Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step: Rank + CHA
Though most societies publicly disapprove of bribes, those same societies harbor many members more than willing to take them. Bribery is the skill of discreetly buying favors. Characters who have this skill can use any number of successful methods to disguise the exchange. The character makes a Bribery Test against the target’s Social Defense, +1 for each additional character. If successful, the target will do the favor asked. Small favors require a small amount of cash, for example, 5 silver pieces or the equivalent of a few hours’ wages for each target. For large favors, the asking character must produce a bribe equal to a day’s earnings for the target. A character willing to offer larger-than-necessary bribes may receive a bonus to his Bribery Test, at the gamemaster’s discretion.
