The King of Wakovia has two orders of knights at his service: the Order of the Stone and the Order of the Temple. The Stone Knights suffer a higher death rate when fighting dragons that do the Temple Knights. However, when fighting red dragons, the Temple Knights have the higher death rate; and when fighting green dragons, the Temple Knights also have the higher death rate. There are no other kinds of dragons. What do we call this phenomenon, and how is it possible? Be specific.And if you're an RPG geek, I expect your answer to be even more specific.

I put this question on yesterday's exam for my Econ-Stat students. I'm curious to see how many people can figure out the answer without having heard the corresponding lesson in class.
