Character Data

These Disadvantages finish off a character by giving them something to work off. You have 1D of Advantages available at character generation. After that 1D is spent you can take a disadvantage to gain more dice to invest in advantages. When purchasing with Disadvantages you are required to purchase as many dice worth as their Advantages -1D.
