Description
Fast Metabolism
Fast Metabolism
Your metabolic rate is twice normal. That means that you are much less resistant to radiation and poison, but your body will heal faster.
Bruiser
Bruiser
A little slower but a little bigger. You may not hit as often but enemies will feel it when you do! Your total action points are lowered but you do more melee damage.
Small Frame
Small Frame
You are not quite as big as the other vault-dwellers, but that never slowed you down. You can't carry as much but you are more agile.
One Hander
One Hander
One of your hands is very dominant. You excel with single handed weapons but two-handed weapons cause a problem.
Finesse
Finesse
Your attacks show a lot of finesse. You don't do as much damage but you cause more critical hits.
Kamikaze
Kamikaze
By not paying attention to any threats you can act a lot faster in a turn. This lowers your armor class to just what you're wearing, but your sequence is much faster in a combat turn.
Heavy Handed
Heavy Handed
You swing harder, not better. Your attacks are very brutal but lack finesse. You rarely cause a good critical hit but you always do more melee damage.
Fast Shot
Fast Shot
You don't have time to aim for a targeted attack, because you attack faster than normal people. It costs you one less action point to use a weapon.
Bloody Mess
Bloody Mess
By some strange twist of fate, people around you die violently. You always see the worst way a person can die. My favorite.
Jinxed
Jinxed
The good thing is that everyone around you have more critical failures in combat. The bad thing is so do you.
Good Natured
Good Natured
You studied less combative skills as you were growing up. Your combat skills start at a lover level but Fist aid, Doctor, Speech and Barter are substantially improved.
Chem Reliant
Drug Reliant
You are more easily addicted to drugs. Your chance to be addicted to a drug is twice normal, but you recover faster from their ill effects.
Chem Resistant
Drug Resistant
Drugs only affect you half as long as normal, but your chance to be addicted is also only 50% of normal.
Sex Appeal
Sex Appeal
You've got the "right stuff". Members of the opposite sex are attracted to you, but those of the same sex tend to become quite jealous.
Skilled
Skilled
Since you spent more time improving your skills than a normal person, you gain more skill points. The tradeoff is that you do not gain as many extra abilities. You will gain a perk every 4 levels.
Gifted
Gifted
You have more innate abilities than most, so you have not spent as much time honing your skills. Your statistics are better than the average person, but your skills are lacking.
