Phobias is one of Fallout GURPS disadvantages. See: Fallout GURPS.
Overview[edit | edit source]
A phobia is a fear of a specific item, creature, or circumstance. Many fears are reasonable, but a phobia is an unreasonable, unreasoning, morbid fear. The more common an object or situation, the greater the point value of a fear of it. If you have a phobia, you may temporarily master it by making a successful Will roll . . . but the fear persists. Even if you master a phobia, you will be at -2 IQ and -2 DX while the cause of your fear is present, and you must roll again every ten minutes to see if the fear overcomes you. If you fail a Will roll to overcome a phobia, you will cringe, flee, panic or otherwise react in a manner that precludes sensible action.”— Steve Jackson Games GURPS sources
In Fallout[edit | edit source]
With the abandonment of GURPS, Phobias was removed from the game. Owing to the number of calls to it, there were three specific phobias in the game.
