It's not easy being an evil overlord. You watch your rivals, watch your spies, watch out for supremely powerful magic objects, keep an eye on your so-called allies - and then lose it all because you forgot to watch the trees.

    When you tell your fellow soldiers a weak spot of the enemy, tell them softly in a way that only the person standing next to you can understand it.

      When you reappear from the dead, first let your friends attack you and talk as if you were the enemy and then reveal yourself.

          Saruman anticipated from the very beginning that King Theoden would hide in Helm's Deep, otherwise he wouldn't have build a shit load of those ladders.

            When the enemy is standing right before you and you can shoot them with your arrows, just keep standing there until one man accidentally fires an arrow and they all attack.

                Saruman was the wisest of the council and talked with Ents a lot when he was still "good", yet he wasn't aware of the fact that Ents indeed can become very pissed when you chop down trees.

                    When you're becoming old and weak, Saruman has probably put a spell on you.

                        When you can shoot an arrow extremely accurately from a very long range and a guy with a torch in his hand is about to set off a bomb, shoot at his armor-plated body instead of shooting his hand off.

                          It's wise to make a dark, depressing speech as a king, when you know you probably die.

                                  Wormtongue's judgment about where the king will hide, is always right.

                                    Saruman builds an army of ten thousand Uruks but he doesn't tell his loyal advisor about it.

                                      When you only have 300 men against 10,000, never call for aid, even when you know that there's a small chance they will help you.

                                          When you have the Ring, go stand on top of a structure and let it almost get taken by one of the Nazgul.

                                            When a lot of enemies come through the destroyed remains of a wall,they still have a long way to walk before they get to you and you still have arrows a plenty, it's smart to not use the arrows, instead draw your sword and attack them head-on, especially when you're in great minority.

                                              It's smart to stay in the caves for a long time and try to leave through the mountains at the very last minute, instead of just leaving way before the battle begins in case the battle goes ill.

                                                Saruman was a good guy who wasn't keen to kill villagers and destroy property at all; if he wanted to kill villagers and destroy property he could've just gone to the (military) abandoned cities and villages of Rohan before going to Helm's Deep.
