They make great villians - the big time enemy. I give one or two out for the 'villian of the piece' but I don't do it often. It keeps the heroes on their toes.

I think its a part of the job description. ALl playerbands seem to have that.

Hmmm. I think you could always do with a 'you spend x downtime' get x HP to spend. But I think there are ways to raise your keyword with HP - we've been experimenting with a 7 or 10 HP cost to raise the keyword. Yes, this is a bargain.

where they spent 10-12 HP EACH in the course of a melee (like where the 98 year old shaman had to hand-to-hand with the vampire) and since then I've switched to more directed increases and fewer HP awards.

Yow! That's a LOT of HP.
