Talk is a skill featured in the Fear & Hunger series, where players can engage in conversations with their adversaries within the context of a typical battle and with party members outside of combat. This mechanic serves as a consistent and integral feature of the series, appearing in both of its entries.

Obtained

In both Fear & Hunger and Fear & Hunger 2: Termina, Talk is an exclusive skill inherent to the player character, automatically acquired from the start of the game.

Mechanics

Using Talk in battle will trigger a dialogue prompt if the enemy is willing to interact with the player. In both games, nearly every enemy presents opportunities for interaction. Various dialogue choices can yield favorable results, such as causing the enemy to skip turns, refrain from using specific attacks, bestow items upon the player, facilitate peaceful or effortless resolution of the battle, or unveil additional lore. Conversely, opting for certain dialogue options may lead to adverse consequences. Using Talk during battle does not interrupt the conflict by default; both your fellow party members and the enemy will continue their actions as usual, even if they choose to respond to the conversation.

Both games also feature dedicated skills that synergize with Talk in-battle, broadening its range of possibilities. For specific details on these skills, including their respective effects, please refer to the next sections in this article.

In Fear & Hunger, Talk also serves as a means for players to engage with their party members in non-combat situations. The dialogue primarily adds flavorful context to the game's lore, and the content of these interactions varies depending on the specific map or location the player character is currently exploring. In Fear & Hunger 2: Termina, Talk is exclusively reserved for use during battles. However, a new skill called Party talk is introduced to provide communication with teammates in non-combat situations.
