Die Harder

Prerequisite Endurance, Diehard, Iron Will, Toughness


When reduced to -9 hit points, you remain stable. At this point, you begin to use your strength score as though they were additional hit points. Each point of damage you take reduces your strength score by 1 (this counts as ability damage). Once your strength score reaches 0 you immediately die.

When reduced to negative hit points, you may choose to act as if you were disabled, rather than dying. You must make this decision as soon as you are reduced to negative hit points (even if it isn’t your turn). If you do not choose to act as if you were disabled, you immediately fall unconscious.

When using this feat, you can take either a single move or standard action each turn, but not both, and you cannot take a full round action. You can take a move action without further injuring yourself, but if you perform any standard action (or any other action deemed as strenuous, including some free actions, swift actions, or immediate actions, such as casting a quickened spell) you take 1 point of damage after completing the act. If you reach 0 strength, you immediately die.


A character with diehard usually dies once reaching -10 hp.
