Example: Katrina and Yurgen, old enemies with a long history, spot each other in the crowd. Yurgen makes a nasty gesture at Katrina, who has Bad Temper at level 4 and a Will of 6. Because of the pair’s ongoing enmity and the fact that the gesture was directed at Katrina, the GM assigns 3 penalty levels to Katrina’s Bad Temper. Katrina rolls 6 dice for Will and achieves just 2 Ss. Since she needed 7 Ss, she missed by 5 Ss. Katrina’s response to Yurgen’s provocation is one of aggressive physical confrontation. In this case, Katrina responds to Yurgen’s gesture by rushing him, grabbing him around the waist, and trying to throw him to the floor. Yurget responds in kind. This will not end well for someone…
