Flaws

Link Back: Character Creation

Merits and Flaws are optional Traits that a Storyteller may choose to include, or prohibit, in her chronicle. Properly used, Merits and Flaws help players create and individualize their characters. Merits are special abilities or advantages that are rare or unique in the general Kindred population, while Flaws are liabilities or disadvantages that pose challenges to a character’s nightly existence. These Traits can provide player characters with added depth and personality, but Storytellers should be careful to ensure that any Traits chosen will not adversely influence the course of the chronicle or give one character an unfair advantage over the rest.

Refer to these pages if needed.

l2fury (Some of the Merits and Flaws in this listing are designed for Mages or hunters, pay attention to what you are looking at.)

Many Merits and Flaws are limited to certain clans or Mortals. In many cases I am not following this ruling. As such I am not listing these limitations.
