Success

"The Empress? The least of monarchs? I must assume you are mad!"

The trick is to present the Contrarian with a target he can't refuse. As he turns his invective upon your cheery insult of the Traitor Empress, the Admiral's complexion returns to a safer colour. Your host mouths a sincere 'thank you' at you.


Failure

"Sir! You have insulted my nation, my dignity and my moustache! I—" urk!

Too late! The Admiral has passed the limit of his patience. He stands then collapses – purple-faced – into the sprout tureen. The evening comes to an abrupt end; […] the Contrarian is apologetic. He doesn't know why this keeps happening.
