Persuasion_Intimidate

Cooldown 50. You try to terrify adjacent, hostile creatures (1d8 + [Ego modifier] penetration roll vs. MA). On success, a frightened creature flees from you for 4d4 rounds.

Intimidate is a useful survival skill, potentially creating openings and breaking up groups of enemies. Even characters with moderate Ego can benefit, as many powerful creatures have poor mental armor relative to their level.

This skill can be learned through water ritual with Warden indrix.pngWarden Indrix, Goatfolk Pariah.
