The Problem[edit]

Rolling for your hit points can leave barbarians with lower hit points than sorcerers on the whim of a die - which is undesirable. Additionally, early-on, a single lucky greataxe critical hit can fell a character, which is not something that we really want to be seeing either.

The Solution[edit]

Characters receive a static number of hit points at each level, based on what kind of hit die they had previously, as follows:

  • d4 - 3
  • d6 - 4
  • d8 - 5
  • d10 - 6
  • d12 - 7

Additionally, instead of receiving maximum hit points for their hit die, characters receive a fixed number, based on their initial hit die.

  • d4 - 9
  • d6 - 12
  • d8 - 15
  • d10 - 18
  • d12 - 21

As ever, Constitution modifiers apply to these numbers as they normally would.
