Hit Points or HP are basically your 'health'. Lose all your Hit Points, and you kick the bucket. During combat, wounded characters lose HP. When a character gains a new level, additional HP is awarded. Needless to say, HP is an important character statistic to be monitored during play. HP can be restored using various medical items/food items such as Stimpaks and cups of Tea. HP can also be restored by sleeping, Wanking 'Resting' or paying a doctor.
