So, I had this idea and OP said I should poll it to the masses to see if we should actually set up some kind of guidelines for it.
The concept is essentially allowing writers to create their own unique character specific perks for characters they write. Now we can all see where this can go awry, with people giving characters perks that allow immunity to the elements or certain types of damage etc.. But there's also potential to add some different flavors to characters. Two existing examples are on the characters Hoodlum and Eric Haganey, who have the perks Shotgun Diplomacy and Old World Values respectively. I think that, with the proper guidelines, this could be a fun addition to the character creation process.
Now I think a few ground rules should be discussed on the subject, just to get the ball rolling, I think one perk per character seems fair. Can't go around creating an arsenal of tailor made perks for every Joe and Nancy the writer base makes am I right?
