  • AD&D 2E
  • D&D 3/3.5
  • Savage Worlds (including Necessary Evil)
  • Paranoia

comment My party doesn't want to get rid of an unbalanced house rule
I did not down-vote you, but I suspect the reason you're getting them is because this answer feels incomplete, and thus unhelpful. Just pointing out the higher HP pool isn't enough: what do you do now that you have a higher HP pool? If everything stays status-quo, then players never have to worry about their HP. So, then what? You increase damage, or you add more monsters, or... something.

@edgerunner Do you think I'd get a better response from the Parenting SE? (I don't.)
