After character creation, the traits awarded for choices from the various age groups disappear. It is also impossible to gain traits during play, no matter what choice is made. I realize that this is not a game breaking bug, nor is it a high priority considering other issues that cause bigger problems. It does, however, make certain actions more difficult to complete such as attempting to court a prospective spouse and recruiting vassals to the player's faction. I have researched online (outside the forum) about this issue and am not the only player to have noticed this. If this bug could be resolved at some point, I, and I'm sure others, would appreciate it.
