Game Data Strategy

This is a technical list of all the traits and what they do, just in case the trait selection screen isn't good enough for you.

All effects stack additively (so that three ranks in Ironman will give 30 additional HP), unless said otherwise. Multiple percentage modifiers (for example, Finesse and Son of a Gun) are added if from the same source, and the resulting speeds are multiplied together afterwards.

As of 0.9.9.3, the maximum level of basic traits has been increased (called "extended max" on this page). Upon reaching level 12, all traits that have a standard max of 3 can be increased to a max of 5, and all traits that have a standard max of 2 can be increased to a max of 3.

Master Traits

Master traits have rather constraining requirements: in addition to needing a partcular set of basic and/or advanced traits, you also cannot have any of the "blocked" traits (listed before the prerequisites). Blocked traits cannot be chosen after choosing the master trait, nor can you choose any other master traits (even if they are technically inclusive of each other).

All master traits have one rank.
