after a hard job. An obnoxious drunk (seeming to be unarmed, wearing no armor), obviously cruising for a fight starts talking trash. The Mandalorian ignores him, even when the man calls him a coward (the worst insult a person could give a Mandalorian).

The Mandalorian in this example is being honorable. The drunk presents no actual threat and is in no condition to do any real harm to anyone but himself and his own reputation. If the Mandalorian had risen to the bait of the insult of being a coward, and attacked the drunk, he would have indeed deserved the insult. The Mandalorian is secure, knowing he is more than capable of hurting or killing the drunk if it became absolutely neccessary to do so.

Had the drunk pulled a weapon or attacked the Mandalorian, it would have been not merely honorable, but neccessary to defend himself, dealing with the threat as expediently as possible with as little fuss as possible. Killing the man would not be the first impulse, as there would still be no honor and a risk of staining the aliit's honor with a cowardly act.

Part 2:

Now before you get the idea that Mandalorians might be peaceful carebears because they think killing someone defenseless is cowardly, let's look at who it's a-ok to put out of the galaxy's misery -- namely any foe who is either threatening a Mandalorian, his family, his clan or his people and anyone who actually knows which end of a blaster or blade to hold and happens to have access to one...most especially folks who are really good at that.

The harder the opponent, the more honor is to be gained in defeating that opponent. The more difficult and dangerous targets you take down, the higher that level of respect and honor becomes. But it needs to be noted that the Mandalorian who is careless or takes too many outrageous chances without having to is not looked at as honorable, but merely suicidal or stupid instead. So yet again we see a balancing act going on in honor.

And it gets even more complicated. Because your track record isn't just measured in who you kill or defeat and who you don't. It's also measured in how you do it and how you win or lose. And this is one of those places where a lot of people screw up in roleplaying a decent Mandalorian. Because they forget that "how you play the game" is just as important as the body count.

*The Vigilance cuts comms and heads for an unknown system. All is quiet on board the ship as Ajax finally accepts resignation. He knows its time to settle down some where.*

OOC: This will tie into something much much much later down the line if things work out with well the thing some people are working on ;)

Description

*On board the Vigilance, Ajax sends a transmission to Mand'alor.

"Mand'alor, I am sure you know who I am. I am Aruetii to my former Vode, even a Demagolka to some. But that does not matter, as I, Ajax Thraell, Challenge you for the title of Mand'alor." Ajax said in a matter of fact tone.

"If I fail, at least i died in a way befitting a Mando, I would die by the Beskad of my former Vod, and that is all i need to redeem myself." Ajax said.

He sat there and awaited the reply. He was nervous but he was determined.*

OOC: Figure i outa finish up with Ajax. lol
