Rules and Exceptions

These are the "Rules" of the world - the understandings by which the Arba and Nikan live their lives.

Each player character is an Exception to one of the rules. You should choose one for your character and note it on your character sheet. No two characters should break the same rule, so check with each other to see which one your friends are choosing.

You should also select one of the Traits listed underneath your Exception, and write that Trait on your sheet.
