I’m Dming BW for the first time for six of my friends. While playing through “The Duchy Verdorben” a question about advancement arose. Is it possible to get back up from a Health exponent of 0?
During the adventure a character inhaled a toxic fume which caused a health test, the margin of error determined how much health he will permanently lose.
Now i don’t know how common it is to permanently lose attribute points, but it explicitly said these points can only be regained through advancement. Furthermore the test that determined how much he loses was a challenging test, would it then be possible to drop to 0 health but through advancement gain a point back right away? How many marked tests would be required to go from 0 to 1?
For now the character fell into a comatose state, I will discuss the options with the player depending on your answers.
Edit: changed stat points to attribute points
