Dungeons & Dragons: Character Drawbacks

Character Drawbacks

Variant system for allowing character flaws.

Publisher's blurb: "In literature and popular culture, characters are often defined by their faults than their abilities. Othello was gullible, and this enabled Iago to manipulate him. Han Solo was notable for his mercenary attitude. Captain Hook is remembered for... well, his hook. These faults, or drawbacks, lend color to the characters that have them. This d20 MasterKit product is designed to add these drawbacks to player characters.

"Often, drawback systems tend to grant the player an extra Feat in return for taking a drawback, making starting player characters a bit more powerful. This can seriously unbalance a campaign. Character Drawbacks resolves this problem by granting skill points for each drawback instead of an extra Feat.

"It is a common complaint among players that they never have enough skill points to accurately reflect what their characters know. Using this system allows for more skills to detail the character... but with the skill level caps still in place, player characters will not be seriously overpowered. Drawbacks are designed to add a little spice to a character concept and offer the player appropriate and significant compensation for taking them, not to create headaches for the Game Master."
