Oh, I'm sure we all regarded that tactic as common knowledge. What else, after all, is a pin good for? What greater good could be gained than replenishing the all-important goblin witch?

The tricky bit, of course, is to bring the opponent down to a multiple of 5 ST before pinning.

So, if he has 5, 10 or 15 ST when pinned, you can drain him to unconsciousness. Otherwise not.
