Evil teammates in TFT.

Hi all,
  Long ago I had a party that split along power gamer / role player lines,
3 vs. 3.  It was super intense, nail biting action.  I was so impressed that 
some years later I tried to "nudge" (e.g. railroad) another group into the
same situation.

  Went over like a lead balloon.  

  My feeling is that for interpersonal conflict scenarios to really work, the
conflict has to be organic, generated by the PC's.

  Of course if the other group is a bunch of NPC's, that is fine.  Trashing 
NPC's is what they come to the table for.  ;-D

Warm regards, Rick.
