    You get a beat for voluntarily accepting a dramatic failure. You don't get a beat just for dramatically failing. If, for example, a penalty reduces your dice pool to a chance die, and you roll a 1 and suffer dramatic failure, you don't get a beat for that.

    Same deal here: no beat. The voluntary beat is offering a carrot. In this scenario, you're just getting hit with a stick.

  • A roll to affect another character should be resisted if its effect is primarily limited by the number of successes rolled.
    It can also be resisted if its effect isn't too oppressive and a subject successfully targeted can still reasonably work around it, or in other words, if it's just generally more interesting if it's likely to succeed and not worth slowing down with an extra roll.

    Anything else should be contested. This primarily includes effects which are significantly manipulative or debilitating and are mostly binary in nature: either it happens or it doesn't.
