New Specialty: Politics
When I was writing Liberty And Justice For All it occurred to me that a Specialty for handling political confrontations would serve the story very well. Since then I’ve written the Politics Specialty, which I present below.
You have experience dealing with the world of politics, from handling lobbyists to getting bills passed into law to blocking legislation and getting legislators in your pocket. You can double-talk with the best of them and can read the current political climate and the will of the people, turning policy into action or inaction as needed.
- A Politics Expert is the equivalent of a congressional aide, local politician, a lobbyist for a marginally-influential group or similarly influential person in government.
- A Politics Master has the experience and fortitude of a national politician, ambassador, major lobbyist or leader and knows exactly how to ensure his party gets things done while stumping his political opponents.
- Politics Stunts include detailed analysis of political climates, giving speeches that sway voters and peers alike, blocking legislation and pushing a law through a legislative vote.
- Political Resources include contacts amongst lobbyists, news media, political and government officials and other related areas, as well as legal documents and the ability to pressure those in power for release of otherwise secret information.
