Working through the rules, getting really excited about trying the game out soon. So far, only one question that I’m really stumped on, and I don’t see it posted about anywhere on the forum.
The rules say that while Sick, a character “cannot advance.” Does this mean:
(a) the character simply does not log any new Pass/Fail tests on skills/abilities, meaning that “nothing counts” the whole time they are Sick, or
(b) they can still log Pass/Fail tests, but they can’t actually advance anything until they clear the condition?
Interpretation (a) seems pretty harsh, but interpretation (b) seems like it could lead to a ridiculous situation in which the character recovers from being sick and then immediately advances a few things (if they had racked up a number of tests while sick). But then again, you’d have to be sick a pretty long time for that to happen, which seems pretty unlikely.
Any official rulings or unofficial thoughts? Thanks!
