First Aid

Effects

First Aid heals your character; the more First Aid you have, the higher the chance will be that you will heal yourself after combat, and the more damage you can heal. Healing yourself gives this message:

After the combat, you patch yourself up, healing <x> hit points.

First Aid also increases the hit points gained from resting. Each level of First Aid you have gives a 10% bonus to the base hit point gains of the area you're in, rounding down. For example, resting in The Docks (which normally gives 15 HP) with 3 points of First Aid will restore 19 HP. See resting for details.

Notes

The items in the second column do not count when you are using first aid to help someone else heal, through choice encounters for example. (Health Glow, Personal Certainty and Coagulation have not been tested, but it makes sense narratively).

First aid improves the effects of the organ transport box.
