Volume 6 Issue 181 - Character Flaws

This week RFI is back and cover character flaws and how to integrate them in your game, to add depth to your characters and tell memorable stories. From there we talk a quick dash over to the Creature Feature as we cover the Quickling. After that hopefully we’ll be able to stop hitting ourselves as we cover the Mirror of Opposition in the Treasure Chest. We have all of that and more in this weeks issue of Roll For Initiative.

Good episode, getting back into the tried and trusted format, but needs more Blackstone!

Character "flaws" should really just relate to attributes for 1e, later versions start playing about with "points" until you approach something like GURPS.

I think the best way to introduce flaws is to apply them to regular magical items in the same way as artifacts have minor malevolent effects (DMG 162 Table III).  It would balance out the advantage of an item nicely.
