QuoteI want the mechanical incentive of choosing one option over the other to be weak enough that you don't feel stupid for choosing a "suboptimal" one because you have a cool idea for narration that uses a particular combo of traits
QuoteI think trying to make all options roughly the same but not quite, still means your making sub optimal choices if you look at it from a pure mechanics/hardcore standpoint, it'll just be less of a sub optimal choice.
Quote(d) How do you choose which trait to use, among the list of those your PC possess? - I'm trying to obtain maximum (mechanical) effectiveness - I'm trying try to reveal something new about my PC - I'm trying to bring to the table the theme/issue that I hardwired to my PC by choosing this trait - I'm trying to choose the trait that preserves the most stringent consequentiality/coherence of the fiction
