Patyrsun's Quirk Page

Comming up with interesting Quirks for a new GURPS character is sometimes a bit of a chore for me, so I started a Quirk list long ago and have added to it over the years. My plan is to add to the quirks listed here as time permits. Many of these quirks have been made-up by myself or by the players in games that I have GMed, but some them have likely been published and if so, then no copy right infringement on my part is intended. If the author of the quirk wishes I will remove or change the quirk in question.
My Current plan is to put up 1,000 quirks and number them so that if someone wishes, he may randomly roll a Quirk by rolling a 10-sided dice three times, reading the numbers rolled in order to determine a quirk's number. Many times my players or myself got stuck and needed a quirk or two to finish rounding-out a player-character or NPC. This table has proved a useful gaming aid for GMs and players alike. Enjoy!
