    It's funny, I don't have an issue with the mechanical effect (i.e. abstraction of hp), but the thought of a character casually jumping down 30 feet because its player knows it can take the 3d6 damage bugs me enough to shake me out of my immersion.
    I have no choice but to view this sort of thing as an opportunity for worldbuilding. Case in point.
