I am also curious, given I intend to pur-chase Kingdom Come Deliverance later today.

No idea about KC:D, but deadEarth you just reroll.

...unless that's the last of your (2? 3?) character options you're supposed to be presented with, in which case you just don't play. Because you're unworthy.

In kingdom come it's more of a joke then anything since you end up playing the same dude regardless. You just press a button and it either goes away or you die in a new way, you can easily just skip it. Character creation is probably not the right word, since in hardcore you just pick two debuffs and go on as usual. No real stat assigning involved, the closest you get is a dialogue option at the beginning which raises one stat.

So I'm bored (long bus ride...) and did most of character creation on my phone and think I'm actually doing pretty well-- I'm 21 years old, almost 7 feet tall, weigh 14(!) pounds, age at double speed, have nigh infinite quantities of blood, no carrying capacity, no movement, the minimum starting money, and pockmarks/pustules all over my body.

Okay, but I'm not dead.

Crushed by rapidly rising floor against a ceiling, along with a bunch of abnormally pettable cats. Damn you, "unknown spell"!

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.
