Brainiac

(no subject)

So, I'm fucking around with D20, and a realisation hits me: Accumulating hit points are one of the most retarded things to ever occur in a game. Seriously, especially if you take the D&D "hero field" bollocks as an explanation, the whole concept is brain-damaged.

Thus, I ask: Does anyone with a passing familiarity of D20 know of any fixes to this system? I've heard the Star Wars one wasn't too bad, but don't have access. And in case anyone is going to say "Don't have them accumulate then" that's all well and good but hideously out of whack with the scaling of weapons, powers and other such things.

In other news, Unknown Armies earlier. catnik and zombie_moogle reminded me what good online roleplaying is all about.
