Talk:Hit points

Shouldn't this page address the message "You don't have enough stamina to move" when your hit points are below a certain percentage (I was able to move after getting to 10/45, so I'm guessing 20%) and you are encumbered? Rezecib 03:52, January 21, 2010 (UTC)


Describe how HP and maxhp changes if you are drained a level, and how it changes on same-race-poly. Bejonas (talk) 23:20, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

There may be some new way of losing HP. I ate a few killer bee corpses (without, alas, gaining poison resistance, and no unicorns were generated. Note to self: Get a horn or temporary resistance first). As a result my str dropped all the way down to 3. A while later I noticed that my max HP was down to somewhere in the 30s instead of about 70 where it had been. I don't *think* a weird magical being did something to me, and although there had been a polymorph trap, I don't recall stepping on it. If a loss of strength results in a loss of HP capacity that should be mentioned. Any code-divers want to enlighten me?--Mitlcl (talk) 00:58, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

If you lose strength but don't actually have enough strength left, you lose maximum HP instead. So don't eat killer bee corpses at a strength of 3 just because the strength can't go down anymore at that point; you'll trash your hit points if you do. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 06:09, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Ranger d6 - why?

Anyone happen to know why rangers get a d6? (This appears particularly problematic for gnome rangers...) - Actual-nh (talk) 05:02, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
