In which Darth Vader is not a pussy

Read about why Darth Vader was a capable manager.

The title of this post?  Came from my evil warlord-wizard, Kovid, who prudently waited until the credits rolled on Lord of the Rings  before muttering, "Sauron is a pussy."  The lack of actual thought inside that empty bucket of armor was painfully obvious even across dimensions.

Scary villains are scary, sure.  But capable  villains will make your heroes work  for their win ... and maybe rip out a few hearts or other body parts along the way.
