Breaking the Ice

It's important to make a good impression. The relatively civilized women of Tristram like to engage in polite social interaction. That means you have to talk to them. Here are four good ways to break the ice.

Learn to make conversation
Er, I have to wash my hair that night.

"Uhh... Agh. Grunt. Belch. Duh..."

Compliment her
After a night of boozing it up at Ogden's, his eyes are like rubies too!

"Your eyes are like emeralds / sapphires / rubies.*"

Give her presents
Sigh. "Just put them on the knick-knack shelf with the others. You know, flowers are nice too!"

"I killed a Horned Demon for you. Would you like its testicles?"

Use clever single-entendres
Yes! Yes! Take me now, you huge, smelly hunk of man!

"If I told you you had a beautiful body, would you have sex with me?"

*Succubi just melt when they hear this line!

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you strike out. What do you do when a woman tells you she wouldn't go out with you if you were the last man in the Catacombs? What do you do when she tells you she just wants to be friends? In short, how does a barbarian handle rejection?
