Survival and Exposure rule

Recommended Posts

The exposure rules state that exposure starts usually after CON hours.

So if I had a 10 in CON I could sleep in below freezing weather for 9 hours with no effect. Just with suitable clothing. And if I make my roll, 9 more hours with no effect. Even if I fail, I only have 1 level of fatigue.

This don't seem right. Am I missing something?

Suitable clothing for below freezing weather would be the equivalent of

Inuit outdoor clothing. And take a look at the exposure rates depending

on the temperature, the wind speed and thelike, see page 129.

I wonder where they get this information.

Usually its a mixture of research and personal experience. Wherever we can, we look into what's realistic rather than just making stuff up. There's plenty of documentation on survival rates, ambient temperatures, exposure effects, wind-chill and so on.

Plus, Pete lives in the far north of Sweden where it gets exceedingly cold. The town he lives in is a garrison, lots of very good, accurate, local source material.
