I had house-ruled away the rest time required to recover from almost dying. I am reversing my ruling. I forgot one key ingredient from old school play: multiple characters. If your character needs rest/ recovery/ quest/ training time and the party can't or doesn't want to wait for them, roll up a secondary character. It never hurts to have different skill sets to bring to bear for different adventures. Please only roll 1 set of stats and use that character - do not roll until you get the character you want. You are on the honor system for this.
