Beyond skills and attributes, characters have qualities—both positive
and negative—that affect them in specific game terms. Qualities range
from Magician (which provides a character access to magic in the Sixth
World) to Bad Luck (which turns her own Edge against her).
Positive qualities must be purchased during character creation,
whereas negative qualities provide more points to be used during character
generation. A complete list of qualities and their effects can be
found, starting on p. 90.
Characters may not purchase more than 35 BP worth of Positive
qualities or take more than 35 BP worth of Negative qualities.
