Head Pat (Cha)

Check: By extending your arm in a non-threatening manner and flapping your arm and hand in the universal sign of encouragement, consolation and praise you can change the attitude of a creature from hostile, unfriendly and indifferent states to friendly.

Action: Takes 1 minute of solid and continuous head patting.

Special: If you have the Persuasive feat, you may head pat two heads at once.

Special: If you have any way to have multiple arms (from customizations, evolutions, the Multi-Armed trait, etc), you may head pat as many heads as you have arms free.

You forgot to include DC's. 9/10.

okay... assuming that this is a joke. Even so, it doesn't make much sense.

1. As stated above, no DCs.
2. Even though it's nonverbal, seems pretty redundant with Diplomacy.
3. It doesn't make much sense. Patting someone on the head, rather than being some social panacea, is a socially-mediated response in a select number of situations. I've only seen it used to help console someone who is actively crying, to congratulate children, or to belittle/tease adults. Outside of those contexts, how does this work? You can walk up to someone on the street and start up a conversation but you look crazy if you walk up to a stranger and start patting their head.

Okay, done taking this too seriously.

This quite possibly the best skill ever conceived. It's much like petting Doggo in undertale. 10/10/10
