Aristotle felt that for someone to feel pity they have to feel misfortune is undeserved. To do that, the listener must feel the beggar has sufficient honor to be worthy of help. This trick is the beggar using their Honor to get the listener to want to answer their request. This trick removes the requirement of the Personal Code hook if the beggarís Honor score is greater than the listenerís Honor score.

Aware of the Crowd
Keeping an eye out for the mood of the crowd. This trick must be used for Perception difficulties on Begging challenges.
