So Etiquette is a skill that not a whole lot of systems have, so I think it’s kind of cool that it exists in norns. The book is a little unclear though on how to implement it, so I’m curious about some of the approaches taken by other GMs.

Is it something where if a PC is about to do something offensive you can call for etiquette check to try and see if they’d know not to do this? Is it something you add to verbal manipulation depending on how the persuasion attempt is role played? Hell, could you use it instead of verbal manipulation? Is it something where players have to explicitly ask something like what is the proper protocol for x?

I like skills that aren’t the generic stuff you can find in any and every system (I’m looking at you perception and sneak), and I really want to give this skill a chance to shine (especially since one of my PCs RPs as super polite and eloquent anyway, and this is a nice way to reward that). I’m just unclear on the best way to do so.
