In a direct contest between the caster's Insight and skill at Intimidation and his captive's Strength and Composure, a victory for the caster imposes a 2 point Decrease to the opponent's Awareness and Charm, and a 3 point Decrease to Composure. A second level of challenge - Insight/Intimidation vs. Strength/Composure +3 - results in the opponent shedding 3 points from his or her ability to Lie, and gaining (permanently) a point of Stress in return. The temporary effects last for three days.
