Character Flaws Available

Flaws are like the flip side of feats. Whereas a feat enables a character to be better than normal at performing a task (or even to do something that normal characters can't), a flaw restricts a character's capabilities or imposes a penalty of some sort.

Unlike traits, flaws are entirely negative in their impact on a character's capabilities. A player may select one flaw when creating a character. When you select a flaw, you receive a bonus feat from the following list:

- Aberrant Dragonmark (see me)
- Alertness
- Favored In House (see me)
- Improved Initiative
- Least Dragonmark (see me)
- Mounted Combat
- Skill Focus
- Skill Training
- Weapon Proficiency
