Wait... you are correct...
I did not see that every PC attack vs another PC even the retaliations to an attack are all decided by target fiat? So there is never any result except what the target wants - even to a hypothetical stalemate if none have abiliters that cannot be fiated away.
You are correct i misread that.
I withdraw any statements about that rule. They were made in error. my apologies.
not sure what i think about it but its clear i did misunderstand it if my current statement is accurate.
