Swindle

-----------------------------=< Swindle >=-------------------------------

Swindler Level 84

Usage: swindle <item> <victim>

Swindle allows the silver-tongued swindler to beguile and lull the
intended victim into allowing him/her to "borrow" some credits, an
item in use or in inventory, or even a weapon.  However, it is much
harder to swindle someone out equipment if it is in use or worn.
A high charisma is the swindler's best friend during these exchanges.

Mobs can learn from a swindler, and may be harder to swindle in the
future.  May the "borrower" beware.

the mobs awareness.  This is an offensive skill, any mistakes on the
swindlers part will no doubt cause some form of retaliation.

for several seconds due to numb fingers.  The draw skill can still be
used.

If the target is a mobile, the victim will deal reduced damage for
a short duration of time.  This skill can be used on mobs without
a true weapon object for the damage reduction benefit.  This is

charisma benefits.  The skill operates on a 40 second timer.
