    Practiced, polished, perfect

    Success Instructions: Confident Smiles offer you Second Chances on Persuasive checks. You can use Second Chances to retry a failed check – but you must choose to spend them before attempting it. If you fail, you get another shot. You lose the Second Chance either way.

    Second Chances are particularly useful for branches that you can only attempt once, or where failure would set you back to some degree. You may find these useful for securing an invitation to the ball.

    You can also spend Second Chances in Your Social Engagements to improve your skills.
