File Civil Complaint (Active)
Students who are well enough versed in Civil Law can take a chance and file lawsuits against their enemies in the Lesser Court; if one's Civil Law Subskill and Charm is greater than his or her target’s Debate Subskill and Intelligence, one can win tidy sums - and also potentially impose an academic Reprimand on the opposition, if the magistrate at hand is sufficiently impressed to send a messenger to the school. The process is, however, expensive, with a flat processing fee of twenty-five pims, and further deductions imposed on any money exchange. [More concisely: your target loses more money than you're going to get.] Note that making a successful case will also earn you 1 Step Expansions to Persuasion and to Debate.
