    started a topic Social Combat discussion.

    Social Combat discussion.

    It can last weeks, if you have an average impression, this seems like it could be awkward for many purposes.

    like, when I was 21 only a week or two I treated myself out.

    Didnt know much about wine or beer (still dont know as much as I should) one of the servers, tried talking me up as much as he could to see how much he could squeeze out of me.

    another curious Question

    ideas on using non merits as Soft Leverage?

    information Could be valuable.

    or in the fan game princess

    A collection of seeds could be a life saver.

    was asking is that simple enough to just bed one die roll?
    Ahh. Then sure, that could be a Forcing Doors roll. Probably Presence + Intimidation.

    If you want it to be... sure. I'd probably use Forcing Doors just for the framing of how hard different people might be to intimidate (and I might not say Manipulation for this roll either), but there's no reason for this to be multiple roll situation unless you're trying to work someone to this over multiple interactions.

    Tell them you are doing a painting/art piece and that this is the best pose to show off all their positive traits?

    Sounds like a different approach than “flatter their ego,” and in that case I’d probably call for Manipulation + Subterfuge.

    Flattering someone's ego usually don't make them kneel to you. That's what people are reacting to.

    to flatter your ego, to make an enemy kneel? is a simple man+intimidate roll enough.

    If it helps you to think about it that way, sure.

    Probably enough, save for how I can't imagine how you can flatter someone's ego and make them kneel at the same time.

    Ok what I was asking is what would the best thing in system to cause that kind of misunderstanding be? a Dramatic failure?
    Roleplaying. Your previous experience with tele-conmen left you suspicious of people asking questions about money on the phone, and the debt collectors said nothing that would alleviate this suspicion. There's no roll necessary in this situation.

    Remember, dice only get rolled when the outcome of an action is uncertain. There was no uncertainty in this situation, your "character" was hostile towards people trying to get money from them over the phone, and the debt collectors' approach involved trying to get money from you over the phone. No need for a roll, because based on the approach, the action had no chance of succeeding in the first place.
