      Your quote is correct, however there is more. Check out APG page 330, in the
      section named "Campaign Traits" it says:

      "If your GM uses campaign traits, one of your starting traits must be a
      campaign trait. Your other trait can be chosen from one of the other types of
      traits." You will find the words to the same effect in the original Character
      Traits web enhancement for the Pathfinder RPG on page 3, upper left.

      Depending on the campaign that might noit really makes sense, for example, as
      mentioned earlier with the campaign traits from then Serpent's Skull Player's
      Guide. Those are meaningless for a character that doesn't start out at the
      beginning at the campaign.
