Triggering effects of "winning an icon struggle"

I guess this is a fundamental timing question:


The timing diagram in the rules shows that all 4 struggles are in a 'box' that precludes playing card actions or responses.

So, "A Scheme of Byakees" says: "Forced Response: After you win a (T) struggle at a story to which A Scheme of Byakhees is committed, the losing player must either discard a card from his hand, or drive a character he controls insane."


Does the losing player have to act immediately after the Terror Struggle, or in after the success of the last committed story is determined?

From the FAQ:

(3.2) Resolving Stories Resolving struggles and determining success at all three story cards happens all within the same “green box” on the timing flowchart. Thus, no Action or Response effects can be triggered between one story’s resolution and the beginning of the next story’s resolution. The only effects players can choose to trigger are Disrupts, however Forced Response effects that apply to the situation must trigger automatically.



So, immediately after the Terror struggle.
