Reasons for being: Trait and Civic: RP Advice

In Stellaris, different governments and races can have the same civics and traits. However, that doesn’t mean that the source of that power has to be the exact same. Just because two races are “strong” doesn’t mean both are muscle bound barbarians. One could have an overpowered exoskeleton, while the other could fabricate additional tentacles to get the same result.

Below are some examples of sample traits which can have different reasons for being. You can comment down how your races traits and civics come into being.

  • -This race is childish. Their attention spans drift when forced to do work they don’t want to do. But when they find things they like, they have the tendency to hype fixate.
