Interrogation strategy requirements a bit steep?
« on: September 29, 2015, 04:52:05 PM »
Maybe it's my noobish GM skills, but it seems to my players and I that Interrogation strategies are hard to use.  The base will save requirements are pretty strenuous.  My 2 players have 4th level characters (Soldier and Wheelman, not a brain trust) and neither of them had will save bonuses of 4+ so that meant five of the eight strategies were inaccessible to them.

It didn't matter much since the NPC they were trying to interrogate wasn't up to the task either.  He had a Competence Bonus of VII and the 2 PC's have a Threat Level of 2, which by my read means only a +3.  Wound up just using a streamlined check, but after our session, we chatted a bit more and couldn't figure out how Interrogation dramatic conflicts could be conceivably used with lower level characters.

Are we just misinterpreting these strategy requirements?  Thanks in advance.
