[Skills help] persuade

Syntax: persuade  

Persuade is the ultimate skill of a bard, the fusion of his fast talking
ability with a magical tongue.  It allows him to talk someone into committing
a single action that may not be in their best interest.  In practice, persuade
works much like the order command but without any charm affect taking place.

There are actions that are impossible to persuade someone to do.  Not only are 
the obvious game-related commands like quit or save off limits, but it is also
impossible to persuade them to join your group or give you their possessions.
A bard cannot persuade while singing.  It also uses a lot of magical energy.
