Some RPG status conditions
« on: April 27, 2013, 08:01:07 am »
I've run across a couple of status conditions that I'm unsure of; 戦闘不能 and 状態不良.

I found a Japanese page that describes 戦闘不能 but I'm wondering if anyone here is familiar with how this is typically localized. "downed"? "defeated"? Pretty much the same on the other one. Have you guys run across these?

Unconscious? Knocked out? I think I've seen those in some games.

I would probably go with "unconscious" for the first one.

The second is something like "bad status", so I think it's just saying they've got a status effect.

"KOed" and "Bad Status", maybe?

Context and the effect the status would help you best in determining the best name. That one sounds like when a character has lost all his/her HP in a battle and is in that state where they're in that limbo state. Coma(tose) would even work.
