Feature: Million Dollar Idea

You have the next big thing, and you have a knack for getting others onboard. You can always find someone to listen to your idea, whether at a bar, in a boardroom, on the bus, or on the internet. People who've heard your idea usually like you. These supporters will help you with information or services, and might even put you up for a few nights. At the GM's discretion, when you share your idea with someone and fail a Charisma check, that person might avoid you in later encounters.
