Handicaps

Posted on at

Handicaps are the term used in the T13 RPG for the flaws of a Character. Handicaps are combined with Personality and Core Facets to produce a Personality Annex. Handicaps can also be used to reduce the costs of Descendants. You should read the Handicaps rules before selecting a Handicap, to have a clear understanding of the Bane points system and limits on Handicap Boons.
