Re: Mass Effect 3.7: "That was for Thane"
Sorry, Zevox, but you're wrong. I see people do all these 'impossible' things all the time. I had a big expository post, but it felt too confrontational.
You don't have to advance, you don't have to get better. But don't insist these things can't be done and, by extension, I'm a liar because you can't do them.
Surprise Obligations (Condition) You have something occur that requires immediate attention, despite anything else you may have been doing. You suffer a -1 to all rolls to persuade any individual that you make promises of timely action to.
When the surprise obligations are resolved (or when all bridges have been burnt, and you have no one with which this condition comes into play) take a beat.
