This mod adds a flaw and virtue system to the game. Flaws grant an additional 1-2 trait points to a leader. Virtues cost 2 to 3 trait points and are as good as 3 or 4 traits. This is designed around the game’s default of 1 trait point of leaders and 2 for rulers. Any given leader can only have 1 flaw. At the moment the game still makes selctions at random so this exists to increase variance.

Using this with mods that increase the number of trait points leaders get, will allow them to have virtues without needing to have flaws. So use this with those are your own whim.
