Many factors influence well...influence...
Charisma talent can help..
Appearance Bonus can as well if allowed...
Extraordinary Influence (Special Event)
The math looks ok but you don't list the Appearances
The CORE IC 17 So that -10 is 7 like you say.
But how do they view each other?
Let's say it is Average so that's a +5 to 7+5=12
Now, the suggestion is CLEARLY to the listener's advantage.
The listener is a Personal contact of the influencer (i assume
this means that the two persons are friends, am i right?) Finally,
the listener is under pressure from some other source to refuse the
request.
Well contacts don't mean they are friends. A thief could have
a Fence contact but they may only tolerate each other but would
sell each other out if paid enough. So Contacts don't mean
friends always.
So, according to the influence chance table on page 18, Book I, the
values are these:
+40%
+40%
-40+W (the listener has a will score of 14)
i end up with a 61% chance of success.
7+14+40+40-40=61
Is this correct?
7+5+40+40-40+14=66%
If my own math is correct.
I tend to rarely use these tables as Role playing is always
better than these charts. One must role the situation. But
if bored then can use the basic math. But looks like your
math is correct without the +5 appearance effect. I've
always treated both charts as 2 for the appearance.
Also don't forget some figures changes from v1 to v2 I think
like one -25 is a -20 now...I didn't check all the figures
but I noticed that one.
