        • (hidden check) Intelligence:[7]
        • If you lack enough Intelligence or fail the hidden checks, you will be expelled from the guild and then fight against two Commercium guards
          • If you survive, you will be then stopped by a Daratan Captain and five guards who will demand that you leave Teron immediately and not come back
    • [persuasion][streetwise] "I expect you to be able to put two and two together. Teron is too important, especially after this fiasco. Is it so hard for you to believe that Caer-Tor would want their best men to oversee the rebuilding and demonstrate the Guards' strength?"

      2. Streetwise + Charisma = [15]

You're thinking like a farmer who finds a plough, being eager to break his back working his fields. Think like a merchant. Ask yourself 'what can I get for this plough' and leave the fields to simpler men."
