  • Merits that give Merits -- still the cheesiest mechanic ever.

    It's interesting that whenever these threads crop up, no one ever considers Chronicle length. If you're going to play a dozen sessions and move on, then Merits are going to be a better choice*. You have to play long-term for the cost benefit of Gnosis to make a difference. Flip side?
