HEALTH - Lusternia Online Help

5.1 HEALTH

Health represents your physical well-being. When your health (which you can see
by typing SCORE or by putting PROMPT STATS on - see HELP PROMPT) reaches 0, you
will, barring some special abilities and protections, die.

Your maximum health may be increased in many ways: 

- by rising in level,
- by acquisition of artifacts,
- via various magical means, and
- by completing certain quests

Higher maximum health is always better than lower! Some player-vs-player skills
cause damage partly based on maximum health. This means that with higher
maximum health you should expect an increase in some damage received from other
players, though the increase is not as great as the increase in health. In any
case, you will definitely take more damage before dying, which is the important
thing.

Later in this section of help files, in HELP RECOVERY, you will read about how
to recover lost health.
