Puppy-Dog Eyes

Remember the beginning of Conan the Barbarian, where James Earl Jones gives Schwarzenegger’s mom the most peaceful, kindhearted look in the world—and then cuts her head off? You’ve got that in spades. No matter how hard-hearted the bastard, one painful look from your baby blues will have him bawling like a little girl. Any GMC attempting to strike a killing blow must pass a Willpower check equal to your Charisma in order to do so. Failure means he can’t bring himself to settle your hash. (The GMC doesn’t lose his action for that round; he simply isn’t allowed to use it killing you.) This schtick has no effect on GMCs incapable of feeling emotions. Killbot XJ-36 won’t go all weepy just because you look forlorn. Of course, the use of this schtick is waived if you’re being particularly aggravating. Kicking or shooting at someone doesn’t leave them vulnerable to this kind of emotional manipulation.
