    Due to your past transgressions you have opted to atone by willingly shackling your wrists together, displaying your shame for all the world to see. Although the manacles binding your wrists are non-magical, your last shreds of dignity and honour demand you to uphold your bonds. Although the manacles have enough give for the most rudimentary of tasks they effectively render a persons' arms useless. Your time spent wearing the manacles has been a difficult learning process but they are now very much a part of you and your life; you are still limited in certain areas however.

    Prerequisite: Monk class
    -4 to hit with any weapon except unarmed strikes or natural attacks.
    -2 to grapple, swim, climb, balance and diplomacy checks

    further edit: Reworked the flaw to veer it away from "Vow" status.
    REGAL [email protected]@ had to say it...

    I like a lot of these. I'm not a fan of flaws to begin with, but some of these are cool.

    Feminist looks ok to me. You need to specify what happens in unknown situations. What happens if they're talking with a man dressed up as a woman? Can the character tell which gender that dragon is? stuff like that

    Fury seems rather vague. Horrible too. Can it be resisted? The penalties/limitations seem similar to barbarian rage, but you have to use it anytime you're hit. Also, what happens if two people hit you? Can you attack either, or just the one that most recently attacked you? Finally, when does the rage end?
    hmmm... wonder if I'll ever get a siggy

    Vulnerable to Magic [Flaw]
    Magic is particularly effective against you.
    Effect: You have a -2 penalty to all Fort and Will saves against spells. When subject to spells that allow no save and cause force damage(like Magic Missile)., you take +1 damage/die
    Comments: This might be a bit too bad...I might remove the "increased damage"part. Perhaps I might make it "if you would ever gain Spell Resistance from any source, decrease it by X"instead

    Frail Bones [Flaw]
    Your bones are frail and quite vulnerable to blows.
    Prerequisite: Constitution 13 or below
    Effect: Blunt attacks have a +2 damage bonus against you.
    Comments: Should be ok...blunt attacks are relatively common, so this isn't a "weak"flaw.

    Naive [Flaw]
    You are too trusting.
    Prerequisite: Wisdom 13 or below
    Effect: You have a -4 penalty on Sense Motive checks, and a -2 penalty on all Will saves against Illusion spells.

    Easy to Read [Flaw]
    Your body involountarily shows your intentions.
    Prerequisite: None
    Effect: You have a -4 penalty on Bluff checks. Intelligent opponents gain a +1 AC bonus against you in melee, as they can easily predict what your next movements will be.

    Bad Posture[Flaw]
    You have horrible balance.
    Prerequisite: Dex 13 or below.
    Effect: You have a -4 penalty on alll checks to remain standing - this includes the Balance skill and resisting being bull rushed.

    Slow Healer [Flaw]
    You have problems healing your wounds
    Prerequisite: Con 13 or below.
    Effect: You naturally heal half as fast - that is, 8 hours/a full night rest restores 1 hit point for every 2 characters level you have. Keep track of fractions - at level 1, you will naturally heal 1 HP every 2 days. You also heal 1 point of ability damage every 2 days(rather than just 1).
    When subject to healing spell, the healing you receive is decreases by -2 hit points/die - a Cure Light wounds cast by a level 1 cleric would heal you of only 1d8-1 HP(rather than 1d8+1).

    Limited Weapon Training [Flaw]
    Your neglected your weapon training or were never taught how to use many weapons.
    Prerequisite: Must be proficient with all martial weapons
    Effect: You lose your martial weapon proficiency and gain proficiency with all simple weapons if you do not have it. If you gain martial weapon proficiency from a second class, you instead proficiency with a single type of martial weapon, such as a longsword or a longbow
    Special: You can still qualify for feats and prestige classes as if you had martial weapon proficiency.

    Feminist

    Input?
    Being a feminist just means you think men and women should be equal. I suggest coming up with a different name for it; we get enough bad rap as it is. Oh! And making/allowing a male version :3

    Other then that, I like it. Good for backstories/cultural contexts.

    You are automatically mistrusting of members of the opposite sex, of any race. You feel that they are beneath you in most, if not all, areas. You take a -4 penalty on all Charisma based checks when interacting with members of the opposite sex.
    (does not apply unless one can tell what sex the creature they are interacting with is)

    Better? It also allows for a male version :)

    P.S. Sorry about the feminist thing, I was thinking of a friend of mine when I wrote it. She claims that she's a feminist, but really she just uses it as an excuse to hate guys.

