Huh. Huh.

Yup, i missed that.

Savage: -2 on reaction rolls and -4 on skill rolls when buying or selling goods, finding backers, or engaging in similar negotiations, and a 6 or less chance of being denied entry to town.*
Okay. So if I read the DFRPG version (which is written differently*) this way it makes it equitable.


This issue just cropped up for me after reading the DFRPG version of Savage which says " have penalties when negotiating in or out of the dungeon" which to me goes hand in hand with "but... all social situations are a negotiation!11!"

If I instead read it as "business transactions" explicitly buying and selling, then it comes into line. I'd probably lump "negotiations to avoid fighting" into that, it seems appropriate after all.
Feel free to steal, borrow, fold, spindle, mutilate any rule, advantage, etc I come up with it.
