(4 point Flaw)

Bureaucracy hates you. No matter how well you perform your duties, you can't cut through red tape worth a damn. Maybe you pissed off the supply manager or dissed that secretary or lost one too many pieces of valuable gear. In any case, you run into complications whenever you need equipment or resources. When you do get them, they always leave something to be desired. In game terms, this Flaw is the opposite of the Merit: Master of Red Tape. Add two to the difficulty of obtaining anything through a bureaucracy, either the Technocracy's maze or a mundane one. Calls are not returned, favors are revoked, forms get lost and messages never get through. If you're smart, you'll let others handle the red tape. When you're on your own, you're stuck.
