Kind of want to redefine some of D&D's traditional but arcane terminology to tie rules to fiction. Like....
AC: Armaments carried. (Gonna have to use ascending AC, natch.) Being encased in armor or bristling with weapons makes you harder and scarier to attack.
HD: Heroic deeds. Each time you preform a task of legendary proportions, you advance in power and influence. (I guess monsters do horrific deeds?)

I hacked Searchers of the Unknown to run games inspired by Dark Souls. Not quite sure what to do with it yet, but it was fun to make! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gdEm18vsGkCCVnziiHqQsJ2nTpWgp-WHysp7y9THhDM/edit?usp=sharing
Hey, folks, I'm having a bit of trouble making ends meet this month, so if you wouldn't mind buying some of my games at parenthesispress.itch.io or drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/10096/Parenthesis-Press that would be great. And if you aren't in the mood to buy something, could you at least boost the post, please? Thanks a lot!
This take on "power" as actions plus supplemental HP is probably how I SHOULD have been doing the Stamina rules in Exhumed, my soulslike hack for Into the Odd:

I decided that post I just wrote needed a better title. The link's the same, but now it's titled, "That time we killed the AntiPhoenix." https://pretendo.games/2019/04/06/play-report-veins-of-the-earth/
