Adam, I know what you mean, even though your picture didn’t show. I blame alphabetizing.
Ben, come to think of it, in a better world there’d be a “do you abandon your calling?” conflict to mirror the “do you die?” conflict, and it’d be your own will + your healer’s heart. That’s especially cool because Acuity+Body and Heart+Will are the pairs you don’t use otherwise.
But I’m interested in other ways to mix up stats and arenas of conflict than splitting and pairing them like Dogs does. Consider Trollbabe, with its magical, social and physical, where a) the stats are named after the arenas of conflict, yes, but b) they’re mixed up by one of them being set equal, always, to the lower of the other two +1.
Other examples welcome!
