## I Know A Guy

### Source

David Nett [does this](https://www.sageadvice.eu/i-know-a-guy-house-rule/).

> Because a few ppl have asked about my house rule, “I Know a Guy:” it’s meant to create that moment in ESB when Han decides he can go to Lando for help, but isn’t 100% sure how Lando will actually receive him.

### Discussion

This sounds cool, and allows for players to do the thing.
I'll allow it.

### Ruling

> In any situation (where it makes sense), a PC can declare “I know a guy,” and then quickly sketch that NPC & the relationship.
> Fewer details are usually better — that leaves room for the DM & PCs to play.
> Upon declaration, the NPC exists.
> Then, when the PCs try to interact [with] the NPC, the player who created that NPC makes a Charisma roll to see how the NPC reacts.
