I noticed that, with the exception of Goblins, every Origin and Class has a d8 hit dice. An 8-foot tall, 300 pound Troll Warrior has the same hit dice as a four-foot tall Dwarf Mystic. I just wanted to ask if this was intentional, but also balanced?
My understanding of classic 5e D&D is that the hit dice (and therefore hit points) of each class is indicative of their general battlefield role: the d12 barbarian tank vs the d6 sorcerer glass cannon.
If all RoS origins and classes have a unified hit dice, is this for the sake of balancing Corruption against spellcasters? To make martial classes more vulnerable?
I actually like the idea of linking Origins to hit dice because it accounts for the natural build of the character's race, but it seems odd to me that they would all be (except for goblins) the same - especially Ogres and Trolls.
