Default Re: GURPS: Adapting the Duel of Wits

This is covered as a topic in GURPS Social Engineering, but it doesn't use a combat-like structure at all; it's just competing Influence rolls, and possible complementary skill rolls to help out in various ways. Though there are a couple of techniques in the appendix, I think—notably the Irony technique, which emphasizes undermining the opponent's argumentative credibility.

A human being should know how to live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse. Specialization is for insects.
