(no subject)

It'll be interesting to see what kind of reactions I can get out of this. Here's a question about EvilHat's Spirit of the Century: If I have a character with the Death Defiance stunt, would you consider it a valid concession to a combat to tackle my enemy off a cliff (into a river or something) from a GM perspective? Using Death Defiance I could assure that my character survives, while the GM can use his magical mastery powers to assure that his NPC survives as well if he wants him to... plus, he has the option of turning my concession down anyway. Would it make a difference to you if this situation was set up with major spin, tags or declarations?

While I understand that GM fiat is composed of a life all its own, I also know that there are some who would absolutely love a player to pull something like this while others would itch at having a combat end through this kind of fenagling of the rules. Since SotC is such a cooperative game, what really matters is how you the GM would handle it. So, do tell...
