Repeal the rule “Mins and Maxes”.

Before the rule “The Adventurers” create a new rule, entitled “HP and Max HP”, as follows:

Certain things in the dynasty have a Max HP value and an HP value. All entities with Max HP have HP and vice versa.

HP defaults to its associated Max HP and can never be greater than that Max HP. All changes to an entity’s HP values are to a minimum of 0 and a maximum of the same entity’s Max HP.

Amend the rule “The Adventurers” (excepting its sub-rules) as follows:

Adventurers have Max HP defaulting to 100. If the HP of an Adventurer other than the Monster becomes 0, that Adventurer becomes Unconscious and remains so for the duration of the Battle occurring at the time, unless and until they are Revived. An Adventurer who is Unconscious cannot perform any Battle Action, and they cannot be affected by any Battle Action other than Revival.

Adventurers also have a Merit score and a Havoc score, both defaulting to zero. If an Adventurer with non-zero Havoc (known as the “Harrowed”) is not the Monster, any Adventurer may add the Harrowed’s Havoc to the Harrowed’s Merit, then set the Harrowed’s Havoc to zero. An Adventurer’s Havoc can never be greater than 1000, and increases to an Adventurer’s Havoc are to a maximum of 1000.

Adventurers have a character sheet, tracked on the Adventurers section of the Jerez wikipage. Character sheets list the following for each Adventurer:

– HP/Max HP: (in the format XX/YY, where XX is their HP and YY is their Max HP)
– Monster: (Yes or No)
– Merit: (a number)
– Havoc: (a number)
– Boons: (a list of their Boons)

More to follow. Please read carefully; the changes are minor, but it would take forever for me to bring them piecemeal.

The change to the max Havoc rule (from referring to Monsters to referring to Adventurers) is a reflection of an Adventurer’s inability to gain Havoc other than as a Monster, and an insurance against abrupt changes to that. Mentioning the maximum value here also prepares the ground for removing the repetition of “1000” from the “Monster” sub-rule.

Details, details. Just don’t go creating a paradox. Wouldn’t want a repeat of that Panic Button incident. for
