I've got a character (a 15/16-year old girl) who's kicked hard in the side by a big guy, suffering a couple cracked/broken ribs, but no punctured organs. While I've suffered injuries to various parts of my anatomy at one point or another, I've never injured my ribs. (Side note: How hard is it to break someone's ribs? Would once actually do it, assuming she's normal size for her age, or would he have to go at her a few more times?) * What does it feel like (I know it hurts, but what kind of pain), especially right after it happens? * How does it impede everyday life? What can't you do as easily? * Is it hard to breathe? * Is there bruising? * Anything else you'd think is relevant. Thanks!
