Game news:Character Creation
A character may buy up to two additional Merit dots at character creation by taking one or two Flaws. A list of available Flaws may be found here, but note that any Flaw will require the approval of staff, to make sure that it fits the character. These are permanent, but may be bought off if they no longer suit the character concept. Such buy-offs will be arbitrated on a case-by-case basis with sphere staffers. These points gained through flaws cannot be used to increase your character's power stat (Blood Potency, Primal-Urge, Wyrd, Psyche, etc.) above 3 at chargen.
Chargen merits may only be purchased with chargen dots, not with CG XP.
