Would you mind posting some examples for what constitutes "Rough Travel" on page 78 for Natural Healing? Would flying a plane or driving a car be rough?
Up to the GM to make that call, but as a frame of reference, I'd say that anything that counts as Difficult Terrain or requires a roll to travel through (like flying through a storm) would definitely count as rough traveling.
And "Medical Attention" doesn't mean bed rest, right? Could you go to your day job and avoid that penalty if you had someone with the Healing skill look at your wounds once an hour or so?
As noted in the book, "Medical attention means that someone with the Healing skill is actively checking the patientís wounds, changing dressings, giving what medicines are available, and generally looking after the patientís well-being."
It's doubtful that the medicine, wound checking, and dressing changes could be done while the patient is working a day job, but the main key would be the last part. Someone else looking after the patient's well-being means the patient hardly has to worry about that at all, which feels counter-intuitive to the patient also working most day jobs.
In short, medical attention to heal wounds tends to involve rest, typically bed rest in a hospital or perhaps home care. It might be possible to pull off some low intensity day jobs, but the person caring for them likely wouldn't be able to do anything other than care for them during that time. _________________ Clint Black
