Advanced Rules: Charisma

This page is for advanced rules related to the Charisma skill.


Rank and NPC relations

Progressing through the Tartarus Incorporated REKT ranks can give a significant boost to your charisma. If talking to someone a higher rank than you, it can also give significant penalties, depending on where you are. The following table demonstrates how rank affects charisma rolls.

Situation Effect if higher rank Effect if lower rank
Platoon member on a mission +1 per rank -1 per 2 ranks
Non-platoon inmate on a mission +1 per 2 ranks -1 per 4 ranks
Staff on a mission No effect +1 per 2 ranks past 0
Platoon member on Tartarus +1 per 2 ranks -1 per 2 ranks
Inmate on Tartarus +1 per 4 ranks -1 per 4 ranks
Staff on Tartarus No effect +1 per 3 missions past 0
CHIARA No effect Constant +4
SCAMPS No effect Constant +2
HADES No effect -1 per 3 missions below 10

In addition to this, there are also "relationship points" that may be gained or lost with NPCs. These are gained through roleplay - by being kind to people. It is possible to have negative relationship points.

On-mission Leadership Rolls

On a mission, the platoon is divided into groups based on who is in the immediate vicinity. If you have three people in a room from two different squads, these three characters are counted as a "group". They get a "leadership roll" based on the charisma of the group member with the most points in that skill. If the roll is successful (7 points or more), then all actions taken by that group have a +1 bonus for that turn. The roll is equal to (1d6 + highest charisma in group).

Leadership rolls do not happen for groups smaller than three characters.

There can be penalties for this as well. Leadership rolls happen regardless of whether anyone in your group has positive charisma. If everyone has negative charisma, it still rolls with the highest. If the outcome is negative, the roll is considered failed - your group has no leadership and will take a -1 penalty to all actions for that turn.
