The character has circumstances in their personal lives that can inconvenience them in during a session. What the handicap is is less important than how frequently it comes into play and what consequences the character will face if they don't address it.

Frequency Edit

How often a social handicap comes into play factors into the value of the complication. The more often a character has to address their personal life, the more the complication is worth.

Frequency

Value

Description

Rare

-5

The character's complication is so minor or specific that it will hardly ever come in during a session.

Infrequent

The character has to address their issue at least once every 4 sessions.

Frequent

5

The handicap has to deal with their problem regularly, usually once every other session.

Constant

10

The character has put up with this issue nearly daily, meaning it will come up every single session.

Consequences Edit

Some personal issues require more attention than others, and failure to address them can have dire consequences. The more harmful the effects of not dealing with their problems, the more points the character's social handicap is worth. If the character doesn't address their Social Handicap, the Game Master may force the player to replace it with another complication of the Game Master's design, if only temporarily.
