On Social Surprise Attacks

A social surprise attack is a social attack that the target doesn’t realize is a social attack. It has nothing to do with sudden dramatic revelations or anything like that, because those are obviously social attacks. A surprise social attack isn’t your vizier (or Vizier) leaning over and whispering into your ear. A surprise social attack is your friend venting about ‘those damn Immaculates’ while you have tea and you just nod along and don’t even realize that your Intimacy (Immaculate Faith – Obedience) has taken a hit.
