Great work but I'm very confused on how HP work (I feel.like a dolt)
1420 BEASTS & BARROWS
A downloadable system
This is a mashup of my own game, Beasts & Barrows, 2400 & a smattering of Into the Odd. I'm currently playtesting and am HAPPY to get playtest feedback from others. Names, mechanics, layout may be changed to protect the innocent? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- no stats; only skills
- d6 dice pool for rolls
- Health Points (same as B&B)
- Advancement blatantly stolen with little remorse from ItO

No worries… this was the hardest part for me to verbalize. Let’s say you’re level 2. Build your dice pool:
- you’re level 2 so you get 2 d6s
- is there a healer in your party? If so, add another d6
- are you in a sacred place? If so, another d6
- ROLL ’EM! and keep the highest 2 (your level)
ok, that makes sense
Is this done before every adventure or only when leveling up?
I let players roll whenever they rest in comfort and safety. Once they roll high, they often stick where they are :)
I like the randomness… I mean, some days we wake up feeling like crap for no reason ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Others we feel great! That kinda thing.
This is wonderful.
