A hero's healthpower goes up by 4 per level. Health is used in combat to count the hero's stamina and ability to withstand damage. When a hero's health is low, the hero must either heal themselves, receive an "Encourage" from their god (which does not always heal), rest to restore some health, or go into a town and get healed. There are other various ways of being healed, such as random events or being teleported to the arena, but these are the most common. If a hero loses all their healthpower, the hero is dead and must be ressurected by their god in the Temple.
