I’m working on a Sci-Fi game with a strong psychological theme. I’ve got a table with 80 psychological ailments ranging from nervous twitches and bad habits to stress related catatonic disorders and tourrettes. I have built in a mechanic to allow players to ignore them out of convenience, but that causes more stress (insanity points) and can lead to worse afflictions.
