First of all I wanted to greet you. I’ve wanted to participate in these forums for a long time and be part of this very particular community.
A few months ago I finally decided to get into Burning Wheel and the truth is that I fell completely in love with the game. It’s been a long time since a role-playing game has challenged me so much. I feel that when I go through the pages of the book I am discovering something that I have waited all my life.
Anyway, the last few months I have been studying the game, I convinced my group to play, I directed the “The Sword” scenario, then we put together our own characters and last night we had our first session of the “Isle of Mist” campaign.
For that I was reviewing the book and there is a specific rule that I do not understand:
In reference to the treatment and recovery of a wound, in the chapter “The Anatomy of Injury”, page 494 (BWGR), the book says that after recovering from a Mortal Wound, the character must recover from the other existing wounds, but Isn’t that the case with all other wounds besides Mortal Wounds?
That is, if a character has a Midi and a Severe Wound, he must recover from both wounds, I suppose starting with the most serious (the Severe). If so, why clarify that Mortal Wounds “heals differently from the other wounds” (p494 BWGR).
I was hoping that, if it’s not a bother, someone from these forums can help me.
Thank you very much,
