This mod adds six new 'abilities' to Speechcraft, namely Ceasefire, Threaten, Confidence, Engage, Embolden, and Subdue. The idea is to encourage the player to train in Speechcraft and allow them to make use of this skill outside of dialogue. Speechcraft and its perks are however not required to make use of the abilities' basic effects. *The perks are not required in the alternate version, requiring Speechcraft skill level instead for better compatibility with other mods.

These abilities (5 lesser powers; 1 power) are automatically added to the player upon entering the game. They will gain additional effects as the player's Speechcraft skill improves, certain perks are unlocked, or certain conditions are met. They also grant minimal skill XP when used.

The abilities work via temporary spells and magic effects plus conditions, with almost no visual effects and NPC spell reactions. This mod adds only four scripts - one for adding the abilities to the player, one for giving the player Speechcraft XP when the abilities are used, one for a Ceasefire effect, and one for the Subdue effects.
