comment Can you concede by dying in Dresden Files?
Doesn't a concession have to be offered before the roll? (Which may mean that the wizard is winding up a big fireball, but it's not a 20 shift one yet as nothing has been rolled). This would make the OP's GM's "threat" of a mook conceding death less reasonable - they'd have to do it before the roll - and more reason for the table to reject it.

Isn't a concession an offer? (Rather than a done deal). Point being that the player throws the "Massively Overpowered Fireball" and the NPC chooses to offer a concession by dying (per the OP's concern). Doesn't the player have the option of refusing the concession (and thus the death) and retaining narrative control when they Take Out the NPC? (Where they can choose instead to have the NPC scorched, blown backwards, and unconscious rather than dead).
