 +===== Sanity =====
 +
 +One common trait of many //Horror// RPGs is the concept of sanity, or the lack thereof. Though this isn't part of //Modern Characters//,​ **YAGS** does have the concept of //​Virtues//,​ which are personality traits which can be used to resist base impulses. Virtues can be viewed as a saving throw against a character doing something the player doesn'​t want them to do.
 +
 +For example, //Bravery// is a Virtue which can allow a character to stay and fight when they might prefer to run away. //Sanity// is a Virtue that can be used to prevent a character from doing something irrational and insane. Too much exposure to supernatural terror can reduce //Sanity//. However, insane characters can have a better chance of making use of the supernatural. A rational mind cannot so easily understand magic.
 +
 +//Sanity// and other virtues will be explained in a further supplement. For most people they start at 4, and are similar to skills, being used with //Will//.
