Civilization Traits are a set of modifiers that can be applied to a Civilization in supplement to their main Civilization Abilities to further shape their playstyle. Traits differ from Abilities in being smaller in scope, and are generally restricted as numerical modifiers to the various statistics and resources available to the Civilization, with a few notable exceptions that give access to technologies or Improvements.
Traits can be positive or negative and each has a points value attached, ranging from -2 to +2 points. A Civilization may pick 3 points worth of Traits, in any combination, and taking some negative Traits will allow taking more than three Traits in total at the expense of some negative modifiers.
