The Lost City

My local rule on hp and death is that you are out but not dead at 0 (if you somehow manage to get enough rest to heal a hp, you live).

  • -1 or -2, you are mortally wounded and required mundane help to live. First aid and a safe place to heal are required.
  • First aid in my game heals a hp. You are successful on a 1 in 6, Int mods apply. Failure stops further hp loss but doesn't heal a hp.
  • -3 or more, only magical healing can help with. I assume each turn counts as another hp lost. Once you hit -8 hp, nothing short of higher healing can save you.
  • A cure serious wounds can revive the seemingly dead (-16hp) on a lucky roll.
