Medicine

Post by jdidds » Wed Jul 16, 2014 3:15 pm

Is there currently any use for this skill IG? If not, is there any sort of idea as to when the various ailements etc will come in to play? Or are the crafts / skills purely for RP purposes?

Medicine might have some crafts down the line to make medical supplies, but as of now there is a use for it, it increases your chances of passing skill checks for treating wounds. First-Aid, Medicine and Education all help with that, alongside the quality of the item you use to treat someone.

Basically, medicine serves as a minimum roll for your first-aid check, and education serves as a minimum for your medicine.

Also, back in Atonement, it was medicine that determined how well you extracted bullets from someone, so maybe it's still used in removing arrows?

Where is this education skill you speak of? I do not see it in the skill page of chargen.

It's RPP-closed, currently, as is steal(steal/palm).

In atonement, it also determined how quickly you recovered from serious wounds like fractures. That would be kinda neat here, though the orcs would be at a serious disadvantage if that was implemented. I doubt there are too many orc colleges for advanced medicine.

Steal and picklock open at 1 RPP. How many do we need for education?
