"attempt to perform arithmetic (div) on nil" means you're trying to use the / (division) operator on something that is nil (has no value), and the only sign of division I see is on "Base.CurrentHealth / Base.MaxHealth".

Looking at your code you have a function Base.Setup that assigns values to both Base.CurrentHealth and Base.MaxHealth, but I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the code you specified, possibly the reason why your properties are nil.
