Traits

Traits are modifiers, positive and negative, available to player. Some traits are chosen individually (indicated here as 'positive' and 'negative' traits) and players are also given one or more traits, also known as occupation perks, associated with his/her choice of occupation.

The individually-chosen traits must have a sum value of 0 (or less) in order to start the game, so if the player chooses positive traits, they are also required to choose negative ones to compensate.

Traits categorized as "Mutually Exclusive" cannot be taken simultaneously (e.g. If you take "Deaf" you cannot take "Hard of Hearing" or "Keen Hearing" too).

Occupation-oriented traits (perks) cost no points, but the player must select one (and only one) occupation.
