I am toying with a new idea.


During character creation you can pick a flaws and or virtues.  You pick something that exists in the real world,  like weakness or superpowers but actual real things.   Then you pick the severity of the vitue or flaw.   You then get bonus points or negative points based on what you pick.

Ok so it will work like this;


You pick the flaw  SHY -3.  This means when applicable you will have a -3 in social situations due to shyness.   To make up for this flaw, you get three points to allocate during character creation.  You can treat these points as bonus points.


Virtues work opposite.  You get something like Handsome +4  You get a bonus in applicable situations and get a +4 on your rolls but you suffer -4 points on your starting stats at character creation.

You pick the flaw, or vitue AND you pick the number.  But you are stuck with it AND make damn sure I will find a way to stick it to you!

Between Charisma and Humanity, wouldn't this kind of be covered already? Even some weaknesses are similar to this.

You can pick things like, OCD -5 to get five bonus points to allocate during character creation. Keeping in mind I will use it against you whenever I can.  Itís like picking a minor weakness or minor power for role play or in your case, Munchkining, at creation.

OHHH extra bonus points during character creation?  Ok now it makes sense. Love it.

So if I pick ass-licking +5 I would lose 5 bonus points (becasue I have to use them) but can use my skill in prison?

Similar to the quirks I already give some of my characters but now I can gain from it.

I am able to get the body I want by simply mailing away to this Charles Atlas guy (there's an ad in a comic book of mine).

We used this during character creation in the Pirates campaign. It really worked out great. Gave the base PCs some fun with bonuses and gave John the chance for full punishment and use of our flaws. PCs playing the flaws great as well to enhance the role playing
