Please help me out. What are some uses for intimidation during combat?
If I have to ask the GM for it, then I don't want it.
Remember Intimidation isn't just about fear. It's about force of personality, which is why it's tied to Charisma in D&D. You can be intimidating even if you can't even make physical contact with the target, and you can fail to be intimidating even if you're capable of vaporizing an entire town.
For any decision or adjudication, ask yourself, "Is this going to be fun for everyone?" and "Is this going to lead to the creation of an exciting, memorable story?"

The cool thing is, you don't even NEED a reason to say yes. Just stop looking for a reason to say no.
Thanks for the replies.Sounds like, for the most part, we're talking about using it in role-playing situations that arise during combat situations.
