Tiny Hit Point Companion - Supplement

Post Sun May 04, 2014 2:50 pm

I uploaded the Tiny Hit Point Companion (formerly known as the Hit Points as Currency supplement) to the showcase section.
http://www.basicfantasy.org/showcase.cgi?sid=52

Based on a house-rule, and its expansion I published on my Mad-Kyndalanth blog.
http://mad-kyndalanth.blogspot.de/2012/ ... oints.html

It is designed to be used as a stand-alone expansion, or together with &Pain, and the Tiny Magic Companion (both of which can be found in the showcase section, as well.)

Tiny Hit Point Companion R3
http://www.basicfantasy.org/showcase.cgi?sid=52

-I corrected a miscalculation in the example for Defend maneuvers.
-I shortened the Bad Hair Day/ I feel Awesome Rule to Bad Hair Day Rule.
-I deleted the optional rule on armor restrictions, since it had nothing to do with hit points.
-Some minor editing of the text.

This is really cool. I like the simple tradeoffs on effects: the defender either accepts the bad thing, or accepts the hp cost of the attempted maneuver as more damage.

The example on hp cost for spells is off: You have a 1st level spell costing 2hp, where by the formula (1 + 2*1) it should be 3.

R5 fo the Tiny Hit Point Companion

After some thought, and testing I simplified the standard formula for hit point magic, and edited the rules for 0-level spells.

hit point cost is now spell level times 2. A 1st-level spell for 2 hp just felt right. 0-level spells are at 0 hp cost, now; however the GM may decide to use temporary hit point loss in some cases.

These changes are made to the Tiny Magic Companion, as well - obviously.

Enjoy the game!

Just uploaded R6 of the Tiny Hit Point Companion. :geek:

Some minor editing of the text, caught a few typos, changed armour to armor, as in the core rules.

The note on standard actions, and maneuvers that says they do not cost hit points is moved to page 2 and got its own heading, so people don't miss it. (It was under Creature & Character Hit Points on page 4)

The text for special non-lethal maneuvers was edited, because it made no sense. Once the attack roll was successful hit points can be spent to purchase such maneuvers, so another roll is not required. I added an example, as well.

I removed all e.g.s in front of the examples, because they are italicized, anyway. So, I guess readers will get that.
