PFS StandardInterrogation

Source Advanced Player's Guide pg. 58
People can't help but trust you, whether through your inherent likableness or your firm insistence on sticking to the truth. You have a way about you that gets others talking, and you've developed interrogative techniques to help you get to the truth of your investigations.

You are trained in Diplomacy. You gain the No Cause for Alarm skill feat. You can also Pursue a Lead over the course of a conversation rather than spending dedicated time looking into the lead, provided the conversation lasts 1 minute or longer. For example, while trying to Make an Impression, you could pursue the creature you're conversing with as a lead, and you could Pursue a Lead about an object while someone is telling you information about that object. You also gain the Pointed Question action.

Success As critical success, but the circumstance bonus is +2.

Critical Failure The target can refuse to answer you as normal, and its attitude toward you decreases by one step due to your aggravating attention.
