Dungeon World continues to be the awesomesauce. Here’s a question that came up last night, though: when you have hirelings and you use one as a warrior/man-at-arms, then roll a partial success or failure on your hack and slash, and the man-at-arms takes the brunt of the monster attack, what happens to the hireling? I assume it’s just the GM deciding what’s appropriate, but being that they don’t have HP, I just wanted to make sure. Or should it be like the protector/sentry ability that reduces the hireling’s skill until they can heal up?
For the record, the ruling I made in the moment was just to kill the hireling outright. He was just a thug (1 skill, 1 other skill, 0 loyalty), and one of a dozen, so no love lost there.
