Character hit points are based on levels as shown on the Experience per Level tables for each class. At the beginning of every new level, the player will roll another d6 and add the result to his character’s existing hit point total. All hit dice are rolled on d6.
Hit points are the most important statistic to a player, as they tell the player how badly injured the character is, or how close to death. Once a character reaches zero hit points or below he is declared dead. The player may roll up a new character to join the party once the GM decides the time and place is right, such as between adventures, in a town where it is safe.
