Hey guys, I want to make a mechanic similar to Darkest Dungeon's Death's Door. It basically goes like, if a party character hits 0 hp, they wouldn't die immediately. Instead they would be placed in a Death's Door state. Death's Door state gives penalty to several stats (such as max hp, etc.) and the next damage has a chance to kill the character (refers as Deathblow). There will be a new Deathblow resist stat that comes with this mechanic. Any idea of the plugins I should use? Or do I have no choice but to learn to code?

EDIT: Forgot to write this but you can get out of Death's Door by getting healed for at least 1 hp.

If you aren't too attached to having them hang out at specifically 0 HP, you can easily make something pretty similar with Yanfly's Lunatic State Pack - Protection and Auto Passive States, and their dependencies.

What I would personally do is make a passive state that applies to the player party (via the passive state plugin), and has the following notetags on it:
<HP Protection: Guts 100%>, which means if they have more than 1 HP, they'll survive any lethal attacks with 1 HP.
<HP Protection: True Guts 50%>, which gives them a 50% chance of surviving even if they're already at 1 HP. You can change the % however you want.
<HP Protection: Trigger Add State ###>, which applies a status effect of your choice whenever they survive a lethal blow. Replace ### with the ID of your Death's Door debuff status.

This wouldn't account for a Deathblow Resist stat- if you want that, you'll need to learn at least a little scripting, and same for having the characters hang around with HP at 0 instead of 1.

Who wants to see my review of the worst star wars movie? This movie has all the excitement of being on Jury Duty of the most boring case ever about trade negotiations.
A lot to learn to make a game. Can I handle it?
I've been working on status effects since last thursday, and today I finished the core mechanic of Zombie, Teleport, Curse and Recall. Zombie and Curse are lacking a few things to make them complete atm. Teleport though is the "HAHA" spell for some of my mobs, but can "NOPE" at them with Recall.
