So, it seems that it has a decent chance of happening

- to NPC´s
- with a mastery of difference in simple contests
- if the Narrator uses a certain strategy in an EC

So, not, IMO, very likely to be common, empirically.*

As Rory is hot on the intentions within the rules...was that the intent? (Without using any 70's scifi language if you please)


*Getting the mastery difference due to finding the weak spot (low ability) comes to mind too, but I suspect that is, again, less common empirically than it could be.
