TL;DR: I don’t think the mechanics of the clumsy tag match the fiction, and I think it should be changed or scrapped.
The Clumsy tag.
Clumsy: It’s tough to move around with. -1 ongoing while using it. This penalty is cumulative.
-1 ongoing, to everything, seems like a pretty hefty penalty for wearing armor. I can see arguments for keeping the hero wearing it from moving quietly, from doing anything acrobatic or athletic, or crawling through tight spaces, but I don’t see how wearing armor could interfere with ‘spouting lore’, ‘discerning realities’, or even casting spells unless you are extremely weak. But come on, they’re heroes!
And what about weapons that are clumsy? It’s under ‘armor tags’ by why shouldn’t a war maul be clumsy?
‘ Reworked Clumsy’: It’s tough to move around with. You take -1 to your rolls when you try to move quickly while using this item.
What do you think?
Have you used clumsy armor without ignoring the tag?
