So Aurthor attempt his first social set
Pre+Leadership -2 (he could use any skill as all his social abilities are zero, so these are all at base stat)
Coyotecode 148889 - 4, 9, 10, so result 9, 12, potential botch. I will spend 1 confidence on the first roll to make a 12 and succeed.
Reroll with 4 dice (1 for stressful situation, 3 for using ability with zero xp in it)
coyotecode 148892 - 8,4,5,10 - so 1 botch!
Results so far - 2 success and 1 botch, so one reward, one loss and one extra day of time.
Using different attributes for the second set
Sta + Artes Liberales(rhetoric) as I make a long speech +2 (I have one dice in this so no extra botch dice)
Per + Folk Ken to read the crowd -2 - I will try and boost this using Aura of ennobled presence which gives a +2bonus for being 2nd magnitude
Qik + Etiquette to make a really quick apology 0
so 2 ability rolls, spellcasting then 1 more ability roll
coyotecode 148894 6, 9, 7, 4 so results 8, 7, spell is cast so +2 bonus brings 2nd result up to 9, and 4. I will spend a confidence to bring 1st result up to 11. Two successes, so I gain 1 reward.
Time taken is base 12 + 2 sets of rolls + 1 botch, total 15 days. Do I need another activity for the other 75 days of this month?
Rewards - new character (Anna the apprentice), 1 confidence (so I am down one point). Losses - taking a wound at this difficulty will kill a small-framed character, so I will take a negative reputation of 1 point - Socially Awkward.
Aurthor tried to confidently charm Anna's family and tell them what they wanted to hear. Sadly his attempts to be charismatic failed and nearly brought the family to blows. One long speech full of classical allusions later, the family conceded he may have a point about ensuring Anna's place in this world. A quick casting of Aura of Ennobled Presence and better reading of the family's emotions meant they were able to accept his offer to take their daughter away to a place of scholarship where she would be safe, but the sheer number of social faux pas has given Aurthor a poor reputation.
