Default Thin

Characters on the low end of the strength scale can take Thin to keep their weight under twice the square of their ST. A thin character weighs twice their ST squared minus up to 5% of that total.

Examples:
Thin Halfling ST 4: 30 pounds
Thin Goblin or Elf ST 6: 70 pounds
Thin Human ST 8: 122 pounds

A thin character wears standard weight and cost (but custom fitted) armor and clothes for their race as their surface area isn't much reduced.

A thin character rolls one additional die to resist being knocked over by shield rushes, tail lashing, etc., unless they have Acrobatics. If they do have Acrobatics then they can either choose to be pushed back a hex and then try the Acrobatics roll (Usually 3/DX for being shield rushed by a stronger foe minus one die to 2/DX for Acrobatics) or stand their ground and have thin cancel out the usual Acrobatics benefit.

Isn't something like this better reserved for GURPS? I mean, TFT is supposed to be the "simple" game in the series...
