comment As a GM, how to react to players challenging contradictions in your narration?
How often will interesting stories arise from continuity nitpicks, and how often will these engage all players rather than just the one making the complaint? Do we have reason to believe that the entire group wants the story to start focusing on knife design rather than rescuing the captured sultan? I see this strategy easily leading to derailed sessions obsessing over a single player's uninteresting pet peeve. If the answer is that the group will generally decide to not follow these leads, then this answer is incomplete and we still need to know how to handle those situations.

I could, but the question has also been updated to make this answer off-topic.

I took a look at the suggestions in Mutant City Blues, and here's a summary: For gamemasters, it is suggested to make things easier for the players by allowing retconning, giving hints, and allowing all players to help out even if their characters are not present. For players, it is suggested to figure out what the subject wants and not feel pressured to be 100% in control, since having the subject talk is always a good thing. Feel free to work this into your answer.

Also, you seem to focus on fear of pain specifically. I assume one can instead use fear of losing one's job, losing one's friends, being jailed, being deported, and so on? Especially since fear of pain still leads the PCs down the path to torture.
