I like the face archetype as a character, he doesn't need to be the team lead, nor does he need to be constantly talking but he does need to have that sway to get you in and out of places. If you can't talk your way past a bouncer into a club, there's something seriously wrong with you "face".
As a Face, you need to be proactive, you need to be creative, you need to be active. A Face is not a passive waiting for things to happen role. In my opinion, a Face needs more than just the social dice pool.
