With a successful check
, a character can forcibly persuade another character to perform some task or behave in a certain way. A character's Intimidate check
is op-posed by the target's level check
(1d20 + the target's character level or Hit Dice). Any modifiers that a target may have on Will saving throws
against fear effects apply to this level check
. If the character succeeds, he or she may treat the target as friendly for 10 minutes, but only for purposes of actions taken while in the character's presence. (That is, the target retains his or her normal attitude, but will chat, advise, offer limited help, or advocate on the character's behalf while intimidated.)
Circumstances dramatically affect the effectiveness of an Intimidate check
There are limits to what a successful Intimidate check
The character can't force someone to obey his or her every command or do something that endangers that person's life.
If the character fails by more than 5, the target may actually do the opposite of what the character wishes.
No. Even if the initial check
succeeds, the other character can only be intimidated so much, and trying again
doesn't help. If the initial check
fails, the other character has become more firmly resolved to resist the intimidator, and trying again
A character can take 10 when making an Intimidate check
, but can't take 20.
A character immune to fear effects can't be intimidated.
A character may add a +2 bonus to his or her Intimidate check
for every size category the character is larger than his or her target. Conversely, the character takes a -2 penalty to his or her check
for every size category the character is smaller than his or her target.
A character with the Confident feat
gets a +2 bonus on all Intimidate checks and on level checks to resist intimidation.
