I'm looking for a way to call an attribute for a Pen&Paper RPG. It's supposed to be derived from "Strength" and "Agilty" and would be used for all kinds of things which usually fall somewhere in between, like swimming, climbing, jumping, etc. So far, I am stuck with athleticism and I was also wondering whether sportiness might be an option or whether that's usually used for "fairness in sports". But both feel a little unwieldy compared to other attribute names. Any better suggestions?
For an RPG player attribute, I think "conditioning", "vigor", and "might" all work pretty well.
Prowess might be a good single word choice. You can be more descriptive by using physical prowess.
Merriam-Webster offers this definition: "extraordinary ability" and "He is know for his prowess on the football field." shown as an example in a sentence.
Physicality might fit the bill here.
The physical attributes of a person, especially when overdeveloped or overemphasized.
Otherwise, I'd elect to use the global term fitness. Someone who is fit is a good combination of strong and dextrous.
I think the word ‘fitness’ might be what you’re looking for.
Definition of ‘fit’ from Lexico:
In good health, especially because of regular physical exercise
The word ‘fitness’ brings athletes to mind and athletes make me think of training that focuses on both strength and agility (think football, soccer, gymnastics, etc.). I believe the word ‘fitness’ would suit a game skill that directly relates to swimming, climbing, jumping, etc.
