I may have misunderstood how some of the tables work in conjunction with each other, but the height/weight modifier table went as low as 0lb to 999+, so 14lb should be possible.

Edit: I went back to the site that had the handbook... evidently 2nd edition somehow removed the weight table, so it was available separately. I'm actually about 150lb, which is more reasonable. If somewhat less funny.

There are radiation manipulations (AKA mutations) that can make you lose a lot of weight.
It's definitely possible, though your weight will still be a multiple of your height somehow. Even if that multiple is 1/2^x.

Know what else it's missing? Any of the "cross mutations" listed by some of the radiation manipulations, any rules or item descriptions for cybernetics or implants, parts of the firearms table, and any semblance of sanity.

Have you gotten to the point where you need to haggle with the GM over your equipment, and the use of the haggling skill before your character is even in the world earns you some more experience points?

I saw that mentioned and thought it was a pretty cool touch (conceptually), but since I was doing it by myself just for fun to see what kind of a warped character I'd end up with, I skipped over skill allocation and the haggling. My highlight of character development was rolling 787 on my final mutation roll-- Double the Fun, which doubles the amount of mutations you have. (Wheee~!)

Died many times in the final fight before Nemeroth.  There was nowhere to stand that would let you recover, and 4 chaos marines shooting you plus heretic guardsmen flushing you out meant I died pretty fast on most attempts.  Funny that the bloodletters were the easiest part, with a meltagun shot or two doing them in.  I finally just grabbed the lascannon on the next attempt and sniped a few of the chaos marines, which made it beatable.

Died a lot right before that by getting stuck on obstacles and getting shot while trying to get into cover.  The funniest moment was probably getting plasma cannoned while trying to get into cover, only to flail like an idiot while trying to walk over Sidonus's body.

Trying out Survival Mode for the first time. I'm not gonna do any Minutemen quests, I'm primarily just gonna use a combat knife and explosives. Sneak attacks are pretty much the only thing I've got going for me.

My level 5 character is currently flimsy enough to die to an attack dog in 1 hit. I've done a grand total of 1 quest, and am currently just making my way south hoping to find a bed to sleep in, as well as enough food and water to keep me going.

As far as my actual deaths, I've died so many times to enemy gunfire, blood bugs, the aforementioned attack dog, and molotovs. Survival mode is hard.

Earlier in the game I had to do a mission to use stealth to steal box from a military base, and after I completed that I was later given another mission to steal some papers from another military base, so I try to sneak in and get found and killed almost immediately so I try again and again until I realize that it doesn't matter if I fail to sneak in like it did in the other one, so I say fuck it and kill everyone there and take the stupid ass papers, the award for completion was not worth the bullshit and the amount of time wasted trying to get that shit.


I think I died at least thirty times trying to do that damn mission, I hope they choke on those stupid ass papers.

Tried to dig straight down to the core area of an ocean world, intending to use the column of water to easily ascend back up to beam-out depth. The planet had tungsten, which I needed lots of for a construction project.

Punched into a luminous cave biome, which features pools of poison. Ended up turning the entire underground cave system into a toxic mess as the water that flows into the cave system converts to poison faster than I can remove it.

EDIT: Another ocean world with its entire underground turned into an uninhabitable toxic wasteland. This time I hit a flesh biome going down, which also features poison water. And it doesn't help that I died near the core(somehow, I had full HP but one 30HP hit instakilled me), so I had to dive back through the poison without any recovery items(they dropped on death), somehow managed to make it back to my stuff with single digit hitpoints, then go back up.

Also learned that ocean worlds have titanium, not tungsten, in large amounts near the core. I did find tungsten inside a desert world.

Run over by a laughing animated flame while trying to climb a spiraling pathway.  It was at least amusing to see Banjo sitting in the nearby lava and crying.

I realized after this that I had to climb said spiraling pathway as just Kazooie, and almost died again because jumping over them is very difficult and I had to kind of just cheese the physics by hugging the inner part of the pathway where their collision didn't register against me.

This whole story is hilarious, and sounds like the kind of thing I would do.

Attempt at making a sushi roll failed largely due to not being able to find a knife sharp enough to cut through the seaweed. To be fair, this particular sheet of nori was unusually tough; normally they tend to split apart while rolling it.


Also while eating it, a hard grain of rice got chewed into a cracked molar.

Sectoid with a plasma gun shot my soldier and killed him a single hit.  Not unexpected, and to be fair one of his buddies shot him in the back somehow while aiming up into the barn loft at said sectoid so he was going to die anyway due to my lack of medikits and the fatal wound he suffered.

At least I got the sectoid back with what I think was a cannon of some kind.  It was my first mission so I've got a lot of learning to do.

The starting grenade launcher is so cool.

and really helps highlight how under prepared humanity is for the aliens.  It's like nuking Germany just to kill Hitler
