Do Large Scale Threats have separate stress tracks for each "solo" die, or one for the whole "character"? (Distinction only really material for area attacks, as with the similar question for mobs (where "board consent" seemed to be going with "separate tracks").)
If an LST takes a complication larger than its die size, does it "complicate out" one die, and immediately lose the complication? Or does it keep both? (This one I could see going either way, depending strongly on narrative details.)

The reason being that you can't use multiple stress dice against the mob or LST without burning a plot point, and those dice will always be on the low side, so you wouldn't want to spend the precious plot points to add a d4 or d6 to your dice pool anyway. This also has the happy accident of keeping mobs and LSTs around just a tad longer so they might actually do something besides buckle under the heroes attacks.
