Haha, it was only going to screw you guys over if one of them botched. Basically difficulty 0. Don't Botch since it was a rather simple action with everyone entranced towards the middle of the room. And I am glad you rolled well with using the excellency.
Well, like I said in character, hack and slash looks out -- besides Baron almost certainly two orders of magnitude above all of us us combined, there's too many goons. I'm hoping Mommut has some decent social combat numbers.
