So our group came up against a couple of cybernetically enhanced Nexu today. After ambushing the hasty Bothan in the group, the one Nexu picked him up in his jaws and started to shake him around.
So, the group's Force Senstive diplomat wanted to use Influence to scare off the Nexu. I couldn't find anything in the rules that says he couldn't do this. Still, using the Force on the mind of a beast seems a bit more difficult, so I just upgraded his difficulty once.
So, have we missed something? Can Influence be used on animals?
