Flaws Obsession (Edward is obsessed with riddles and puzzles, in particular with solving them and having others try to do the same. He enjoys stumping those around him and leaving them mystified. Any time Edward does something that no one but him knows about, he is compelled to leave a clue or some hint toward what he is up to, always in the form of a riddle or puzzle, for intended targets to contend with. Failure to do so, or failure by his intended targets to engage with his riddles, causes Edward to suffer the shaken condition. Each hour thereafter, Edward must succeed on a DC 20 Will save or suffer the panicked condition for the ensuing hour.)—Bonus Feat: Cryptophile
