Gundrabu desperately tries to unravel the clamps from his back but suddenly feels the ground give way underneath him and his stomach flips as he grasps at mid-air!

The theory is should I have long hair and keeps me warm in the winter, or short hair and helps in summer, when it gets too warm.

I agree, a method must work to suit those using it. I just stating, Method I is scary and should with logic gain a lot more character death, but it just: 1) sentimental evaluation; where it was how I original played game and 2) this game is a horror story and these low attributes and hit points add to the horror and 3) ah, what was three again. Still good fun, I must admit!

Oh, yeah, just remember three, totally agree with hit points, a fighter could roll 1 hp at 1st-level, then 2 hp at 2nd: aaaagh. I rolled a few NPCs with such low hp, but to me it mean character has to use more tactics to survived than those who get high rolls or max at 1st-level. 

When I did my first PbP Conan D20, It stated that each player after first level rolled a 1d6. so for warriors (1d10 HD) the 1-2 was a 8, the 3-4 was a 9 and the 5-6 a 10, same theory for other classes. Still I did not make it easy for them ingame; but to me it no fun for a player who keeps roll 1hp each time they go up a level. Getting a level should be fun, not ah ya bastard, I just rolled a 1 again!

Assuming you mean his original and not the pack he had in his arms before he slipped?

Make a d6 Dex feat.

Yep! The pack in my hands goes sliding down along with me or before me as I flounder back and forth, wrestling myself out of my pack. Then I seize my crampons. (As I think this through, it does seem most natural that they would be tied to the exterior of the bag).

D6 - 4!
