(E) Battlefield Aide

  • Attribute:  Knowledge
  • Type:  Utility
  • Time:  Four actions
  • Description:  This is a quick type of aide that can be used to bind wounds and perform basic battlefield care while in combat. It can be used to treat both Health and Body damage to a limited extent. Treating Health damage has a base (-o-) difficulty and restores a number of points equal to the target's healing rate plus one per two skill points in Scoutcraft. There's a difficult (-4) modifier to treat body damage; it restores a number of points equal to the target's healing rate and halts bleed out damage. Disable damage may be treated, restoring use of the limb or appendage at a difficult (-4) modifier until more advance treatment is provided. A medical kit is required to use this skill; without it there's an additional difficult (-4) modifier to the skill check. Once combat ends, additional aide may be performed to treat any existing Health or body damage.
  • Example of use:  Wrap a wound to stop bleeding, reset a joint to restore mobility, etc.
  • Prerequisites:  The First Aide skill and four skill points in Scoutcraft
