Bringer of Agony [Torture, Vile] Prerequisites: Evil Alignment, Intimidate 4 ranks, Craft (Alchemy) 4 ranks.Benefit: You can now brew up gorgon blood, scathe bile, and blister juice with the Craft (Alchemy) skill. Also, you can now use the Intimidate skill use Torture:

Torture -- You can use the intimidate skill to try and force a person to give you information that they would never choose to give you of their own free will, via the use of unbearable suffering and mind-breaking torture. To do so, you spend a time to inflict mortal agony upon a creature (the exact time depends on the situation. For example, it could take less than a minute, as the creature in question spits out the information upon seeing the torture devices), and make an intimidate check to try and force a piece of information out of them (use the tables below to determine exact DCs). A creature who is immune to pain or fear is immune to this use of the intimidate skill.
