So by that post, HP is definitely rest mass, I think. Relativistic collision damage would be calculated by substituting in the proper formula for T — that is, T=mγc^2-mc^2.
I shouldn't do math at four in the morning. It starts conversations like this.

So the other night my gaming group, with a grand total of 2 players, was wandering around in a goblin lair built into a mountain too close to town. A Jelly had been killing and eating all the goblins and my group decided it was best to grab a torch and light the jelly on fire. P1: "I grab a torch off the wall and throw it at the jelly." Me: "You throw too well and the back end of the torch sticks in the gels body without lighting it." P1: "..." And then later the Ranger picked up a book and was blasted with a vision that caused him to pass out. P1: OOC: Did he S***t himself? me: yes. P2: I roll to see if I retain my dignity. (Rolls a 2) me: your pants fall down and you fall on the remains of the goblin's loincloth, dignity not retained!

Fighter: "...Its amazing what he can do with a few bits of string and a litre of oil." Cleric: "Give me 100 litres of oil, and I can destroy an army...give me 1000 litres of Oil, and I could rule the world."

My wife's spy character to the Russian sentries who have just caught her trying to sneak into a secret arctic base in a Cold War era espionage campaign. There really was a mechanical tuna; the captain of the super-sub she is currently on designs robotic marine life in his spare time, and she had deployed one of them to the other side of the island as a diversion. And this was about the time the robot fish exploded.
