So today I'm playing a little D&D with my son. I just got in the Advanced Edition Companion so I'm feeling all retro - and his fighter Dennis gets knocked down to negative one for hit points. It's been 20 odd years since I've read the dying rules, so I start digging through the AEC for the rules about bleeding from 0 HPs and they dying at -10 - but nothing. Nowhere. Hmm.
What the hell? An AD&D emulator with no 'dying' emulation? Was that not thought neccisary? Just the old 0 HP and you are dead?
So my quesiton is - how do you handle hit points and dying? Zero is death? Negative ten? Something else? And why?
