Hey everyone... so I know I'm not a newbie anymore =( but this probably fits best here....

I'm wondering about mixing tough and charming skills - does this significantly help solve the almost impossibles? what are you opinions?

i have all the tough and all the smart skills, save most of the faction stuff and stress det., and I am slowly gaining new skill points.

I'm at a loss as to what to buy next! I was considering stress detection, just cause I think it's handy (my old detective had it, so I know what it does) but then I wonder if I should start on my Charm stuff... I am at a -8 in Charm Gear though, and hunting villains, so I can't change equipment...

I'm lost! Help! Lol.

PS, I do have pugilism, and am not terribly interested in the rest of the faction stuff at this point.

Smart Gear is for analyzing the crime scene and works with Surviellance (faction gear).

Stick you need to be subscribed to travel so Underworld is not avialbe to you.

I personally think it is worth the price of subscription just for that skill.

As a fully skilled detective, I find that it is easiest to have a ballance of tough and charming, and while most times even in AI's flirting will override the negative for members of the opposite sex, i do use tough skills for interviewing male suspects most of the time now, and if you can get all of the tough and charming skills i would recomend it, at which point it is best to be ballanced in terms of what you carry with you. Of course my ballance is thrown off by carrying the travel kit, but before that i was 0 tough and like 20 charm with the use of the pearl handled dirk.

Well, thanks everyone for your opinions! I think I'll definitely go with Underworld Connections... they've been recommended so much!

If anyone else has any opinions on the subject, I'm all ears!

Underworld Connections is a Charm skill... will my -8 in charm gear affect it? Would better gear enhance it?
