I had done this from memory without checking - I actually multiply by 1 -
sqr(1 - (current / max)). This gives a 0% penalty for a 100% healthy
character, a 100% penalty for a 0% healthy character, and a 25% penalty for
a 50% healthy character. I expect there is a better formula to obtain that
curve, but it doesn't come to mind right now :)
