“A conflict scene needs active opponents on at least two sides. Each side must something. They have to have an immediate goal- something they want to fight for, convince you of or escape from, for example. If one side simply wants to defend against the other side’s goal and has no goal of its won, there’s no conflict here. You can resolve those situations with versus tests.”[/i]
So, let’s say there are a bandit and a guard.
If the bandit wants to rob the stuff(His goal is obviously “rob the stuff”) and initiates a conflict, Does the guard have to pick something active goal(i.e “Capture the bandit”) instead of just “protect the stuff”?
