Ben! Those two are the best. They should anti-bug you.
They're where my "I want my character to be a better gunfighter" and your "I want my character to be a better athelete" touch!

BL go "It bugs me because..."
Sometimes I'm like "I wanna be a sickly dog" and then I'm like "no, wait, I gotta at least have a body of 3, otherwise I will constantly be dying with great dieness."
NK go "What's wrong with...?"
"I'm sickly and weak 3d10"?
BL go "Nothing"
I just feel lame having that and putting 4d6 or more into Body.
And, frankly, if you're going to do solo conflicts or escalate (let alone both!) you need to have 4d6 or more in Body. Or die.
RE go "But"
There are tons of characters in stories who stagger around, hacking and coughing, looking sickly, and yet endure horrifying travails. Seems to me that the "sickly, pathetic, ack" and the "endures all" are a match made in heaven.
BL go "Yeah, yeah"
Both of you are right, of course.
CS go "Not to beat a dead horse..."
...but maybe the reason he's got such a high Body is because someone without it wouldn't still be walking around, given how sickly he is.
