A Face (colloquially called a pornomancer) is a person that specializes in social skills.
A Face's role is to talk for a team of Shadowrunners. They will usually negotiate pay from a Mr. Johnson, act as a distraction, talk their way past security, and offer tactical advice for a team in combat situations.
A Face is often made from other archetypes that just so happen to specialize in social skills.
- Commonly physical adepts make good faces. Since a number of adept powers increase their ability to read people's body language.
- Shamans can often double dip on charisma since their tradition emphasises charisma. Other magicians whose tradition is charisma based are also as good.
- A cyber Face will often take tailored pheromones to help improve people's reception to them within smelling range.
- A technomancer can emulate Empathy software without the other party realizing that they're being analyzed. And in SR5 charisma also acts as a technomancer's Matrix attack status.
