Slip of the Tongue (Rank 2) Edit

Sensing the truth is the purview of the Half Moon, but the trickster is adept at obtaining admissions of guilt, however accidental. By engaging in a conversation (heated or otherwise), the user of this Gift can make the target accidentally remark on what she wished to hide ("of course I had everything to do with his death... I mean, nothing to do with it!" or "The necklace isn't here, search all you like, but don't bother with the study, that's so obvious!") The slip may only arouse already suspicious minds, but it may fluster the target enough to cause some more tangible admission of guilt, like a confession or an attack. This Gift is taught by a Gaffling of Falcon or by any truth spirit.

System Edit

The Ragabash must engage the target in a conversation relating to the suspected crime or action. The player and target make a resisted Manipulation + Subterfuge roll, difficulty of the opponent's Willpower. One success allows a subtle slip only noticeable to the already suspicious, while five results in the spilling of damning information no judge could discount.

Other names for this gift: Forked Tongue
