Hah.

I would say I'd delete, but I'd be pked within 20 minutes so I'd get a vet 6 package instead.

I think most people are just out to have fun.

Losing can be fun. Being the underdog can be fun.

Losing every single time and having no chance of winning while struggling every step of the way, is not fun. And that is what keeping a shitty roll is.

This point is a very good one, and your example further on about fear of magic supports it well. I would personally prefer traits be handled more like I play around with mine; gullible is the flaw I picked with the most noticeable mechanical effect, and while I was aware of the magic flaw's effects, I wasn't aware it was quite so extreme.

Mechanically speaking, I'd at least allow a willpower check or the equiv to use a tear, for example, if I was coding it.

Don't get me wrong, thanks for actually thinking about an role playing that trait. Most people cast it aside after they pick it. But... it's still not something that cripples your character.
I agree, though if it makes you feel better, it did result in a nearly a decade of mild-to-moderate irritation on my part.

Agreed. *sigh*

You can only win the game if you learn swords.

Crap I don't and have never used swords.
Too many options to train. It makes me angry in my heart. I like to keep it simple.

All you combat guys who dont have AR should shut up !!! You all have nimble feet and steady hands because you rolled to start with damn near Inhuman dex and agility, and now you cant roll almost inhuman dex and agilty so if you nerf AR everybody who has nimble feet or steady hands needs to have about 70 points taken from your agility or dex stat or both if you have both traits...

My guy suffered for years not having the top end stats that he could have started with if I would have just kept rolling and rolling and I could have used the same name over and over too!!!.... That being said the one good choice I made was AR and all those times I got my arse kicked more than probobly most of you AR at least kept it interesting...
