How does a character die in ME?
Every character has a cyclic action that runs once a day that is called ConsumeGlut. When this action runs:
- Takes off 16% glut;
- Checks if the health of the character is 0;
- Checks if the glut of the character is 0.
- Guglielmo has 0% Health and 10% glut. ConsumeGlut runs at 20:00 each day. ConsumeGlut runs and checks that Guglielmo has 0% Health => Guglielmo dies
- Guglielmo has 10% Health and 0% glut. ConsumeGlut runs at 20:00 each day. ConsumeGlut runs and checks that Guglielmo has 0% Glut => ConsumeGlut subtracts 10% Glut. Now Guglielmo has 0% Health and 0% glut but can survive another day.
If the character glut is 0, then the action takes off 10% of health. If the character health is 0 (0%), then the character dies.
How does a character lose or gain glut?
A character loses glut while doing actions. Additionally, every 24 hours 16% glut is taken off by the action ConsumeGlut. Glut can be replenished by Eating.
When does ConsumeGlut apply?
ConsumeGlut doesn't check for health when the char is in meditation or is recovering. So if the character is in these two statuses, he can't die.
Consumeglut doesn't check for glut nor removes 10% glut if the character:
- is imprisoned;
- is recovering;
- is in meditation.
How does a character lose health?
A character may lose health while fighting, is hungry or is sick. Health can be replenished while Recovering, by drinking or eating, or by using some specific items, like Medical Kit or Herb and Honey Brew.
