    Clarification on Rehabilitation

    Post by cenobyte on Mon 20 Apr 2009 - 15:09

    It has come to my attention that Af, the Archangel of Bitternes and Trauma, was handing out Trauma like little candies last night. Little, bitter candies.

    In those terms, I'd like to just remind you how Rehabilitation works - the action has been clarified in this latest edit.

    So. Here it is: to heal Normal Trauma (healing Lingering Trauma is *much* more difficult, and will be dealt with in a separate post, should the need arise), you must take a Rehabilitation action in the downtime. You *must* put Effort or Secular Power toward this Action. Please see the Trauma section or the Secular System chart in the book for information on how you can get Inspirations/Advantages on this action. Risk generates a Hindrance for you on the Healing Test.

    Healing Trauma is done in two steps: the Rehabilitation Action and the Healing Test (done at the beginning of each game, usually).

    Your Rehabilitation Action is not a "test". It's a downtime action.

    For your Healing Test, you compare your Dynamic Mind or Dynamic Soul against the Difficulty of the Test.

    1. For every Difficulty rank you achieve on your Rehabilitation action, you get a Healing Test:
      - You get one Healing Test at High (8) Difficulty when you achieve a Low (2) Success on the Rehab Action;
      - You get another Healing Test at Moderate (5) Difficulty when you achieve a Moderate (5) Success on the Rehabilitation Action;
      - You get a third Healing Test at Low (2) Difficulty when you achieve a Hard (8) Success on the Rehabilitation Action.
    2. If your Healing Test is unsuccessful (you do not heal the Trauma), you do not lose the Marks you have gained in your Rehabilitation Action.
    3. Normal Derioration applies to Rehabilitation marks if you do not put Effort or Secular Power toward further healing. You MUST use Effort or Secular Power to attempt to reach a further Difficulty Level.
    4. For Surface or Severe Trauma, if you achieve an Epic Success (15) on your Rehabilitation Action, your Trauma is automatically healed.
    5. You can never 'automatically' heal Mortal Trauma - the Difficulty for the Healing Test never drops below Low (2). Once you achieve an Epic Success for your Rehabilitation Action, you can continue to roll your Healing Test once a month at a Low (2) Difficulty, provided you continue to allocate Effort or Secular Power toward the action in downtime (it doesn't matter if the Effort generates Marks once you have achieved an Epic Success on your Rehab, but you *do* have to continue to 'work toward your goal').

    Am I correct in my reading of the above that, with the exception of Epic success on step one, the (small "d") difficulty of healing trauma is not related to the "level" (surface, severe, mortal) of the trauma?

    I believe you are reading that correctly. You take the exact same steps to heal Trauma, regardless of what kind of Trauma or the severity of Trauma.

    You get the same Healing Tests (whose Difficulties are based on the inverse of the level of Success you achieved on the Rehab action) regardless of the kind or severity of Trauma you are trying to heal.

    It's just more difficult to heal Mortal Trauma (the Difficulty never goes below 2), and it's nearly impossible to heal Lingering Trauma.

    Did that answer the question you were asking?

    Yes. I like a rule change! I like a rule change!

    It's less "realistic" but far simpler that what was in the BRB. For me that is a good thing.

    Uhhhh....this is exactly what was in the book, with the exception that the Marks you get deteriorate. The Severity of the Trauma you were trying to heal never had a variable difficulty.

    Seriously, nothing has changed except for that one line. And I think that one line is really just a further clarification, not anything new.

    Then wow does that book not translate well when going into my brain.

    This is how I thought it worked when I read the Secular Actions section of the book but I understood completely differently when I read the Trauma section.

    To clarify, my last comment was a criticism of my brain not of the game. (not that I don't have criticisms about the game, it just that my last statement wasn't one of them). I re-looked over the book and I think I now see how it says what Jill says it says.

    "says it says", sounds funny when I say it.

    I always find it interesting how when two people hear the same thing or read the same sentence, they can come away with different interpretations.

    I also find it interesting how water swirls in eddies and whorls when deep puddles are draining into sewer grates. BUt that's different.

    Is it really all that different when you stop and truly think about it.

    Yeah. I guess. But it's sometimes less endampsulating in the first case.
