Posted By: snejSomeone needs to create a mechanic for courting in Burning Wheel — it could be loosely adapted from the "Battle Of Wits". The tricky bit would be that the parties in courting aren't necessarily opposed, so what would the stakes be?
Posted By: jasonI kind of meant like JD said, though I don't know if I'd put it in such patriarchal terms. One party (man or woman, or even other) has an interest that the other doesn't necessarily share, so you need to make beautiful offerings--of gifts, of eloquence, of song, of poetry, what have you--to draw the other out.How might you try to court an NPC, and gauge whether or not your efforts have swayed him or her, in a fun way?
Posted By: JDCorleyIn other words, you have to stop courting and start doing something more mutual to get to a mutually pleasant ending.
