My friends dad had a large heart. He was like 6'7". His heart was closer to the size of a lung.

The human heart does not function properly at that size.

The electrical signal that makes it beat isn't strong enough to reach all the way across an oversized heart.

He had to have a pacemaker for like 20 years.

And then his doctor put him on a no salt diet, while forgetting she had put him on meds that leeched all the salt out if his body as a side effect.

By the time they realized it, there had already been serious brain damage and his health was awful. Spent a few months in a nursing home and died.

And Jim wasn't fat, he was stick thin .

But either way, a larger heart doesn't solve the problem, it causes me problems.

Fast forward years later and he's like 400 pounds and his chair's been upgraded nine times.

yeah. dwarfism has it is own sets of health issues. some are musculoskeletal others come about because you can have normal sized organs squashed into too small a cheat cavity. When people are odd sizes their various body parts don't all scale up/down correctly and that causes issues.

alternatively if you're that small without dwarfism its near certainly because of malnourishment which can cause all sorts of other isues again.

I like how The Riddle of Steel does it. Obese is a character flaw you can take, and comes in both minor and major versions. It basically makes you permanently encumbered, but you can "buy it off" as part of your character advancement. It's simple but it has all of the effects one would expect, taking dice out of your combat pool and from pretty much every physical ability or skill test.

It is quite difficult, actually. Imagine being addicted to cigarettes and having to, not quit, but go down to just smoking just a little bit, because if you quit cold turkey, you die.

>Requesting enlightenment.
Saying "literally who?" isn't a request for enlightenment, you slavering fucking retard, it implies you're talking about someone obscure and unimportant.

You would understand this if you possessed basic communication skills, and weren't such an autist.

Eh, cold turkey is applicable still. For example a lot of fatties eat a lot of extras to their regular food intake - that should be turkey'd. And on the flipside, some things may be left as is, at least for start.

>Just hope for true genetic engineering, for when we'll design everything to fit together well rather than praying to evolution RNG.

This will never ever happen. You will never be able to convince the masses to allow it, and even if we had the technology, it would take a ton of trial and error before we got it right, and that would mean countless ruined human lives before we got all the kinks out.

And countless ruined human lives is only okay if it's due to starvation in third world countries.

My favorite system for morbid obesity is Dwarf Fortress. Fat is a tissue layer like any other, but fort denizens invariably eat more than they burn. As a result they keep getting fatter and fatter. Its not GREAT for surviving hits, but it does make you bigger and to some extent tougher.

How fat do characters become? Well:

Size 60000 - average goblin elf or dwarf size
Size 70000 - average human size
Size 15000 or so - average child size
Size 125000 - average troll

Normally its basically impossible to see a creature's size. However DFHack lets you see their size. People have reported dwarven children, raised over a decade or so in the fort and trained every day (so we're not talking sedentaries by any means), getting size of 110000 to 130000!

People are frequently reporting kids hitting above their expectations, and killing improbable monsters. Why? Well, they're fucking HUGE.

We've had some fat NPCs in our game, but they're invariably used for comic relief. Our ST really hates fat people. (Thankfully, none of us players are fat.) I'm a bit more tolerant, because they keep making these fat people jokes and I just think it's a bit weird. Like, I think religious people are retarded, but I keep that to myself.

I bet nobody in the history of humanity have ever said this and been wrong before.

Seriously though, it's pretty much inevitable, as long as we don't kill ourselves off before then via nukes or some bullshit disease. All it needs is time.

Hey, thin people have this problem as well. I fucking hate food, but I'm forced to eat it, or I'll fucking die. That's no fun for me either, but I still have to do it. It's not that hard.

Also, quitting smoking is easier than people claim. Sure, it does take some willpower and I won't say it's EASY, but it's not as impossible as it's made out to be.

I remember the bug where if a dwarf walked though heated water (or something to that effect), that all the fat would MELT off their bodies and they'd bleed to death.

Boiling water then? Or just a hot bath? Weird.

It would be neat if that fat then clogged the pipes and made everything overflow.

It was a bug that set melting point of fat way too low, around summer room temperature.
Any interaction that forced a check for temperature would melt faces. Common use was a hallway with slightly heated water.

Ok, this will take a bit of explaining.

Fat = prosperity, so fat buddha basically means enlightened prosperity.

The "actual mythological" buddha actually took on a form of asceticism and got to levels of thinness that is usually reserved for corpses and supermodels. The guy fell in a river and nearly drowned because he was living on one nut or one leaf a day, and only survived because some watery tart fished him out and gave her some milk pudding to him if you know what I mean.

Fat buddha is basically like rich people claiming to be good christians, when jesus said you've got a better chance of getting a donkey through a needle than being rich and getting into heaven.

Ok, not that much explaining.

Thanks for the explanation bro. Being deathly thin is probably not a very good idea either, I don't think Buddha sounds very wise to be honest. But what you're saying is basically that fat rich people make fat Buddha statues as if to say "hey, look at Buddha! He's fat. I'm fat too, we have so much in common!"

Yes, fat affects speed. So does huge amounts of muscle, but strength also increases speed enough to usually make up for it.

There does not, ultimately, seem to be a significant drawback, however. So yes, being morbidly, impossibly obese is strictly advantageous. The only drawback is that fat makes you more vulnerable to death by fire.

The mustard race is probably superelephantly strong elephant men gifted with massive obesity, with their strength scores about 4x that of a normal elephant person, and who've hung out in a fort for ages, long enough to fatten up.

Size also determines thickness of armor.

Well, take it in context. Siddhartha was a prince noble lord dude, and was very sheltered. One day he managed to sneak out of the palace, and saw an old man, a corpse, and a aesthetic hermit, who told him that aestheticism was basically a get-out-of-dying-free card.

After that he got stuck in the "fuck, people DIE, man, that's fucking terrible" mindset.
"Wait, ascetics survive fuckloads, according to this one guy I met, let's try to starve myself to attain enlightenment."

Then he sat under a tree until he worked out "hey, the reason why this is bad is because people want stuff. If you don't want stuff, you can't be hurt."

IIRC correctly he then realizes that it's best to take the healthy middle ground, so actual Buddha is probably normal build.

Yeah, basically that. He founded the middle way through the eightfold path.

But >>48498364 is also true. Buddha is a title, not a name. And there's that fat fuck who is just a hobo dude of fortune.

...after looking it up in wikipedia, the buddhist titles are pretty neat. It'd fit in with exalted pretty well.

Buddho – Awakened
Sammasambuddho – Perfectly self-awakened
Vijja-carana-sampano – Endowed with higher knowledge and ideal conduct.
Sugato – Well-gone or Well-spoken.
Lokavidu – Wise in the knowledge of the many worlds.
Anuttaro Purisa-damma-sarathi – Unexcelled trainer of untrained people.
Satthadeva-Manussanam – Teacher of gods and humans.
Bhagavathi – The Blessed one
Araham – Worthy of homage
