Torture? What Torture? Edit

Dear Foxwarrior,

I was very much looking forward to seeing interesting and useful rules about applying electricity to torture people. Not because I'm a sadist, but because I'm curious.

But your feat does not help the character at all with any torturing attempts. It makes me very sad. -- 96.251.98.118 04:50, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry this makes you so sad. I could make it give you a circumstance bonus to Intimidate checks made to torture people, like the torture devices in the Book of Vile Darkness, but the Book of Vile Darkness makes the DC so low that there's really no point to using torture implements at all.
I don't know of any other torture rules to use, and a feat doesn't seem like a very good place to introduce them, I'm afraid. --Foxwarrior 05:06, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
I suppose it isn't really possible to rename something at this stage, huh? -- 96.251.98.118 18:34, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
It is possible; but this feat really is about as torturous as an effect can get if there are no rules for it. --Foxwarrior 19:27, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

You are Correct, Sir Edit

This indeed might break the torture rules. Seeing as, at level 10, the non-lethal lightning damage is 10d6+10, or an average of 45, which means the target is going to be spilling everything but his deepest, darkest secrets after a shock. A better way to go about it might be to be able to give a circumstance bonus of some sort to the Torture check whenever you use non-lethal lightning. → Rith (talk) 06:07, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

45 isn't overly high for a skill check at level 10, if you bother to invest in items, class features, or feats which can boost the skill check. As this only benefits one subaction of one skill, it wouldn't be very excessive if that were all it did. No, the problem will be when the Electric Mage Overcharges and deals 45 damage at level 5. --Foxwarrior 06:19, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
