Default Re: What happens at Attribute 0

However, you can walk and act, as long as your walking and acting doesn't involve doing anything other than moving your own body weight from A to B. Thus, air and fire elementals (p. B262) can have ST 0 without being immobilized, but can also be kept out by any barrier they can't penetrate by seeping around or burning.

To afflict somebody with the inability to move her own body, tack on the Paralysis enhancement. That will do the job all on its own . . . but if it's important, add a ST penalty, too. If you want it to be really dire -- with crushed lungs, burst heart, etc. -- link this to a grievous Crushing Attack with Malediction, and blast away the HP that go with "internal ST."
Hope this help.
