Godfall offers characters multiple ways to advance beyond what a normal D&D character could. We also want to encourage different play styles and 5e largely favors damage dealers over healers or tanks. For instance a character who repeatedly drops in combat should be severely exhausted afterwards but in 5e you can simply rest for an hour and generally be none worse for the wear. As such we use the following rules to make damage and death have more depth, feel more important and to encourage multiple play styles.
Dropping to 0 Hit Points
Whenever you would fall unconscious from taking damage you additionally suffer one level of exhaustion.
Healing Exhaustion During Downtime
Outside of a game session you may may heal 1 rank of exhaustion by spending 1 CP to do so. You do not heal exhaustion automatically outside of game and can die from exhaustion if it’s not kept in check.
