- Attribute: Knowledge
- Type: Utility
- Time: N/A
- Description: Those with this skill know how to assume the role of a panhandler, including the attire, mannerisms, and accessories, and how to make the most effective pleas. The character's ability to pass as a panhandler in a particular area is based on the number of skill points in Guile, i.e. novice 0-3 points, expert 4-7 points, master 8+ points. A novice can fool people in passing, while an expert is convincing in direct interactions, and an master can stand up to scrutiny. These characters understand the mindset of panhandlers and know how to speak with them, increasing NPC reactions to the character by one level, i.e. hostile to unfriendly, neutral to friendly, etc, with a successful skill check. If the skill check fails, they do not get the bonus for that particular interaction.
- Specialization: (Optional) A particular area, people, or culture, i.e. port city, small town, by species, etc; selecting a specialization allows the character to spot those pretending to be panhandlers with a successful skill check within their specialized domain.
