Strain Restrictions

 

Because of the environment and history of the Mass, certain strains are more common than others and some are simply non-existent. To represent that, and to make sure the players of those characters understand the unique circumstances of that strain, we have various levels of approval for each strain. Strains can be Open, Limited, Rare, or Banned. Limited and Rare strains may have requirements in order to play them, such as Assistance Points, background approvals, or a required amount of time that character must be in play for.
