Merits + Flaws


General rulings on Merits and Flaws for Garou and Kinfolk characters are below, organized by type.  This list is taken from Werewolf: the Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition and is by no means considered exhaustive.  I have only taken note of traits that are considered Limited, Restricted, or Banned in this system.  Most Merits and Flaws from all canon materials will be approved or denied on a case-by-case basis according to Admin discretion.  Please remember to note that no Instant Approval characters may have any Merits or Flaws.

Please bear in mind that Merits and Flaws which according to canon require a significant involvement by a storyteller will not oblige the Admin to create, manage, and play NPCs and storylines centered around your character's Merits or Flaws.  These traits will usually fall into the 'Limited' or 'Restricted' categories and may necessitate discussions with the Admin on how they will be handled in play.

As judgement calls create precedence for various rulings, this page will be updated.  I will notify the player base of changes and additions (including changes in a Merit or Flaw's approval level) in the Latest Announcements thread as needed.
 
 
The approval levels below are defined as follows:
General - There is currently no notation on these Merits and Flaws.  This does not mean that they will be automatically approved, or approved for every submission where they are requested.  If not otherwise noted, most Merits and Flaws fall into this category.
Limited - Depending on the current demographics of the system, these Merits and Flaws will be approved for a smaller number of characters.  This may be due to the implied rarity of such traits, or simply on over-saturation in the system.
Restricted - These Merits and Flaws are less likely to be approved and must be justified convincingly by the character's history and overall concept.  Even then, they may not be approved for the same reasons as Merits and Flaws that are considered Limited.
Banned - At this time, these Merits and Flaws are not approvable for any reasons.  Please do not submit characters with these traits, as they will automatically disqualify the character from approval until they are removed from the sheet.
