Intimidation lets character interrogate others for information and force them to do tasks out of fear.

  • Primary Characteristic: Charisma
  • Time to Perform: As part of an Interaction

Intimidation functions similarly to Charm, except that it attempts to motivate people into performing tasks based on fear instead of kindness. Most characters start out as Indifferent towards the person Intimidating them, though they might begin at a different state depending on the circumstances in which the Intimidation check occurs.

The difficulty in moving someone from one stage of fear to the next is based on the following table:
