Now I would be pleased to hear which of the following are cowards:
A sorcerer who summons up 20 demons, jumps his victim and lets the demons do most of the dirty work ?
A mage who sits in Rituals with his dragon and summons in his victims or taunts them with abuse until they act out of frustration then dazzles them till they die.
A thief who wiats in abuse, yanks his victims to a volley of poisons etc ?
The main profession in Avalon by their fighting nature content to challenge and let the fight come to them is the Warrior type profession.
The main point is just because you lost to a foe they are not necessarily a coward - Jharrik and whoever wants to may jump me anytime they like.
