A question came up in our most recent session of DramaSystem: Brigades: Is it legit to use a bennie to burn a drama token out of an already announced force? If not, is there any easy way to tell when a force has been declared and is therefore immune to bennie burning?
The situation: Lydia rushes a scene intending to force an interrupt in the building romantic tension between Eliana and Nathan. Lydia pays her DT to the scene caller and announces her emotional ask to Nathan as Respect (entreating him for professional devotion to the revolution). Shortly after entering Lydia pushes two drama tokens to Nathan to call for a force. Nathan and Eliana want to block the force but he has 1 DT and she has 2 DT as well as a bennie.
Assumption 1: Eliana can't contribute more than 1 DT to Nathan via the helping rules which means he'd only have maximum 2 DT.
Assumption 2: Eliana can't accept a DT from Nathan and block the force on his behalf.
The only way this could work is if Eliana could use her bennie to burn one of Lydia's DT out of her force. Is this legit?
