    Default A Devout Athiest?

    What a strange mix of traits.
    Have any of you ever had an odd combinations of Vices & Virtues?

    "Famously brave good runner" comes to mind

    The other day I was playing my turkish- campaing nad tried to bribe a tiny garrison that I was besieging. I failed the first try, but the second one succeeded. Result was pretty interesting: a man of principle with weak principles

    This is the norm in MTW, it makes no sense but is how the game was designed. Luckily some of those traits can serve to cancel each other out. Such as a virtue giving +1 morale and a vice giving -1.

    The combinations mentioned above, such as man of principle + weak principles, famously brave + good runner and true believer + atheist are all common ones. With the latter being quite a common set of traits for those that have been tried by the inquistion a few times.

    This is not from any of my games, but anyway. I think I found it here on the Org somewhere...

    It's not easy being a man, you know. I had to get dressed today... And there are other pressures.

    What about a moral flexible (-30% bribe cost) unbribable (+200% bribe cost) one?

    Or a man of principle with weak principles, that's also a secret fanatic and a secret ateist?
    We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

    One of my favorites was a prince from one of my Byzantine campaigns. He was a Gentle Knight, yet was also a Secret Blood Lover.
