It's not a bad idea Druid, but I think for consistency sake the whole stat system would have to be changed to reflect it.

A lot of what makes the orbs appeal to me is the consistency they have with the stats.  Red = Sex Stat, so whenever you see red, you associate it with sex, which made it easier to build stats and do other things with them.

Switching the orb system to body/mind/soul almost demands that the stat system be changed to match it, in order too keep from confusing the player.  I could see doing it, possibly in a different game.  I had an idea for a game where you play a landlord trying to control an apartment building full of people, and this system might actually work pretty well there.
Understandable. I just think one orb would feel awkward, and most seem to think that a bunch of orbs are too confusing so I figured three was a very diplomatic and easy to use number. Body, mind, and soul also have a lot too do with the school system (well, not so much soul nowadays) so I figured it wouldn't hurt to have those as the orbs.
Then I'll have to do up a design document for the landlord game because I think I can make the body/mind/soul thing work there.

Be sure to post the game when your done.   ;D
And don't forget to credit me for the design  ;) ;D

Awkward is a relative thing.  Calling it an "orb" might actually be something that would change.  Not sure to what at the moment, but a name change should help.  Perhaps just calling it "Corruption Points" or something would help.  That said, most people don't want ANY orbs because of the poor reaction to it the first time around.  I liked them so I tried to put them back in.

For the landlord game, I see three bars for each tenant.  Each bar represents their body, mind and soul.  The longer the bar, the stronger that element.  The bar starts as white, and as it is corrupted, the bar turns black, absorbing the white end until completely black.  This is a visual thing, but it can be converted into numbers, but this makes it easier to see what's going on.

I've got a bunch of notes for a previous version, but I don't know how much, if any, I should keep.  I may come up with something else entirely and build off the body/mind/soul thing.  We'll see.
