I don't know what a conversation looks like to other GMs.
Do you have players start out each conversation by saying, "I'm using [I]Flattery[/I]" before proceeding to flatter?
My players don't really do this. Instead they just roleplay with the NPCs, which is good since it doesn't break immersion... should I just assume they're using an ability?
I guess I'm confused, really. It doesn't impact my game too heavily, but I want to know what it's supposed to look like... or what it looks like on your end of the table.
