Go with Jeff. :-) If the PCs still cannot figure it out (we once had a large argument over sneaking around a village or through it and ended up trying to intimidate, seduce and threaten our Vingan) then you would use a contest between the two relevant skills. In this case the Issaries' Lie and the Humakti's Honour(?).
