Re: Stress boxes and "passive skills"
- Wow... there is really no such thing as a dumb question! Thank you all
for drilling down on the distinctions between aspect, skill, and
stunt. I hope some of this makes it into a v3 FAQ.

another possibility might be Popeye's spinnach (thoguh it has a more
stuntish feel to it). Popeye isn't the strongest of men, but when he
"activates" his spinnach, he can put down Brutus quite handily.

Might Stunt: Me Spinach
Requires One Might Stunt, one Fists Stunt, must have taken a severe consequence, and one aspect gained by surviving a bout of Scurvy.
You can eat several servings of spinach as a primary action, which erases all stress and heals all consequences. Every consequence you had just before eating the spinach gives you a +1 to Fists, Athletics, and Might rolls when used against the party that gave you the consequences, until you take them out. This bonus is also applied to any roll they make against you as a penalty.
This stunt may be used once per session.
