have no action points
. However, creatures
can gain action points
by taking levels in a heroic character class. Every time a creature picks up a heroic class level, it gains a number of action points
equal to 5 + one-half its heroic character level (not counting the creature's starting Hit Dice). Like most heroic characters, however, creatures
with heroic class levels will have spent a certain number of action points
in the course of their "heroic" careers.
Assume that a creature
has a number of action points
remaining equal to one-half of its heroic class levels.
