Hollywood Healing

Armory: Reloaded Page 153

In the movies, that which doesn’t kill you… usually doesn’t slow you down much. As long as a character can get some brief medical attention, even a wound that would, in real life, require months of painful therapy and rehab to heal can be shrugged off. Rationale: Anyone who has ever seen a Hollywood action movie has seen the hero take a bullet right through the shoulder (in reality, a crippling injury likely to permanently reduce the victim’s mobility) and, a few moments later with some gauze taped over it and the arm in a sling, he’s back in the saddle, fighting the bad guys with gusto-until some bastard punches him in the injured shoulder and, suddenly, the wound is a plot point again. This hack adds the Patch Up action related to Medicine.
