When you are taken to exactly 0hp, you get a Scar. Your first Scar adds d6hp to your Maximum.
Scars only occur in deadly situations, not training.
|Roll d6 plus the damage caused by the attack|
|2||Busted Foot||Reduced to a limp until fixed.|
|3||Lasting Pain||A nasty scar that causes intense pain if pressed on.|
|4||Busted Lung||Your breathing is loud and you cough up blood often. It’s gross.|
|5||Smashed Jaw||You lose a lot of teeth and get a speech impediment.|
|6||Bloody Mess||It needs lots of Stitches, and you don’t benefit from Resting until it’s done by a someone who knows how.|
|7||Shaken Nerves||You stammer, twitch, or shake, unless you use something to calm your nerves.|
|8||Disfigurement||The injury leaves your face totally disfigured.|
|9||Mind Splinter||A specific element of this injury is stuck in your psyche. Lose d6 Intelligence each time you're forced to confront it.|
|10||Gouged Eye||A random eye is gouged out.|
|11||Obsession||Do not benefit from rests until you achieve revenge.|
|12||Hewn Limb||One of your limbs (1: right arm, 2: left arm, 3: right leg, 4: left leg) is torn off or in need of amputation.|
|13||Terrible Fracture||A random limb (1: right arm, 2: left arm, 3: right leg, 4: left leg) is broken in the worst way. It can be set by someone who knows how, but until then you cannot use it, or benefit from Rests.|
|14||Lost Sense||One of your senses is lost (1: Sight, 2: Hearing, 3: Scent, 4: Taste).|
|15||Heart Damage||This vital organ is in critical state. If you suffer this Scar again, you die.|
|16||Shadow of Death||You feel a cold hand on your shoulder and have nightmares. Any time you sleep, pass a Wisdom Save or scream through the night.|
|17||Fractured Skull||You drool and slur. If you suffer this affliction a second time your skull is utterly split open and you die.|
|18+||Doomed to Die||You shouldn't have survived that. You have nightmares of your own death. If you fail your next risky Save, you die horribly. If you pass, remove this effect.|
