Perks ErisEn

Perks on Eris denote a special ability or effect for individual characters for the duration of a round. There are four types of perks that are currently available to the players: Profession Perks, Fate Perks, Oddity Perks, and NT Oddity Perks. Profession perks come with your selected job, and most faction jobs will have round-start perks that they share. Fate perks are completely optional and some even have negative effects stemming from which “Fate” background you select during character creation(under Backgrounds tab). Oddity perks are gained during the course of the round as a consequence of using an Oddity to fulfill your Insight desire. Once you reach a stat boost with that oddity, you will receive the perk that is tied to it for the rest of the round, and the perk will be removed from the oddity.

You start with a family heirloom weapon that also acts as an oddity, and has your family name engraved on it.
Rat.png Rat You start with a +10 to Mechanical stat and -10 to Vigilance. You will have a -10 to overall sanity health, meaning you will incur a breakdown faster than most. However, your footsteps become much more silent and you gain a chance to ignore a trap when walking over it. This includes things like wire splices, bear traps, mousetraps, and mines.
Rejectedgenius.png Rejected Genius Your environmental sanity loss cap is removed, meaning you can incur breakdowns by spending too much time around things like blood and corpses. Your maximum sanity health is decreased by 20, and your chance of a positive breakdown is always at 0%. Your insight gain speed is increased by 50%. This allows you to reach stat boosts and oddity perks much quicker; as long as you can keep your sanity from dragging you into ruin.
Oborin.png Oborin Syndrome A mysterious disease of which those afflicted, see the world in a black and white palette and cannot make out the taste of food. This grants you an increase of 20 to your total sanity pool.
Lowborn.png Lowborn You are the lowest rung of society. Your family name doesn’t matter to anyone, so you have long since abandoned it. You cannot play as any Command roles. With this perk, you are allowed to have a singular first name, so make sure to change your characters name to just utilize the first name slot. Examples would include “Imp”, ”Brick” or “Rat”. You also gain a +10 increase to your total sanity pool.

Oddity Perks

These perks are specifically tied to oddity items found in game. You can find them laying around maintenance or buy them from vagabonds, or sometimes the Asters Guild.
