|Warriors Experience Table, SWN, pg 21|
Now, in all my years, I've been under the impression that when you level, you take your Hit Die and roll - then add your new hit points (and perhaps CON mod) to your existing hit point pool. Everyone I've ever dealt with has been in agreement - it seems to be intuitive.
Stars Without Number has classes, levels, and hit points similar to D&D, but apparently, that's not the way you do it. From page 23 in Stars Without Number, under the heading Hit Points:
"Don’t worry too much if you roll a low number. As your character gains experience they will gain more hit points and the chance to reroll poor dice. Some GMs may choose to omit the initial roll entirely and simply start new characters with the maximum possible hit points."Unless I'm misreading, this seems to imply for SWN that, you reroll your hit point every level. It's an interesting concept, if it is indeed the concept here. Has anyone heard of such a thing?
