QFT. There is precisely zero reason - ever - to play a character that's disruptive (and for the record, evil does not equal disruptive and never has to). I have absolutely no tolerance for showboats and disruptive players. RPGs are a communal exercise - if you can't figure out how to play nicely with others, you probably shouldn't play.
In a long running Birthright game the Evil PC ended up being the one with contacts to everybody
. Overall his people had a high standard of living, enriching the community and allowing him to make long range plans for conquest.... A tyrant, but one who practiced enlightened self interest.
Even the paladin PC had contracts with him.
