  • Lingua Bellum for intimidate based characters

    as an intimidate based character in Lingua Bellum you don't have many options. There are a few great maneuvers within the Covenant Styles, but they generally can only be used once per exchange, meaning that you pretty much have to have a good socialize or persuasion score for your attacks.

    Do you find that fitting? On one hand, it feels like we're talking about Elysium discussions, and if you're trying to get everyone under your scary heel, then chances are you're not debating/using Lingua Bellum, on the other addressing the crowds fears and all of that could possibly be a good tactic...

    What is a competition?

    For competitive lashing out and the competitive condition.
    What is a competition?
    is a 1v1 Lingua Bellum a competition?

    What other non-direct competition could/would fall under this?...

    Air of Menace in Lingua Bellum

    Hello,

    I'm using Lingua Bellum system from Guide to the Night, and while some merits have their applications/changes spelled out in the book, for obvious reasons it's not all of them.
    In any case, I got into an argument with one of my players, after he asked how would it apply, and since he does not like my ruling, we're coming to the forums for some collective wisdom.

    Air of Menace in normal system has 4 effects.
    1) +2 bonus to intimidation rolls when cowing opposition

  • Blood bonds as an example, do not give you Retainers or any other merits. Blood bonding someone does not make them a slave to you by itself. Blood bonding gives you bonuses to convince people to do stuff for you. There's no reason your blood bonded person needs to be a Retainer.
    At my table a blood bonded Retainer won't ask questions too much, you tell him to do stuff, and he does, because he's a Retainer.
    A blood bonded non-Retainer, will need to be convinced, and that's where Blood Bond kicks in.
    Blood Bond is still useful in Retainers as it's gonna be harder to make them...
