Points Description
10 You learn that willow bark can be used to relieve aches and fever.
20 You learn that feverfew can be used to reduce tension and headaches.
30 You learn that oil of cloves, rubbed on the skin, can relieve pain, particularly in teeth.
40 Sage has a variety of health benefits: it keeps meat from spoiling, aids digestion, improves thinking, and may even help to bring color back into gray hair.
50 Calendula flowers can be used in soothing teas as well as skin lotions. It is also said to provide visions of one's secret enemies if worn under the light of a full moon.
60 Comfrey can be used to help mend broken bones. However, it is also slightly poisonous in large amounts and should not be eaten.
70 Burdock leaves can be used as a poultice to draw out infection. The roots can be used to flavor a kind of beer, and the stalks can be eaten.
80 The herb valerian calms anxieties and helps bring restful sleep. It is very popular with the nobility.
90 The herb known only as "savory" comes in both winter and summer varieties. Both are useful in treating wasp stings, coughs, and internal gas. They also make a good flavoring for food. Summer savory is an aphrodisiac, while winter savory reduces sexual desire.
100 Jelly made from the berries of the elder tree can cure many illnesses. However, only druids may safely harvest from elder trees; others will be cursed by its touch. Properly treated, elderwood makes staves and pipes for religious ceremonies.

Battlefield MedicineEdit

Points Description
10 You learn that wounds, even minor ones, should be washed as soon as possible to prevent dirt from growing under the skin.
20 You learn that blood loss wastes life energy. Bleeding should be stopped through bandages, pressure, and elevation.
30 You learn that minor burns should be cooled, washed, and gently wrapped to keep them clean, like a cut. Major burns and scalding such as boiling oil are untreatable on the battlefield.
40 You learn that soldiers should never sleep in damp clothes or on damp grounds, this is unhealthy.
50 You learn that latrines, food waste, and burials must be kept far away from living soldiers to avoid spreading disease. Holes should be dug deep and covered after use.
60 You learn that some wounds need to be sewn closed. The needle should first be cleaned by holding it in a flame for a minute or two. Fire should not be applied to the wound; it will make it worse.
70 You learn that piercing arrows should never be pushed through the body; that will make the injury worse. Cut very carefully with a sharp blade to dig the arrowhead out without causing large tears in the flesh.
80 You learn that broken bones should be immobilised with wooden splints to prevent them from moving around. The straight wood will encourage the bone to grow straight.
90 You learn about situations where a crushed or rotten limb must be removed in order to save the rest of the body.
100 A blow to the chest may create a sucking wound which stops the patient from breathing. A special wax bandage is needed to keep air from passing through the wound.

Poison Edit

Points Description
10 The first treatment for most ingested poisons is to purge the stomach by forcing the victim to eat powdered charcoal, which can absorb dangerous substances.
20 Certain poisons will counteract each other, such that either on their own will kill the victim, but carefully applying a matching amount of the other will cure.
30 If a victim is stabbed with the poisoned spine of a sea urchin, the spine must be removed carefully and the affected area soaked in very hot water in order to cook out the poison.
40 It is possible to become immune to the venom of a particular snake by routinely ingesting very small amounts. However, this protection is temporary and will not provide any help against other snakes.
50 Cinnabar dust causes tremors, anxiety, and eventually death if ingested over a long term. This is mostly a problem for miners, but it can be dangerous if it is routinely added to someone's food. There is no cure, but most will slowly recover if they have no more dust.
60 The herb tansy is a mild poison with particular effect on lower forms of life. Rubbed on the skin, it repels insects. Drunk as a tea, it drives out worms from the stomach. Unfortunately, this sometimes makes people very ill.
70 Belladonna berries are purple, juicy-looking, and sweet. Eating a handful of them causes blindness followed by death. It can be treated very carefully with a paste of calabar beans, which is also poisonous.
80 The flower known as "black sun" creates a poison which induces violent madness in the victim. In larger doses it produces the same results as belladonna.
90 The foxglove flower is a dangerous poison. Chewing the leaves or drinking water in which they have been soaked is likely to be fatal. Symptoms include dizziness and yellowed vision. Powdered epsomite is the only known antidote.
100 The purple flower known as "woman's bane" is a dangerous poison with no antidote. Touching it causes the body to go cold, then numb, then die within hours. A rapid charcoal purge may sometimes save the victim.
