tangmcgame Posted December 19, 2012 Share Posted December 19, 2012 (edited) My idea for Quirks is that they are traits you pick when you start a game that change the way you play. They all include a benefit and a drawback. You are not required to select them, and at most you could pick three per game. Not all Quirks would be available to all characters. Examples are included below to give you an idea of what I had in mind.1/16th Werewolf on Your Mother's SideSome in your family brag. Others keep it a dark secret. But one of your great-great-great-great-grandrelatives was a werewolf. According to legend, he or she was otherwise very polite and a generous humanitarian. Err...maybe "humanitarian" isn't the best word to use. Your health naturally regenerates at night, but when you eat vegetables or fruit you lose sanity. Also, on the full moon you quickly lose sanity.*Ahem* Thick-BonedHusky. Large. Bulky. These are the euphemisms you've clung to all your life to avoid being honest with yourself. You've got an appetite, no doubt, and the frame to prove it. Your maximum Hunger and Health are increased, but you receive less benefit from eating food.Childish at HeartSome people are childlike what with their sense of wonder at the world enormous. You are too, sure, but you're also just plain childish, whining about how hungry you are, how tired you are. Waah, waah, waah. You lose sanity much slower but you lose hunger much faster.Entomological EnthusiastTechnically, you like all bugs, not just insects, but you're an Entomologist, darnit! Of course, your enthusiasm has led to some nasty stings and your nervous system has never fully recovered from the beating it's taken, what with all those venomous animals you like to cuddle with. You take less damage from insects or arachnids, but your maximum health is lower.FrailbodiedYou were sick a lot as a child. You didn't get to play outside much, either. On the plus side, you don't need as much to live on. On the other hand, you find it harder to live. You receive more benefit from eating food, but your maximum health and hunger are reduced.SlackerYou'll never be a very successful person, but that doesn't bother you too much. You do exactly as much as you need to, and since you've gotten pretty good at taking shortcuts on jobs, you usually do even less than that! Structures you build require slightly fewer materials, but you can take no actions at night except to eat, sleep or fuel a fire.Painfully MeticulousWhy do something in five minutes when you could take an hour and get it right? There are definitely benefits to taking your time, but do you really have to take so much of it? You may make up to five notations anywhere on your map, but constructing tools and structures takes three times longer.VegantarianistWhat sort of sick, twisted, demented jerk would kill and eat a cute, innocent animal? Those hounds just wanted to be friends! And anyone who even thinks about killing a bunny is a merciless psychopath who deserves to burn. You receive more benefit from eating vegetables but you lose sanity for attacking mammals or eating meat.
