I am designing a few edges for my custom setting at the moment, and the question came up about how strong certain bonuses should be. I have designed two edges that give a flat bonus to charisma.
I have two (mutually exclusive) edges that either give you +3 to charisma when interacting friendly with people of either the same sex or the different sex (there are only humans in this setting, and only male/female)
Is a bonus of +3, even though it is only in a special circumstance to strong? I had a +2 bonus at first, but regarding the edges that just give +2 to charisma in all situations, I felt the new edges where not worth choosing over the old ones.
(If you want to know why I feel the need to add edges like these: I just like tinkering with the system and my players 90% of the time don't pick an edge because they feel it is "strong" or with a "perfect build" in mind, but instead because they feel it fits the character. I am just trying to provide more options for this kind of playstile.)
