Merits and Flaws Guidelines

Note that your character may take Merits and Flaws from a venue not his own as long as that Merit or Flaw is not venue specific and/or it is not from a specific Clan/Tribe/Tradition book that is not affiliated with your character. Also the Merit of Flaw must be applicable to his own venue and creature type. For example, a Kindred would not be able to take the flaw Chronic Illness as it is not applicable to his venue or his creature type.

All Merits and Flaws should make sense to the character’s concept and have an explanation in the character’s history. They should be intrinsic to the character concept.

For example: A computer hacker concept can reasonably take a Computer Aptitude Merit and explain in the character history that the character has always been obsessed with computers and illustrate the whys and wherefores and hows. However, the hacker would struggle to justify also having the Enchanting Voice Merit.

Mortals may not take any Merit or Flaw that has even a tinge of the supernatural about it even if it the Merit or Flaw can crossover between supernatural venues.

Please consider that some Merits and Flaws are missing because they are covered by another Trait such as Backgrounds.

For example: Enemy is covered by the Enemy Adversarial Background.

IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION: Unless specifically stated (as in the Merit Greater Colours), no Aptitude, or aptitude-like merit that confers a diff adjustment or dice pool adjustment to a mundane ability confers that adjustment to the difficulty of a supernatural power. They are intended to give bonus to mundane actions, not to make supernatural powers (which are something else entirely) easier to activate. For example, Bruiser will not give Dominate rolls or rolls for Gifts like the Visage of Fenris a lower difficulty.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON FLAWS: Be extremely careful on the flaws you choose for your character. They should never be taken lightly. Be prepared for STs to enforce them in unexpected and cruel ways. That flaw you never thought would apply or that you thought you could get away with paying lip service to will be your character's bane. We STs guarantee it.
