In 5e RAW your starvation clock resets if you have a normal day of eating.
I changed that to “you have to eat triple” otherwise people would just start eating every third day instead of every day. But… I also just saw that exhaustion levels don’t go away if you don’t eat. So there is still some risk to not eating.
These are my current house rules (the “Eating humanoid” stuff is from Veins of the Earth):
This is 5e RAW:
Sure, days without food is bad because you don’t get rid of exhaustion but… you rarely have exhaustion anyway. It seems to me that it is way too mild to go completely without food.
Veins of the Earth have it that for the first three days, you reset by eating normally. On days 4 through 6, you reset by eating double. And on days 7 and beyond, you reset by eating triple. But… still, you can eat only every third day w/o problem?
I want to get this right because this is right now what looks to be the thing that is going to kill the party
