Force applied through physical and mental means in an attempt to gain something for nothing...this is the brutal Skill of Bully. Beloved by none save the bully himself, this Skill harnesses the power of one's body and mind and puts them to use for the bully against their target. Why bully? Because it's easier than doing something yourself, of course. Bullies only like being bullies as long as they're the best at what they do; when a better bully shows up, lesser bullies scatter like dust in the wind.

Brute Strength

Power of the body, though as unmagical as it may seem, is as important to the wizard as power of the staff. Within brute strength comes the ability to come to resolutions faster and easier, though for the unexperienced not necessarily better. For this is the reason that Brute Strength is only a benefit to the wizard with the wits to know its true value. And so without Brute Strength, perhaps there would not have been courage and discipline either.

Tease

Dominant Attribute: Strength

Tease is exactly what it sounds like...the ability to torture someone by teasing them.  Teasing someone isn't nice, but it can certainly get the job done...if what you're looking for is an unfriendly attitude afterwards.  Still, there are times where you need what you need, and it doesn't matter how you get it.  Teasing someone can certainly open the appropriate doors, just so long as you're willing to accept the consequences afterwards.

  2. "Article, First Weapon of Bullies, by Olin Moor" (Lore)
