Etiquette
General
1 Slot
Charisma

The proficient character is aware of the proper forms of behavior and address in social situations, especially including situations involving nobility. For typical uses (the correct title for a Duke, the fanfare used to greet visiting diplomats, seating lords and ladies at a table, organizing a reception line, gestures to avoid in the presence of dwarves, etc.), no check is required. For very unusual circumstances (such as an imperial visit), a proficiency check is required.

The proficiency does not immunize a character from doing the wrong thing or making a faux pas -- a character who knows better certainly can violate the social norms in a situation.
