Each tribute will roll for their starting health (everyone will start with 5-15 damage). This does not need to be written as actual IC damage. It simply means that tributes will have a varied amount of total health: 25-35hp.
This is to give the games a more manageable pace, but it's also to give everyone a sense of who the first tributes to die will be and prevent that from being based on OOC factors. This damage may be written as wounds from the war, a lack of strength, etc. Please consider making this important to your characterization and make the most of a character's weakness if you roll high damage. Remember, these games are not about competition or victory — they're about the stories and giving the site a fuller history to look back on. It will be as much of an honor to be the first tribute ever killed as it will be to be the first victor.
Tributes who opt not to roll for starting health will be assigned a score of 15 starting damage.
Please roll or note that you are electing not to roll as soon as possible. You are highly encouraged to do this before starting your tribute's bio.
