If there is a rival in the game, I hope for someone with a Saemon Havarian feel. Someone who goes along with your plans as long as it fits him/her self. But at the same time, someone who uses you(Saemon dumping the piece of the sword to you, knowing who are after it), and when trouble arises, s/he better his/her own position at the players expense. Someone who you could thank for the thing s/he is willing to do for you, or who you could also curse after a "backstab".

So someone who the player can side with easily, but also who can earn the hatred of the player just as easily.

Idea of having a competitive only rival is a cool idea and I haven't seen it before. It would make a great addition to the game, but I don't want only that kind of rivalry. I'm sure that any evil or possibly even neutral chaotic rival would not have a second thought about fighting you if he had the advantage. I think that there is a place for both in the world, as well as several different types of rivals in between. And speaking of which, judging from some of the recent updates it looks like there will be quite a bit of rival adventurers

Yes, since there will be several rival adventuring parties, I think PE will be able to accomodate different flavors of rivals. This should make for a fun time. However, there should be some build up and the rivals should cross swords with the PC a few times. I would hate if they just make an appearance ONCE and lose/die and that's the last we ever see of them.