    I think I got what you were saying with the feminist flaw. He was gunning for a really far out there feminist, which is what many people think of when hearing it.

    Limited Training seems like a good flaw. Makes perfect sense to me as well.

    Detached [Trait]
    You aren't affected much by rallies, or very easily taken aback.
    You take half of the effect of all morale bonuses and penalties. You take a -2 penalty to Charisma-based skill checks, but others have a harder time reading you, and so Sense Motive checks against your Bluffs or to get a sense of your emotions are done at a -4 penalty.

    Empathic [Trait]
    You tend to get caught up in the heat of things.
    Subtract 2 from your Will save. Double the effects of all morale bonuses and penalties. In addition, when an ally within 20 feet is affected by a mind-created effect (including Fear effects, as well as Fascination, Confusion, certain Dazzle effects, Nausea, or certain Sickened effects), you suffer or profit from the same effect unless you pass a will save. This also extends to any spells with the [Mind-Affecting] descriptor. Add 2 to all of your Charisma-based skill checks for your ability to connect with people, but add 4 to any Sense Motive checks against you to read your emotions or to detect your bluffs.

    Tales of Symphonia much?

    I think it works better as a vow myself, since it's.... a vow. Can't think of what benefits it would provide though. Probably some bonus against non-living creatures, since you can use your full power against them (if you have played that game, you'll know the scene I'm talking about), or at least innanimate objects. Except it's not particularly exalted.

    Anyway, I'd give it a flat -2 penalty to anything that would require the use of one hand, and -4 if it would normally require two, it's really hard to use your hands if they're bound unless it's a really long chain. Then you could make it a trait and add something like bypass hardness or deal double damage against objects. The prerequisite of monk class actually works against the idea of it as a flaw, since it requires that the person minimize the flaw's effects.

    Of course, this assumes the same kind of vow as Regal's, "I will never kill with these hands again." If you just want someone wearing handcuffs, it's just a flat penalty.

    Restricted Arcana[Flaw]
    Prerequisites: Ability to cast spells
    Choose a school of magic you can cast, all spells of that school are considered one level higher for you, though you still cast them at their normal spell level and save DC. Thus a wizard who chooses enchantment would need a 4th level spell slot to cast suggestion, though it's save DC would still only be 13 + Int modifier.

    Funny, but here's my idea instead...
    Maybe you are so perfect that all other PCs - and NPCs, assuming your DM gives them flaws - who DO have flaws dislike you believing you are extremely arrogant and nasty even if you aren't?
    It's not so rare for really skilled and talented people to be disliked, you know...

    Anyway, what do you people think about my flaws? Vulnerable to Magic/Frail Bones/Naive/Easy to Read/Bad Posture/Slow Healer? Do you feel they are balanced enough? I tried to make them significant enough that they are actually worth a feat, and not juts for show...

    Here's 3 new flaws...

    Lethargic[Flaw]
    You need to sleep a lot to be at your best.
    Prerequisite: Must have the need for sleep
    Effect: If you don't sleep at least ten(rather than eight)hours, you have a -2 penalty to ALL ability and skill checks.

    Unlucky[Flaw]
    You have really bad luck.
    Prerequisite: Must have the need for sleep
    Effect: Rolling a natural 20 does NOT mean automatic success for you. Rolling a natural 2 has the same effect for you as a natural 1 - that is, automatic failure. You can never take any luck-related feats.

    Easily Distracted[Flaw]
    You have trouble concentrating on something for more than a few seconds.
    Prerequisite: None
    Effect: You can't take 20 on skill checks, and on any skill check which requires more than a round(=six seconds)you have a -2 penalty.

    Until the person who does this against a rabid stuffed animal collector. It could be the one they need.
    Let's make some rules for this. Maybe concentration check when you cast a spell in addition to when you cast spells on the defensive, on a failed roll roll on the higher level scroll thing in the DMG?

    Limited Time [Flaw]
    You aren't going to live that long anyway.
    When a character with this flaw reaches middle age, the DM secretly rolls his or her maximum age, which is the number from the Middle Age column on the Aging Effects table in whatever source you're using for the race, plus the result of the dice roll indicated on the Maximum Age column on that table, and records the result, which the player does not know. A character who reaches their maximum age dies of old age at some time during the following year, as determined by the DM.

    I like this one a lot. That's a reasonable but significant penalty that makes good sense in the context of the flaw.

    BRILLIANT.

