  • MCIs may not grant merits to templates that would not ordinarily be eligible to receive them.
  • MCIs merits may ignore other pre-requisites such as Skill and Attribute. If the MCI grants points in a Style or a scaling Merit, you may not purchase beyond what the MCI grants unless or until you meet the ordinary pre-requisites of the merit.
  • MCIs must have a minimum of three player character members, which cannot belong to the same player.
  • You can take no more than 5 dots in Mystery Cult total, and must provide justification for membership in more than one. Please note that membership in more than one Mystery Cult does not mean you can take more than 5 total MCI dots.
  • Joining a player made MCI requires the approval of the player who created it.
