Intimidation Skill
A character with the Intimidation Skill is able to frighten or brow beat other individuals into submission or obedience. Like the Command Skill, Intimidation involves making others do your will, but where Command instills in them the desire to serve your means out of loyalty or a sense of duty, Intimidation causes them to obey out of fear of retribution, known or unknown. This skill is useful to people like bouncers, torturers, bandits and other individuals who have no direct social or political authority over an individual, but still adopt a position of power over them.
