Cost: 3 Character Points; + 1 to roll per + 2 points

This Interaction Skill gives a character the ability to strike a good bargain with a merchant or customer.
Prices often aren’t fixed, especially in non-contemporary genres, so a character with Trading can save (or make) considerable money.

A successful Skill Versus Skill Contest (versus the other character’s Trading or an INT Roll) means the character gets a bargain price — the better the roll, the better the bargain. A failed roll usually just means further haggling (or a refusal to buy if he can’t get the price down to where he wants it) — but if he fails the roll badly, he’ll cheerfully pay too much under the impression he’s getting a bargain. It helps if the GM makes some of these rolls instead of the player, so the player can’t see the results.
