So I have hit a pretty big character development turning point, which may result in the potential situation where some of the Hindrances I currently have, just don’t fit the character any more.
I have already done this once (sort of), with a Minor Hindrance – my PC used to be an Alcoholic. However, the GM allowed me to remove this by way of attending AA meetings, etc. So long as I continue to prove my abstinence, I no longer “suffer” from alcoholism.
However, a story development has come up where The Character has potentially “made the choice” to actively change their outlook. This is in regards to the “Heroic” Hindrance:
Your hero never says no to a person in need. She doesn’t have to be happy about it, but she always comes to the rescue of those she feels can’t help themselves. She’s the first one to run into a burning building, usually agrees to hunt monsters for little or no pay, and is generally a pushover for a sob story.
To summarize, the story has gone that there have been glimpses into the future where a person has ended up enslaving the PC for their abilities. And now, even though it appears that particular future has been avoided, others are now invested in attempting to use him for other means.
His outlook is that he will no longer tolerate this potential, and will do whatever it takes to stop it from happening. So, I am thinking of swapping from “Heroic”, to “Vengeful (Major)”
Your character always attempts to right a wrong he feels was done to him. If this is a Minor Hindrance, he usually seeks vengeance legally. If this is a Major Hindrance, he’ll kill to see it done.
So my question is; can I “switch” my Hindrances, in RAW/RAI? If so, what effect(s) does this have on my character?
