Optional Rules – Flaws


“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without. “

-Confucius, Analects


No-one is perfect, despite what certain stuck-up paladins think. It’s the flaws in all of us, the things that are not right that make us interesting. It would be a boring world if we were all the same and perfect. Safe…but boring.


Presented here are 50 flaws (and a quick system  for using them) . For the most part fairly suitable for both fantasy and sci-fi/modern games, with the exception of the sub charts.

Some systems have complicated systems of merits and flaws to create more rounded characters, ones who have disadvantages balanced with other advantages. If you find these too much to administer, or your chosen ruleset doesn't have one, this is worth a [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
