Character in my game has Compulsive Nudity Flaw, would this be 5, 10 or 15 point flaw, I was leaning towards 10pt, Male Human (Very Large Human), and setting is in Seattle. Maybe I could see it being 5pt flaw if setting was in San Francisco, Key West or something like that...

It depends on how it manifests and where you are. Alaska, 15 points. Iran, 15 points. Key West, 5. Brazil, no points nyahnyah.gif

Well if you're going this route you should go full out one way or the other.

Sexy female elf.

Or gnarly huge male troll.

let him choose. Remind him, that the consequences will obviously depend on the BP value. For 15 BP, you can arrest him regularly and fill his condition monitor with acid damage

Depends on how often Naked Time comes.

At home, and a few streaking occasions: 5 points.

If the pants come off whenever someone says "Make yourself at home", or any other drop of the hat: 10 points.

If all they have in their wardrobe is body armor: 15 points.

Does it count if he only buys body armor at character creation and depends on his lifestyle for ordinary clothes? 'Cause I do that all the time nyahnyah.gif

Every character made does that. nyahnyah.gif

But, with Attitude, we now hare rules for fashion ranging from cheap street wear to high-end, so that might change my own purchasing habits.

Actually, I made a character (which I will be posting today) who has 18 sets of cheap cotton clothing. Now this might sound really stupid because it is "cheap" clothing, but one of the spells I chose for the character is Fashion.

Yup, turn those cheap clothes into something wonderful. And since it is organic fiber the threshold is 2 lower.

I can't stop imagining a Dwarf Ron Jeremy storming out of the back of an armored step van in middle of an intense fire fight naked and armed to the teeth. "Say hello to my little friend!"

Hell some Celts fought naked. This fragger is a Celt descendant. Gets naked and kicks ass. Also makes for an "exciting" 'Runner in the LA Market.

Also think about this... if you're one of the security goons and you got beaten by this guy would YOU want to admit it? Though you could always say: "But Boss... that fragger was naked! He's crazy and I know that if I did anything he was going to kill me and rape my corpse!"

Use blue-colored NoPaint and bear totem for added fun ^_^

Well, the Berserker has two origins, as far as i remember.
Bear-Serk:Bear-Skin, clad only in Bear-Skins/Pelts.
And Bare-Serk: More or less completely without clothes too.

Just take Mystic Armor to the Max and pray for no bad rolls.

Actually, they were smart doing that. See, clothing at the time was all natural, which means a breeding ground for infection if it gets into wounds. They had a greater survival rate after a battle than their "Civilized" opponents as they had to deal with less infections.

I'm sure they didn't think of it that way. nyahnyah.gif But it was damned smart thinking.

The running at the one guy with a pointy metal stick while he's got a pointy metal stick is still high on the Stupid scale of Macho. But, hey, sometimes a man's gotta do...

That was, actually, very much part of the intimidation factor of the Berserk Warriors of Lore.
People were seeing them take hits that would have felled men one half again their size.
Usually, without so much as a flinch and attacking all the stronger afterwards.

Don't know if the practice continues today, but New Guinea tribesmen used to gather ahead of a raid and whip themselves into a frenzy before attacking. Inability to generate an erection before battle was considered a bad omen.
CanRay
On the flip side of that, fighter pilots during and after the Battle of Britain found themselves unable to get an erection if they were not flying.

The solution? Vacuum cleaner going under the bed.

Some Celtic tribes used erections to cow their foes, with a similar stigma against staying soft.

Going into battle naked with a "raging" boner (hehe) doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do. You might come out missing something.

Yeah, back then all you had for replacing lost limbs were pegs. Peg leg. Peg arm. Peg face. Peg...

If we're going to start talking about pegging, I'm going home.

And this is coming from the guy that keeps bringing up Bubba the Love Troll!

Pinocchio wasn't a puppet brought to life, he was a badass warrior who had every part of him replaced with pegs over the course of years.

Compulsive behaviour [Nudity]...This is one of those ideas that I would have blown out of the sky as a GM. And I'd have done it the second I heard about it. IMO that idea isn't fun, it's just stupid. If this had been Vampire the Masquerade, I'd have expected something like that from a "Fishmalk" (if you don't know what that means, just let it rest with the fact that it's not a compliment...).

It's certainly going to be a handicap, but IMO it just flies in the face of the setting. And that particular type of compulsion could easily get a runner killed, if the urge should come at the wrong time. And look at the character from the perspective of potential employers and coworkers! Are you really going to hire some nutjob that is know for going "au natural" in public? Or do you really want to work with the freak that can't control his/her compulsion to prance around naked in public? Sorry, but I'm not putting my life in the hands of someone that can't even manage the "discipline" to keep their kit on in public. What if the urge to strip should happen on a run for Christ's sake! Can you see envision it!? In the middle of a firefight with a security team, or while we're waiting for the hacker to crack the security of the target system. BAM Freakazoid goes into streaker mode! No f'ing way I'm working with that nut!!!

Depending on how you want to play it, and how your GM's going to play it, I'd rate it as 15, and I'd make sure that the other PC's would of a type that would be willing to work with a nut like that.


Anyway...Hope you'll have fun
