actually, hit points were never meant to be taken literally as in the % of life you have left. HP is more of an abstract concept, measureing like your "resistance to being made dead", which is why characters gain more hp as the "level up" through "experience". like, for a fighter, the higher hp total might represent the fact that they have built up scar tissue and are better at taking hits and moving their bodies such that they take more glancing blows and the hits don't get them in their vital areas, whereas a spellcaster is not as good at this, so just a couple of hits will knock them flat. but then again, in 2e and earlier, you were considered "dead" if you went to 0 hp. there was none of the negative hp or the "unconscious, making death throws" or the "bleeding out until a medic stabilizes you" in old school d&d, except wild boars for some reason could continue fighting until they reached -10 hp even though they should be dead at 0. I myself think the "unconscious at 0 and dead at -10 think makes more sense and most d&d video games, including baldurs gate which uses 2e rules, used this interpretation. so technically, a character "should" be like, totally fine until they reach 0 hp, at which point, they are knocked out. I dunno, i guess in real life, people do take gradual hits to their performance as they get hit in the face and take bumps and scratches, people get dizzy or confused and their reactions slow down, but that would be really complicatied and annoying to do that in d&d always having to recalculate "hmm, you are at 60/80 hp, that means you lose 25% of your reaction speed and 25% of your accuracy which means a penalty to your attack rolls until you get healed up to full hp", that would be super annoying so it takes some suspension of disbelief.

also gonna point out that Rowan wasn't wrong to do what he did. the other players were making too big a deal out of him having 1 hp, plus they were kinda metagaming because they shouldn't know he's at 1hp, they only know that he was unconscious earlier and now he's up and he looks pretty bloodied but they don't know how close to death he is. his own character should be able to assess its own feelings. although, oftentimes, people close to death might not realize it because they are in shock and dazed and their judgement is impaired so i dunno

Oh, do one about how retarded the "chance to cause bleeding" effect on weapons is in RPGs. Bro, your weapons are blades made to cut open flesh, arrows that poke deep holes into you, and hammers that crush bone and cause massive internal bleeding. How does every weapon NOT cause 100% chance of bleeding?! Also, pretty sure a massive wound doesn't stop bleeding without some serious medical attention. Would definitely make having a healer incredibly important.

Also, again lucky you for not having had to become familiar with the clotting process for major wounds. I assure you that minor first aid can staunch almost any flesh wound, even though major medical intervention may be required to heal from it adequately. Yes, magical healing is miraculous. It's kind of in the name.

If you've never personally sliced open a major blood vessel, and know the difference between 'it bled' and 'I'm bleeding out' lucky you. But your lack of awareness of the difference between minor blood vessels and major arteries, and the different types of injuries that can shred an artery open doesn't make the game less believeable. It makes it more believable to people who know how bodies work.

Those who say "unconscious for 1 d4 hour is medically inaccurate" are not very familiar with intense pain. Consciousness is not a binary of Awake versus Asleep. "Insensible with pain" is a thing, have you never been in so much pain that you can't hear? Well lucky you. Other than intense pain, there's being so poisoned/feverish/nauseous that you can't perceive reality enough to interact with it. Also blacking out with pain, and then your body being so knocked around that you stay asleep for hours. Also shock. If you've never passed out from shock, I envy you. And it will last hours and kill you if you're in adverse environmental conditions. Yes, being literally knocked unconscious only last a maximum of minutes if you haven't received a permanent brain injury. But there's more than one way to be unconscious. And suffering 1 d4 hours of it if you don't receive medical treatment is very accurate. If not on the short side. What sort of charmed life have you lived, if you've never had at least an hour where your longest period of lucidity was shorter than 6 seconds?

​@Faultty Considering there's no one in spotless armor with a halo, I'm sure you're right, lol. I was just making a comment that LG'ers hated stuff like that. (And if I was DM'ing, it was always amusing to force one to stay true to it's alignment. Gods have a way to... to make sure the minions stay in line...) I always seemed to gravitate toward Chaotic Neutral, myself. I haven't watched enough of VLDL D&D here to see if they take alignment seriously...

HP is not (just) equal to physical damage (blood loss. injury or any other visible metric). cutting the troath of someone in DnD is just as deadly as in real life... In DnD HP is realated is a bag of various metric used to evaluate your capability to fight: luck, will/resolve to fight, stamina, and yes physical damage Yes in 4th edition at 1/2 HP you were "bloodied" and even in 5e some habilities are dependant on your HP level (life cleric channel divinity that heal up to half HP, power word death that effect target under 100HP only) but those spell shows exactly that: life ceric chanel divinity heal your corporeal wound, but do not boost your resolve so it can heal only half your HP Power word death: if your resolve to life is too weak, you simply die Warrior second wind do not magically close wounds, it's more like a renewal of it's resolved Barbarian rage do not actually make his skin thicker making the sword cut less, it make him care less about that sword cut (again playing on the resolve/will to fight aspect) So if in combat you are aiming at the troath of your ennemy to cut it or aim your arrow at his heart, if your attack bring him to 0HP grats it works. If you attack bring him to 1HP or more, sorry you missed to actually do physical arm to him (or you did succeed to do physical damage but not in a vital spot) but since you did "hit" you manage to wear him down, to tires him out, to lower his resolve/will to survive, o next turn you might manage to pierce hi heart or cut his head off (if you bring him to 0 HP). So yes my sorcerer is just has able to cast a huge spell at 1 HP as he could at full HP. The ranger is just as competent to do survival check and set up camp at 1HP then at full HP. The only difference is if he encounter a treath, his resolve to survive is weaker and a single slap might make him faint. RP wise, true maybe the player with 1HP should have less bravado, sure he can still do everythign his good at just as good as usual, but he'll be less inclined to put himself in danger, less incline to take risk, since even a angry squirel biting him or a barbarian slaping him could make him faint
