Last week my party was three characters.
Dunwick, Israfil, and Adria, and they’d broken into The Castle of Thorns, a twisted undead mockery of the elven Castle Briars. They wished to recover the Seal of the Duchess of Barrowcross which was being used to authorize and sign for trades after being stolen. They managed to sneak into the castle, and had met with the Butler (a Vampyr) of the castle. After some pleasantries, they decided to sneak deeper into the castle, where the vines of the castle attacked them!
Adria began to pray to her Druidic deities and tried to control the castle, though not being confident took extra time, leaving the castle to attack her allies. Dunwick, being unlucky, took a B8 wound, which, due to it being thorns, I ruled abrasions.
Attempting to flee once the castle was bound in magic, Israfil decided to fight the Vampyr in a Bloody Versus to cover the escape, though taking a B5 wound (ruled a Burn due to it being from the soulless chill of the Vampyr).
Once they’d escaped to the abandoned town nearby Adria started attempting to clean and dress wounds.
She managed to successfully get Dunwick’s severe wound healed, and give him some extra Health dice. He rolled 3 successes over the obstacle on his Recovery test.
Then then failed to heal Israfil’s light wound due to bad luck.
Dunwick I think, with 3 successes over the Obstacle is recovered in 4 weeks, and at -1D until then. Since it reduces healing by two steps. That’s correct - right? I keep wondering if I’m supposed to reduce it to 3 weeks per step.
This is the main one. Israfil’s player thinks that “Deterioration increases by one step” means that he now has a maximum deterioration of 4 (as a Burn it can deteriorate 3 steps, plus one from the failed healing), but I think he has a maximum deterioration of 3 steps, but the wound is now Midi and not Light.
Which of us is correct?
