Resting/Healing

Will there be options with regard to healing during resting?  I never liked how 5e just lets you heal all HP after a long rest.  Will we have the option of not having that take effect after a long rest?

Although I agree with you that healing fully after one night rest is not immersive and ridiculous (unless the DM adds a house-rule for serious wounds), I think the majority of D&D fans and gamers will appreciate if Solasta respects D&D 5th edition as much as possible.  Otherwise said, it might depend on how the supporting community behind Solasta reacts to changing the rules a bit.  Maybe the company could create a few polls to see...

Well, I didn't expect anyone to complain about a base rule being too friendly :)

I admit we didn't consider making that optional, but we know players of this kind of games like to have tons of options, so we'll see about that.

It would be wonderful if we had an option to spend one or more hit die during a long rest instead of getting all HP back.  Those that want to fully regenerate can choose that option and those that like a more gritty game can tailor their healing to mimic the way they play at the table.  I am begging for this.  Thank you for your response.  I'll be backing the kickstarter as this looks tremendous so far.

Could be something for the planned higher difficulty settings? Something along the lines of how heroic adventuring (easy mode) and gritty realism (hard mode) are laid out in the DMG?

I personally don't have any problems with my party healing to full after a long rest. It's D&D after all. If you start with immersion and realism and go further down that rabbit hole, you start to wonder why armor makes you harder to hit instead of reducing incoming damage and so on...

I feel it can add so much to the tactical aspects this game offers, if they can make it an option somehow.  I will admit that I am not very hopeful that they would proceed with this option as it seems like the majority likes the 5e resting RAW.
