    Yes, Saur Ops. Those measurements come with various complications.
    But, again, Complications are not Impossibilities. Please do not make an appeal to ignorance. Those variables can be detected and accounted far more than you seem to believe.

    This ignores, however, that malnutrition has long become a problem beneath the average person. Both males and females today are consistently taller, stronger and even a bit smarter because we faced very little impediments to our formative years compared to those even just a century ago.

    This added difficulty, too, is an added difficulty, not an impossibility. Scientists are better at this than you are giving them credit.

    For example, testosterone is a known facilitator of building muscle mass, and it's consistently more prevalent in males. Another example of how this...

  • Sounds good enough.
    I'd invest more heavily in resistance, but his recovery can be emulated mostly through one charm already.


    I would also cap awareness earlier, and get the keen senses early too.

    Signs don't translate well to anything canon, but you should find reasonable homebrew, this topic comes and goes.

    You set yourself on a much more complicated corner with your "purely cultural reasons" affirmation than you think.
    For starters, "culture" is often an ill defined, fuzzy term, especially over a casual conversation like this one. It's very hard to make predictive, reproducible, falseable arguments over that.
    That affirmation also demands proof in the form of linking every behavioral phenomenon you can see to it. It's such a demanding statement that it can break with any single study that spots behavioral differences tied to non-cultural elements.
    Symmetrically,...

    You are mostly correct, but not wholly. The Stratagem system is intended for battle groups.

    That said, there's nothing keeping you from enjoying it without them, and it adds an interesting layer of depth to the scene that makes sense for ambush fighters of any sort - and few are as prone to try that as the Wyld Huntsmen and Huntresses.

    The basic problem that springs up - how to roll stratagems when there isn't a commander on the opposide side - happens with or without battlegroups. The solution is to either go uncontested (for a completely unprepared and unwary enemy)...

    More or less. The story is not about the brothel, even if it is a major point of pride of his. It's home base and a mirror of its owner's perception of beauty, but the story focuses on other things for now.
    The Coral disparities are there, but there's little point in redescribing minutia on the same thing.

    Parallel to that, if the norm was different it'd change how his business runs, but wouldn't change that running a super fancy brothel mirrors his particular idiosyncrasies.

    It was a major factor when the story focused on it. It was major when detractors tried...
