Make an Intimidate check to influence others through hostile actions, overt threats, and deadly persuasion.Intimidate can be used in combat encounters or as part of a Skill Challenge that requires a number of successes.
To bully is to intimidate through blustering, domineering, or threatening behavior: workers who were bullied into accepting a poor contract.
Use this skill to get a bully to back down, to frighten an opponent, or to make a prisoner give you the information you want.
Intimidation can also be used as a means of diverting the target's attention.
The narcissist flies into a rage, for example, when he is asked questions that he doesn't want to answer.
A narcissist usually selects targets with high levels of empathy or codependency, so when she sees him upset or angry, she goes into soothing mode and tries to appease him, be it through submission, silence, agreement to unfair terms, etc.
He uses other forms of manipulation, including blame-shifting, that contribute to making her feel like it's her fault that he got so angry.
Your Intimidate checks are made against a target’s Will defense or a level-appropriate DC set by the DM (usually moderate or Hard).
The target’s general attitude toward you and other conditional modifiers (such as what you might be seeking to accomplish or what you’re asking for) might apply to the DC.
Because you want to protect yourself and diffuse his anger, you agree to his terms.
