Comunista para Cristo
First of, as a non-nativ english speaker, it was quite hard to understand. Maybe if you didn't use such pompous language, everything would be a bit clearer.
Also, I generally dislike having many a skills for social interactions. I find that it only takes one, Charisma for instance, to concey the idea that your character is good at talking.
Deceiving, persuading, lying, reasoning is all just talking. If you can lie, you can of course also smooth talk. If they wanna see if somebody lies? I would personally just tell them how he behaves, how he tries not to look you in the eyes, etc, but you can just let the players make a charisma roll. They wanna convince somebody of something? Charisma roll. They wanna win a clever argument without having a clue on the topic? Charisma roll.
Mate, it seems you have a bit of a problem with reading things correctly.
Thats what I wrote. And I give you some leniency there because its not very good english. But it was late and I was tired.
Gonna try again for you.
No, I don't think we have a fundamentally different opinion on social encounters. I just try to keep the gameplay based on light rules, why you try to cram more names and skills and unecessary words into it.
The interesting thing of a social encounter is not the rolling of a dice. It is the talking, right?
So if the actual base of the encounter does not lie on dice, why make it so that you have more rules related to dice?
And I use "strings" in my gameplay too. I hope almost everyone does. Again, they are called reasons. I really don't know why you would have to call them strings.
You just can't concince somebody to do something without a reason (string).
And of course you pic the only thing where an actual one-dice roll would be sufficient. Seducing somebody is not always just based on words, but on body too. So in that case at the beginning a roll for body might be okayish. Of course followed then by more words and reasons (strings) and dice rolls, if that alone isn't enough.
Mate, I tend to repeat myself, but you seem to have a serious issue with understanding/reading criticism.
But fine, you do you.
Keep improving your system. The base is good, tweak the structure and prose and your good to go.

Also, while it's great that you enjoy lightweight systems, that's not very useful feedback, is it? It's a threadcrap of sorts.
Leave the thread. This is a warning.
