    I don’t know if you’ve figured it out already, but the conflict resolution system in Smallville is “negotiating with a stick”. The game says that taking the other guy out doesn’t get you what you want, because it doesn’t. Punching or insulting me will never get you the book off of the shelf. All it can do is hurt me. Maybe I’ll give in to avoid more hurt or maybe I won’t. Taking me out also won’t get you what you want. Smallville conflict is just a fist-fight. It doesn’t ever resolve anything. It just hurts people until they give up, or it makes them go away, leaving you free to accomplish whatever it is you wanted to do, if you can do it without them.
