My ranger was struck low while fighting a terrible winged tiger last night. I was able to get treatment from a local witch doctor and managed to pass my Tramatic Wound Recovery. However, I botched my Midi recovery rol;l and now I’ve been “Blinded in One Eye.” Mechanically this gives me a -1D Perception and drops the stat cap to 7. Now, I want to get my eye back.
My questions is to the forum is: How have other players and GM’s delt with this?
Now my character is on a quest to find the componets for a healing potions that will cure his affliction. I’ve also considering seeking a magical replacement or enlisting the help of the Faithful.
A miracle would fix that in a moment. Getting a wizard to enchant something (say, an eye?) with Second Sight or Celestial Sight would work. Killing a demon, ripping out his eye, and sticking it in the hole might work (hand of vecna, anyone?).
Templar21 threw out a possible complication of failure at the table, and I rather liked it: if he goes ahead and collects a bunch of reagents to make this potion to cure his eye (the likely side quest for this whole thing), the consequence isn’t that it doesn’t work - it’s that his orcish nature takes over more.
He was thinking Cold Black Blood. I’m thinking Loathsome and Twisted.
That’s fine. I’ve already been hammered with social stigmata for being Fey Blood [Fanged and Clawed]. I can deal with that better then the +2Ob for being in sunlight. It’s not like we’re on a boat heading towards a desert nation.
Sure Loathsome and Twisted makes me a monster, but I’d be a monster with access to Hatred rooted open ended skills and abities. Poisonous Platitudes and Summon Fury are at the top of that list. That’s ok with me.
Alternatively, I’ll just make a Believe about a magical eye being in the stolen treasure we’re after.
