Hello everyone.

The way that EPT uses the term "Hit Dice" seems to be a little vague.

Hit dice are normally Hit Points, but it seems to be talking about them as attack dice rolls too.

There is also something about higher level characters using more dice... Anyone care to help clarify this?

So I asked around on this forum:

It seems that a lot of people house rule this because it can seem a bit vague.

It looks like the high stats give you bonuses to attack (Hit Dice), and that bonuses to Damage Dice are a bonus to the actual roll of the dice like standard D&D. Interestingly a high Con doesn't give you any additional Hit Points, or at least my interpretation of the rules gives me that impression.

So if you had +2 Hit Dice, you would roll a D20 and add 2 to the attack roll.

If you had +2 Damage Dice you would roll the damage listed for your weapon plus any additional damage dice (D6s) for being a higher level vs a lower level target, and then add +2 to the total.
