Default Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the week: Absent-Mindedness and Short Attention Span

I suppose if you're playing the absentminded guy there is no point in not giving him crushing penalties to notice things. -10 it is. And yeah, most of those characters will have decent per to start with, so it generally won't go into negative numbers.

I'm not sure there's anywhere I'd use that. If a character took both I think I'd probably throw both the penalties on, and consider that a lengthy noncombat task might well become boring too.
sorry, Single-minded, not focused. page 85.

I would never give a character both focused and short attention span. They seem just too contradictory. Either one might work for absent minded though. I might stick a limitation on short attention span that makes an exception for certain types of tasks though, and that would be compatible with single minded.
