## Maximum hit points

The maximum amount of hit points a player has is mostly controlled by their bonus in adventuring.health. There is also an effect from the player's weight.

Max HP = floor( (150 + 10 * con + 4 * ad.he bonus) * weight-factor )

## Hit point regeneration

The rate at which hitpoints regenerate is controlled by the player's constitution and strength stats, with a stronger emphasis on the former. Specifically, it is:

HP regen per round = rounddown(sqrt(200/9.8 * (4 * ln(con) + ln (str)) - 50) - 10)
