IJBM: HP stands for "hit points" rather than "health points"

in Tech
Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
But they're not the number of times you can hit things; they're the number of times you can get hit, and you add to them by recovering health.


  • There is love everywhere, I already know
    1. Probably some sort of JP-EN-JP Translation thing
    2. I think it some games it does stand for "Health Points"
    3. It sounds cool
  • "you duck spawn, refined creature, you try to be cynical, yokel, but all that comes out of it is that you're a dunce!!!!! you duck plug!"
    Didn't it come from D&D? If so, blame wargame slang from the Seventies.
  • I guess not using "health" makes sense when it needs to cover things like machines or undead.
