Now, how long are combat rounds in your game?
Companion: Hail, hydra.
Or an alcoholic monk?
For that matter, how many use quirks and the like when playing an NPC. Such as, say, vrocks who have taken up Sufi Islam?
Player: I want to play an 80-year-old human noble. He's the second-born son and has just inherited lands, wealth, and station when his elder brother died of pneumonia four months ago, so he doesn't know what all his assets are quite yet. Prior to inheriting, he's been living as a traveler on a generous stipend which has allowed him to travel the world seeking its most beautiful sights - mountains, magnificent beasts, and the occasional safari when he was younger, but his interests have turned more towards architecture and women as he's aged and become less able to handle the physical demands of the untamed wilderness.
There. Done. Took maybe five minutes and required no mechanics at all.
A world with all that it holds truly is a boundless place... so why is it necessary to circumscribe it with detailed rules governing what characters can be created?
Then I've got another batch of quirks to do, and I'll need to arrange them according to trait, social class, and other criteria. The typical Mythus HP has the potential of having a lot of quirks to play with, and/or blight his life.
