Attacks, spells, and other dangers deal damage (page 406). The amount is typically determined by a damage roll (page 406), which can use a variety of sizes and numbers of dice.

Damage reduces the Hit Points (HP) (page 410) that measure a creature's overall health or an object's durability. A creature might have immunity to damage or effects of certain kinds, a resistance that reduces the damage it takes, or a weakness that increases damage it takes (page 408). These are typically keyed to damage types (page 409) such as slashing damage or fire damage.
