"Puny Sims are physically weak and feeble. They rarely can hold their own in a fight, and strenuous activity quickly leaves them tired and sore."

Puny is a Fatal Flaw.

  • Puny Sims are more likely to lose fights.
  • Puny Sims become sore faster when doing strenuous activities (fighting, mining, etc).
  • Puny Sims get drunk faster.
  • Puny Sims are not more prone to disease, unlike those with a Weak Constitution.
  • Puny Sims often lose at Kingball.
