It just doesn't matter
Perhaps the most important thing for everyone to remember is that this is just a game. The lessons of childhood hold: it doesn't really matter what the outcome of the game is, who wins or who loses, but it can matter very much how you play the game. In the reality of the game-world, there will be treachery, deceit and all around misery. But as players we should dedicate ourselves to good sportsmanship, common courtesy and raucous good humor.
