Trait Restrictions

Good day,

I am starting a PbP BE game, and the following question was posed: Why do restricted Traits have a point cost? For example, Your Grace is a 7 pt trait but is restricted to those with the Born to Rule lifepath. If you’re already in that lifepath, it should only cost one point. Under what circumstances do you have to spend the 7 pts?


So you can judge their value for trait votes and the trait burner.

Also necessary for things like Art Magic (which can grant traits based on their cost) and a variety of Natural Magic skills where the Ob is based on Trait cost.

No magic in a BE game, I hope!

D’oh! Mea culpa–I obviously didn’t read carefully.
