Evil Overlords are a breed apart. They dress in somber black and have an oppressive air about them at all times. People try to imitate them attempting to bring a sense of preternatural dread to their otherwise unimposing selves. How many dark robed psychopaths do we need? How many shredded cloak wearing faceless whatevers are necessary? Dare to be different, how confused would the hapless Hero be if confronted with brightly clad legions of terror?
We don’t want to take this to far of course, you should dress the part. However, your troops shouldn’t always follow suit. Ill give you a few examples. White Clad Stormtroopers in a jungle campaign is stupid, things might have gone differently on Endor if they had Camo armor. Likewise, bright red coats and walking in straight lines is idiotic. You want to cause confusion, not a self-imposed massacre of your own forces. Everything in moderation is the point here. Utilize all the tools at your disposal.
Don’t just run out and deck yourself out in a “Ming” like outfit though, remember the point is to be unique, be one of a kind, be an Evil Overlord that other less well gifted people will mimic. Let them be the posers, the pretenders and unimaginative and you be a trend setter. ALL HAIL MING!
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
