- Attribute: Influence
- Type: Attack
- Time: N/A
- Description: Those with this skill are able to talk in circles, leaving their target perplexed and unable to think clearly, setting them up to be manipulated. With a successful skill check, the target becomes flustered, briefly overcome with confusing or conflicting thoughts, etc, suffering a -1 modifier per skill point in Statecraft to any Willpower or Morale saves for a number of rounds equal to the number of skill points in Statecraft. The target is allowed a Willpower or related save to negate the effect. If the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the modifiers are lost; it may not be used in conjunction with the Endear or Fast Talk skills.
- Specialization: (Optional) Trader, Merchant, Politician, Diplomat, etc; selecting a specialization gives the target a -1 modifier per two skill points in Statecraft to their Willpower save to negate the effect within that specialization arena.
