Even as characters can have Feats that give them particular aptitudes and enhance their various skills and capabilities, so too can they suffer from Defects that negatively affect their ability to function. Such Defects can be used to make games more fun and unpredictable, and even more plausible.
The Jester Dragon’s Guide to Defects is a complete sourcebook that details hundreds of character flaws, mental disorders, physical abnormalities, medical conditions, and outright quirks that DMs and players can use to liven up their characters and campaigns. This book contains:
* More than 230 Defects, from minor faults to fatal flaws.
* Defects appropriate for any genre, including High Fantasy, Swords-and-Sorcery, and Space Opera.
* Innovative “Metagame” Defects that can affect players as well as their characters.
* Additional rules for potion miscibility, wearing glasses, and phobias.
* More than 30 humorous cartoon illustrations.
This book was inspired by concepts introduced in the best-selling Nuisances: Director's Cut. We very much hope you will find it to be useful and enjoyable!
