In many Covenants, older grogs end up fairly warped; so it makes sense to assign them Warping scores at character creation. Do the Flaws gained from Warping, and the single minor Virtue gained at Warping 5, count against the normal Virtue and Flaw limitations of grogs?
In our saga, they do not. A grizzled old shield grog created with a Warping score of 6 will have up to 4 Minor Virtues (1 from Warping), up to 5 Minor Flaws (2 from Warping), and a Major Flaw (from Warping). The only limitation that still applies is that grogs never get Story Flaws.
