2 levels, 1 point per level
This defect forces the character to meet a special requirement before an action or task can be completed, or in extreme cases, before the character can function at all. This requirement may involve a physical object, an event, an action, an environmental condition, or even a state of mind. Everyday activities such as eating and sleeping normally don't have special requirements unless they must be carried out under unusual conditions or more frequently for some reason. This defect covers a wide range of possibilities and should be discussed with the GM prior to being taken. In the event of multiple Special Requirements, add 1 point for each to the total cost, after the first one. Note that Addiction might be better suited to the character's needs.
Level One: The requirement is easy to obtain, or it is rarely needed.
Level Two: The requirement is difficult to obtain, or it is constantly needed.
