Obey: Fight Me
#1
If Taunt (as per the Exim Guardian Chem path) is used successfully on a target that is incapable of any offensive action, what is the expected response from that target?

I know that I would likely roleplay attempting to grapple/punch/kick the person who taunted me, but the rules for "OBEY" effects merely state that the affected individual must attempt to follow the command to the best of their ability.

To extend this - can you be compelled to do things you can't do normally?

Ex:
Can an Android be ordered to kill a human via a power?

I actually found the answer to your question while looking for mine, Jeff. The answer is: yes.

Obey overrides programming.

As I understand it, you would have to make every effort to take offensive action against the person, regardless of if you have weapons or not, however Id wait for a response from an officail rules person

Hey Keegan,

Here is the official rules response:
They are to engage to the best of their ability. Get in their face. Be aggressive, etc. Do not physically attack someone, but pantomime aggression.

Thanks!
