YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE ANY MERITS OR FLAWS AT ALL These are character building options meant to increase role-playing opportunities. If you don't want them, don't take them.

If you do want them, they are listed in the player's handbook (pp.303ff) or the Victorian Age book (pp. 126-7) and only these are acceptable in the first instance for neonates. Elders and Ancillae may take merits or flaws from expansion books if they like.

[House Rule seven - ordinarily you would be restricted to no more than 7 points total in either category - merits being purchased with your freebie points and flaws adding to your freebie point pool. I am scrapping this rule. Instead, you may have as many flaws or merits as you are willing to play (and I will be watching you on this point) provided the total for the other category is no more than seven points (7 points) less. For example, choose 7 flaw points and you need have no merits (or vice versa), choose 8 flaw points and you must have at least 1 merit point (or vice versa), choose 15 flaw points if you want, but you must have no less than 8 merit points. This means that merit purchases will never cost you more than 7 freebie points or flaw selections will never bring you greater benefit than 7 additional building points.

Depending on your background description, I may assign merits and flaws as I think appropriate at no cost to you. You may object to these additions, of course, and I will consider your objections seriously.

Because I said so!
