These Merits and laws are banned for various reasons. Some of them may just not work well with an online game, keep checking back because they may become removed from banned status if the mechanics are reworked to work better with an online game.

Some banned merits and flaws maybe taken for no points, basically we are okay with these things as character quirks but find them either too much or too crippling as out and out merits and flaws.
