    or Cyc's idea was that we could start at chivalry (samurai) then run parrelel with the tech tree when the demogam catches up.

    So is there a limit on flaws? It would be pretty interesting to have a charactor with more flaws than merits.

    Really! That would be way too much like a real human to work in an RPG like this. :lol:

    the limit is 3 merits/flaws the rule is to have 3 merits you must have 3 flaws, there is however nothing stopping you from having 1 merit and 3 flaws if you really want it like that?

    Yeah, you can choose 3 flaws and not have a single merit if you really wanted to, you might as well take the merits also though. I think that the flaws make your character much more interesting and dynamic than the merits.

    I think RPG characters that train for the Art of War in The Training Room should get an increase in the combat skills they train for. An extra point or two could be given to those that make... let's say 1 trip to the Training Room a week. The point(s) would be given at the end of the calendar month.

    Only thing about that Cyc is that we do not want to have to make the RPG more of a hassle than anything else. We want it to be mostly self-running. Having skill changes to much requires organization and someone to organize it.

    Also, I'm strongly opposed to it because it is unfair to some newer characters who join.
