did come about as part of some sort of system justification, in other words, as the result of some player action/decision rather than an event that was just gonna happen. Even if the justifiication is some sort of penalty or consequence of a contest and was, in effect, hand waved by the narrator. What I am suggesting is that the players should be coming up with stuff to get results like this.

Mike' s following post explains better - in other words, I agree.
