A note on manipulation in AW-games, specifically MotW.

To manipulate someone, you really need two things:

1) Leverage.  Basically, you need something they want.  This could also be something they don't want, like "getting shot."
2) Something you want them to do.  The more immediate the better, but a lot of that will depend on the situation.  Immediate threats don't tend to create long-term compliance.
