(E) Interrogate

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  N/A
  • Description:  This skill is used to force targets to reveal information that they consider personal or secret. With a successful skill check, the target is subjected to manipulative questioning that compels them to reveal information about some specific topic. The target is allowed a morale check at a -1 modifier per skill points in Statecraft to resist the effect. If the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the questioning is ineffective; additional attempts may be made at a progressive difficult (-4) modifier, but after three fails, additional attempts may not be made again with that target until the skill rank has increased.
  • Example of use:  Trick a target to reveal information about a specific person, place, or thing; pressure a target to reveal a master plan; threaten a target with severe consequences to reveal specific details; etc.
  • Specialization:  The Entice skill and four skill points in Statecraft
