In a BW this week, we were trying to impress some Great Spiders. This NPC had been seeking asylum with them and we convinced them that was a bad idea.
The NPC was a summoner and we wanted to do our best to keep him from any doing bad shenanigans so we decided to cut his tongue out. We thought, hey, this could be an opportunity. Maybe the spiders appreciate a show of force and this will show them we're not to be messed with. And if we can impress them hopefully future dealings will go better for us.
But then we started checking on skill descriptions and nothing really seemed to fit. We weren't trying to intimidate them. Persuasion didn't feel right. In the end we went with a will test.
Were we over-thinking skill use and not being broad enough in their application?
