    Greetings, all!

    If my spokesman has 18 CHA and WIS, does he need any ranks in social skills (Bluff, Diplomacy, Gather Info, Intimidate, Sense Motive) to complete all Hommlet quests?

    What about for quests in Nulb and Verbobonc?

    The positive modifiers from your stats will show as ranks in a skill, but in order to perform that skill you must have trained in it, (put at least on point in the skill at level up or character creation).

    In PnP DnD some skills are not required to be learned, but I believe that's not the case in this crpg.

    Hmmm... trained vs untrained skills... surely anyone can bluff, be diplomatic or intimidate? By definition those are Charisma checks iof you're untrained, soooo...

    Endarire, do you feel like checking for us?

    I'm am certain you need at least one point in Intimidate to attempt a use of that skill, the initial meeting with a cleric at the temple is a good example of it. The option to intimidate your way upstairs will not appear without a rank in the skill.
