@Vincent7: Let's say I'm playing Wikked Age, an almost-familiar game from a closely parallel dimension.

In scene 1, players Amy and Bob oppose each other, and Bob's character winds up winning big-time. Amy got completely blown away and didn't even make it onto the "We are indebted to" list. As the GM, I am inspired by some detail of that scene and frame Scene 2. The framing is really unfriendly to Bob's character, and places him in a socially uncomfortable position.
