So you don't think that we need a book that elaborates on the rules for social traits, influence skills and reactions? Or that just that you don't like the title?

What's that got to do with GURPS Lying?

Because you were responding to this:

I can't tell if you have a problem with the subject of Social Engineering, the title, or both. I'm not sure that I care all that much, though.

I'm eagerly awaiting it myself.

You may want to pop over to the thread in question.

Hint- it's not an especially serious thread, SirPudding.

If you don't care, why are you asking? That seems odd.

Social Engineering isn't lying. Lying is a portion of it, but it's really just about getting what you want. Putting on a telephone worker's uniform so nobody questions you while you stake out a house, leaving a spell on some money so that you can track the person that picks it up and knowing what you can do to block off an area without arousing suspicion would be social engineering. It's all about messing with the rules of the social structure to create a system that's profitable.

No idea. Why can't you just say what you mean instead of dancing around it?

Because I'm a delicate, dancing, dainty doodblebug?

I think the title sounds a mite pretentious. Hmmm...and I'm not convinced that I need a whole slough of new social rules. YMMV, of course.
