Feature: Master of banter[edit]

Thanks to how you carry yourself, people can't help but notice you and pay attention to what you're doing. You know just how to get under people's skin; you may if you wish turn an indifferent or unfriendly creature hostile, usually making them look extremely foolish and undignified in the process.

Thanks to a special connection with ye olde Nando's you now always know what direction a tavern selling food will be along with roughly how much time it will take to travel there with 'the lads'. Due to your recurring points card, you eat at a discount.
