Character traits

From Heat Signature Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Player characters can have positive and/or negative traits that modify the way they play. These do not have to be balanced; some characters may have a very strong selection of traits while another may have a debilitating selection.

Positive traits reduce glory from Glory Missions, while negative traits increase glory.
