Each player and NPC in the game has a set amount of health. When the entity takes damage, whether it be from environmental causes such as fall damage or attacks from other entities, the receiving entity's health statistic will drop by a set amount. When an entity's health drops to zero, it dies.
There are many ways in which an entity's health may drop. Damage may be inflicted through either environmental means or from an attack by another entity. Different NPCs, and different types of an NPC, do more damage than others. Weapons such as swords or axes can be used to increase damage to an opponent. Both environmental and attack damage can be reduced by equipping armor, and attack damage can be reduced using a shield.