    Unfortunately, the DCs are a bit high for low levels... I'd suggest dropping the 25s down to 15s, and the 30 down to 20.

    Still room for the errors to happen, but a level 1 campaign won't leave your character as totally ignored.

    Nobody Likes You [Flaw]
    You must make a DC 15 Diplomacy or Intimidate check in order for people to react to anything you do. You also take a -2 penalty to any other Diplomacy and intimidate checks. This doesn't apply to areas where it would be beneficial, such as fighting or getting a free room in an inn.
    Prerequisite: you must be something like this in real life.

    Nobody Thinks You Exist [Trait]
    You either weren't supposed to be born, or you were supposed to die earlier. This is the same as Nobody Likes You, except it can work in your favor. If you attack someone, they will know you exist, but until you do, they don't.
    Note: I'm thinking of making it take a full-round action to get someone's attention instead.

    The DM Hates You [Flaw]
    The universe seems to be conspiring against you. The situations you always seem to get stuck in for no apparent reason are just bad enough to make up for an extra feat.
    Prerequisite: the DM must not like you in real life.
    Special: if you're a munchkin, this flaw also makes up for any meta-game advantages you have.

    Cannot Swim [Flaw]
    You take a 1 on every Swim check. (This is NOT an automatic fail, however.) You still have this flaw even if you put skill ranks into Swim... it just means that you are better at flailing wildly about in a fashion that vaguely resembles swimming.





    I have this flaw in real life, and I didn't even get a cool feat for it.

    Well Endowed [Flaw]
    Prerequisites: Female
    You have particularly large... naughty pillows. You suffer a -1 size penalty to AC, and enemies will be more inclined to engage in a grapple with you. Additionally, All male characters must make a will save (DC: 10) to avoid ignoring everything you say while in a conversation. You also suffer a -2 jealousy penalty to all charisma checks with all female characters who do not have Well Endowed. You also suffer a -4 shame penalty to all charisma checks with male characters who are a member of your family.

    ...Or a feat?

    Weapon Proficiency: Boobs [General]
    Prerequisites: Level 4, Female, Well Endowed Flaw.
    Benefit: You have learned to live with your curse. Nay, profit from it! You may use a standard action to swirl your boobs around in your hands and say "Hey, look! Boobs! Don't you want to pay attention to the girl who has boobs!?"

    Your boobs count as a gaze attack that causes fascination for 1d4 rounds. The will save to negate the effect of your boobs is 20. A character is immune to the effects of your boobs if they succede on the will save by 5 or more. A mirror cannot be used to negate the effect of this gaze attack.

    Female characters, family members, and Dwarven clerics of Thor are immune to this effect.

    A lot of people would question whether these are "Flaws". I wouldn't personally, but I'm sure people would.

    Accident-Prone [Flaw]
    Bad things just tend to happen to those around you. Everyone around you takes a -1 penalty to Reflex Saves (allies, enemies, NPCs, whatever).

    Weak Heart [Flaw]
    You have a dodgy ticker. This gives you a stress limit equal to your constitution modifier. Certain situations increase your stress level for certain amounts of time. See the table below for some stressors (the DM may add more at his or her own discretion);

    Stressors
    {TABLE=head]Stressor|Duration|Change
    Previous heart attack|1 hour|+1
    In combat|As long as combat continues|+1
    Shaken|As long as the effect lasts|+1
    Frightened|As long as the effect lasts|+2
    Panicked|As long as the effect lasts|+3
    Fatigued|As long as the effect lasts|+1
    Exhausted|As long as the effect lasts|+2
    Sneak Attacked|2 Rounds|+3
    Surprised|The round which follows the surprise round|+3
    Surprising News*|1d20 rounds (or 1d20*6 seconds)|+3
    Illness|As long as the effect lasts|+1[/TABLE]
    *What counts as "surprising is up to the DM

    If the character's stress level exceeds their constitution modifier (The maximum level may be no less than 5, no matter how low their constitution score is) they must make a DC 10 Fortitude save (they may sit down and rest as a full action for a +5 bonus). If they succeed on their save then nothing happens, and the most recent stressor (i.e. the one which induced the attack) is ignored. However if they fail they immediately fall prone and are treated as being at 0 hp (with all rules for stabilising them and death applying). If they are stabilised they regain all previous hit points (minus 1d6) and the stressor(s) which induced the attack are ignored. They suffer 2 points of strength damage and 1 point of constitution damage which can be restored with a restore spell or healing 10 points or more damage.
