Hit Points

Hit points are your health. When you run out of hit points, you are "beaten all to hell" and will need to heal before you can adventure again.

Your maximum hit points are equal to 20 + the lower of {Strength and Will}. See also use your highest Attribute to calculate Hit Points and Empowered for ways to alter your max hit points.

The Undying Will skill will calculate your as just 20 + Will; Strength is ignored.

If you have 0 hp but but gain enough experience to boost the lower of your strength or will (and therefore your hitpoints), you get the message "You drag yourself back to your feet with a newfound strength." This can occur after combat (e.g. a draw), or anytime you can get XP while at 0 hp (e.g. crafting with Good Worker).

Regaining Hit Points

Everyday at "rollover", when you regain Energy, Hunger, and Body, you will be healed up to your maximum hit points. There are many other ways to heal yourself after taking damage.
