Aha.  I am so uncultured. 

Well, I got it second-hand from Neil Gaiman, so I'm not sure it actually counts as culture.

The side you rolled for most recently (with that character) is the side that you can claim.  When you switch allegiance you lose your old allegiance (although you are still eligible as someone who was on the losing side at one point.

This gets even more complicated if the player has multiple characters, of course.

If I play Zak on the red side of "Destroy Chrysalis Station" and simultaneously play "Monumentally Bad Decision" on the blue side of that same conflict then I have a right to claim either side (or both!)  And, of course, I can get story tokens however it works out, since I opposed ... well ... everything.

I don't understand this.  Could you go through it step by step?  How can a player claim both sides of a Conflict?  Wouldn't this be a winning strategy to getting story tokens, especially is someone has staked debt, but even if you are the one stking the debt for purposes of conversion?
