p 75, Table 2.12Huh? where did the minus 10 come from? I must have totally misread the intimidation rolls. I didn't know bribery was mandatory for intimidate.
It's not bribery necessarily it's about offering them an "out" for their behavior, even if that "out" is only "I'll live". The None/-10 level is probably harsh on my part: you're threatening her with bodily harm, which more likely puts it at Moderate/+0. You notice she'll still beat you.
The point of Intimidate isn't that it's better than Impress. It's that it's faster: only 1 full round to pull off, vs 1 minute. Fantasy Craft evidently decided "Intimidate" shouldn't mean "exactly like Persuasion, but for mean people".
I'll tell you what: you have One-Eye humble herself a little and I'll ignore the Disposition downgrade, or you can take an extra Action Die for pulling off an in-character move despite it being mechanically non-optimal.
