Forgive me if this has already been addressed, but I failed to find it in any of my searches in the Beginner Box Forum.
I have a rather impetuous dwarven barbarian in my group who loves to intimidate people. How should I handle a skill check for intimidation as the PBB does not have this skill listed?
Charisma check (d20+modifier vs difficulty)?
Bluff check (ie he isn't really going to pummel the kobold to death but is threatening to)?
Diplomacy check(ie he really will crush the kobolds little skull like a walnut if he doesn't tell him what he wants to know)?
I'd argue that if it's a bluff attempt (If he's threatening to damage his store when he, at this point, has no intention of actually doing), make it a bluff.
If it's peaceful transaction that he's just trying to get the upper hand on, it'd be diplomacy.
In the end?
Most def. a Bluff check. The Kobold doesn't know if he's telling the truth or not about this supposed beating, regardless of if he is or not. Bluff it up, and let's hear what horrible fate awaits the silly thing who "calls his bluff"
