    In the old larp I was in, only one person walked around in Glabro. His character had Fair Glabro. He was a Bone Gnawer Theurge, so he didn't care about looks.

      Eh. "the majority of PCs" should not be allowed to purchase the Fair Glabro Merit since Merits by design are add-on traits to make your character special. If everyone purchases a single Merit then it's the STs job to say no to a bunch of them.
      Everything else here I agree with.

        ​Actually, it was in there, but it was in a weird place (nowhere near the Rage section) and confusingly, didn't use the term "Permanent Rage". It stated that "ratings" were the basis for dice rolls. The Rage Pool is what fluctuates, and the Rage Rating is the "Permanent Rage".
