In this term and game mechanics are combined all character traits, that are permanent throughout the game - unlike Conditions, traits can never be gained, nor lost, after character's creation.
Traits can be divided and three groups - professions, negative traits and positive traits.
Some combinations of traits are set as impossible, in case their are contradictory either in logical or gameplay terms.
Traits are listed in the third tab of the Character screen, which can be opened from the Avatar hub in the top right corner.
Professions[edit | edit source]
The professions differ from the other two groups in their exclusivity - a character can never have two professions. Also, professions usually combine several game-effects, some of which might be negative.
