Is Lore and Advanced Lore only usable on NPC/World topics? For instance, if I wanted to use contacts to find out information about a PC's past or employment would that be a legal use of the skill?
I feel my bones: the strength,
I feel my muscle; the strength,
I feel my soul; the strength,
I feel the Sept,
Who grant me grace,
And by Their will: strength.

Yes, that is allowable -- but it's not a magic bullet. The GMs will work with the PC in question to figure out what's public knowledge and what's unlikely to rise to the surface based on who's requesting the info. And depending on the PC's backstory, and your PC's contacts, you may come up empty.

Generally, we're never going to allow Lore to be used against another PC. We're never going to divulge information about a PC that the player of that PC doesn't want divulged.

In the past, when we received Lore requests like this, we went directly to the player being "Lored" and asked them how they'd like it answered. So, clearly, if you're trying to dig dirt, this can backfire spectacularly...
