Comprehensive Merit List

This list contains a list of all merits available from the current World of Darkness books, save for Second Sight's Thaumeturge and Psychic powers and Territories description merits. The books with omitted material are still reviewed and labeled, just not the large blocks of merits that grant powers/territory descriptions.
The merits have been divided up into five sections: Mental, Physical, Social, Haven, and Supernatural. Haven merits are all “residence” enhancing merits that depend on the base Haven or Sanctum merits. Supernatural merits are merits that either need a supernatural template or deal with supernatural powers.
